Tim Ferris Tribe Of Mentors Book Tour

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 lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if 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 in the world, knowing that whatever issues 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 view 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 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 ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your own 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. I’m 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit 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 occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your 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 lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no 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 prepared in ways 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 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 objective is to figure out that 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 are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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 is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t 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’t have all 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 someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just 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 that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel every thought 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’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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 lots 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 of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self 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 your connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be as 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 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 influential lists, all that changes, all of 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 supposed to give?
