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 lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things because 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 understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, 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’s 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, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are 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 who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once 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 am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places 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 isn’t any luck without you being prepared 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 ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, 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 don’t know your goal, 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 are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not 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 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. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a blessed 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 which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot 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 guys 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 guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s 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 outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. 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. What 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 true power in his book 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’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are 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 does not last. It is 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. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
