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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become just 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 believe that you walk into 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 world, 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 without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who 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 options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best individuals 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 lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle 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 ready in ways that 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 good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, 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’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability 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’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s 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 do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing that, 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 will 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 this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure 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 man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just need 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 you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s 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 within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness 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 this, 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 true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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 like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s 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.
