Affectionately call the 'father of inspiration' by his fans, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field f self-development. He is the author of more than 30 books, has created many audio programs and videos and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. Despite his childhood spend in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same. The Essential Wayne W. Dyer Collection is an omnibus of three of Wayne's best-selling titles- The Power of Intention, The Shift and Excuses Begone. The word intention is generally defined as a pit-bull kind of determination propelling one to succeed at all costs by never giving up on an inner picture. In this view, an attitude that combines hard work with an indefatigable drive toward excellence is the way to succeed. However, intention is viewed very differently in The Power of Intention. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has researched intention as a force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. This book explores intention - not as something you do - but as an energy you're a part of. We're all intended here through the invisible power f intention. This is the first book to look at intention as a field of energy that you can access to begin co-creating your life with the power of intention. The Shift illustrates how and why to make the move from ambition to meaning. As we contemplate leaving the morning of our life, where ego has played a commanding role, and entering the afternoon (and evening), where meaning and purpose replace ambition and struggle, we may encounter unexpected occurrences that accompany this new direction. It's almost a universal law that we'll experience a fall of some kind. Yet these falls or low points provide the energy we need to move away from ego and into a life of meaning and purpose.
