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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things as you’re 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 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 portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 with no 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 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’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 larger than you. And not only your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been 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 party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact 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 individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you in 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 prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each person, 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal 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 this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. It’s 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’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t 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 structures.

There have been over 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 our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think 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’s 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’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty 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 is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself 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 the link to source energy. What 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic 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 is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 many times 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
