In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case 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, 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.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest 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 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 need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been 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 party that is.
So once you recognize 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 know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts 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 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 hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are 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 this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really 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. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing this, 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 anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time 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 decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone 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 started. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy 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’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible. 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 space. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought 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 come back. It is 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 lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial 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’re able to 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 spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who 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.
