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 lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think 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 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 part 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 knowing that puts you in your 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. You’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been 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 that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re 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, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I didn’t 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 one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not 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. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I’m 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 own 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’t have all of this and not use it for something that 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, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would 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 be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is 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 outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all of 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 in you abides, how far you are from the middle, 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 true power in his publication 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 eliminate 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 end up 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. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
