When I find quotes that make me reflect, change my thinking and nod my head as I read them….I research that person to the fullest extent. I become curious.
I have always heard of Wayne Dyer and in the past I’ve come across a lot of his quotes, but I’ve never looked into to him as a person.
Did you know he passed away 29th August 2015 from a heart attack?
He was born in Detroit, Michigan then lived in Hawaii. He was an American philosopher, self help author and motivational speaker. He has written so many books!
He spoke of Abraham Maslow who I already respect through studying counselling he also refers to Peter Deunov who I am yet to research.
There are so many good quotes that he left behind. One in particular resonated with me.
“What people think about you is none of your business”
I’ve had people in the past say to me “Do you know what (person) said about you?” and I would ask to be told…Then deal with the heart breaking negativity of the opinion that person had of me. Did I really need to know?
Remember that quote? “Judging a person does not define who they are…. it defines who you are”
I didn’t understand the quote many years ago when I heard it for the first time, but now I get it.
What someone thinks of me is their opinion. They are entitled to that opinion, but that is their truth… not mine. They don’t know me, they don’t walk my path, they don’t know why I do what I do or say what I say. That’s ok, they don’t need to.
What I think of me is all that matters. Because who I believe I am is who I am.
Ask me now if I wanted to know an opinion someone has of me, you would get a different answer.
Another great Wayne Dyer quote that I love is “Change the way you see things and the things you see will change” I really love this quote.
More fantastic quotes:
” I cannot always control what goes on outside, but I can always control what goes on inside”
“The only limits you have are the limits you believe”
“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with”
“Keep reminding yourself: I get what I think about, whether I wan it or not”
“You do not attract what you want, you attract what you are”
“Practice being the kind of person you wish to attract”
“When you become certain that nothing is impossible for you, you’ll attain everything you desire”
I could go on and on with his fantastic quotes.
I’ve listened to some podcasts he had with people calling up and speaking to him….and the next step will be an audio book.
I hope you liked meeting Wayne if you haven’t already met him.
Until next time, Make it a great day.
