Tim Ferris 4 Hour Work Week Summary

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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case 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 believe that you walk into the world, understanding 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 perspective 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.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t 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 need 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 that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific 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 understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your 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 great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single 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 that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s 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 don’t pay attention 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 this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not 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’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is 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’d say to my group all the time. Do not 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 man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will 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 is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is the way 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, when 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 lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be 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 is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is 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 of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
