In this world, there are a whole 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 know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe 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 in 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 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 most 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 think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck 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 happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m 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 best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared 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 that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for each individual, each and every 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 goal, your immediate goal 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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. 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. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot 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 of 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 structures.
There’ve 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 measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not 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 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 you have to take responsibility for the distance. 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’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It’s 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 that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s 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 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. 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, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful 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 frequently 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, 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’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
