The book starts out citing compelling science and studies, including Bruce Lipton's research proving that genes are far from destiny, and that our beliefs influence even our genes. This is truly the foundation for a "no excuses" paradigm. Wayne delves into the concept of memes, or mind viruses and explains how these are passed on to people like cold viruses.
Next, 18 typical excuses are presented (many of these solicited from his readers). It will be difficult, risky, take too long, create family drama; I don't deserve it; it's against my nature; I can't afford it (surely a popular one today!); no one will help me; it's not happened before; I'm not strong/smart enough; I'm too old/too young; the rules/laws won't let me; it's too big; I don't have the energy/time; it's in my family history; I'm afraid. I was disappointed that my favorite excuse "I'll do it later" wasn't listed, although it was addressed indirectly in various parts of the book, especially in the "commitment to overcoming the inertia" part.
The second section seven contains principles for overcoming excuses: awareness, alignment, now, contemplation (with a very powerful quote from Aristotle--"Contemplation is the highest form of activity"), willingness, passion and compassion.
The third section promotes a new way of viewing excuses, creating a paradigm shift. This includes asking yourself six questions, starting out with "Is it true?" Where did the excuse come from? What is the payoff?Read more ›
The author, Dr Wayne Dyer, put together his material in a very well-organized manner and was kind enough to remind everyone that their lame excuses won't cut it. I must confess, I have used a few of them myself, primarily to justify my laziness about not wanting to work out. However, I'm still not going to work out. I'm just not going to make excuses anymore. There. I feel better already.
By forcing yourself to increase your awareness level concerning any difficult issue you may be faced with, you'll more than likely come away accomplishing a lot of things you didn't think you could do, or didn't want to do. Again, this is basic stuff, but it's still valuable, especially for those less than enthusiastic chronic complainers who always feel the world is against them. You know the type. Everything is "a problem"...You just want to slap them. Well, now you can hand them this book, and hope they can fit it into their busy schedule.
In the final analysis, you've got to be your own boss. Give yourself frequent "reviews", and be honest with your own performance. If you're not cutting the mustard, go back and read this book again.
It's worth it, especially if you usually begin every day wondering what's going to go wrong and who's going to plot against you now. Yeah it's definitely worth it.
Great start for a beginner who hasn't been "Over-Dyered"
It's also becoming tiresome that authors from Hay House recommend each others books (a lot) inside their own book.
Infomercials inside a book.
