We achieved one of our goals reading one of Wayne Dyer's books!,
This review is from: I Can See Clearly Now (Paperback)
We are big fans of Wayne Dyer and Spectrum Turkey ([...]) would not exist if I hadn't read STOP THE EXCUSES. We had all the reasons why we wouldn't follow our dreams to create and build our own specialist holiday retreat (mostly yoga, meditation and pilates but also walking and healing group holidays), where you can also experience many modalities of healing such as EFT, Psych-K, NLP etc., in a tranquil location, a unique environment, surrounded by natural colour therapy - Dalyan is a conservation area due to turtles nesting on the beach.
Author of Lose Wheat, Lose Weight, Antoinette Savill, asked me why we weren't taking steps towards our dreams and I gave her a long list of all the reasons why we couldn't (excuses) which I can see now were mostly fear based, one excuse being it would be a huge investment in a foreign country but also not having all the finances, leaving us vulnerable I felt at the time. The next day I picked up Wayne's book and realised I needed to STOP THE EXCUSES! I imagined myself in a rocking chair, in my later years, reflecting on my life, seeing if I had any regrets and the one that stuck out for me most was if we didn't bild our dream retreat/venue! it was quite a shock to my husband explaining I had changed my mind over night!
We didn't have all the money to build it ourselves but we found a Turkish partner who was happy to build the venue for no fee other than an investment and also to pay for some of the building materials. In addition he negotiated that we bought the land in instalments and introduced us to other investors who also believed in our dream. Everything fell into place in a way we could not have imagined! This year (2014) will be our third full season and already we have a waiting list of teachers/group leaders wanting to run a holiday here, as well as a waiting list for 2015.
Wayne Dyer is included in our morning gratitude walk for the inspiration to create this business (created with love and joy - some stress too of course - lots of enthusiasm and passion). It feels more like a way of life than work, meeting so many like-minded and wonderful people including other authors such as Ezgi Sorman who trained and worked with Deepak Chopra; not forgetting Hari Kalymnios - The Thought Gym, Claire P Hayes - Everyday Happiness, and Stephanie Holland - Absolute On Purpose: A Kick-Ass Guide to Unfurling Your Brilliance Across the Universe. Many guests feel like family and friends, some of them heal, change and transform their lives after their holiday in this magnificent place. What a life of bliss, thanks to Wayne :)
There are numerous other ways Wayne Dyer has helped us to heal, change and transform our lives, simply from reading his books or listening to his audios (Excuses Begone), as does sharing his story in this fantastic new book.
I highly recommend anything by Wayne Dyer!
