Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone

Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone

Wayne Dyer’s new book: Excuses Begone gives readers 18 affirmations to antidote 18 of the most common excuses and gives a 6 part exercise to do on the excuses that you use.

Here are some snippets:

Don’t underestimate your ability to change.

Fulfill your passion and your purpose by eliminating all excuses.  Simply accept no excuses from yourself.

You can change your DNA by changing your perception.

Passion within you is god speaking.

The effectiveness of The Placebo Effect is due to the power of belief and due to thoughts becoming things.

Never let money keep you from living your dharma or your purpose.

Don’t let rules stop you.  Practice civil disobedience.

“With god, all things are possible”- this means EVERYTHING; nothing is excluded!

All excuses are the result of misalignment.

Can you imagine God/Source saying “I’m too tired” or “I don’t have enough time”?

If your thoughts match Source/God, you have the same power as Source, you set into motion the creative forces in the Universe, and you attract Divine Mind.

Make your #1 relationship your relationship with the divine.

Allow the divine to work it’s magic.

Suspend all blame, take full responsibility, surrender to what’s bigger than you, be willing to transform, shed EVERYTHING you’ve been unwilling to do.

It’s never too late.  many people have created highly successful careers and businesses after midlife.

Carl Jung said: “Our greatest problems are not to be solved but to be outgrown”.

See the hidden blessings in the challenges you have.

Feelings are your manifesters!

What you believe about money, income, debt, abundance, your potential,….. is RIGHT.

What you believe about money, income, debt, abundance, your potential,….. is RIGHT.

There’s an old adage that says, “Whether you believe you can or you believe you can’t, you’re right.” We convince ourselves of our futures before we take the actions that make them real. This is not news to the golfer who visualizes the ball dropping into the cup before the swing, or the artist who sees the completed painting before lifting a brush.

This is also the underlying feature of everything from Positive Psychology to “The Secret,” and the Law of Attraction, and it works on us every day. When we convince ourselves that everything is happening to us, and we’re nothing but a thistle-seed on the breeze of life, that becomes our experience. Our experience and our belief becomes reinforced as we prepare ourselves for that future, expect that future, and yes, take precisely the action steps that will lead to that future.

If everyone says “we’re in a recession,” we will make it so. If we constantly say the economy is bad, we will make it so. I’m not saying that we should ignore reality by any means, but that we look beyond the hand that we’re dealt, to the game we’re in. Playing a lousy hand well will take you further than playing a great hand badly. If we decide to make reality work, we can make reality work.

It is very difficult to observe the world around us, interpret from a defeatist position, and then promote a successful, winning perspective. The change has to start at the very beginning of this process. If we want to improve our situations, we need to do this from a position where we have power and control. To say “I can’t do xyz because the economy is bad,” is a total surrender to powerlessness. Turning this around starts with language shifts completely within our power.


First, the economy isn’t “bad.” The economy is going through corrections, adjustments, upheaval, or any of the other thousand descriptions that don’t include a value judgment definition.
Einstein said it is necessary to apply different thinking to solve the problems than the thinking that created the situation. Now you think, “how am I going to get past this?” We move from victim to problem solver just by shifting our internal dialogue. First we catch ourselves, then we interrupt the pattern, then we replace the victim language with the problem solver language. Difficult at first, but easier and easier with practice until you no longer even have to think about it. Success, now, is going to be about better problem solving, more creativity, more innovation.

Internal Spring Cleaning to transform your beliefs and habits

Internal Spring Cleaning to transform your beliefs and habits

Oh, how I love spring! I love the freshness, the growth in nature, the renewal after a long winter, a fresh slate, a new start,….. This weekend I worked a lot on my landscape: first pulling weeds that had grown between the cobblestones and then re-setting cobblestones and filling the cracks so weeds will not be able to grow there again. For me, this is actually much much more than just landscaping, it’s the result of internal changes that involved eliminating and replacing certain long held beliefs about myself and my life. This, in turn, resulted in taking action that supports my desire to have a certain degree of order and aesthetics in my environment because that feeds my soul and that order and beauty feels like a needed support for me to go out in the world and help others.

In the book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey says “In developing our own self-awareness many of us discover ineffective scripts, deeply embedded habits that are totally unworthy of us, totally incongruent with the things we really value in life. We are response-able to use our imagination and creativity to write new ones that are more effective, more congruent with our deepest values and with the correct principles that gives our values meaning.”

So, take a slow deep breath, maybe a few of them, and contemplate for a moment what you really value and how your actions may be incongruent with or not in support of these values. What are 3 simple changes you can begin right now to address this? Happy Weeding. When your life is weed-free, it makes space for anything to happen, including what you desire, including what you’re here to do. Start now. Pull some weeds and plant some seeds. Let me know what sprouts. Need some help identifying those old beliefs or replacing them? Contact me, I’d love to help you.

Freedom from Limiting Beliefs

Freedom from Limiting Beliefs

Here’s the process in a nutshell:

Step 1 Identify the limiting beliefs that are holding
you back.
Step 2 Create new empowering replacement beliefs.
Step 3 Remove the limiting belief file from your
subconscious mind.
Step 4 Release the ’emotional glue’ that surrounds and
compounds your limiting belief.
Step 5 Install your new positive belief in your
subconscious mind.
Step 6 Strengthen your new beliefs with simple exercises.

Make sure the ones you hold on to are aligned to your
visions and dreams and the magnificent truth of who
you are.


It’s not rocket science, but it is difficult to do alone or without great tools. My work with clients draws on several modalities and allows them to clear old beliefs at the subconscious level for real and lasting change and creates new neural pathways for the new beliefs and the behaviors that go along with them. It’s very liberating and exhilarating. Some may think this odd, but it’s my idea of a great time. After decades of working on myself, I decided to work on others as well. It’s equally fun and exhilarating! Accelerated change is thrilling. If you feel the same, leave a comment or call me to schedule a session.

Replace old patterns of self-defeating behavior with new patterns

Open the gate of change and growth.

“You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind” – Dale Carnegie

You are not your habits. You can replace old patterns of self-defeating behavior with new patterns, new habits of effectiveness, happiness, and trust-based relationships. I encourage you to open the gate of change and growth. – Stephen Covey

Habits and patterns can be replaced and new habits and patterns can be installed and supported with the combination of coaching, NLP, and Ericksonian Hypnosis.  I facilitate this for my clients.

Our Relationship with Money

Why explore our relationship with money? To find your own path to a new relationship with it; a journey of truth, self-discovery, and enlightenment where you examine your belief system about money and build a bridge between the past and the present so that you can master your future. What are you seeking? What do you wish were different? Let these questions spark you.

Money is a tool meant to transform your life in more meaningful ways. As a tool, it will facilitate the path of true fulfillment that comes from living your life intentionally and with purpose. The source of money, and of all things, exists within each of us. You hold the keys to manifesting the reality you choose- including money. You can harness this power along with creativity and knowledge and live your best life, re-invent yourself and your destiny. In ancient Greece, money gave rise to intellectual, artistic, and spiritual growth and discovery. The same is possible today. The ability to change and manifest your reality moves in direct relationship with your level of consciousness. If you desire your relationship with money to change, you need to be willing to look at your present beliefs and how you acquired them. As your awareness grows, you’ll realize your own power to manifest whatever you desire.

Money possesses an energy and life of its own. It contains a duality similar to that found in our own nature. It is both spiritual and material, creative and destructive, loving and cruel. It can help us fulfill our greatest dreams or cause us to be defeated by our worst nightmares. There are two sides to every coin or bill. One side represents our individual and collective ability to master the material world. The other side represents our ability to master the spiritual dimension or inner world. It is this inner resource that we want to tap.

We cannot control money, but by understanding it, we can obtain what we need. Money’s value changes not only in relation to the economy but in relation to our consciousness. Money remains a subject that is neither taught nor widely understood. Wealth doesn’t make personal or psychological problems disappear; it often magnifies them. Having all the freedom and options in the world can be a terrible burden to even the most well-adjusted person, and this is even more true if you do not understand your relationship with money. Most people who win the lottery or receive some other large windfall experience extreme stress over the money and no longer have much if any of it left after 5 years.

Only one thing is real: your connection to Spirit, however you define it, and your faith in Spirit. There is no other security. Money, as much as we wish for it to, does not provide security and we can’t control it. Without our connection to Spirit, we will never feel that we are loved enough, that we have enough, that we are enough. Without faith in Spirit, we won’t know true fulfillment, regardless of how much money we have or what we try to fill our lives with. Wealth without consciousness is another state of poverty. The real journey is not about money; it’s about YOU, who you really are, what your path and purpose are, and how to fulfill that purpose and live a life of ease, delight, flow, success, and abundance in accordance with your own definitions and values.
