How many people have been in programs that tells you: "You can't do such-and-such a thing; you can't do it here, not here, not in here. Show of hands."




And the only way to break that barrier is to tell people that you are in control. You are in control over your own life and in your own ways. And tell people -- be honest and be sincere -- and say that: "I am in control over my life; not you tell us what to do and how to control your money and how to control who's in control." And that's what I go around the country saying: "Who is in control?"


I been at London, England 'bout three years ago and I said the same thing and I got the very round of applause, clapping: Who's in control? Because sometimes people think that you can't do it; you can't do the things that you're 'posed to do. They don't trust you enough. If you be honest enough that they might trust you, if you do the things that you're supposed to do.


I mean every day that you live in your program, that they're not supposed to tell you how to make changes come. How to make people listen to you?


Listen -- listen: is two different things. Listen and telling somebody what to do is two different things. And it's hard to listen to, to understand people.


I'm not going to take up too much of your time. I'm gonna just say: Thank you for this, for me to come here and speak. I'm want to give honor to Patrick Worth for allowing me to come here and speak to you and for all this week. Thank you very much.
