Publisher Comments:

Within the pages of this transformational book, Dr. Wayne W. 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 new paradigm. 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!

This book is wonderful! It changed how I look at the decisions I make in my life and how to go about making more positive ones. It also helped me to understand how my past shapes my now and what I can do to get rid of those "tapes" that run in my head. I recommend this book to everyone!

Excuses Begone gets to our resistance to move forward in life. There are always reasons, but there is never an excuse. I liked his description of memes as it opens up new ways of thinking.

I am commenting on the title of the book as was stated on a previous page. I think the title "Excuses Begone" is outstanding because in order for anyone to succeed, he or she must stop making excuses. I tell my students, "You can make progress or you can make excuses; you can't make both."

I try to "practice what I preach," although admittedly, I do struggle with my own statement.
But I am aware of this "conflict."

I look forward to reading Dr. Dyer's book.
