In this world, there are a lot of things which 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 we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as 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, 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 universe, 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’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 understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re 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’t 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 need 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 hag was hit by that particular 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 that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters 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 at 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 luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, 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 purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a 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 of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have 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 measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group 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’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can. You 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. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know 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 return. It is 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 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’s like this all of the time. It’s 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 in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which created you is the way 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 true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate 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 frequently 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
