Dr. Dyer’s books are always very easy to understand. He even provides steps that can be followed in order to make this shift. This is a companion book to the movie of the same name. I highly recommend this book.
So many people today are feeling a pull to find greater meaning in their lives. It's no longer about how much stuff you can accumulate, how many people you feel better than or how important you can make yourself feel by being busy and being stressed.
The Shift is a movie about making of a movie--Wayne Dyer's information on moving from ambition to meaning--intertwined with three intertwined stories of lives we can relate to. The director of the film whose career is disintegrating in front of his eyes, a dedicated mother of two young boys who yearns feel her own personal fulfillment and an affluent and successful couple whose identities and lives revolve around money and success. The film crew and staff of Asilomar, where the movie is filmed, also play important roles.
Each time I watch this movie I get something more out of it--it touches me on a deeper level and in an unconscious way. It keeps me on track with what I really want in live--to be the very best version of ME and to be of service to others.
For me, the DELUXE version is the best. It has the interview with Dr. Dyer that the movie is based on as well as additional questions and commentaries. And it has the music video that is fun too. I really like Ethan Lipton's songs in the movie. They are fun and funny.
If you are feeling that pull to have more meaning in your life, this movie will inspire you and maybe even give you some ideas on how you too can shift your life for the better.
Page 45: Throughout life, we're bombarded by ego messages attempting to convince us that our worth comes from observations and opinions of others. Once again, this false self proclaims as truth that something or someone external to us is responsible for our validation. Self esteem stems from internally held positive beliefs about ourselves, not the approval of others.
Page 46: Believing that who we are is defined by what other people think of us cripples the joyful spontaneity of or authentic selves. If others disapprove, and their opinion defines us, then we modify ourselves or shrink from view. The fact is that who you are has absolutely nothing to do with any thoughts or opinions that exist in anyone else in the world. Period! Wayne has done an excellent job of getting this one point across and I say Bravo Wayne! A well needed teaching and the understanding of it sets ones spirit free to fly!
For those of you who struggle with the opinions of others and are seeking approval from others, this book will set you free! It will put you on the right path to freedom that you never felt before. A must read.

I really recommend this movie, we are all beginning to awaken and will have heaven on earth when we do.
As I don't currently own a multi region DVD player, did not order The Astral City, and ordered this instead.
It is filmed as though Dr Dyer was being interviewed for a documentary about "the shift", (and although he is), there is a clever juxtapose of storylines of people going through "the shift", illustrating what happens and making this very enjoyable, enlightening viewing.
The lip sync went out a few times but not sure if this was down to DVD quality or my player, but worth mentioning in case other viewers experience this.
I am looking forward to getting more of Dr Dyers DVD's.
I keep watching nearly every week and it has made a huge difference in the way I perceive my experiences thus improving my quality of life.
Trust me if you watch this you will feel the shift happening. It just makes you more calm in the way you deal with things in life. I believe that you will see certain unnecessary worries just disappear and start enjoying your life more and you are more likely to find your purpose in life.
Wayne Dyer is an amazing teacher.. I am glad I stumbled across his material. :-)
To recommend to someone who wants to be achieve more fulfilling lifestyle.
It's so hard to explain in words, but I guarantee that you'll see life 10 times more beautiful, and you'll be 100 times happier after reading and studying this book.
Yes, I wrote studying, because it's not just a simple lecture, it's also a priceless source of happiness.
