Excuses Begone! : How to Change Lifelong, Self-Defeating Thinking Habits
In Excuses Begone! Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how to change lifelong, self-defeating thinking patterns that prevent you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health. You may know what to think but find it terribly difficult to change thinking habits that have been with you since childhood.
This business of changing habituated thinking patterns is really the business of eliminating the same old tired excuses. People are forever using excuses and defending those excuse patterns as if they were actually true. Such statements as It would be very difficult for me to change . . . If I changed, it would create family dramas . . . I'm too old or too young to change . . . I've always been this way . . . It's in my DNA so I can't change . . . I can't afford the things I truly want and I've always been this way are all excuses that are used regularly without challenging the truth of these thinking habits. When you eliminate excuses that explain your shortcomings or failures, you'll awaken to your infinite possibilities. Removing the excuses involves examining these thinking habits under a new and truthful light.
In this groundbreaking lecture, Wayne presents a compendium of conscious and subconscious excuses employed by virtually everyone, along with a new paradigm that guides you to put those excuses to rest once and for all. You'll learn to apply specific questions to any excuse, and then proceed through the steps of the Excuses Begone! paradigm. The old habituated ways of thinking will melt away as you experience the joy ofreleasing excuses and the absurdity of hanging on to them. There are no excuses worth defending ever, even if they've always been part of your life.
This lecture represents Wayne's effort to help anyone whose self-defeating thoughts are persistently present, learn how to discard those old thinking habits, and discover the infinite possibilities of life!

1 . Worth the Price of Admission, and then some.
Posted October 30, 2010 by Michael J. , Buffalo Grove, IL.There are moments in reading this book that are worth the price of admission alone, and then there are probably a few dozen moments more in which you'll feel the same. Sure the book is a bit disorganized, written on the whim, but instead of an organized "how to" perfectly formatted for the reader, the best way I would describe this is to imagine this as a two-hour conversation with an old soul, and quite possibly, the wisest person you have ever met. In that time, you're given perspectives and wisdom you would have otherwise not known had you not taken the time to listen. Wayne is a person who just seems to see the angles you never saw before. Now, will you agree with everything he has to say, probably not. But certainly there are pages within this book that you'll be glad you took the time to sit down read. How much, depends on the degree you wish to apply meaning to them. Personally, I'm a changed man, and for the better, and that's good enough for me.
2 . It just makes so much sense!
Posted September 24, 2009 by Shelly , Creighton, SKI watched the author on PBS and bought the book shortly after. It is a really good read. I have started to read it for the second time. It really makes you stop and take notice of all the stupid excuses we have accumulated over time that are holding us back.
