One of the most
important decisions you'll ever make is choosing the kind of
universe you exist in: is it helpful and supportive or
hostile and unsupportive? Your answer to this question
will make all the difference in terms of how you live your life
and what kind of Divine assistance you attract.
you get what you think about, whether you want it or not.
So if you're sure that this is an unfriendly universe, you'll
look for examples to support this point of view. You'll
anticipate people attempting to cheat, judge, take advantage of,
and otherwise harm you. You'll blame the antagonistic,
inhospitable cosmos for not cooperating with you in the
fulfillment of your desires. You'll point the finger at
belligerent folks and bad luck for the kind of world we all live
in. Since this worldview trickles down into every thought
you have, you become a person persistently looking for occasions
to be offended, and therefore in possession of a whole slew of
I implore you
to see the universe as a warm and supportive one. . . because
you'll look for evidence to support this view. When you
believe that the universe is friendly, you see friendly
people. You look for circumstances to work in your
favor. You expect good fortune flowing into your
life. In other words, you aren't looking for excuses!

I need is already here, and it is all for my highest good.
Jot this down and post it conspicuously throughout your home, on
the dashboard of your car, at your office, on your microwave oven,
and even in front of your toilet! Remind yourself: I
live in a friendly universe that will support any thing or desire
that is aligned with the universal Source of all. Such a
stance will be a giant step toward living an excuse-free life.

highest good, so you can then let go of the timing issue
altogether. Just know that it is here and will arrive on
God's schedule--as does everything that makes the journey from
nonbeing to being.
I've found that
by shifting my belief about the nature of the universe, I attract
whatever I desire into my life. I desire love. I
desire peace. I desire health. I desire
happiness. I desire prosperity. Why would I want to
hold the view that our universe is unsupportive, evil, and
unfriendly? How could I expect the Divine realm to hear me
if I'm asking it to be something other than what it is?
Thus, I see my desires in perfect rapport with how the universe

so in the spirit of Saint Francis. Rather than ask God to
grant him peace, this inspiring man beseeched God to "make me
an instrument of Thy peace." In other words, "Let
me be like the Source from which I originated, and then I will
rest in the knowing that it must be here, on its way, and for my
highest good." As you can see, there's no room for
excuses when you apply this model to your everyday life.

and said many times, "When you change the way you look at
things, the things you look at change." And this
applies to the entire universe.
the pages of this transformational book, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
reveals how to change the self-defeating thinking patterns
that have prevented you from living at the highest levels
of success, happiness, and health. Even though you
may know what to think, actually changing those
thinking habits that have been with you since childhood
might be somewhat challenging. If I

or too young . . . I’m far too busy and tired . . . I
can’t afford the things I truly want . . . may all
seem to be true, but they’re in fact just excuses.
So the business of modifying habituated thinking patterns
really comes down to tossing out the same tired old
excuses and examining your beliefs in a new and truthful
