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 lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So in case 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 think that you walk in 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 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 understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen 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 the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared 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 prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that 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 is odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not 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. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll 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 of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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 more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men 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 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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 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 is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is 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 are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self 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 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 authentic 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’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s 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 many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
