In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything 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 issues 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 world, to be a portion 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, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact 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 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 don’t believe in luck for me. 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate objective 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 be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t 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’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. How you measure 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 guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not 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 man. It is about what can you do? You simply need 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 you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to 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 will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out 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 ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, 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, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s 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’re 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 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
