3. Be compassionate

Dyer teaches us to show compassion even with our enemies. He encourages forgiveness so we can live a peaceful life. He explains how your hatred and anger stops you in reaching your goal.

4. The universe responds to your outlook in life.

The way we look in every situation affects our vibration and how the universe responds to your request. So choose to see the best in everything. Look at the brighter side of each situation.

5. Use of positive “I am” affirmation

Dyer highlights a verse “I am that I am” the word “I am” is a powerful and essential statement that makes you feel as if your request is fulfilled and makes you feel accomplished before it was even accomplished. Wayne claimed that it helps us train our subconscious mind and manifest our desire.


6. You always have a choice

You always have a choice if you wanted to have a miserable life or be motivated with different struggles in life. Choose to be driven and live your dream.

7. Successful people attract abundance

Success begins within you. If you believe that you are successful, you can be successful. Begin attracting abundance by understanding that your success starts with who you are.

8. Stay humble

No matter what we achieved, we have to stay humble. Just like what Dr. Dyer says, “Live low, stay low, like the ocean…see everything in your life as miraculous”.

9. Do what you love to do.

Whenever you do what you love to do, success comes after. There is no scarcity of things that you love to. It opens great opportunities that you just need to grab.

10. Be flexible.

If we know how to bend with the situation, we will not get stuck, and it won’t stop you from having a life. We should know how to adapt to different situations that we will encounter. With that, we become stronger to face any obstacles on our way.
