In this world, there are a 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 now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things as you have been 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 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your 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. You’re 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 on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that 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 options that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m 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 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 whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not 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 do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not 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. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a 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 which is for the greater good, your goal, 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 structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is 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. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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 says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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 plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio 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 divine ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which created you is how 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 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 is cause you don’t lose 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 as 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 like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
