Great book. This book will change your life . Thank you Wayne Dyer for everything
I've struggled with excuses short changing me from happiness! No More! Excuses Be Gone! Dr. Dyer will forever be remembered and loved for his wisdom and teachings!
This is an eye opener. Shows how our ego affects our decisions and hence our lives as a whole. Will be reading this again.
Maybe writing a review without fully taking it all in, but it seems Dr. Dyer insists on mixing useful thoughts on self improvement with the "proven" ability for thoughts to affect particles, and the environment, etc. Yes, my calling bs is a thought, and it caused the particles of my fingers to push the keyboard particles, or whatever. Sure, proven enough, there's some credence there I suppose, to a degree, but lets not call it hard science and then expect people to buy in. He describes the power of the placebo effect. I get it, belief is tremendously powerful. Can the author convey how to harness it in a way that rational people can believe? Hardly. More of the Secret, mixed with telling us how much he loves the Tao te Ching, and quotes from books past. Save your money.
When the Student Is Ready The Teacher (BOOKS) Appears....
This book is powerful, it is one of Wayne's most practical book, he is always powerful is his philosophy, but he creates a masterful way to apply the Excuses Be Gone practices.....what can I say I wil Always love Wayne
This book was very disappointing. I bought it looking for a clear and concise method to become more disciplined. Instead what I found was a handful of good tips drowned in a sea of spiritual woo woo and new age nonsense.
There is only one chapter that I considered useful (chapter 3) in which he lists 17 of the most commonly used excuses for not accomplishing one's goalsand solutions to overcome them. And even then, the advice he gives is not that good. Like one excuse is "it will be difficult" and his solution is something like "think instead that it's NOT going to be hard. But it's actually going to be easy." What kind of advice is that? A better advice would be something like "yes it's going to be difficult, but that's gonna make the reward a lot more gratifying. You don't want to go about your life always taking the easy path."
The other chapters are just spiritual woo woo thrown in at random. He quotes the bible, he quotes the Dao Te Ching. He says that basically the way to be disciplined and stop making excuses is to be in harmony with God. So if you believe in nonsense this book might help you.
There are some good things about this book. The narration is very well performed and edited. Also the author seems very passionate about what he teaches, and I can say the most negative things about this book but I highly respect him for that. Maybe just his confidence and passion will inspire you.
All in all, not bad, but definitely not what I was expecting.
