Jim Gaffigan 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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in 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 that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

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 greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. 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 desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were 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 once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of 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 accident. 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 puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands 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 truth is for me and for each individual, 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know 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 do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really 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. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own 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’t have all of 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’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way 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 guy. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not 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’s 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 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 is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought 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 come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center 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 connection to source energy. That which created you is how 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, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be 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 is like the most beautiful flowering tree, 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
