5.0 out of 5 stars A Mind Blowing Read!, 20 Oct 2009
This review is from: Excuses Begone!: How to Change Lifelong, Self-Defeating Thinking Habits (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed this book. I loved that Dyer gives us the 18 typical
excuses thought by most people. These include: "I am too old/or too young",
"I am afraid", "I don't have the time" or "I don't have the money" etc...

After naming the excuses, he let's us in on the seven principles for
overcoming excuses: awareness, alignment, now, contemplation,
willingness, passion, and compassion. After telling us the principles
he shows the reader a new way of looking at excuses, creating a
paradigm shift. Dyer asks the reader to ask themselves six questions
which include "Is it true?" , "Where did the excuse come from?" and
"What is the payoff?"

Other books I read, and highly recommend, to let go of self defeating
thoughts are Working on Yourself Doesn't Work: The 3 Simple Ideas That Will Instantaneously Transform Your Life How to Create a Magical Relationship: The 3 Simple Ideas that Will Instantaneously Transform Your Love Life Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment by award winning authors Ariel & Shya Kane.
