I most liked the way Wayne removed many of the reasons for resorting to excuses. I least liked the reference to a vague spiritual being controlling our lives. Its a bit "spiritual" for my logical way of thinking
Clear, engaging and smooth
Recognise the excuse making I do on a daily basis and to try and stop it
Just to set the record straight, I reviewed Meditation and Psychotherapy accidently as another book I got, unfortunately it will not allow me to change anything but the stars, Audible said you cannot change it or delete. the book is AWESOME! Tara Brach is Awesome! The book I was rating I returned and was aweful. sorry
Yes, because I learn from it each time I read it, it transformed my life!
Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, because it also teaches how to stop living in yesterday and projecting into the future. I recommend Wayne Dyer before Tolle as Tolle went over my head until I read a few of Dyers books.
yes. I have listened to most of Wayne Dyers, I am partial to this one because it was the catalyst that started my awakening and getting out of my negative thinking pattern.
I wanted to but could not, too much to absorb.
The first time I read this was about a year ago in Kindle format, I was in deep depression and had suffered from it most of my adult life, having had a bad childhood and broken marriage, i made an identity for myself from it and didnt know it, This book showed me how I was creating my own suffering by the power of my thoughts! I highly recommend anyone ready for a drastic change in their lives to get this book, the audible or the paper back Just get it! For Christians, be open to other beliefs it doesnt mean you have to change your spirtitual life, it means it will enhance it, whatever you dont believe toss it but dont let it stop you from reading this book. I have been a christian a long time but still suffered from my self induced suffering, no more! Excuses are gone! Thank you Wayne Dyer
No, print version is better.
Too many to list here. It was hard to stay focused at times, but the content was so good that I did my best.
His voice was a little too monotone for me. I like to watch Dr Wayne's videos, would imagine seeing him live is awesome, love his books, and really love his material.
An eye and mind opening book. How easily we sabotage our lives with excuses. Wayne does a great job of helping the reader eliminate excuses for not living in harmony with our higher being. Excellent book!
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
Dr. Dyer is a great read and he has a great voice as well. I enjoyed the book very much and I recommend it to anyone who is trying to move past all the mediocrity in life. He is very inspirational.
To hear Wayne's story and perspective on excuses is RIGHT ON! I thank our Divine God for blessing (us) and me with his story and forward thinking. Blessings
Forward thinking is a necessity in life to move forward. Connecting with God and listening to our inner spirit:) Yummy
Humble Human and being real.
Thank you Wayne Dyer, may our paths cross one day:) Divine Guidance, listen, be present and Love. Blessings to all reading this!!
I'm a huge Wayne Dyer fan and have many of his books in audio form. It makes a wonderful solution to drive time listening. I focus on something positive and lose the road rage. I love his reading style because he sounds so conversational and not like many authors who don't seem to know their own writings. I highly recommend it.
I read a review that commented that he read to fast. I disagree and guess that's a matter of taste. I would also say that one of the great things about an audio book is that you can rewind if you don't get it the first time. I usually listen to my "positive thinking" books more than once because I always seem to get more with repeated listening!
I love this audio!! Many times words get lost when we are reading therefore the message is lost also. HEARING Dr. Dyer say what we think was all i needed for yet another step forward in my life. I am giving this book to 2 people as a gift!
I really enjoyed this series and would highly recommend it to anyone! It is upbeat yet brings home many important ideas that can be helpful to anyone at any age throughout one's lifetime. Dr Dyer is an inspiring speaker and teacher.
All of the immediate solutions he provided.
His own personal stories about himself, his health, how these principles he is talking ab out improved his life and his family interactions etc.
Too many to list. This is just a fabulous series that I will listen to more than once .
If you buy this you won't be disappointed! He is just awesome and this is a very useful series for anyone anytime for a happy life.
The blurb for this title did not give any hint of the entrenchment of "new age" pseudoscientific ideas. I may be hasty in my review but I couldn't get passed chapter 2 because I disagree with the premise so strongly.
The general idea is "Using your thoughts to change your genetics to make your thoughts better." Even if this where possible it's a pretty circular approach to self help.
Here's an excerpt from chapter 2:
"The new biology says that there's an energy field surrounding and contained in all your cells and this field is influenced by your beliefs, more over it is from this field that all particles are created. It is the soul governing function of the body.
Here in the 21st century science invites you to stop being a victim of your genetic makeup because a large body of evidence demonstrates empirically that that your beliefs can change your genes."
If the description or blurb contained such language i would have avoided this book. This passage contains ill conceived uses of the words empirical and energy. Does he actually propose that people changing their genes through thought has been observed under blinded experimental conditions where the results are repeatable, passed peer review and published in a reputable journal? Empirical proof of a mystical energy field alone would be enough to turn all of known science on its head.
Science at even a middle school level teaches that energy is no more than a measurement of work potential. There is stored energy in a coiled spring or in a battery. How is work potential stored in an ethereal "field", how are "all particles" created within said field. Can you imagine this phenomenon being observed and recorded under experimental conditions? How could such a thing be observed, recorded and shown to be empirical?
Nice voice, good reader, seems like an accessible person.
I got if free as part of a promotion.
I realise that it has good reviews and that it could potentially be an effective book but it simply does not fit my understanding of how the world works.
