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 lifetime. What I know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything as 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, knowing 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 that 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 without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 that desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared 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 ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that 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 this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It’s 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.
You do not pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very 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 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, 1 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 would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. 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. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group 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’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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 personality 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 eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely 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 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 powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
