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 we all become exactly what you believe. So if 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 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 that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 call that God, but I do nothing without that, 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 in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that 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 happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, that I am 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 very 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us 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 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 don’t listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a lucky 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 goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. 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 guys are. And if they’re 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 is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply 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 that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is 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’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.
When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s 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 that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
