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 respond 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’re 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 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 view 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 all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are 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’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 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 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 choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the 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 understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. 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 because of 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 truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, 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 that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not 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 listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, 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, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have 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 up our game. The way you step 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’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 team 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from your link to source energy. That which created you is how 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 publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all 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 meant to give?
