I called in sick one time from work and was just at home nursing my painful arm while surfing channels. I’d normally catch “Oprah”, “Ellen”, or sitcoms at daytime.

While watching Ellen, one gust struck me even before he came out on screen. Ellen described him as someone whose works she’s been closely following as his books have inspired her and lifted her spirits during her lowest moments.

Then came Dr. Wayne Dyer, a best selling author on self development. Right after the show, I headed to the nearest Fully Booked branch and got his book. Excerpts from his site below:

Wayne W. Dyer, Ph.D., is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He’s the author of 30 books, has created many audio programs and videos, and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows.
His books Manifest Your Destiny,
Wisdom of the Ages, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, and the New York Times bestsellers 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, The Power of Intention, and Inspiration and now Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life have all been featured as National Public Television specials.
Dyer holds a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University and was an associate professor at St. John’s University in New York.
Dr. Wayne Dyer is affectionately called the “father of motivation” by his fans. Despite his childhood spent in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same.
When he’s not traveling the globe delivering his uplifting message, Wayne is writing from his home in Maui. Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life
Dr. Wayne Dyer has a new public television special based on the life-changing book,
Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life, which is airing now. Watch a sneak preview and learn how to change your thoughts, and change your life as Dr. Wayne Dyer reveals modern life lessons from the ancient wisdom text, the Tao Te Ching.

I got his “Change Your Thoughts-Change Your Life”. Excited to start reading this over the weekend.
