Six lessons the world learned from Wayne Dyer

Wayne Dyer grew up an orphan, surrounded by poverty and hunger in Detroit. His experience as an orphan developed a strong self-belief within and he never gave in to self-pity.

After spending some time in the Navy, he studied counselling and then taught at St. Johns University in New York, during which he wrote his first self-help book.

All change begins from within:

“If love and joy are what you want to give and receive, change your life by changing what’s inside.”

Self-love is very important:

“Don’t equate your self-worth with how well you do things in your life. You aren’t what you do. If you are what you do, then when you don’t, you aren’t.”

Attitude of gratitude:

“Each morning, when you open your eyes, think only three things: thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Only you are responsible for your happiness:

“You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now.”

Positive thinking is key:

“Initiate a habit of choosing thoughts and ideas that support feeling good and powerful, and that elevate you to a higher level of consciousness.”

Live life to the fullest:

“Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live each day as it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.”
