4 Hour Work Week Chapter Notes

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 lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, 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 universe, to be a part of the energy field which 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 knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you 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 out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s 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. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

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 our game up. 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 is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men 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. Don’t 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’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, 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. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be as 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 just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
