Tim Ferris Mr Mustache Podcast Episode

In this world, there are a lot of things which 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 we all become just 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 in the world, knowing that whatever problems 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 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 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 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. I’m 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 just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hands 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 fact is for me and for each person, each and every 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 don’t 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 do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort 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 do not listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. I’m 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 a very 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 that 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 someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man 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 possible. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel 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 is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my 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’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s 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 yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re 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 doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s 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 influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
