Your Passionate Power
Here’s a concept you won’t want to forget: passion always trumps excuses. Keep in mind that when I use the word passion, I’m not referring to the romantic notions that this concept conjures. Instead, I’m equating it to a vigorous kind of enthusiasm that you feel deep within you and that isn’t easy to explain or define. This kind of passion propels you in a direction that seems motivated by a force beyond your control. It’s the inner excitement of being on the right path, doing what feels good to you, and what you know you were meant to do.
It’s my contention that the mere presence of passion within you is all you need to fulfill your dreams. Remember that God is in no need of excuses, ever. The creative Divine Spirit is able to manifest anything it contemplates, and you and I are the results of its contemplating itself into material form. Thus, when we have an emotional reaction that feels like overwhelming passion for what we’re contemplating, we’re experiencing the God within us…and nothing can hold us back.
Passion is a feeling that tells you: This is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.
When you’re enthusiastic, nothing seems difficult. When you have passion, there are no risks: family dramas become meaningless, money isn’t an issue, you know that you have the strength and the smarts, and the rules laid down by others have no bearing on you whatsoever. That’s because you’re answering your calling—and the you who is doing the answering is the highest part of you, or the God within.
The presence of passion within you is the greatest gift you can receive. And when it’s aligned with Spirit, treat it as a miracle, doing everything you can to hold on to it. I feel this way about the creation of my books. I’ve learned over the years that when I go to that place of passion within me, there’s no force in the universe that can interfere with my completing a project. My life is consumed by the passion I feel for what I’m doing—yet I know that as long as I feel this, I’m experiencing the God within.
My enthusiasm seems to cause my world to endlessly offer me cooperative, co-creating experiences. I’m willing and I’m eager, and not just about my writing—I feel the same way about staying in shape, enjoying my family, giving a lecture, or whatever it may be. If you have passion, there is no need for excuses, because your enthusiasm will trump any negative reasoning you might come up with. Enthusiasm makes excuses a nonissue. When you seek the presence of your creative Spirit and are filled with passion about virtually everything you undertake, you’ll successfully remove the roadblocks from your life and enjoy the active presence of Spirit.

Dear Mr. Dyer I am Japanese 40-year-old. I got an opportunity to read your book Change Your Life two years ago. I will continue to make an effort to change myself from now on.
I want to tell to thank you sincerely.
Thank you, Wayne Dyer for your inspiration. I have got your book “Wishes Fullfilled” since yesterday. I am a pianoteacher from Holland, living in Germany and at the moment my financial situation isn’t good. Wayne Dyer, you are a gift to humankind (and I like your voice and the way you look at older age). With love.
I listen to you every day on my way to teach my 5th graders. Each year brings new challenges, and I need help learning how to accept changes, not just with the system, but within myself. I feel blessed to have discovered your wisdom. Thank you for teaching me and reminding me how to pray. Keep writing, keep sharing, and know you are so loved.
Thank you for your unending inspiration and passion! It’s always motivating to hear the subtlety of feelings articulated so clearly in words. In gratitude for all the great work that you bring to the planet!

Hello Dr. Dyer: Have been applying your work, re-believing in myself and am having some success with my poetry. Am taking bigger, bolder steps. Here’s another: Could I send you a collection of poems that I feel speak to many, and would you look at it, or perhaps pass it on to someone?
Dear Mr. Dyer Thank you so much for your service. I found that I am opened for a lot of possibility. What does it mean, when the bird landed on top of my head, stayed peaceful maybe 30 sec (I didn’t move) and then flew away. I cried like a baby !! Do u think it was spirit like in your story about a butterfly with Jack? Thank you so much.
Dr. Wayne.. I started your meditation process and it helped me tremendously. I occasionally see you on PBS, BUT it was last sunday morning when I once again watched a 1/2 hour special you did from Newfoundland Canada..I enjoy listening to you speak. Your voice is calming in itself. A BIG THANKYOU.
When I open my eyes and look for details – I see God.
When I quiet my thoughts and just absorb all that is going on around me – I see myself.
When all the beauty makes my heart sing – I see unity.
When life penetrates my soul in these precious moments – I can do nothing but write about all the love I feel.
This is truly my passion!
Recently discovered your work. I agree with your writings. Life does de-rail many people. I am in the process of writing my first book and working to establish my blog and video to help those who have suffered loss. Do you have any recommendations of publishing firms? I am working with Abrams Artistry for consulting services.
Thank you for this post. I realized the other day I was luxuriating in the passion of a creation of a work of my own. Years in dream mode and finally the work was done. And yet, my driving passion (to my surprise) pushes me further on a mission I once admired in others – and now try to embrace.
Dear Mr. Dyer
I have enjoy your books that I have read – six or seven so far. They have helped me a lot thank you very much for being you and walking with God.
Thank you SO much for all you say regarding passion within you this is everything I try SO hard to explain; describe about the belief in reason behind why I need to get my book published I am SO passionate about it being available to so many to help and inspire others to improve & recover following a stroke and not to give up.
