Tim Ferris Favorite Self Help Book

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 we all 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 into the world, understanding that whatever issues you may encounter, 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 world, 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 with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific 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 party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re 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’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, each and every thing that’s 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 goal, 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 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind 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 don’t listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. 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 will 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 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 every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man 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 that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they are 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. 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 center, from the celestial ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your personality 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 eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are 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 like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
