12 Life Changing Lessons Everyone Can Learn From Wayne Dyer

One of the world’s most well known and influential motivational speakers, Dr. Wayne Dyer, passed away last night (August 29th, 2015). He touched the lives of thousands of people all over the world through his wise words and amazing teachings. He helped many people awaken to the reality of some of the world’s lies. He wrote numerous books on spirituality and helping yourself grow. Dr. Dyer was not afraid of death. He saw it as another adventure. No matter how ardent of a believer in the afterlife you are, none of us are quite 100% sure how it’s all going to shake out, but I hope his optimism is being greeted warmly wherever his soul may be now.

These are 12 life lessons we can take away from Wayne Dyer.

1. Appreciate quiet moments.

“Make peace with silence, and remind yourself that it is in this space that you’ll come to remember your spirit. When you’re able to transcend an aversion to silence, you’ll also transcend many other miseries. And it is in this silence that the remembrance of God will be activated.”
“Embrace silence since meditation is the only way to truly come to know your Source. ”

2. Don’t fear your mortality.

“Choose to see death as simply removing a garment or moving from one room to another…it’s merely a transition.”

3. Don’t be afraid of rejection.

“You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.”
“We are divine enough to ask and we are important enough to receive.”
“Remind yourself that you cannot fail at being yourself.”
“I am thankful to all those who said no. It’s because of them, I did it myself.”
“There’s no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There is only a scarcity of resolve to make it happen.”

4. Your life will change if you change your mindset.

“Heaven is a state of mind, not a location.”
“No one can create negativity or stress within you. Only you can do that by virtue of how you process your world.”
“What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.”
“The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of the state of your mind.”
“You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, ‘I release the need for this in my life’.”

5. Spread kindness. You’ll never run low on it.

“When you are able to shift your inner awareness to how you can serve others, and when you make this the central focus of your life, you will then be in a position to know true miracles in your progress toward prosperity.”
“When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace”
“If you meet someone whose soul is not aligned with yours, send them love and move along.”
“Love is my gift to the world. I fill myself with love, and I send that love out into the world.”

6. Say yes!

“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.”
“I am realistic – I expect miracles.”
“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.”
“I have absolutely no limits on what I intent to create.”

7. Be thankful.

“Upon awakening, let the words Thank You flow from your lips, for this will remind you to begin your day with gratitude and compassion.”
“Each experience in your life was absolutely necessary in order to have gotten you to the next place, and the next place, up to this very moment.”

8. Set your own standards for life.

“Here is an affirmation for today: I feel passionately about my life, and this passion fills me with excitement and energy!”
“Once you believe in yourself and see your soul as divine and precious, you’ll automatically be converted to a being who can create miracles.”
“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.”
“By believing passionately in something that does not yet exist we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”

9. Find your passions and live them.

“Begin with the end in mind. Start with the end outcome and work backwards to make your dream possible.”
“Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.”
“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.”
“Don’t die with the music still in you.”

10. Put your relationship with you first.

“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.”
“Practice being the kind of person you wish to attract.”
“My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be.”

11. Be the change.

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at 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.”
“You’ll see it when you believe it.”
“Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light.”

12. You control your destiny.

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”
“When you abandon making choices, you enter the vast world of excuses.”
“Your reputation is in the hands of others. That’s what the reputation is. You can’t control that. The only thing you can control is your character.”
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”
“You must become the producer, director and actor in the unfolding story of your life.”
“A non-doer is very often a critic- that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It’s easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change.”
