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 lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, 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’s 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 own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that 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 celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people 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 lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate objective 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 be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to 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. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, 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 that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something that 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 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, must step up our game. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Do not 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. You will 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 space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into 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 will do unto you. It’s 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 are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
