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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe 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, 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 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 predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just 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 happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very 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 lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of 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 each individual, 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, 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 do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, 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 feels like that. It is 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a 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 which 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 somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not 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’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just need 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 you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know 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 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’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. 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 of yourself, from your link 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going 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 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 is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
