How What You Say Can Get in your WayBook - 2009
A child wants to become a marine biologist but makes excuses why it would be implausible, in a book designed to encourage children not to make excuses and follow their dreams.
In his fourth book for children, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer focuses on the topic of excuses and how they can do more harm than we realize. The book demonstrates how excuses go far beyond “my dog ate my homework,” and can actually become words that prevent your child from reaching his or her potential.
The book follows a boy with a seemingly impossible dream who almost lets excuses (“I’m not smart enough” . . . “It’s too hard,” and so on) get in his way.
He discovers, as will your child, that by following a few simple ideas and eliminating excuses . . . anything is possible!
An age-appropriate version of the author's guide to overcoming personal obstacles explains to children what excuses are and how to eliminate them in order to fulfill one's personal potential, sharing the story of a young boy with a seemingly impossible dream who learns helpful lessons about overcoming obstacles. 20,000 first printing.
