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 we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, 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 part 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, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re 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’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You are 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 on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit 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
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand 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 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 great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s 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 understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out 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 are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind 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 listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll 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 of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines 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, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. 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’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would 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 simply need to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It is 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 within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s 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 your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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 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 likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s 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 influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
