Intention is generally viewed as a pit-bull kind of determination propelling one to succeed at all costs by never giving up on an inner picture. In this view, an attitude that combines hard work with an indefatigable drive toward excellence is the way to succeed. However, intention is viewed very differently in this book. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has researched intention as a for ...more

There were useful nuggets in here but I had to listen to 6.5 hours of how great he thought he was. Hadn't read a Dyer book in over 30 years and now I remember why.

I found this book useful, in a weird way. Using different terminology, he described in a lot of ways my general approach to life. That's the thing with a lot of these books. I think a lot of them are similarly useful, and helpful, it's just a matter of which one has the right terminology to make the connection in your mind and set it working.

I was surprised at a couple of things. First, he quoted William Blake. Second, he stated out right that organized religion weakens people. Points for that.

Too much God focused as for my beliefs. I found myself thinking “when is it going to finish this pain in the neck?” It is a boring history repeating for people who have already read a lot about positive thinking and similar stuff. One thing I have understood: in order to be happy you have to be selfish and pretend that you have the right to do that because it won’t change the world if you matter about injustices and social discrepancies. The author claims that he produces wealth when he writes a ...more
2.5 stars. This one just wasn't my favorite Wayne Dyer book. This one seemed like a repeat of his other books and didn't offer me anything really new or insightful. But something that I found ironic during this reading was the teaching about the need for letting go of being right. I think that's a good principle. He said if you practice this it will help you save your marriage. Then I discovered he's been through 3 divorces. Hmmm. Did he not practice what he preached? For a guy as spiritual, hap ...more

Some really helpful information in this book. I read it slowly so I had something to sit with all day. I find myself returning to selected passages to reread them, and they continue to ring true for me.

The beginning of the book was very helpful in me realizing my faults in the way I view the world. After the middle of the book it seemed like the author was just rambling on.
