I was devastated to read on her daughter’s page yesterday, that my true inspiration, Dr. Wayne Dyer has passed away at the age of 75. I believe he was one of the most influential motivators of the world. He has helped so many people to live better lives and understand how our minds and ego works. He used the term “Edge God Out – EGO”, which means when you are in the state of ego, you close God out. He inspired millions to take control and live our lives happily, in accordance with our inner calling and our heart’s true desire.
Here’s our top 5 Wayne Dyer quotes for inspiration:
1) “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
If you change your attitude and thinking, your life will change as well. There is no outside, there is only inside. Whatever is holding you back or telling you that you can’t be happy, it is only in the way you think. You need to be mindful of your thoughts, attitude and actions so you can look at things as they truly are, not the way you project them to be.
2) “You don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are.”
Small justification to the “Secret”, but a very important point. It’s great to state what you desire, make a list or a vision board, it will help, it has helped me. But you know what will guarantee success, the realisation of your dreams? If you are what you want to become. Act, speak, think as you are it already.
3) “Be miserable or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”
Your destiny is in your hands. Yes, you have a karma, but it’s your choice to be miserable or happy. Remember it’s only how you perceive things. If you want to stay happy you have to keep motivating yourself. Every day of your life. It’s like taking a shower, you do it once or twice a day. Make a choice!
4) “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.”
I love how this quote shows the flow of life. It’s really like dancing. Sometimes you do not need a concrete goal, just enjoy the ride. Don’t limit yourself by stating exactly what you want and how you want it. Keep it open and enjoy the Now. Be mindful and learn.
5) “How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours.”
We have this sickness of longing for the acceptance and the love of everyone around us. Our colleagues, family, partner, friends and even of strangers. And then if they say something bad to us our whole day can be ruined. Remember other people’s opinion has nothing to do with you. It’s their business. You only need to deal with yourself and your own thoughts.
