Life Changing

When I was 18 years old I read a book that truly changed my life. It’s entitled “Pulling Your Own Strings” by Dr. Wayne Dyer. It became my bedside bible and I refer back to the book even till this day. What resonated with me about it was that it showed you how to stand up for your rights and beliefs without the bullies of the world victimizing you for having the strength to express what is best for you. It also teaches you how to say things in a way that are not offensive to others and allows you to have your final say! In short, it helped me not to be as much of a doormat as I used to be.

All of his books have been extremely helpful, but this one in particular has been the most helpful to me. Some day I hope to meet Dr. Dyer! Here is the books description:

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how we all can prevent ourselves from being victimised by others and begin to operate from a position of power at the centre of our own lives. Asserting that we alone are responsible for how much we will be controlled by others, Dyer offers his practical plan for developing new attitudes toward the most common sources of victimisation and manipulation, such as family members and authority figures in the workplace.

For example, families can be tremendously coercive and demanding, but they can also be an immensely rewarding part of your life. Dyer shows how to cope with the negative side and contribute to the positive.

Also, in their working life many people stay in unfulfilling jobs because they feel constrained by their present experience or because they fear change. Dyer shows that by being enthusiastic and flexible, you can find the work that makes you happy.

In this modern–day classic, Dyer shows you how to stop being the victim in all aspects of everyday life and to take charge of your destiny.
