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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe 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 into the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big 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 only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 prepared 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’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal 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 do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 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 every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over 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 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 look back 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. Don’t 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can. 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’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know 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’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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 lots of other men and women 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 is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion 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 divine ness of yourself, from the 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 true power in his publication 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 is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
