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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe 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 experience, 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 world, to be a part 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’re co-creating that life with the ultimate 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 cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. 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 greater than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, 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 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 don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s 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 purpose, 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 have the ability 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. Or that does not 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 pay attention to 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’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. 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 can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. 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 group all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. 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. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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 lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is 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 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 authentic power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be 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 does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
