Review of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s Latest Book – Wishes Fulfilled

By Melissa Miller-Young

There’s one thing I can say about all of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s books – they never disappoint. Time and time again I have read something he has written and thought to myself, “it doesn’t get any better than this.” But time and time again, they actually DO get better, and his latest title, Wishes Fulfilled is his best project yet.

Wishes Fulfilled is designed to take the reader on a voyage of discovery, allowing them to begin to tap into the amazing manifesting powers that they possess within and create a life in which all that they imagine becomes a present fact. Stating that, “everything that now exists was once imagined and everything that will ever exist must first be imagined,” Wishes Fulfilled is dedicated to the reader’s mastery of the art of realizing all of their desires.

The timing of this read for me was perfect as it was in the midst of my radical downsizing, and as I was taking rapid steps to simplify my life and make it one that I am able to more fully enjoy. Dyer writes that, “all transformation begins with an intense burning desire to be transformed.” and right now I have that desire, and am focused on transforming my life each and every day.

The desire to transform however, isn’t enough, and Dyer takes the reader through a series of steps that they need to take to create a life where all they imagine really and truly can come true. He starts by urging readers to change their concept of themselves, as well as make the choice to change what they believe to be true. He then follows that with urging the reader to connect with their higher selves, or as he referred to it as, “the spark of God within you” and to expand that into a consciously larger component of their daily lives. It is through the daily connection with the higher self that the readers’ concept will gradually evolve into highest self.

Midway through the fourth chapter, I was not only getting what Dyer was conveying, I was getting excited about it! At this point in my life, change IS possible, transformation CAN happen, and I can design a life that works for me! As Dyer has said repeatedly throughout the years, “when the student is ready the teacher will appear,” and I feel that this hits the nail on the head with my experience with Wishes Fulfilled. I had this book for a few weeks before I had the time to read it. I was at the tail end of my radical downsizing and BOOM! I was ready to learn and once again the teacher appeared!

Leading readers through five Wishes Fulfilled Foundations, Dyer focuses on the power of the imagination as well as the necessity of living a life on purpose, and being balanced in the mind, body, and spirit. He takes the reader through embracing their higher selves and focusing on the power of their words and thoughts, on to assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled. Through shifting our attention, Dyer helps readers understand that they should start living from rather towards their goals. “It is” has to replace the “someday.” Lastly, Dyer helps the reader understand the power of sleep and the subconscious mind.

In true Dyer fashion, he ends each chapter with suggestions for the reader to implement the ideas and principles presented, and the final chapter of Wishes Fulfilled is aptly titled, “Making It All Come Together.” In the final chapter, Dyer poses seven questions for the reader to contemplate and explore as they begin their wishes fulfilled life. The questions help the reader not only explore their journey, but also realize that yes, all things truly are possible.

It is in the ways that the book is formatted that something so incredibly life-changing and revolutionary becomes doable. Radical life change is hard. Changing a lifetime of thought and patterns, also hard. But not with Dyer serving as the teacher, he not only makes me want to be a better person, and live a more fulfilling life – he shows me how.Through real-life examples and personal insights into his journey, Dyer has once again shown me, I truly AM responsible for all aspects of my life, and now I won’t be working towards the “someday”, instead I will simply realize that it is, and it is now.

Review: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

By Trent Hamm, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was perhaps the personal development book of the 1990s and is still the book many people think of when they hear the phrase “personal development book.” I first picked up the book myself in high school when serving as a district officer in a large youth organization (the FFA, if you must know) – our advisor gave each officer a copy of the book to keep, but after reading it, I passed it on to others because it didn’t make much of an impact on me at the time.
