Learnings from Dr. Wayne Dyer: What Lights You Up – Vol. 440, Feb. 8, 2018
Wayne Dyer, the author, lecturer, and philosopher, who died on August 29, 2015, believed in living life according to what “lights” us up. He was given tenure at St. John’s University in New York and walked away from it. Why? Because, he said that he had done the same thing over and over again, and needed to move onto something new, something that was more interesting to him. He needed to live what he felt was his life’s purpose.
He wrote his book “Erroneous Zones,” and brought it to bookstores across America to sell. It was a book that gave step-by-step advice on how to escape negative thinking and gaining control of one’s life. That was the beginning of his writing career. Here are some of the important teachings from that book:
Remember that the past doesn’t equal the present. By this Dr. Dyer meant to let go of any self-limiting labels based on your past behavior. Letting go of guilt and worry, to stop punishing yourself for something that is long over.
Anger is self-destructive. Manipulation through anger is bad for those around you.
Become excited by exploring the unknown. By challenging the convention you will come up with new ways of understanding life.
Beware that procrastination can become fear of failure, confrontation or being uncomfortable. Prioritize those things that you need to do, and get them done. It will allow you to feel much better with the action taken and accomplishing what you set out to do.
Remember that happiness is a choice.
Dr. Dyer has a couple very important questions for us to ask ourselves to get in tune with what we are here on earth to do. You have the power to choose what you do with your life. You also have the ability to love yourself by creating a positive self-image, without linking it to any achievements. The only approval that you need comes from yourself.
What lights your fire?
What makes you feel really good?
Most people accept living ordinary lives, doing ordinary things wondering why it is that they are unfulfilled. Instead, Dr. Dyer asks us to surrender to our highest place. He asked us to get in touch with what is important to us, so we can live lives that matter. So, we can be of service to the planet. So we can be and do what we are here to do.
Dr. Dyer said, “When you stay on purpose and refuse to be discouraged by fear, you align with the infinite self, in which ALL POSSIBILITIES EXIST.” He also said that all human beings have within them the same essence of consciousness, with the process of creativity and genius. Genius is the potential that lives inside every human being and can show up in many ways.
How about you opening yourself up to allowing your genius to show up, allowing you to live your life on purpose?
