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 exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are 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 can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that 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 happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. 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 hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways 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 one 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 objective is to figure out that 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. 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, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very long time I am a lucky 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 intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t 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 return and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is 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 center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can align with that, 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 soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, 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 frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
