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 all of us become just what you believe. So if you think 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 issues you may encounter, 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 part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your own 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. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been 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 party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are 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 are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. 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 don’t listen 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 that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because every 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 started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy 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 it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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 man. It is 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 distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I feel 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’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio 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 center, from the celestial ness yourself, from your 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 book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that is 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 beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you get yourself 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 is 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 frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
