40 Wayne Dyer Quotes about Your Power to Change

The late Wayne Dyer remains a beloved pioneer in the personal development realm. He taught that the power of the mind creates your reality (or at least co-creates it). If you, too, want love to be your greatest gift to the world, read these Wayne Dyer quotes. They'll tell you how powerful you are.

40 Wayne Dyer Quotes about Your Power to Change Your Reality

1. “With everything that has happened to you, you can feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.” – Wayne Dyer

2. “My goal is not to be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be.” – Wayne Dyer

3. “I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside.” – Wayne Dyer

4. “If you don’t make peace with your past, it will keep showing up in your present.” – Wayne Dyer

5. “Circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him.” – Wayne Dyer

6. “All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” – Wayne Dyer

7. “Conflict cannot survive without your participation.” – Wayne Dyer

8. “Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances." – Wayne Dyer

9. “See the light in others, and treat them as if that is all you see.” – Wayne Dyer

10. How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours. – Wayne Dyer

11. “Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.” – Wayne Dyer

12. “Everything you are against weakens you. Everything you are for empowers you.” – Wayne Dyer

13. “The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” – Wayne Dyer

14. “Peace can be a lens through which you see the world. Be it. Live it. Radiate it out. Peace is an inside job.” – Wayne Dyer

15. “When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” – Wayne Dyer

16. “It’s one of the great lessons of life. What comes out when life squeezes you? When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside. It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing—your mother, your brother, your children, your boss, the government. If someone says something about you that you don’t like, what comes out of you is what’s inside. And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice.” – Wayne Dyer

17. “If you have anything in your heart, that’s anything other than love, you’ve got to get it out.” – Wayne Dyer

18. “A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.” – Wayne Dyer

19. “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.” – Wayne Dyer

20. “Love is co-operation rather than competition.” – Wayne Dyer

21. “Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.” – Wayne Dyer

22. “If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t, you will see obstacles.” – Wayne Dyer

23. “Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” – Wayne Dyer

24. “You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now.” – Wayne Dyer

25. “There is no stress in the world, only people thinking stressful thoughts.” – Wayne Dyer

26. “There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love. There’s only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.” – Wayne Dyer

27. “Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.” – Wayne Dyer

28. “Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.” – Wayne Dyer

29. “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.” – Wayne Dyer

30. “The only limits you have are the limits you believe.” – Wayne Dyer

31. “The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.” – Wayne Dyer

32. “Self-worth comes from one thing: Thinking that you are worthy.” – Wayne Dyer

33. “Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” – Wayne Dyer

34. “Let the world know why you’re here, and do it with passion.” – Wayne Dyer

35. “Don’t die with your music still in you.” – Wayne Dyer

36. “Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.” – Wayne Dyer

37. “You may have convinced yourself that giving is impossible because you have too little for yourself. If you are not generous when it is difficult, you will not be generous when it is easy. Generosity is a function of the heart, not the wallet.” – Wayne Dyer

38. “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

39. “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” – Wayne Dyer

    Jill, yes I love this concept! I believe that what’s inside of us, beautiful and ugly the same, comes out more pronounced in times of stress. We’re all humans. We are complex beings with a lot to process. x

    I like his comment that what comes out when stuff is difficult is what’s inside .great way to look at who you really are warts and all .only way to change is to really look and be astringently honest with yourself especially when its not what you expect and qualities you dislike in others ! We are all human all of us have a dark side .it’s managing that dark side .I’m sure there was a lot of pain and perseverance behind these rules of living well .

    He did write about driving! He wrote that when the little old lady in tha car in front of you can barely see over the steering wheel and is driving 5mph instead of going crazy think about how she could be with her husband having a wonderful day and many blessings and to send her love. This is paraphrasing ❤️😁

    Hi Rita, Wayne Dyer left behind a legacy of love on so many topics. So glad you loved this collection! I don’t think I’m familiar with what he wrote about driving. I’m sorry I can’t help more on this one! I bet a search on Google would bring up something :) Good luck! ~ Jen

    Hello Jen,
    Wayne Dyer has always been one of my favorite authors because he had so much "good"to say. I listened to the old tapes, read books, listened to him at real estate seminars….and now, I need to find what he wrote about one’s attitude about driving and other drivers. Could you point me in that direction? I’d be so grateful.
    Thank you,
    Rita Halverson
