The recent passing of Dr. Wayne Dyer has led me to contemplate some of the thoughts that he provoked in me that led to my own personal growth. One of Dr. Dyer’s projects was called the Shift. The shift was a movie and a book about finding your true purpose in life and doing the things that truly make you happy. It teaches many wonderful lessons, and the project has a lot of layers. You can watch it more than once and something new will jump out at you each time. The shift is the natural movement in life that we experience as we age and become more experienced. We shift in personal empowerment. Here are some of the lessons I learned from this wonderful project.
“We are either getting better or we are getting worse, nobody stays the same”. This is true in all aspects of our lives. In all that you do, either you are becoming more effective or you are becoming less vital. What you pursue counts and it is a simple matter of personal choice how self-improvement enters your life. My three main areas of focus are on the physical, mental and spiritual sides of myself. My goal each day is to become at least 0.001% better than I was yesterday. If I can keep growing and becoming a better person than my contribution to the world will grow and my experience will be that much more significant.
