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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if 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 believe 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 comprehension 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 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 predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at 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. 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 that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular 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 once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. 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 lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared 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 prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, every single 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 goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able 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 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 do not focus on 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 pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 not have all this and not use it for something which 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 each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not 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 is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think 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 will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There is 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 out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. 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 celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book 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 is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
