The Lesson: “Your Erroneous Zones: Step-by-Step Advice for Escaping the Trap of Negative Thinking” became the best selling book of the 1970s because Wayne Dyer bought 5,000 of them and went across the country as an unknown, putting 45,000 miles on his car, and creating a demand for his book that wasn’t there. He wasn’t concerned about any outcomes; he acted only on his singular purpose – to get his message out to the world. You can use this same principle in your life and relationships.

Notable Excerpt: “Today, I trust that it will all work. You act on what you think about, so if you’re constantly thinking about the scarcity in your life… about what’s wrong… about what you don’t have, and processing your world that way, then that will be what you need to act on. You have to act on what’s missing. It’s just like in a relationship; if you think about what you don’t like about somebody, then you have to act upon that. Your relationship with another person is located within you, where everything is located… What’s inside is always within our control.”
