Dr Wayne Dyer
I had the pleasure of listening to Dr Wayne Dyer at a Writer's Workshop in Melbourne last month, he was very inspiring, even though we only got to watch a previous recording played out on a huge screen. He couldn't be there in person as the day before he got sick on stage and had to be hospitalised. He is a speaker regarding self development and an author of many books on the subject, he is a very interesting guy to listen to. When Dr Dyer took ill the day before, a medical doctor happened to be in the audience and volunteered to go back stage to help out.
For my session the story of what happened was relayed to us all. The medical doctor that had come to listen to Dr Dyer had actually only decided to become a doctor after being inspired by Dr Dyer when he heard him speak as a youth. He was so inspired that he followed his dreams and had always wanted to have the opportunity to listen to Dr Dyer again, he never forgot what motivated him to become the doctor he now was. Amazingly Dr Dyer was treated years later by someone he had himself inspired!
