30 Inspirational Self Improvement Quotes by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Some people just seem to have a knack for inspiring, motivating and bringing out the best in others.  That is definitely the case with Dr. Wayne Dyer.

16937371727_153017c207_bAs a self improvement guru, inspirational speaker, and author, Wayne Dyer touches the lives of people all over the world.

His positive teachings jolt those who have forgotten their greatness, serving as the ultimate reminder of the personal power that lives within us all.

Wayne Dyer has published more than 30 self help books, including the New York Times bestsellers 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, The Power of Intention and (one of my personal favorites) Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life. You may have even seen him on PBS where several of his books are featured as a national public television special.

His successes and his strategies for helping others to achieve success, are even more inspiring when you consider that Wayne Dyer spent his childhood in orphanages and foster homes. He is an amazing inspiration to the disadvantaged and to anyone who has ever felt hopeless.

I hope you find this collection of my favorite Wayne Dyer quotes as inspiring as I do.
