Dyer reveals how to change the self-defeating thinking patterns that have prevented you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. Even though you may know what to think, actually changing those thinking habits that have been with you since childhood might be somewhat challenging.If I changed, it would create family dramas . . . I'm too old or too young . . . I'm far too busy and tired . . . I can't afford the things I truly want . . . It would be very difficult for me to do things differently . . . and I've always been this way . . . may all seem to be true, but they're in fact just excuses. So the business of modifying habituated thinking patterns really comes down to tossing out the same tired old excuses and examining your beliefs in a new and truthful light.In this groundbreaking work, Wayne presents a compendium of conscious and subconscious crutches employed by virtually everyone, along with ways to cast them aside once and for all. You'll learn to apply specific questions to any excuse, and then proceed through the steps of a newparadigm. The old, habituated ways of thinking will melt away as you experience the absurdity of hanging on to them.You'll ultimately realize that there are no excuses worth defending, ever, even if they've always been part of your life--and the joy of releasing them will resonate throughout your very being. When you eliminate the need to explain your shortcomings or failures, you'll awaken to the life of your dreams. Excuses . . . Begone!Read Less

I watched Wayne Dyer on TV about this and decided I wanted to stop the procrastination I had absolutely mastered. His suggestions in this book made sense to me and I do put them into practice when I find myself putting something off. I do think the author could have made his point in less words, but it still was a helpful read.Wayne Dyer is one of my favorites anyhow.

Changed my life!
I first listened to the CDs, then read the book. I was hesitant because I never cared for Wayne Dyer. But I was serious about changing my life--and I did it with his direction. Whenever I begin to falter, I listen or read again and it brings me back to my focus.

This book was horrible
Horrible book. How does this guy make any money? This book was poorly written and the ideas presented in the book could have been summed up in one page, not an entire book. Dr. Wayne, go home and quit writing.
