It’s no secret that there are many people in the world who can touch our lives in many different ways. These same people can also touch our hearts in ways that are both meaningful and profound. This is one life lesson that people like the late Dr. Wayne Dyer have always taught, and it’s a lesson that certainly continues to hold true today.
Dr. Dyer was truly one of the most influential people who ever walked the face of the planet. He taught so many people how to love, live, and be humble, right up until the day that he sadly passed away. Many people continue to follow his advice today, and these same people continue to express their gratitude for everything that Dr. Dyer taught them.
Here are fifteen of some of the most simple life changing lessons that Dr. Dyer taught that can truly help you to change your life for the better.
Cooperation Is Much Healthier Than Competition
Take the time to improve yourself and your own life in any way that you see fit. By keeping yourself busy doing this, you will not have time to worry about competing with anyone or anything else. Constantly trying to compete with others is something that can only weaken you instead of making you stronger.
“If you’re always in a hurry, always trying to get ahead of the other guy, or someone else’s performance is what motivates you, then that person is in control of you.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Never Try To Change The People That You Love
When you truly love someone, you should love them for who they are – not for who you want them to be or even who you personally think they should be. Don’t spend time trying to make any unnecessary changes to the people in your life that you love.
“Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Ignorance Is Never Blissful
Always try to expand your mind bit by bit every single day. Never submit yourself to labels. Never refuse to explore any new ideas, events, people, etc.; otherwise, you can never truly go further in your life.
“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Never Think That You’re A Victim Of This World
You immediately begin playing the “victim game” when you start uttering statements and feelings such as “you’re making me mad,” “this situation is really upsetting me,” and “I can’t believe I’m being treated this way.” It’s important for you to be the one to take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings, and actions rather than passing them off onto someone else.
“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Don’t Be Afraid Of Solitude
Spending time alone is a great way for you to really feel comfortable in your own skin and continue to love yourself as a person. It’s just as good as spending time with a group of people that you know and love.
“You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Getting Rejected Can Make You Stronger
Regardless of how many times you are told “no” about something, you should never let rejection get you down. Instead, look at rejection as an opportunity to help make yourself much stronger and better at what you want to accomplish.
“Be grateful to all those people who told you no. It’s because of them that you managed to do it all yourself.” ~Wayne Dyer
Your Self Worth Can’t Be Verified By Other People
You can never truly be happy if you look toward outside forces for verification and approval for everything. This is because of the fact that each one of us are different people with different thoughts and feelings. Rather than worrying about trying to please everyone else, concentrate more on trying to please yourself. Your self worth is more important.
“Self-worth cannot be verified by others. You are worthy because you say it is so. If you depend on others for your value it is other-worth.” ~ Wayne Dyer
You Attract What You Truly Are Rather Than What You Want In Life
Many people always think that the Law of Attraction means that if they focus on something they want long enough, they will get whatever they want; however, that isn’t how the world works. When both your heart and mind are purified enough, you will certainly attract many different things. In terms of abundance, this is something that will come to you – meaning you will not have to chase after it.
”If you’re obsessed with defeating the other guy and winning at all costs, then you’re guaranteed to attract the vibrational equivalent of this thinking into your life- even if you do yoga and stand on your head chanting mantras everyday.” ~ Wayne Dyer
There Are Truly No Limits Of What You Can Achieve In Life
As a human being, you truly are a “no limits” type of a person. The only limits that exist are the ones that you choose to place on yourself.
“When you argue for your limitations, all you get are your limitations.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Heaven On Earth Isn’t Something You Have To Find
The concept of “Heaven on Earth” isn’t a literal place that you have to look for; rather, it’s a choice that you must make. Focusing on good or bad things will see one or the other present itself into your life the most.
“Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.”~ Wayne Dyer
Don’t Stress Over Everything
An invisible force is what really created this world and this entire universe. Whenever we stop trying to do everything on our own and stressing about everything, the world and the entire universe becomes available to us. The best route to take is to allow everything to run its natural course.
“Good morning, this is God. I will be handling all of your problems today. I will not need your help. So have a miraculous day.” ~ Wayne Dyer
You Have Already Everything You Need
Everything that you need is already within you. When you take at least five minutes every day to do nothing but sit in complete silence, you will begin to realize that you truly do have access to things such as happiness and peace whenever you want them.
“You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now.” ~ Wayne Dyer
There Really Is No End To Personal Growth
Personal growth is something that you will have with you your entire life – it’s not something that goes away at any certain point, such as when you finish school.
Individuals who use self-labels are stating, “I’m a finished product in this area, and I’m never going to be any different.” If you’re a finished product all tied up and put away, you’ve stopped growing. ~ Wayne Dyer
Always Be Realistic, Yet Expect Miracles As Well
The moment that you begin to align with who you really are deep within yourself, you will be able to truly create miracles for not just yourself, but for your loved ones as well.
“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.” ~ Wayne Dyer
Always Follow Your Heart In Order To Be Successful
This is something that many people have found to be very true in their lives. Always concentrate on giving the best of yourself to the world, and in return, not only will you allow abundance to flow into your life, but you will also experience a sense of happiness that you never before thought was possible.
“Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.” ~ Wayne Dyer
