In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything as 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 encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t 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 big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, 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’re supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world 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 is that it’s that kind 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. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a blessed 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 which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just 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 have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio 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 middle, from the divine ness 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 can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
