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 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 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 in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, 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 call 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 ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that 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
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared 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’s 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 goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It is 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. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time 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 every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure 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 man. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is 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 got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought that 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 come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. 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 middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from the 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, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 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’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 influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
