In this world, there are a lot of things which 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 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 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 world, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is 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 without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been 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 when you recognize the mystery of that 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 know this, 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 places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not 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’d 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 that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each person, 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that 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 are able to get about the business of doing this, 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 sort 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 listen to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a 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 would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they are 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s 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 lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going 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 doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. 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’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
