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 life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything 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, understanding 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 universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I’m 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 larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts 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 don’t believe in luck for me. 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 due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot 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 are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t 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 don’t 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 listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 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 somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. 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 isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation because 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. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. 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 know that each thought that I think 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 come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is how 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 true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 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 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’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 many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
