In this world, there are a whole 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 exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things as you’re 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 problems 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 world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think 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. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that 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 occur 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 circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People 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 lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one 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 are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 don’t 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 that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve 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 not have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, 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 reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got 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’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will 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 men and women 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 is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic 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 going to bag and you’re not going to be as 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 doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
