Best Book For Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs Tim Ferris

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 know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you believe 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 believe that you walk into the world, understanding 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that 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 without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re 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 greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once 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 know this, that I’m 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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’s that it’s that sort 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. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. 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 different. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 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 reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is 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 is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know 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 to the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It’s 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 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, regardless of what 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, when 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 amazing you are. 1 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 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’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
