Below are 15 life changing lessons Wayne taught the world. We hope you enjoy and learn from them.
1. Cooperation is healthier than competition
Work on improving your own person and be so busy with doing so that you don’t have time to compare and compete with others. We are all in this together and this sense of separation will only weaken us all creating more pain and suffering.
If you’re always in a hurry, always trying to get ahead of the other guy, or someone else’s performance is what motivates you, then that person is in control of you. ~ Wayne Dyer
When you love somebody you love them for what they are not for what you want them to be, without imposing your will and without constantly trying to change them.
Allow yourself to expand your mind a little more day by day, give up labels and you will be happier. If you constantly say NO to “strange” ideas, things, events, people, how can you expect to progress through life? Try new things, if it makes your life better stick to it and if it doesn’t let it go, It’s that simple.
When you affirm thing like, You make me mad, this situation is upsetting me, I can’t believe you are treating me this way, etc., you start playing the victim game. Take responsibility for your own thoughts, your own feelings and actions and by doing so you will no longer give your power away to forces outside yourself. When something negative will come your way, you will pause and instead of reacting you will RESPOND, to everything and everyone. You will no longer be a victim but rather a person who is aware of his/her inner strength and power.
If you are comfortable in your own skin and if you really love your own person, you will not be afraid to spend some time alone. You will enjoy the time you spend alone as much as you do when you are surrounded by the people you love dearly.
If you trust and listen to your own heart and intuition, you will always know where to go and what to do with your life. No matter how many doors will close on your face, you will not give up and you will allow rejection to make you stronger and better but not bitter.
If you constantly seek outside yourself for approval and validation, you will never be happy. We are all different and we all perceive things in different ways but your reputation is not something you can really control. Your reputation is not really in your hands, so stop trying to please everyone aroundyou and start pleasing your own SELF. You are the person who matters the most and if you yourself are not happy with who you are, chances are that others will be happy with YOU either!
People often think if they focus long enough on something they want, with the Law of Attraction and everything they will get whatever they want in life, but that’s not how things work. If you purify your mind and your hearth, you will attract many beautiful things in your life, and abundance will not be something you will have to chase because it will chase you. On the other hand, if your mind and heart is full of negativity, negativity in all forms will show up in your life.
There are no limits to what you can achieve, only those you choose to impose on yourself.
Focus on the BAD and that’s all you will see and attract into your life; focus on the GOOD and that’s all you will seeand attract into your life.
Believe it or not, there is an invisible force who created the whole world, the whole Universe and this force becomes available to us the moment we stop trying to do it all by ourselves, the moment we decide to allow events to take their natural course and just go with the FLOW.
In this moment you have it all, right NOW and right here, there is nothing lacking. Take time to be quiet at least 5 minutes per day and in time you will discover that you do have access to HAPPINESS, PEACE, ABUNDANCE and all that is good at all times.
Personal growth doesn’t end when you finish school. The moment you’ve stopped growing you can say that you’ve stopped living.
There is a great power in the Universe, the Source of it all, and this power makes itself available to you the moment you align with who you really aredeep down inside, creating miracles for you and those you love.
This is such a powerful truth that only a few of us get to live and discover. When you get your life on purpose, when you focus on giving the best of you to the world, abundance will flow freely into your life and you will discover happiness you never thought could be yours.
