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 react 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, understanding that whatever problems you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding 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 portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.
I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been 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 understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you’re 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’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal 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’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able 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 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 don’t listen to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are 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 can’t do it. I have 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 that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. 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 is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create 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’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 which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. 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 center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. What 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 authentic 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 is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going 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 does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, 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 frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
