interview oprah winfrey lance armstrong

In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever issues 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 most things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding 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 in 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were 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 when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances 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’m here matters 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 puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck 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’d 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand 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 are supposed to do. The sooner you are able 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’s that it’s that sort 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 do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time that 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 decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step up our game. How you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t 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 just 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 you got to take responsibility for the space. 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’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think 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 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’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside 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 flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from your link 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of 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?
