In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. 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 think 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 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 portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit 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 once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I’m here matters 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 are always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any 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 hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t 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 you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able 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 doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is 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 do not listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone 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 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 somebody else was coming out, one 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 would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know 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 true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your link to source energy. What created you is the way 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 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 beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently 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.
