Wayne Dyer - 20 Abundance & Prosperity Quotes

Dr. Wayne Dyer has been an inspiration for me for at least two decades now and below I wanted to share with you my favorite 20 quotes of his that relate to creating abundance and prosperity

1) "There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen."

2) "Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into."

3) "There is no way to prosperity, prosperity is the way."

4) "Within you is the divine capacity to manifest and attract all that you need or desire."

5) "We are Divine enough to ask and we are important enough to receive."

6) "You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being, not because anybody says so, not because you're successful, not because you make a lot of money, but because you decide to believe it and for no other reason."

7) "When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous."

8) "The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate, but in what you give away."

9) "Successful people make money. It's not that people who make money become successful, but that successful people attract money. They bring success to what they do."

10) "Self-worth comes from one thing -- thinking that you are worthy."

11) "Prosperity in the form of wealth works exactly the same as everything else. You will see it coming into your life when you are unattached to needing it. "

12) "Our intention creates our reality."

13) "Love what you do."

14) "Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life."

15) "It's never crowded along the extra mile."

16) "I will grow. I will become something new and grand, but no grander than I now am. Just as the sky will be different in a few hours, its present perfection and completeness is not deficient, so am I presently perfect and not deficient because I will be different tomorrow. I will grow and I am not deficient."

17) "Heaven on Earth is a choice you must make, not a place we must find."

18) "A non-doer is very often a critic-that is, someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It's easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change."

19) "Anything that has been accomplished by any other human being in the physical realm is within the field of possibility."

20) "Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it."

All of the above quotes & excerpts are credited to Dr. Wayne Dyer.

Great job Chris. You mention some very poignant ideas having to do with attracting abundance giving, worthiness, love, intention, it is. Thank you!

Another prosperity quote from WD, in the form of an affirmation that I use daily, is "I attract success and abundance into my life because that is who I am". Guess what...I AM!!

Hi Chris,

Thanks for posting the Wayne Dyer quotes - and for notifying me of the post. I love all of them!

Since I practice Segment Intending, I really like this quote from Wayne Dyer's Power of Intention Card Deck

Practice Unbending Intent. When you practice unbending intent, you match up with the intent of the all-creative universal mind. So keep a solid picture picture of the task you want to accomplish in your mind, and refuse to let that intention disappear.

Thanks again Chris!

Dear Chris..I printed out the 20 abundance & prosperity quotes to keep with me. I'm having a challenging year...a stroke in April and now severe back & leg pain radiculopathy...the debts and money problems are mounting and sometimes I can hardly think how to go on. Thank you for this encouragement. Carol

Hi again...just to clarify...that last reply was from me....I'm not a guest but didn't sign in before replying. Again thanks. Carol

Dear Chris!

Like you, I am a die-hard fan of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. I have a collection of almost all of his books and tapes. In fact he is my inspiration. ( I wrote a book entitled "Random Thoughts The Power of Thoughts" which will be released in a few months. ")

What I cannot understand is, with all Dr. Dyer's beautiful teachings, why did his beloved wife leave him for another man after twenty years of marriage and 7 children?

Please don't get me wrong. I do not blame Dr. Dyer for what happened to him and I also don't want to judge his wife for what she did. All I want to know is how has he been coping with this unfortunate event in his otherwise perfect life.

Keep up the good work, Chris, and may God bless you always.

Only Dr. Dyer and his former wife know the real reasons.

I'll leave you with a thought What does Wayne's beautiful teachings have to do with his wife leaving him? I see those two issues as having nothing to do with each other.

All things for a reason and a purpose I guess...and exactly as they are suppose to be. 8) ...even when they don't make sense to us sometimes.


12-12-2004 15:07:09

Hi Sol,

With regard to Wayne Dyer's marriage, first and foremost I believe it is his and only his business... and secondly, I would view those circumstances exactly as he teaches - that everything happens for a reason and serves a purpose in our lives.

I will be forever grateful for all the teachings of Wayne Dyer and I am grateful for this board (Chris!) for learning more and sharing.


12-12-2004 17:08:24

Thanks alot for the quotes!!
I have taken the ones that suit me and transformed them into affirmations that I will use when the need arises.

Thanks again!



12-12-2004 23:56:13

Of course it's nobody's business and as I said beforehand, I am a diehard fan of Dr. Wayne Dyer. And as I also said I don't blame him, nor do I judge his wife. It's just that I sympathize with him and although he may say that we are spiritual beings having a human experience, he must have hurt that much during that period and I think he did not deserve to be hurt so. I am confident he has overcome that trial in his life and as you said there must be a reason. I wish him continued success in his life.

No offense to anybody and I wish everyone a blessed holiday season.

BEING a believer, of manifesting ones own destiny. Is what attracted my SELF to DWD. And Beingintroduced to DWD by way of his book - "MANIFEST YOUR DESTINY".

Having always believed and lived my life this way. I just never thought or verbalized it, in the way DWD can. Which is one of the reasons why "I AM", a fan of DR. Wayne Dyer.

I like # 7 & 8, thank you great job, as always.

But as Dr. Wayne Dyer has said, for any of those 20 affirmations to come true, it can not come from the source of the EGO. It must come out of unconditional love and service.

Its kind of like when you give a gift. You do not give someone a gift, because you want a Thank You. You do it out of LOVE, because it makes you feel good, to give.

As DWD says, "You can't take it with you", (You know that suit in the closet with the pockets cut out). And if you can't take it with you, then this journey of life, or this dream, is about giving, it away.

I kind of like the quote,

" I am not what I do, because if I am what I do. Then when I am not doing it, I am nothing". Paraphrasing Dr. Wayne Dyer

Success can be measured in many ways. Becareful what you want to attract into your life, because you will also attract what it is you really don't want in your life, also.

" The elevator to success is out of order. Please take the stairs, one step at a time.

Could you further explain what your definition of "Spiritual Materialism" is?

What up G ?

Simply, to manifest prosperity and abundance, from EGOhood, Yo !

In our society today, we can only think in terms of materialism.

Every human being throughout the Universe has a need or hunger for Spirituality.

- Where did I come from ?
- Who Am I ?
- Is there a God ?

We should never stop asking these questions, everyday.

To use spirituality for success, or to say "Santa I've been good this year, this is what I want, and by the way I deserve it too, I have been very good.

Sorry, oops there are no rules, it is what it is. Let me know what you

Keep 'n it real, up in the field ( unified field) !

Thanks for the abundance list! As a starving artist I always wonder about whether material abundance goes with spirituality - or against it. My needs are always met somehow, but darn it, I often ask, like Tevye the milkman, if it would be so terrible to have a smaaaaaaaaaaall fortune?

Sat in the front row of his last PBS taping, and got a hug afterwards - what a warm and wonderful man! Glee

Thanks Chris for posting these. I have learned so much and my life has benefited greatly from Dr. Dyer. He has changed my life. I now live a life of abundance.

I shut down the other SuccessLIST projects so that I could redirect my energies... but I have no intention of abandoning this discussion board.


This fan discussion board will go on for many more years to come!

A dozen folks have offered to moderate it if I'm unable to manage it and in the coming months I will be turning over sections of this project to them to oversee...but I don't intend on leaving or shutting it down as I know this board is making a difference for thousands of people. I like doing things that make a difference.

Not being as eloquent with words,as Dr. Dyer and many, just want to simply say "thank you" for sharing with us. I have Dr. Dyer's "The Power of Intentions" and "Getting Into the Gap". I take, and indeed appreciate, all inspiration, encouragment, and help throughout life. Thanks so much for your contributions.

Thank you for the ways you share Wayne's truth and passion. You will manifest many wonderful gifts in your own life through your selfless giving to all of us. Though I am unable to contribute another saying by WD, I will share a quotation by Henry David Thoreau which WD has used in his presentations

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." - Henry David Thoreau

Blessings to you!

"You have a very powerful mind that can make anything happen as long as you keep yourself centered."
