Yes, I would try another book but with caution. I don't like the way he constantly refers to his accomplishments and successes, when this book is supposed to be, in part, about losing your ego and living in the moment. Also, this book is too long! And his approach to delivering long lists is tedious.
The book was way too long for the points he was making. It got really tedious after a while hearing him go through list after list after list.
Hi voice is fine but every time he recited a quote from the beginning of a new chapter and elsewhere in his book he would announce loudly "Quote" finishing with "End of Quote". The repetition of this got tedious and irritating.
There are some good messages contained within the book. They could have been highlighted in a book one quarter of the size and they would have stood out more. Because the book was so long and tedious, it was hard to be left with anything that really stood out. I do remember him saying that when you woke up in the morning you should think of doing something for someone else that day, and to always bring a present (doesn't have to be material) when you go visit someone. I know he said a lot more than that but this is what I remember!
I think Wayne Dyer has some good ideas and they are worth getting out there. For me, however, less lists and less reference to traditional religion would be more enlightening and helpful. I get the feeling that he is aiming this at the masses and knows that the bulk of the population want familiar references to scriptures peppered throughout his teachings. That's fair enough if that is your bent, but since I wanted something more objective and spiritual and original, he didn't help me much. Perhaps others would feel more connection to him if your starting point is more traditional to begin with.
Fear is the mind Killer, so Face Your Fear
He spoke to a lot of spirituality, but not of dealing with the excuses. It seemed to be a book to make me feel better about who I am, but still not really give me the tools to move forward to become better.
Probably not. He does not speak to me. to soft of an approach. He reads like the 90s. A lot of self help books that make me feel better for a short time, but no tools for a real solution.
Dull, slow. He put me to sleep.
It was probably just me. I could not connect with him.
I didn't align as quickly with Excuses Begone! as some of Dr. Dyer's other writings, but gained helpful insight to living peacefully none the less.
Excuses Begone! harmoniously reflects Byron Katie's A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are. It is always good for me to hear something put several different ways so that I'm sure to get what is intended for me to retain.
Not sure how to answer this as I believe that I hear exactly what is intended for me to hear for my best peaceful comfort.
I learned an interesting practice of contemplating myself as I already am and noticing how God blesses me with experiences in everyday life to confirm my contemplations.
An inspiring and uplifting book.
Yes. As good as the Wayne Dyer's other performances I listened to.
I think it is better to savour it making pauses to reflect and follow the recommendations.
I recommend it.
Yes, but not before warning them that the narration is done by the author, and is not as high quality as one sometimes would expect. The subject of the book is wonderful and the premise of the Excuses Begone paradigm is very inspiring and life-changing, but the audio book would have been top notch if they had used a professional reader.
No, definitely not. This book is too long for that, and a little repetitive at times.
Overall, an inspiring and enlightening book.
A mixture of the physical & spiritual. Very real. I have/will listen to this many times over and experience something new every time.
I was excited to get this book. Once I got going, I felt as if I were being scammed. There was some info that just isn't true and I had a hard time getting past that. If I hadn't known better, then I may have thought more of it.
Its exactly what some of us need to hear to change our blueprint for a better life
I like Dr. Dyer and his views on life skills, so I will probably skip the audio book and go with either paper or Kindle edition next time.
A good, common-sense approach to living life and improving self-esteem.
Anyone who is a professional narrator.
Enjoyed thoroughly. Have been listening repeatedly to assimilate things. Really helping in stemming out old & unproductive thinking habits
