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!

Yes! I learn more every time I listen. It is like enjoying a great bottle of wine, one sip at a time!
I still re-read every one of his books and learn more each time. That just it.
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
Yes Dr Dyer has a great voice and his narration brings the book to life.
Dr Dyer mention 2 books, the biology of belief and virus of the mind. They are great additions, to anyone in search of themselves.
The example he gave about his son.
imagine what I can achieve if i could just let go of my excuses.
I am a fan of Dr Dyer work, I have truly learnt heaps form him. I love this book.
thank you Mr Dyer!
Breaks down how to overcome our common excuses. Explains why most of our habits are formed.
Excellent voice and timing.
There is no greater love, than the love for food!
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.
Yes. Substancial information worth of studying during a lifetime.

This Book will move you into the next level of your life.
Must read book for anyone who would like a better life.
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.
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.
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
If you are looking for inspiration on where to go with your life and to realise that you need to live in the now, hear the words of Dr Dyer. A great orator, natural and down to earth, he helps you get to grips with how we all use excuses as reasons for us not fulfilling our potential, and living a life full of empathy and love. He has a great mellow voice too, I'd recommend it!
Another beautiful book by Wayne Dyer. I might not be the right one to review his work, because I simply love this man. This book and many others from Dyer has given me so much inspiration. My life is more beautiful because of his work.
I have overcome heavy things with Dyer and this book just gives more mind food ;)
I have been following Wayne Dyer for many many years & I truly have admired him for the path he has been on & to inform us of some of the errors or changes that he has made along his path. Wayne Dyer is authentic, warming & human, this book is another one of those you have to listen or read again. I've listened to the book twice & will keep revisiting it for many years to come.
Check out Wayne Dyer movie The Shift it's a 'must have' movie to watch again & again.
Really liked listening to this book on the walk to work and back - very inspiring and sets out clearly all the ways we hold ourselves back. Not sure if I can put it all into practice now but I will certainly be listening to this more than once - thought it was great. Will be looking out for more books by this author as I felt much more positive hearing how to overcome self-imposed limitations.
"A tough love approach to change"
Kind, honest, empowering
Wayne Dyer was a wonderful, generous, gently and wise man. I miss him already and am so thankful he left behind so much good work.
This is a no nonsense book on how to face your habitual thinking and it encourages you to be truthful with yourself. I shall listen to this book many times as once is definitely not enough.
"lots of food for thought"
I found te start a bit hard going but once I got into it, it really made me think and see life in a different way
"Pause for thought...."
I have been a great fan of Wayne Dyer for some considerable years and it all began when I first read his books 'You'll See it when you Believe it' and 'Pulling your own strings'. As much as I enjoyed listening to 'Excuses Begone' this book, narrated by the great man himself, is going over work that he has written before. The book on the whole is very inspiring and I found myself suddenly thinking about things that I had forgotten from writings before and there are a few new ideas and contemplations. You will need to ponder whether you would want this lifestyle and I believe that the difficulty rating is high (although, no doubt, Wayne would consider this an excuse), but I would recommend reading it to decide for yourself whether or not Wayne is the man to teach you to reach a higher perspecive of your self being, and you will be inspired if this is the first book of Wayne's that you have read. It is do-able.
I really enjoyed this book by the late Dr Wayne Dyer. Easy to listen to and understand. Just need to put it all into practice now.
"Not really my cup of tea"
More of a spiritual look on how to overcome excuse mentality. Some good points but not enough workable solutions to make this book worthwhile. Certainly not recommended as an audio book as becomes extremely irritating with the authors insistence on the need to say "quote..... unquote" when citing other people (of which there are many)!
"Life changing book"
I've listened to the book a few times since I bought it on Audible. The more you listen the more it sinks in.
The list of excuses and how to address these really made sense. The list seems to cover almost all common excuses. Dr Dyer breaks down these excuses in a way that's difficult to argue against.
I prefer books where the author is also the narrator. The meaning behind the words really comes through with Dr Dyer's passion.
Excuses be gone! Stop making excuses - start living!
A life changing book. It really should be taught in school. I'm not at all religious and usually quite uncomfortable when books refer to a god. But the book's meaning of god, of good made a lot of sense. In fact it's easy to see how many religions have based many of their principles on those explored in thus book.
