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 believe that you can do everything 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, 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion 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 is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not 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 large enough to do it. You have 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 who desired to have a child. The fact that hag was hit 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 occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all 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 crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot 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 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 due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared 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’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first 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 really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll 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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys 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 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 is 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. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is 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 outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle 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 the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 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 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 is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
