Wayne Dyer (1940 – 2015), was a self-help guru and an inspirational speaker who mainly taught about the Tao (Chinese Philosophical Tradition).Wayne Dyer wrote many mind-opening books that have inspired millions of people all over the world including billionaire Sara Blakely (Net worth – 1.03 billion dollars), who revealed that Wayne Dyer’s tapes were her primary source of inspiration.
I have also read most of Wayne Dyer’s books but I was mostly inspired by the book: Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life. From the book, I learned several factors that have enabled me to improve the quality of my life.
In this article, I will provide you with the five most crucial lessons I have learned from the book.
- What Cannot Be Cured Must Be Endured
Wayne Dyer advises that we must never concentrate on what might have happened. Instead, we must accept whatever happens and work hard on attracting what we want.
He writes that many people complain when things don’t go their way without knowing that complaining wastes the time and energy they could have used to make their lives better.
- Your Life Changes Only When You Change
Wayne Dyer writes that things cannot change if you don’t change. For example, you cannot become rich if you continue being lazy, because for you to make big money, you must dump your lazy lifestyle and embrace a hardworking way of life.
In other words, if you change nothing, nothing will change.
Don’t Put Half of the Effort Unless You are Okay With Half of the Results
- If You Have A Problem, Focus on the Solution.
Wayne Dyer believes that the more you focus on your problems the bigger they become. Also, he writes that focusing on the possible effects of your problems won’t make them go away. For a problem to quickly go away, you must focus on finding solutions.
- Always Try to Identify the Reasons Why You Are Not Achieving Your Goals
Wayne Dyer teaches that for us to quickly move forward, we must check what is limiting us from achieving our expectations. For instance, if we are not where we want to be, we must check if we are working hard enough, or if the people we associate with are preventing us from making progress.
Identifying the limiting factors will enable us to eliminate them hence making us achieve our desires within a short period.
- Don’t Dwell on Negative Emotions if You Fail.
Wayne Dyer advises us to never succumb to negative emotions in case our projects fail. Instead, we must try to think of a different method that can enable us to avoid failure in the future.
Succumbing to negative emotions is dangerous to our progress because it prevents us from being optimistic and trying out new things.
