the many great quotes from the greatest thinkers throughout time.
Happy that it ended only for the reason that I'm a life-long learner so most of the teachings, ideals are not new to me. Great book that I think our pre-teens and teenages should be listening to.
neither...loved the quotes
I really enjoyed listening to Dr Dyer on my walks. I sometimes have a hard time reading his books, but listering was easy and I was able to go back and repeat anything that I wanted to think about.
Joel Osteen - Everyday a Friday. Both talk about eliminating excuses in your life
There's a lot of good quotes and wisdom here. A very helpful book.
When an author reads their book and it's about making changes to one's life and the author has employed the techniques described in the book it is a reinforcement of their validity.
Wayne has a enjoyable, easy to listen to style. The content was applicable personally and each time I go through the tapes.. if find more things to ponder. Well worth the time if you are looking to have peace and improve your outlook on life.
It seems the audio is not necessarily just a narration. This adds more insight.
I will be taking responsibility for my thoughts and actions. I am the one that controls myself.... and I won't be waiting for the approval or response from others. Being true to myself brings peace.
Like the proverbial oyster, Dr. Dyer takes on the tiny irritants in life, the ones that can grow eventually throwing you off course and into a ditch. Through his teaching and with your time and work they will cease being problems and in fact can be beautifully transformed... similar to the creation of a lustrous pearl.
The simple yet most powerful suggestion spoken by the wise hermit residing in a tree. So he says:
Going to the beautiful waterfall and pool on Maui for a swim to prepare to write the next chapter. I will be sitting in contemplation envisioning this scenario starting now!
Not really, it's better digested bit by bit.
I, for some reason, didn't like the title - specifically the
This is one of those books you have to listen to over and over again. There is so much powerful information that Dr. Wayne Dyer teaches you it's almost impossible to catch everything first time around.
I love all of Dr. Wayne Dyers audiobooks and speeches.
Dr. Dyer does it again with an excellent narrative on how to eliminate excuses from one's life. The book starts a little slowly but begins to pick up by part two. By the third section, Dyer has really found his groove in explaining his Excuses Begone! paradigm.
Dr.Dyer is an excellent orator but his performance is affected by a somewhat poorer sound quality than that found on his other recordings. If the listener can get past this aspect, the experience will be enriching and should add value to his/her life. Cheers. KJ
This is one of the most profound yet simple messages that each and everyone of us struggle with. From infants we learn to create excuses versus choosing from a powerful place...simple yet profound, right?.
Dr. Dyer reiterated the power of our free will to choose our thoughts and how these thoughts affect our lives. Since WE have the free will to choose our thoughts (good/bad/indifferent/healthy/loving/positive/negative/fearful/etc) we have the amazing power to change whatever isn't working in our lives simply by changing our thoughts!
Dr. Dyers's message is that "Our thoughts dictate our success and happiness in this world". Again, sounds so simple, yet we've convoluted the concept. Dr. Dyer is brilliantly articulate, easy to listen to, and inspirational in his approach. Hands down and MUST READ OR LISTEN TO...you choose, but DON'T MISS IT!!

Lots of great advice on motivation and mindset. I thought many of his 'principles' were very useful and well thought out. Some of his advice will only work for a certain 'class' of people - he seems to make the assumption that everyone who is able to listen to this audiobook has the same ability to create opportunities. I'm not sure that is true, but I fall into his demographic, so it was motivational for me.
I loved this book. This book answered a lot of questions. Was entertaining, energizing and enlightening.
I will listen to it again because there is so much to take in. I listened to Making The Shift straight after this one and found that the combination of the 2 books, has joined all the dots for me. These audio books have changed my life.
