In this world, there are a 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 now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything because 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, knowing that whatever problems 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 world, to be a portion of the energy field that 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 think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were 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 party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. 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 places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no 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 hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has 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 goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out 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 world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really 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 is 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. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your 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 not have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, 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’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s 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’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group 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 is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know 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 to the world is going to come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

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 plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio 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 yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are 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 does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
