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 lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything 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, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe 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 what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people 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 lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands 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 every individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not 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 don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very 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 which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as 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 men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which 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’re in flow, it’s 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 middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One 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 end up 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 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 many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
