In this world, there are a whole lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. 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 believe that you walk into the world, understanding 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is 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 knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. 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 greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that particular 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 celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places 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 luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to 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 every individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us 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 don’t focus on 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. 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 are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. 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 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 goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy 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 group all the time. Do not waste your time at 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 is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to 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’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It’s 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 in you abides, how far you are from the middle, 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 can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
