Tim Ferris Best Books About Productivity

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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you’re 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 issues you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that particular 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
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of 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 nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to 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 fact is for me and for every 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not 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. It is 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 are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a lucky 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 goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. 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’d say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s 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’re 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 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 center, 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, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when 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 amazing you are. One 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s just 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 frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
