He’s always been a big fan of Wayne Dyer. And I’ve always been a big fan of improving my husband. So it was the perfect gift. Win win.
I gave him this one first:
Good place to start. NO MORE EXCUSES! I really like that idea. We all like to make excuses – it makes us feel better. But the excuses help keep us locked in the same place. I’m a problem solver by nature, and so I really like to get past the excuses and solve the problem. I think it’s much easier in the long run. Who cares why I did or didn’t do something? Let’s move on and figure out a better way.
Now, I know that’s much easier said than done. We’re human, after all. But the bottom line is excuses keep us stuck, so we need to think about this another way. Wayne Dyer gives us a hand in Excuses Begone!
In his usual motivational style, Wayne breaks down the thinking patterns that keep us stuck in excuse mode. And he provides practical ways to try and shift that thinking. Even taking just of few of his ideas and incorporating them into your life can lead to major dividends.
So what happens when you’ve dropped all the excuses and are ready to move on to doing great things? Well, this book tells you how to create the life you want to live.
Wishes Fulfilled is a little more spiritual, and focuses on the manifesting power that Dyer believes exists in all of us. We all know that everything that exists was once imagined, and Dyer teaches you how to use your imagination and re-educate your subconscious mind to create change your outer world.
Both of these books leave you feeling positive and keenly aware of your potential. I do believe that with a positive frame of mind we can achieve anything we choose, and that negative thinking patterns really hold us back. Wayne Dyer really helps with creating the awareness you need so that you are in charge, not your thinking patterns.
The husband, being a busy guy, hasn’t quite worked his way through them yet. He’s enjoying the read, though. And I’ve got a few choice quotes in my back pocket that I can pull out
to use against him to help us look at things a little differently next time we have an…ummm…“discussion”.
