Dr. Wayne Dyer was one of my mentors from afar for many years. His personal story and his evolution from simply psychology to an all-encompassing spiritual view of the human condition mirrored my own.
Here are 10 of my favorite Dyer quotes. You can find the complete list of his quotes on the TAS website.
Stay inspired, my friends!
“When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer was a world famous motivation expert and I consider him a mentor to me from afar. I was fortunate enough to see him speak live at Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City in 1997.
His writings and teachings played a huge role in the turnaround I experienced in my life. Millions more agreed. He sold millions of books and spoke to sold out venues around the world. Later he became a highly successful mainstay of PBS fundraising drives.
Wayne had a unique way of taking deep spiritual and psychological principles and making them simple and easy to apply to our lives.
The following clip was taken from one of his numerous appearances on PBS over the years. He is discussing how we look for solutions to our internal situations in the outside world.
Power hack: Anais Nin offered a related thought. “We see the world not as it is, but as we are.”
You have, at any moment, the power to change the way you look at anything. There may be a voice in you that’s telling you, “I could never change the way I look at this or that.” At some point in time, you did choose how to look at that. You had no power then than you have now. You can, if you choose, change the way you see things. By doing so, the things you will see change.
Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

One of my favorite moments in Spring is the first time I see and hear a cardinal sing. I love red and so I find cardinals to be stunning birds. The best thing, though, is their amazing song. I can’t get enough of it. I’d love to hear your song too!
The late Wayne Dyer often encouraged his listeners with this aphorism. I never heard Wayne say it, but I’ve always believed he was referring back to another proverb of indistinct origin. “A bird doesn’t sing because it has the answer, it sings because it has a song.
Did you know you have a song inside of you? I believe we all do. You may call it your bliss, your mission, your path. It’s that thing that we cannot imagine dying without having expressed, experienced, and shared. Yet, many of you reading this, have not blessed the world with your song.
“Well,” you might think, “No one really cares about my song. It won’t change the world or my situation.” Are you sure? Who among us knows how a word, a gesture, a thought from you might change everything?
Whether you “singing” your song would shift the world or just shift a moment, read the quote again. The reason for singing your song is not because your song is the answer, though it might be. The reason for singing your song is because you have a song and it’s what you’re here to do. You won’t feel complete until you pipe up. So, pipe up!
It doesn’t have to be the most beautiful song or the most profound. It only needs to be the contribution you came here to make.
No pressure, but it’s time to start singing!
Have a fantastic and song-filled day!
