On the 10th anniversary of his first public television pledge special, Dr. Wayne Dyer presents a program based on his newest book, "Excuses Begone!" After identifying the 18 most commonly used, self-defeating excuses, Dr. Dyer teaches viewers a method they can immediately use to change damaging habits and move into new realms of possibility.

Get Inspired

Visit for daily inspiration.

There is a voice in the Universe urging us to remember our purpose for being on this great Earth. This is the voice of inspiration, which is within each and every one of us. - by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

You’ll learn to apply specific questions to any excuse, and then proceed through the steps of a new paradigm. The old, habituated ways of thinking will melt away as you experience the absurdity of hanging on to them.

You’ll ultimately realize that there are no excuses worth defending, ever, even if they’ve always been part of your life—and the joy of releasing them will resonate throughout your very being. When you eliminate the need to explain your shortcomings or failures, you’ll awaken to the life of your dreams. Excuses . . . Begone!
