I have opened this blog to give you an opportunity to share in some of the work I am currently doing around the area of personal development. Some of the material will be from e-mail blasts, some from my upcoming website, and some from my daily musings. To that end, what follows is my first letter from a series of articles based on the work Excuses Begone by Wayne Dyer:
I recently read a book that really spoke to me in a very profound way. The book, “Excuses Begone” by Dr. Wayne Dyer is truly a manual for personal change. Since reading the book, I have begun to utilize many of the concepts and have already experienced growth in a number of areas.
I see part of my purpose in life is to share with others what I have discovered thru my exploration of various teachings. To this end, I will be issuing a series of articles based on Dr. Dyer’s work. A short introduction follows below:
When you were a child I’m sure you dreamed about what your life would be like as an adult. As children, our imaginations were active, expanded and free. As adults, few of us live the life we dreamed of as a child. Deeply ask yourself the following question:
Why am I not living the life I dreamed of in my youth? Take time to reflect before you give your answer.
According to Dr. Dyer, contained in your answer are the reasons for not having the life you want and deserve. These reasons are often excuses we make to rationalize our life position. Each of us has our own “catalogue of excuses” as to why we haven’t made the changes necessary to improve our life. It is these excuses which are actually holding us back from living the life of our dreams.
My next article will give a brief overview of our “Excuses Catalog” and why each excuse is a lie that we tell ourselves and others. I encourage you to send me feedback or questions as we go through these teachings. My goal is to have each and every one of you begin to live the life you so richly deserve.
Until next time,
