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 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 into 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part 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 with no 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 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 are not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a child. 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 choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all 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, that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks 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 lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 ready in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth 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 good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s 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 do not pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re 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 personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for quite a 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 that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides 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 show two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can not 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 men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible.
What I know is 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 meanI understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create 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 is 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 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 is like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center 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 the connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can align with this, 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 is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be 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 does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
