Top 50+ Wayne Dyer Quotes


Who is Wayne Dyer

Wayne Dyer, the self-help best selling author and motivational speaker, was born on the 10th May 1940 in the United States of America. He first came to prominence whilst lecturing at St Johns University, where his passionate lectures on positive thinking and motivational speaking, drew in many students, as well as literary agents. It was one of these agents that gave Dyer the idea of putting all his theories into a book, which was titled Your Erroneous Zones. This book was released in 1976 and went on to become one of the best selling books ever, with approximately 100 million copies sold so far.

Thanks in part to his publicity efforts and subsequent books being released, Dyer continued to be on the best sellers list, with his other published work including Wishes fulfilled and The Sky’s the Limit. During the height of his public interest, he appeared of many of the national talk shows including The Tonight Show.

Dyer continued over the years to lecture, released audiobooks, programs and publications, often trying to avoid spirituality in his writing but gradually, he began to include this theme, particularly towards the end of his career.
