James Altucher Notes On Tools Of Titans Tim Ferris

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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe 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 think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever issues 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 world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think 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. You are not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big 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 only your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very best people 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hands 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 fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re 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 in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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 listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a blessed 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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in 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 just have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought that 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 come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re 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 proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, 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’s 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 end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not 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, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
