Quotes by Wayne W. Dyer

Dr. Wayne Dyer is know by millions as a great self-help guru and positive thinker. Here are some of his great quotes:

Heaven on earth is a choice you must make, not a place you must find.

The only limits you have are the limits you believe.

The secret to living the life of your dreams is to start living the life of your dreams, at once, to any degree that you possibly can.

You have a very powerful mind that can make anything happen as long as you keep yourself centered.

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.

It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.

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.

Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul.

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.

Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with.

Conflict cannot survive without your participation.

The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about.

Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.

Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.

Deficiency motivation doesn't work. It will lead to a life-long pursuit of try to fix me. Learn to appreciate what you have and where and who you are.

Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.

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.

Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it.

Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you.

Everything in the universe has a purpose. Indeed, the invisible intelligence that flows through everything in a purposeful fashion is also flowing through you.

It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time. Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the power to choose either.

Judgements prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.

Maxim for life: You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.

What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.

You'll see it when you believe it.

When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out - because that's what's inside. When you are squeezed, what comes out is what is inside.

Live one day at a time emphasizing ethics rather than rules.

Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing.

Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.

The fact that you are willing to say, "I do not understand, and it is fine," is the greatest understanding you could exhibit.

The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.

You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life'.

It's never crowded along the extra mile.

Simply put, you believe that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. You make yourself unhappy.

Real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others.

Self-worth comes from one thing - thinking that you are worthy.

Everything is perfect in the universe - even your desire to improve it.

We are Divine enough to ask and we are important enough to receive.

Only the insecure strive for security.

You are doomed to make choices. This is life's greatest paradox.

Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made.

There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.

You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.

You are important enough to ask and you are blessed enough to receive back.

The last suit that you wear, you don't need any pockets.
