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 life. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding 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 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, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in 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. You’re not big enough to do it. I am 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hand 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 every individual, 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 do not understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. 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’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on 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. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot 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 not have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal 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, got to step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.
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 states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from your connection 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is 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’re not going to be as 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 does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is 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 were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
