Tim Ferriss 4 Hour Chef Audiobook

In this world, there are a 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 in case you think that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in 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 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 most 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 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 ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s 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 am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular 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 when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, 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 lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready 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 ready in ways that I did not 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 you 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 objective 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 be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It is 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 is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very 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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal 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 our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it’s 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 are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You will 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. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into 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’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out 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 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 of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever 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 character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is 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 frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
