In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think 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 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 which 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 believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your 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’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck 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
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. 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 at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready 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 that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single 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 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 world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. It’s 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 your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your 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 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 show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are 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 guy 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 you can. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel 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 is going to come back. 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 within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It is 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 middle, from the divine ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which 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 true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of 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’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
