Things I learned from Dr. Wayne Dyer go back years to when he first appeared on the self-help scene. His book, Your Erroneous Zones, was on my bookshelf and many more of his books followed next to it.
I read through some of my favorite Dyer quotes today and decided to dig a little deeper and be a little more transparent about what his words meant to me.
How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
Well this is a no brainer when you think about it. We all react but we can control that reaction and bring it back down to earth and stomp it into the ground. It took me a while to really understand that I can control my karma in reacting to people.
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.
This quote is such a favorite of mine because dancing my way through the beautiful life I have had this far has never been about getting to that certain place. In my travels in this life I hold dear, I have held many things that are over-the-moon dear to me. I have enjoyed every step. Please someone let Dyer know I am not ready for my next journey (yet).
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.
This is a brutally honest quote to talk about because we all do this. I am guilty of it, you are too. When I look at it here I am embarrassed to think how others judged me for judging another. This really defines who we are doesn’t it?
You’ll see it when you believe it.
This is an absolute – when I shook off my doubts about my capabilities I knew what direction my career needed to go. I have this quote where I can see it all the time.
Dyer has said so many outstanding deep reaching emotional things over the span of his lifetime. His words will resonate beyond my lifetime, beyond yours. The here and now would be a good time to read through his quotes. Try a site like brainyquotes.com and pick some that touch your heart and your brain.
Dr. Wayne Dyer you are gone way too soon but your left us great footprints to fill in our lives.
