Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He is the author of more than 30 books, has created numerous audio programs and videos, and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. Wayne holds a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University and was an associate professor at St. John’s University in New York.

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 knowwhat 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!

    My friend Sue was the person who introduced me to Wayne Dyer's books. This was the first book I had encountered. After hearing her talk about the book, I just had to get it for myself! It is one book that I feel every household should have. If you allow it, this book will change your life. Highly, highly recommended!!!!!

    Book has some good info, as with most books. Was not written real well. Language is a bit boring. I would stay away from this book. Save yourself some time. This author only has one good book, look it up. He is a one hit wonder and has tried to stem the same ideas from his one top selling book. This is not it.

    This is a great read--I have both the book and book-on-CD. The information Dr. Wayne Dyer shares should be taught in grade schools. Excuses Begone! is worth its weight in gold.

    This is a great motivational book...the best I have read in a long time. It helped me to realize that I could have been in a better place academically and emotionally in my life had it not been for my procrastination and lame excuses. BUT, all that is about to change thanks to "Excuses Begone." Thanks, Dr. Dyer!
