Podcast How To Tim Ferris

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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, understanding 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 view 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.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend 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 hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand 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 know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your 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 lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the 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 will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that 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 team, well, it doesn’t matter because each 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 began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to be worried 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. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team 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’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need 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 that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand 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 return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s 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 people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion 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 middle, from the divine ness of 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’re able to 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 personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s 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 that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
