In this world, there are a 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 now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever problems 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 universe, to be a portion of the energy field which 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 predict 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 cannot 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 on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of 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, that I’m here matters the fact that you’re 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 whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every 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 do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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’s 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 do not listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that 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’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’t 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’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because 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 it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they are 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’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that 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’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand 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 into the world is going to 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 is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all of 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 celestial ness yourself, from the link 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 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 spirit, 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 likely to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
