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 recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    People think they have so many problems in life. And they are right. The good news is you have the choice to think you have no problems at all. Either way you are correct.

    Story
    "uplifting and challenging"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already suggested this book (particularly in audio form) to many people. Wayne Dyer is such a good speaker, listening to him speak in the audible book gives you time to have it all set in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Excuses Begone!?

    So much of this stayed with me, I have listened over and over and over because it is life affirming.


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

    N/A


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is hard to shut it off but it is packed with a lot of information, so it is best to listen to it over time, and then listen again.


    Any additional comments?

    EVERYONE should listen to this a least once, the world would be in a better place mentally and emotionally.

    Story
    "Enlightening!"
    Would you listen to Excuses Begone! again? Why?

    It had been a long time since I had read Wayne Dyer. He's got a great life story and is very sincere in his philosophy of looking honestly at what's going on and creating the life you want. This book had a lot of references to the wisdom of the Tao (not sure how to spell it) so that's next on my list. Very inspiring - highly recommended!


    What about Wayne W. Dyer’s performance did you like?

    Sincerity


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't kept up with Wayne, get this book!

    "No Five Stars Here"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I am big fan of


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It was very repetitive, and I felt like Wayne started to explain but then left out all of the examples. I think listeners need instructions on how to apply what they are learning, not try and figure it out on their own.


    Have you listened to any of Wayne W. Dyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Was Excuses Begone! worth the listening time?

    I couldn't finish it.

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

    Not that bad but couldn't finish it.


    What was most disappointing about Wayne W. Dyer???s story?

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


    Did Excuses Begone! inspire you to do anything?

    Not really
