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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just 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, 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 most 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 without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re 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 not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend 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 that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of 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 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 lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not 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’re 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. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 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 team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody 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 up our game. How you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot 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. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at 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 need to run that race as hard as possible. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel 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’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are 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’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center 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 the connection to source energy. What created you is the way 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 publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true 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 going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
