Dr. Wayne Dyer
A couple of days ago I had an interesting discussion with my new friend pixie over at her cool site Pixie Dust Beach.
She’s got a lot going on there – you should really go check it out.
And our discussion was in response to her thought-provoking review of Chris Guillebeau’s self-help book The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life. . .
And I kind of been mulling over this discussion ever since…
You know, I’ve never been much of a self-help kind of guy, but there have been key points in my life where I have benefited from the motivation gained from the so-called Self-Help Expert. Tony Robbins helped me quit smoking oh so long ago…what, almost 25 years ago now…sheesh. I will be forever grateful to him for helping me be rid of that nasty habit. And recently I have completely changed my outlook on life all because of my new Personal Pope, that Greatest of Gurus, Dr. Wayne, The Wonderful, Dyer.
I love him.
So I, by no means, am not down on the Self Help massive exploitation market of pain and misery…at all.
If it makes you happier and healthier, whatever the crutch may be, I’m all for it.
But, really, the answers to the complexities and challenges we face in this one big quest of a question mark we call Life are actually quite simple and fundamental.
We, all of us over a certain age, anyway, for the most part, already know what it is we need to be doing to make our lives less hard and less painful and less depressing…
Admit it…deep down you know what it is you need to be doing to improve your life…
But, unfortunately, it’s not just the knowing that gets it done, is it?
It’s the application, the doing…
And it’s this dang doing of what we know to be true that is so frikkin’ hard.
The doing has got to be done…
So, come on then…
All of us.
All together and gung ho and supportive like…
All Nike mass exploitative marketing like…
Let’s all just do it.
Let’s all just do what we dang well know needs to be done.
Every dang one of us.
