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 life. What I know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think 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 think that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.
I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need 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 who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that 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
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have 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 nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any 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 fact is for me and for each individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand 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 are supposed to be doing. 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. It just feels like that. It is 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 don’t listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I am 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’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must 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 can’t 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 men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team 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’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. 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 create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will 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 is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots 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’s like this all of the time. It’s 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 center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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 going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently 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 tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
