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 life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into 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 part of the energy field that 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 understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at 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. 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 on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you are 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’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any 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 did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not 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 are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in 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 is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because each 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 started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is 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 are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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 man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s 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 will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. 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. That which created you is how 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, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be as 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 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 many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
