In this world, there are a whole lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if 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, 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 world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.
I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I’m 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 that desired to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your 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 lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for each individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot 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 are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s 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 pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You don’t listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. 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 your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t 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 decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve 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 our game up. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t 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 is about what can you do? You just need 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 got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each 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 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 will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, 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, 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 spirit, 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. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re 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 doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s 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. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
