In this world, there are a lot of things that 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 we all become just what you believe. So if you think 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 think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever problems you may experience, 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. 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 larger than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact 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 options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I’m here matters that you are 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 puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t 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 not have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man 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 guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I think every thought 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 will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which 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’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself 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 connection 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, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic 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 likely to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
