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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things as 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 view 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.

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 ultimate 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. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific 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 recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed 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’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t 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 because of my hands 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, 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 do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to 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 pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. 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 men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just 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. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is 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 center of your self 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 the link to source energy. What created you is how 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 true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going 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 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 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 that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?

In this world, there are a 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 we all become just 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 think that you walk into the world, knowing 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 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 without that, knowing 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 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are 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 great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 truth is for me and for every person, 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are 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’s odd.

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 do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 not 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, 1 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, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man 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 that it takes to return 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 team all the time. Do not waste your time in 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 have to run that race as hard as you can. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. It is 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 is an energy field. There is an energy flow that 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 is like this it’s like this all 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 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 the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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 personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
