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 know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do all things as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that 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 happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once 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 have to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best individuals 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. 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 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is 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. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll 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 somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve 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 step up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. 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 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 in 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 simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all 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 in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication 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 eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s 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 influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
