Iris Apfel Book Barnes And Noble

In this world, there are a whole 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 exactly what you believe. So if 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 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 universe, to be a part 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, knowing 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 what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re 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 on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who 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 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 conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals 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 lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with 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 that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are 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 is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines 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 reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can’t 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. 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. 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 to the world will come back. It is 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 is already done. There is 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 are 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 flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character 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 eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
