In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you think 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 into the world, knowing 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 view 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 with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at 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’re not big enough to do it. 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 wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People 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 lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck 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 that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on 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. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a 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 of 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 would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every 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 began. 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 because you can not 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 return 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. Don’t 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 need 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 you have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It’s 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 celestial 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’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing 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 just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that 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.
