Timothy Ferriss 4 Hour Work Week

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 now know is that we all become exactly 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, 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s 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 understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your 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. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, the fact 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 divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out 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 universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just 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 pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot 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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because 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 men are. 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’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

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 within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It’s 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 within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the 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 can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that is 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 going 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
