Before and After the Shift

Standard

Dr. Wayne Dyer explored 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 – in contrast to a life of meaning, focused on serving and giving back. According to Dr. Dyer, research was done on males and females before and after they experienced this shift. They were asked what their five priorities/values in life were. Below are the results:
