Incredible You! 10 Ways to Let Your Greatness Shine Through – Wayne Dyer
“It is my desire to have these tiny precious souls—so many of whom have brought so much joy into my life as they listened to my stories—close this book and feel so good about themselves that they feel in their hearts that nothing is impossible for them. It would be even more thrilling for me if this becomes the book they choose each night…so that a special person—like you—can read it to them over and over again.” – From the introduction

Renowned author Wayne Dyer has distilled his 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace into a children’s book titled Incredible You! 10 Ways to Let Your Greatness Shine Through. Co-written with Kristina Tracy and illustrated by Melanie Siegel, this colorful uplifting book affirms and encourages children to imagine, explore, and expect beauty in all its forms.

The 10 Ways to Let Your Greatness Shine Through are:

1. Share the Good
2. Find What You Love
3. You are Filled with Love
4. Find a Quiet Place Inside
5. Make Today Great!
6. Change Your Thoughts to Good
7. Take Care of Yourself
8. Picture What You Want
9. Everyone Is Special, Especially You
10. Good Thoughts Give You Energy

This wonderful book isn’t saccharine “just think happy thoughts”. Dyer addresses challenges such as ridicule. Under #7 Take Care of Yourself it says:

“If something or someone makes you feel bad,
don’t let it ruin your day by making you sad.
Let go of the hurt and take care of you.
You can’t control what others say or do.”

The first picture shows two girls whispering and laughing at a third girl, while the second picture shows the girl happily playing in her room as the other two look through the window. She has chosen to play with her toys and enjoy herself—by herself.

Incredible You! contains sage advice for both children and adults. At the end of the book are ten questions designed to encourage children to ponder the ideas presented therein. For example, one question is “It’s important to make time for the things you love. Do you have a passion? Something you love to do more than anything else?”

My son answers “play with trains!” to this one. He really enjoyed it when I read the story to him and asked him the questions in the back. In fact, I had this book among a pile of others that I was going to review. He purposefully walked over the stack one day and removed this book so he could look at it on his own! I’ve reviewed quite a few children’s books and he’s never done this before. So my 7 year old gives Incredible You! an enthusiastic thumbs up, as does his Mom!
