“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

It saddens me to say good-bye to one of my hero’s.  Even though I know he would not trade where he is now for anything, he was looking forward to his next chapter, the world has lost a powerful teacher, writer and poet and a moment to remember his wisdom and humor seems in order.

“I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I’m not.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

When I created my “mind movie” of my dreams and vision of my life, meeting Dr. Wayne Dyer was a big part of my dream.  I realize that I will not have that chance in this life again.

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

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

I had planned on going to the Writer’s Conference in Maui this year to get a chance to learn from him face to face but I did not make every effort and step out of my comfort zone to do whatever it took to make it happen.

“If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t you will see obstacles.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

I realize now how important it is to go for you dreams because you don’t know if you will get tomorrow.

I have been writing a lot lately about living your purpose and going for it.  It really hit home when I realized that I missed my chance to meet Dr. Wayne Dyer and will never get it again.

“Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

One of the things that I loved most about Dr. Wayne Dyer is his humor and honesty.

“You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

I was really in a bad place after a series of operations and was just tired of being sick and in pain.  One of the things that really pulled me out of my depression was listening to his Essence of Being in Balance recording by, Dr. Wayne Dyer.

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

It reminded me, as he always did, that I am a piece of the Divine and that I can change my life by changing my thinking and connecting with the Divine.  He always reminded me that it was my choice.  I choose love.

“Practice being the kind of person you wish to attract.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

So many times when I get stuck I listen to him and I remember that the answer is within me and I reconnect with the Source of power.  He always helps me to plug into the Divine.

“When you’re at peace with yourself and love your self, it is virtually impossible to do things to yourself that are destructive.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Nothing I could say could be an adequate tribute to the man that I truly love from the bottom of my heart and soul, Dr. Wayne Dyer, but I felt like I could not let another day pass without saying, “Thank You!”

“Upon awakening, let the words Thank You flow from your lips, for this will remind you to begin your day with gratitude and compassion.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

In the movie, The Shift, Dr. Wayne Dyer got up before dawn and put his feet on the ground and said, “Thank You”.  He often spoke about this, that the first thing in the morning it was important to say, “Thank You”.  I even created a wall of inspiration that I face when I wake up with the words, Thank You, in big letters to remind me to be grateful for another day.  I learned that from him.

“You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

I always teach that love is the only real power to change the world and Dr. Wayne Dyer was love.  His teachings called people to live lives of love and peace.  His message will live on and continue to create the shift he imagined.

“Love is co-operation rather than competition.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Dr. Wayne Dyer also often spoke of our power to choose.  I find as I share that with people there is always someone who says they can’t choose, and decide to stay a victim.  I was listening to him today and he talked about the un-reflecting masses.  When we live unaware of our power we become victims but we always have the power to change.

“The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.”

“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.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

“Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

let go of ego

“Conflict cannot survive without your participation.”

~Dr. Wayne Dyer

Dr. Wayne Dyer always served and gave from his heart and he lived his teachings.

“It’s never crowded along the extra mile.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

So as my tribute to his magnificence I share some of his many quotes.  I could not fit all his brilliance on one page, but I thank him for changing my life and for teaching me so many wonderful things.  I will continue to be a loyal student of his teachings and someday we will meet and I can thank him in person.

My Challenge: Life is short you don’t know how long you have.  Don’t put off your dreams do what it takes.  Anything is possible if a man who spent most of his youth in foster care and came from nothing could create such abundance than none of us have an excuse not to live powerful purpose filled lives.  Make yours count.  Live your dreams and go for it.

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
