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 life. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case 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 comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, 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’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, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that 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
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had 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’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. 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 at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no 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’s 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 do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world 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 sort of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.
You don’t pay attention 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 the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am 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 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 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 each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.
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, 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’t 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 men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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 simply have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It is 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’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women 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 the time. It is like this. It is 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 center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. That which 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character 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 lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 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 tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
