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 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’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe 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 universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world 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 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 listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 goal, 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 someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to 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 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. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can. 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’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that each 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 to the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own 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’s 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 middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of 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’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 spirit, that is authentic 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 going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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 shrub, 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
