Dr. Wayne Dyer – the Real Deal?

Dr. Wayne Dyer – the Real Deal?

Some people are extraordinary teachers of English, History, Math or a litany of other subjects. Dr.  Wayne Dyer, otherwise known as “the father of motivation”, is what I call, an extraordinary teacher of LIFE.

In 1976, he wrote a book called Your Erroneous Zones which is one of  the top bestselling books of all time.  The book spent 64 weeks on the NY Times Bestseller list and sold over 35 million copies. This was certainly a wonderful way to start off a career as a motivational writer.  Wayne has written more books than I can even begin to count since 1976, and many of them landing once again on the NY Times Bestseller list.  Some titles include, The Power of Intention, Change Your Thoughts-Change Your Life, 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Happiness and the list goes on.

But more than being a prolific writer, Wayne is a teacher, a teacher of life and spirituality. He is well known as the PBS guru, helping Pubic Television in the United States raise money by presenting inspiring and motivating lectures. Experiencing Wayne in person, however, is truly a life-changing experience.

I believe that there are  certain people in our world that possess an ability to cut through our overly thinking analytical minds and touch our spirits with truth.  Wayne is one of these people.  I have seen him stand up in front of over 2,000 people for over 3 hours without one person moving a muscle or fidgeting. Wayne invokes a stillness when he speaks. He comes from love and it is palpable. He studies and meditates long and hard and then shares it with the world.  I deeply admire Wayne for his constant desire to learn and grow.  He is an avid reader and I am always in awe of how he consistently gives credit to the writer of a book or philosophy that he has recently embraced.

One of the biggest lessons I have learned from Wayne  is how my life is profoundly changed by simply changing my thoughts. I know this sounds simple, but putting this little philosophy into action is life altering.  Wayne’s work has helped millions of people how to live a life filled with more love, peace, joy, compassion and to find God within themselves.  He inspires people to understand that we are all worthy of whatever our heart desires, to choose your own greatness,  how to live as a limitless being, how to stop making excuses that hold your life back and so much more.

Part of what I think is so remarkable about Wayne, was how he came into the world. He spent the first 10 years of his life in an orphanage.  There were no parents to nurture him, to support him or even feed him or hold him when he cried.  Yet in spite of a difficult beginning, he became determined to break the family pattern and create a life on his terms.  And now, even in the face of his recent diagnosis of leukemia, Wayne does not waiver from his life’s passion and intention.

Here are some of my favorite Wayne’isms:
Don’t die with your music inside you.
Nurture your intentions.
Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it.
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there’s only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.

I have had the honor to spend time with Wayne Dyer.  He has been one of the keynote presenters at our annual Celebrate Your Life conference in Arizona for the past 9 years. We have over 20 inspiring bestselling authors at this event and people travel from all over the world to see them in person and attend four life changing days with them. It is a breathtaking experience.

I was extremely humbled when during our last conference Wayne sat down and started to share how he felt about being with us at the Celebrate Your Life conference.  Thank God someone had a camera! Click here to see the video with Wayne Dyer.

If you are ready to do something completely radical and shake up your world in the most loving and fabulous way, then find a way to join us at this year’s Celebrate Your Life conference in Arizona in November with Wayne Dyer and many more speakers.   It will be one of the most marvelous gifts you will ever give to yourself.  Click here to learn more about Celebrate Your Life.

And by the way, absolutely YES, Wayne Dyer is definitely the real deal!!

So cool. I love adding to my list of must reads. Hassie, thanks for you comment. I'm even more inspired to check it out.

I am presently enjoying the Kabbala (Jewish style). I'm getting into the section where it communicates, to those who have ears to hear, how it is our thoughts that create the world in which we dwell.

I find it particularly important that activists be aware of this. While we fight the evil, let's put our attention, our visualizations, and thus our faith, on the results we want to get. That which we are fighting is very temporary. We are seeing to that. lol

Let's visualize with all five senses and EMOTION! that which we want to manifest. Emotion is the energy motion which brings about what we envision with all five senses.

If we allow ourselves to be netted into the emotions of anger, despair, fear, then what will our
E motion .. energy motion....bring to be?

I think Wayne is one of the wisest people on the earth today, thanks to his philosophy of taking the whole responsibility for his life and its outcomes and for being so focussed on positive, win-win outcomes.I'm sure when he has the leukaemia licked he'll have still more good material to pass on to his readers.

interesting article, best wishes and good luck to Mr. Dyer in his battle with leukemia.
For all his ardent supporters they would do more for him now by contributing to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society then purchasing another of his books right now.

It is always worth you time to spend time with this man - he has so much of value to say and really gets you thinking. Lots of great examples from his own life, as well.

As a child of the 70's I grew up in a family that jokingly referenced Dr. Dyer's positive energy any time we needed to find a parking space. I still do it today though it can be difficult to explain to whatever friend is in the car with me but it does appear to work.

I have read many of his books and have always recommended them to friends and family.
