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 lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things because 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, understanding that whatever issues 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 universe, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.
I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I think 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 everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 just your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. 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 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 truth 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just 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 don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all this and not use it for something which 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 each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man 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 men are. And if they’re 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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 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’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each 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 into the world will come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women 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 flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your link to source energy. That which created you is the way 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 authentic 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 eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
