Product Description
Originally produced under the title, Ambition to Meaning. In this compelling film, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores the spiritual journey from ambition to meaning. The powerful shift from the ego constructs we are taught early in life by parents and society - which promote an emphasis on achievement and accumulation - are shown in contrast to a life of meaning, focused on serving and giving back. Through the intertwined stories of an overachieving businessman, a mother of two seeking her own expression in the world, and a director trying to make a name for himself, this entertaining film not only inspires, but also teaches us how to create a life of meaning and purpose.

    By Mommaw
    Although this book is not up to Wayne's normal writings, it is a small book with a simple message. It did possess a really good meditative thought in Chapter 2 part 3, "Who I Am Is What Others Think of Me."
    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.

    By Eugene Suh
    Although I'm a fan of Dr. Dyer, this DVD was shot in a bizarre way, almost as if Dr. Dyer was mocking the filming of this. We see Dr. Dyer literally being interviewed by a film crew with (staged?) interruptions (e.g. cellphone rings, boom operator comments out loud, etc.) while situated stories displaying the morals behind Dr. Dyer's wisdom roll with Dr. Dyer's occasional voice-over. The situated stories play out in an odd way (almost similar to a video you'd see from a company's training program on how to behave at work). Those situated stories are somewhat distracting, though they're meant to be examples of what Dr. Dyer discusses in the video.

    I'd rather see a real lecture on DVD from Dr. Dyer on public television (e.g. from KCET, PBS, etc.).

    5The Shift
    By Linda J. Savory
    Wayne Dyer walks his talk and every time he writes a new book I know it will apply to my life. His advice is sage and trustworthy and works everytime. The shift happened for me after a "fall" as Wayne describes it. I had a stroke and in my recovery I did everything I could to seek spiritial advice on how to recover, becuase medical wisdom said I would never recover. I lost my memory and most of my vision and six years later I'm working on my doctorate in technology. I am 64 years old and have never been healthier or happier and I owe a lot of that to the wisdom and many books I've been following Wayne as he writes them. I recommend this book to anyone that is tired of the physical world predicting your outcome and ready to create your own economics. God is greater than any problem. One of Wayne best books is "There is a Spiritual Solution for Every Problem and that is the truth. Don't wait until you experience a "fall" read every book you can get your hands on that he has written and your life will get better immediately. He tells it like it is.
