17 Wayne Dyer quotes that can change your life


Wayne Dyer, the internationally renowned self-development and spiritual growth author and speaker, passed away Aug. 30.

I have read many of his books, seen his presentations, watched him on interviews, and listened to his radio shows. He always offered such insightful wisdom in easy-to-implement terms.

One of the greatest lessons I learned from Dyer was something he wrote in his first book, Your Erroneous Zones. He said that if you always say you’re not good at something, then you actually won’t be good at it. By repeating that type of statement, Dyer said you’re essentially predicting that you will never improve or change that particular skill.

That immediately resonated with me, particularly as I used to always say that I wasn’t good at math.

Instead, Dyer suggested that you shift your thought just slightly to say something like “I haven’t always been great at math, but I’m improving now.” Or you could say “Math wasn’t always my forte, but I’m getting better.” Or simply, “I’m working on my math skills.”

I’ve used that approach in many different areas of my life, from learning how to do new things to overcoming anxiety to launching a new business to seeing myself as a limitless Soul.

Because Wayne Dyer has impacted my own life so positively with his spiritual teachings, I wanted to honor his life, even if in just one small way. So I pulled together several of my favorite quotes that he has either said or written through the years.

I hope you gain clarity and a deeper connection with your own Soul by reading this quotes. Enjoy!
