In this world, there are a whole lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if 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 believe that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever problems 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 universe, to be a portion 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 predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. 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 greater than you. And not only 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 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 once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s 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 do not understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you are 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’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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have 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 our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re 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 is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can. 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 space. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each 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 the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own 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 is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio 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 divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way 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 publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 frequently 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 is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
