Publisher's Summary

In Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how to change lifelong, self-defeating thinking patterns that prevent you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. You may know what to think but find it terribly difficult to change thinking habits that have been with you since childhood.

This business of changing habituated thinking patterns is really the business of eliminating the same old tired excuses. People are forever using excuses and defending those excuse patterns as if they were actually true. But there are no excuses worth defending ever, even if they've always been part of your life.

This audiobook represents Wayne's effort to help anyone whose self-defeating thoughts are persistently present to learn how to discard those old thinking habits - and discover the infinite possibilities of life!

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not that bad but couldn't finish it.

    There is a lot of science to back up Dr. Dyer's conclusions but he ignores that and goes on faith

    Story
    "Really, just... not quite there"

    I've listened to heaps of teachings by all sorts of teachers, especially those from the movie 'The Secret'. I wanted to give Wayne Dyer a go by purchasing this audio programme but... somehow he just doesn't teach very eloquently. There's a lot of teachings on the Tao (Taoism) and all sorts of short stories along the way but in the end I had a big question mark on my head -> what was this guy trying to teach about again?? It's not a terrible audio programme but really not that great either. I'd personally wouldn't recommend this to anyone really. You'd get much better value with material from The Teachings of Abraham (Esther and Jerry Hicks) and other really good ones like Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield or Noah St. John. Seriously, if you can only afford to buy 1 audio programme, I would NOT recommend this one.

    "Motivating!"
    What made the experience of listening to Excuses Begone! the most enjoyable?

    Dr. Wayne Dyer does a wonderful job implementing the teachings of Lao Tsu into this Excuses Begone piece. I Had not heard of Lao Tsu before but have been familiar with some of his quotes for instance, ...A journey of a thousand...begins with the first step.


    Would you recommend Excuses Begone! to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Wayne W. Dyer?

    Yes


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Excuses Begone!?

    It is rewarding changing old and self defeating habits. To not change or to go back to them is disappointing not only to yourself and others but most importantly to Source Energy.

    "Powerful Quotes"
    What made the experience of listening to Excuses Begone! the most enjoyable?

    the many great quotes from the greatest thinkers throughout time.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Wayne W. Dyer – was your favorite?

    Dyer


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    neither...loved the quotes

    Where does Excuses Begone! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Excuses Begone! to and why?

    Joel Osteen - Everyday a Friday. Both talk about eliminating excuses in your life
