In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
