I had another blog post planned for today but I’m so stuck on the passing of Wayne Dyer that I can’t publish. I think this is what musicians feel like when they lose a Master. For us in the self-development field, Wayne Dyer was a great rock star, a guru, a master. In his meditations and The Shift, his calm and reassuring voice soothed me to sleep many a night.
As a small tribute to an amazingly inspirational man that has had a big influence on my personal growth and now on what I often pass on to others in my coaching, I’d like to mention just a few of my favorite Wayne Dyer quotes.
“Circumstances do no make the man, they reveal him.”
– A great one for hard times and remaining strong. Acting out or blaming others is cowardly and shows no respect for yourself and what you’re capable of.
“You’re not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.”
– Change is always possible. No one except you can define your circumstances. Even for those under attack or enslaved, there is power in how you decide to view the moment.
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
– I think this one is my favorite and maybe one of his most famous quotes. It’s about perspective as well as the law of attraction and bringing positive change into your reality.
“A mind at peace and centered and not focused on harming others is stronger than any physical force in the universe.”
These are just my top 5 but there are so many others and a great big amazingly influential body of work from Wayne Dyer. If you’ve never read or watched anything by him I recommend starting with The Shift – a full-length feature that is easily found on YouTube. Here’s just one link. THE SHIFT
Though I’m sad we’ll have no more work from him, he has left us with such a legacy and a lot to live up to.
Rest in Eternal Peace.
