I was looking for something "motivational" to read and I thought I'd give this book a try.
It has not disappointed me, quite the contrary: I find it rather useful, since I was able to recognize myself in many of the situations described here and I am certainly one of the people who would benefit most from finding a way to start "pulling their own strings". Naturally, change takes time and it's up to each and every one of us to implement it in our own lives.
But I am certainly going to be more aware of my own thought patterns and my interaction with other people from now on and I am sure I can benefit greatly from having read Wayne Dyer's book.

Having been a clerk, Wayne Dyer obviously had an axe to grind. Being assertive is not enough. In the end, we need to assess our deeper belief systems, claim our responsibility, and d This book started off so well and then devolved into a diatribe about avoiding clerks and always going straight to management.
In the end, we need to assess our deeper belief systems, claim our responsibility, and deal with our repressed trauma. Dyer seems to be of the impression that people can instantly brush off a traumatic childhood or event just because it's in the past and focusing on it isn't serving them.
I get where he's coming from, but I also think his rhetoric isn't helpful. Sometimes things aren't as simple as shoving things down.
Repression isn't always the answer. But basically, I didn't like this book at all and I wouldn't recommend it. If you have issues with assertiveness, I think the book Boundaries: Where to Draw the Line is a way better book than this one. Feb 09, Gregg rated it liked it.

It does start off strong, and the author makes salient points throughout the first two thirds of the book, before unwinding into a quasi-philosophical ponderance of victimhood. Aug 22, Tanetta Caleb rated it it was amazing.
This book was life changing for me.
I read this book two-years ago and it changed my views on alot of things. I decided to let alot of things go forgiving, not holding grudges, trying not to take offense easily. Although life is hard and we are all humans who feel and hurt, this book helped me to think outside of my box along with reading my bible to heal my mind and not get stuck on what someone else is doing.
We shouldn't be passive and let people walk over us but we should address an issu This book was life changing for me.
We shouldn't be passive and let people walk over us but we should address an issue if we think it is worth addressing, then walk away from it. I can't say enough about this book and probally not doing it any justice but if you read it, you will never be the same.
I feel like I've just been holed up in a dank cabin with Dr Phil, having a deep and meaningful. Are they bro pals? Three stars for classic s gender stereotyping and lessons in assertiveness. Useful reminders, but I do hope in this age of narcissistic self enlightenment seeking, maybe we're a bit beyond this now. I've never read a Wayne Dyer book before, but chose this book to be my Wayne Dyer read.
I feel that this book, published in , and it's message and advice is still very relevant; perhaps even more so with technology making it even easier for people to behave badly and make demands on our time and lives. It was helpful in ways I feel like this book is a little outdated.
There are plenty of concepts that were true in the 70's, but are just plain unacceptable now-a-days Still, it did make some good points and will help me on my journey to being more confident. Oct 13, Kym rated it it was ok. I have long been a fan of Wayne Dyer's work, but this earlier book from wasn't one I enjoyed.
While much of the book focused on increasing assertiveness and avoiding being the victim, I found it was written focusing on victimhood and negative aspects of life. If you ever suffer from feeling like a victim, this book will help you see your worth and how to empower you.
I would definitely recommend it. Sep 29, Milan Rusimov rated it it was amazing. I think this is very useful and pragmatic book. There are good techniques and it's very useful for creating a new, beeter life. Feb 06, Evelyn Morgan rated it really liked it. I read this book sometime after "Your Erroneous Zones".
Helpful to me, even though it said about the same things as the previous books. Not a bad self-help book. Amazing read Have to read it many times over to sink in the lessons. Oct 04, Jack Sheppard rated it really liked it. For a book a lot of this still holds up.
Pick and choose the chapters that work for you. Good time capsule into the era and definitely thought provoking. Jun 06, Misty Madonna rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fantastic and funny! It is an interesting read It is an interesting read. Also it provides a different perspective about how to view things in life. Worth reading to understand it. Oct 30, Stephen Coates rated it liked it. Self help book with the phrase "A clerk is a jerk".
Readers Also Enjoyed. Self Help. About Wayne W. Wayne W. Wayne Walter Dyer was a popular American self-help advocate, author and lecturer. His book Your Erroneous Zones has sold over 30 million copies and is one of the best-selling books of all time. It is said to have "[brought] humanistic ideas to the masses".
He received his D. He was a guidance counselor in Detroit at the high school level and Wayne Walter Dyer was a popular American self-help advocate, author and lecturer. He was a guidance counselor in Detroit at the high school level and a professor of counselor education at St. John's University in New York. He first pursued an academic career, publishing in journals and running a successful private therapy practice, but his lectures at St. John's, which focused on positive thinking and motivational speaking techniques, attracted students beyond those enrolled.
A literary agent persuaded Dyer to package his ideas in book form, resulting in Your Erroneous Zones; although initial sales were thin, Dyer quit his teaching job and began a publicity tour of the United States, doggedly pursuing bookstore appearances and media interviews "out of the back of his station wagon", according to Michael Korda, making the best-seller lists "before book publishers even noticed what was happening" Books by Wayne W. There are examples of real life situations with new ways to respond to attempts at manipulation.
Becoming aware that victimization is taking place is the first step but it is not enough. Next is to change attitudes and expectations. There are a set of principles and strategies that guide people into acting out on their non-victim status. Being Victimized by Your Past One of the biggest ways people allow themselves to be victimized is by their past. Frequently people will tell others how they should have done something differently or even how they should feel about an event.
People can victimize themselves with the past. This is one of the most useful chapters urging others to purge bad memories and forgive others.
To do this, you can begin to redefine what you expect for yourself during your brief visit on this planet. You can start, I recommend, by expecting to be a non-victim, and by looking more carefully at how you behave as a victim. What Is A Victim? You are being victimized whenever you find yourself out of control of your life. If you are not pulling the strings, then you are being manipulated by someone or something else.
You can be victimized in an endless number of ways. A victim as described here is not "first of all" someone who is taken advantage of through criminal activity. You can be robbed or swindled in much more damaging ways when you give up your emotional and behavioral controls in the course of everyday life, through forces of habit. Victims are first of all people who run their lives according to the dictates of others. They find themselves doing things they really would rather not do, or being manipulated into activities loaded with unnecessary personal sacrifice that breeds hidden resentment.
Yes, people victimize themselves in numerous ways, throughout the everyday business of running their lives. Victims almost always operate from weakness.
They let themselves be dominated, pushed around, because they often feel they are not smart enough or strong enough to be in charge of their lives. So they hand their own strings over to someone "smarter" or "stronger," rather than take the risks involved in being self-assertive. You are a victim when your life is not working for you.
