david letterman interviews oprah winfrey

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 life. What I know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do all things 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 issues 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 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 is 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 think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate 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 can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. 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 larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that 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 understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are 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 great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not 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 due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each individual, 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 know your goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability 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. Or that does not 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 do not 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. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 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 be worried about the other guy in any situation because 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 it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You will 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. That is 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 to the world will come back. It’s 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 is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty 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’s like this all of the time. It is 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 center, from the divine ness yourself, from your 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 authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, 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. One 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 many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
