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 know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe 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 believe that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that particular 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 celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of 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 nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are 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 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’d 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 truth is for me and for each 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 understand your purpose, 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 do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us 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 focus on 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 listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time I am a blessed 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 goal, 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, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you step up your game is not to be worried 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 is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time in 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’s 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 space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There’s 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 are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s 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 in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from the 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 book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing 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 many times 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, 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 many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
