Description

From the author of Real Magic and the multimillion-copy bestseller Pulling Your Own Strings, positive and practical advice for breaking free from the trap of negative thinking.

If you're plagued by guilt or worry and find yourself falling unwittingly into the same old self-destructive patterns, then you have "erroneous zones" -- whole facets of your approach to life that act as barriers to your success and happiness. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer can now help you break free!

If you believe that you have no control over your feeling and reactions, Dyer reveals how much you can take charge of yourself and manage how much you let difficult situations affect you. If you spend more time worrying what others think than working on what you want and need, Dyer points the way to true self-reliance. From self-image problems to over-dependence upon others, Dyer gives you the tools you need to enjoy life to the fullest.

    You are always in control of your own emotions. That is one of the things this book taught me when I read it. It is a pretty good self-help book.

    A great book with practical advice to live positively.
  • (5/5)
    I've read probably about a dozen similar "self-help" books, and none made more rational yet simple and human sense to me than this. It will make you ask, "how have I been living like this my whole life? "

    I read this inspirational and influential book in my twenties, and gave copies to some of my friends. Your Erroneous Zones provided insights to help free me from self-destructive behavior patterns, and helped me to create the life I wanted for myself.

  • (5/5)
    Very comprehensive! It's hard to look at your own flaws but this gives such a powerful perspective and encouragement along with great ideas on how to really get to that place in your own life!
  • (5/5)
    Straightforward and actionable advice put kindly. There’s a good chance I’ll revisit this book for the rest of my life. (This audiobook isn’t a verbatim rehearsal of the original, by the way. I’m sure he goes over everything but it’s more informal and he’s not reading from a script. I might look for the original published version too, because I sometimes reading helpful things put differently helps them land even after the original doesn’t land anymore. Thanks for this, my author guy. Thanks for putting it out there. You’re a good human.)
  • (5/5)
    A push I needed! I really am trying to become more positive in my life this really just simplified it again for me!
  • (5/5)
    Amazing, so helpful and honestly life changing. I have taken on a complete new perspective on everything. I cannot wait to apply the things that I have learned. There is a real rawness to the words that he speaks that really help deliver the message. Separately, I was very taken aback when he said the ‘No word. I know he was just listing it amongst other labels but I just had to pause and process for a minute.

    I love it. Thank you for making this available to us.

  • (5/5)
    This was a great audio. As I journey on the road to self awareness reading books such as the literature written by Wayne Dyer has tremendously impacted my thought process. I am thankful for people such as him to pour out and share this information knowledge and understanding to those who strive to be more mindful of them sales and to help others along the way. Thank you!

    The audiobook is only an hour and a half, because it's abridged, but it's packed full of helpful information. Here are my favorite points:

    We have control of our feelings. We have the choice of how we process other people's opinion. Esteem lies within you, not in other people. That's why it's called self-esteem.

    "As you think, so shall you be."

    "You are what you think about all day long."

    If you put a label on yourself such as "I am..." and your label becomes your reality, then you're acting on that and processing that as who you are. It's a neurosis trap. It's self-defeating. These "I am" statements are a choice. You can choose the kind of personality you're going to have. It's not something you're stuck with. If you say "I'm disorganized," it's because you choose to be. You can be any way that you want to be.

    You can do anything!

    Don't let an old person move into your body.

    Guilt is the immobilization of living in the past. It's very powerful and gets people to conform. Ask yourself, "Instead of feeling guilty now, what could I be doing? What am I avoiding?" Teach people that guilt no longer applies.

    Worry immobilizes you in the present about the future. Again, what could you be doing now if you didn't worry?

    Ask yourself, "Does it immobilize me in the present?" If so, then get rid of it.

    When the student is ready, the teacher appears. For example, you may have a book on your shelf at home for decades before you actually read it and realize how much valuable information it contained.

    Security is an illusion.

    You have to make the decision to change. It's a fear of moving into new territory that keeps you where you are and the fear is only in your mind. A new, healthy, fulfilling, exciting and exquisite life is only a thought away.

    Don't keep looking for fairness, justice or for everything being exactly equal. Stop comparing yourself to others and keep your nose out of other people's garden.

    If you want to get ahead in life and all that you know you can make of it, then you have to say to yourself, "Why am I choosing not to do that?"

    What you think about expands. If you argue for limitations in your life, that's what you'll get. If you argue for happiness, that's what you'll get.

    Anything you can visualize you can act upon.

    You won't be punished for your anger, you'll be punished by your anger. When you're angry, you're carrying around the seeds of your destruction and the destruction of others. It's not the act that makes you angry. It's how you process the act that does.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to read something inspiring that helps you to change your mindset.

    Some very helpful advice . It's stuff that you hear often but he has a good way of phrasing it that I think will stick with anyone . I know some of what he said is going to stick with me.

    I read this book within a month of its initial publication. I read it almost straight through and found it, at the time, quite motivating. Like many self-help books, it has little original to say; its power lies in the compelling presentation. I confess, I have not revisited the book since then (1976) so I freely admit I could be misremembering and I may not react to it in the same way today. I do however still recall several specifics from the book and find them useful in everyday life.
