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 know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever issues 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 perspective 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 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 with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest 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 cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need 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 wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
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 the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to 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 every person, every single thing that has 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 don’t 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’re 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 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 do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very long time I am a lucky 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over 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 guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. 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 at 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 is about what can you do? You just have 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 that you got to take responsibility for the space. 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’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I 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 into the world is going to come back. It is 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 which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from your link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can 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 soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going 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 many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
