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 react to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think 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 in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, 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 world, to be a portion 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, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing 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 need to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck 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 understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you are 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 at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being prepared 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 truth is for me and for each person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one 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 out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. 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 feels like that. It is 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 don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have 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 that 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you step 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’s 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 are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in 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 just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that 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 is my religion. That is the fundamental, 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 will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s 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 that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out 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 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 center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, 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 eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One 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 how many 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 is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most powerful 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 meant to give?
