4 Hour Work Week Ferriss

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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything as you have been 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 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 portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think 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 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. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hands 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 truth 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 don’t understand your goal, 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 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 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 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 do not pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all 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’d 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 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, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. 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’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is 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 you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle 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 how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, 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 true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be as 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 just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just 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. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
