Tim Ferriss Questions Tribe Of Mentors

In this world, there are a whole lot of things that 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 just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever problems 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.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck 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 happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand 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 well. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. 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 because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, 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 be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first 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 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 do not listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I am 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’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not 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 would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy 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 team all the time. Don’t 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 man. It is about what can you do? You simply have 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 you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are 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 is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your link 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 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 spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are likely 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, 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 of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
