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 life. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you think 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 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 most 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 predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding 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 at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 child. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular 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
Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your 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 great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, every single thing that’s 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 goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out 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 in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a blessed 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 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 show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. How you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will 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 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 outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It’s 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 middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from your link 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when 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. 1 day your breasts are going 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 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 just 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who 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.
