Disney Book Tim Ferris

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 know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if 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 think 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 world, 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 call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe 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 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 have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who 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 choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people 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 lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 hands 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 fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re 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 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 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. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own 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’t have all 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 every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team 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 simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know 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’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is 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 are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from the 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 authentic 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 authentic power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 frequently 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 is just 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 of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
