In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, understanding 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return 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’d say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. 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 is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself 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 shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
