1. You can't give away what you don't have
Dyer, a Detroit native, worked as a high school guidance counselor there and as a professor of counselor education at St. John's University in New York City.
2. Don't identify yourself with what you accomplish
A literary agent persuaded Dyer to document his theories in his first book, called Your Erroneous Zones (1976).
3. As you think, so shall you be
After Your Erroneous Zones dozens more books followed, many of them also best-sellers.
4. Be open-minded
The success of these books eventually led to national television talk show appearances including The Merv Griffin Show, The Tonight Show, and The Phil Donahue Show.
5. Change the way you look at things
The Pixar animated short film, Day & Night, is based on one of Wayne Dyer's lectures, and Dyer is the voice in the film.
6. No one likes being told what to do
He proceeded to build on his success with lecture tours, a series of audiotapes, and regular publication of new books. His message resonated with many in the New Thought Movement and beyond.
7. There are no justified resentments
He often recounted anecdotes from his family life and repeatedly used his own life experience as an example.
8. Stop finding excuses
Dyer criticized societal focus on guilt, which he saw as an unhealthy immobilization in the present due to actions taken in the past.
9. Walk down another street
Dyer was influenced by Abraham Maslow's concept of self-actualization and by the teachings of Swami Muktananda, whom he considered to be his master.
10. Don't die with your music still in you
He also credited Saint Francis of Assisi, the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, and their teachings as being foundational influences in his work.
Amazing video. Kindly do Dr Wayne Dyer who recently passed away. I bet he can be of great inspiration. He was very influential to many of us. Once again thanks.
