A Tribute to Wayne Dyer

There have been many spiritual gurus, but none have touched as many lives as Wayne Dyer. I have learned many critical lessons from Wayne that apply to anyone seeking to transform their life.

Here's what I learned from Wayne:

  1. He measured success not by the money he made but by the lives he touched.
  2. He lived as if no one was watching, and simultaneously as if everyone was watching; blending selfish joy and selfless service as if they were the same currency.
  3. He treated everyone as family and willingly took on the role of surrogate father, as well as a spiritual guide to his millions of grateful followers.
  4. He never cared what people thought about him, while he simultaneously changed what people thought. In retrospect, I can now see that he boldly took great satisfaction from his ability to do that.
  5. He lived a richly abundant life, while living it simply, worrying less about profits and keenly focused on the purpose of his work.
  6. To him, life itself was the gift, and love was the only reward worth seeking.
  7. He made the most mundane facts interesting, and simplified the complicated nature of spiritual awareness, which enhanced his charm as he brought us all closer to God.
  8. He lived his life so authentically that you felt as if you were always seeing who was in EVERY minute, sort of blurring the lines between reality and fiction right before your very eyes.
  9. It was never clear who his REAL family and friends were, because in his mind there was hardly a difference, yet he fiercely dedicated his life to a small circle of loyal family and friends, as he opened his world (and even his home) to a barrage of strangers.
  10. Finally he pushed the boundaries of life itself, never accepting anything at face value, always searching for meaning, and always, always, believing that miracles would show up exactly on time.

Thank you Wayne for leaving a little part of yourself in each of us. Thank you for the gift of your dharma and for the volumes of work that have forever changed our ability to see the face of God in ourselves and in every one else. In your honor I commit to "see the light in others and will act as if that is all I see.

Growing a Conscious Brand – It’s Time for a Shift
Growing a conscious business is very different from growing a traditional business. As entrepreneurs, we prioritize serving customers, taking care of our employees and making a positive impact in our community, IN ORDER TO make money.
Are you in the Grow Zone?
For decades I’ve tried to understand why some people are able to break through barriers and grow, while others remain stagnant and stuck. The simple answer is “fear is the only thing holding us back.
Four Types of Conscious Entrepreneurs
Business should be a force for good. We've found that the majority of entrepreneurial companies are conscious. There are actually four types of conscious entrepreneurs who are driven by two factors: meaning and impact.
