Tim Ferriss Podcast Tribe Of Mentors

In this world, there are a lot of things that 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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as 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 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 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 call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe 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 own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only 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 were 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 when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every 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 don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out 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 in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very 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 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, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will make 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 will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is how 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 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 is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 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 many times you get yourself 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 shrub, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just 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 that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
