Book Description

You can’t know where or when the Universe will enter your affairs— only that it will. So just pitch your pitches, take your baby steps, enjoy the journey, and prepare to be astounded.

Building on the principles shared in Infinite Possibilities and Manifesting Change, New York Times bestselling author Mike Dooley offers his first “how-to” book, spelling out exactly what can, should, and must be done to harness the Universe and life’s magic and what should—at all costs—never be done. In just seven steps, from understanding the nature of reality to aligning your beliefs with your dreams, Dooley shares exactly what you can immediately do to chart a course for seeing lasting results.

Interwoven with the author’s inspiring personal history, from fear to fortune, to demonstrate firsthand how you can begin from wherever you are, find traction, and blast forward to success, Leveraging the Universe is about using the gifts of thought, word, and deed to harness an infinite grace that tirelessly strives to sweep you off your feet, surround you with friends, and create the life you most want.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Dooley, already a well-established speaker in his own right, broadened his profile as one of the teachers in the DVD and book phenomenon The Secret. Dooley's audios, first created by his motivational company, Totally Unique Thoughts, have begun to make their way into the mainstream trade publishing arena. In this particular seminar—recorded at a Unity church in Raleigh, N.C.—Dooley challenges listeners to harness the world around them as a force for positive change. Dooley emphasizes the importance of mastering thoughts and beliefs, though he also warns against fixating on self-analysis at the expense of old-fashioned determination. The only place the ship of your dreams will never find you is sitting at home waiting for it, he exhorts his audience. Dooley embraces spiritual concepts that fall into New Age categories, but he manages to eschew the ethereal trappings of a guru. Instead, he projects the easygoing stance of a pleasant and engaging 40ish businessman with whom one can easily imagine enjoying a beer or two. (Feb.)

5.0 out of 5 stars I did what Mike said, and changed my life. January 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I had been stagnating in my career as a self-employed real estate investor for a couple of years. I didn't know what I wanted to do when I grew up, but I figured once I acquired enough property and got myself set financially, I would be able to delve into other things that interested me and figure it out. Trouble was, real estate investing just got harder and harder for me to do. The joy wasn't there anymore, and I was forcing myself to do it for the money. Long story short, I burned out on real estate and failed at starting two new businesses. I had sold off assets to finance the startups, and once my cushion was gone, my income was half of what it had been.

After two failed start ups, I figured I had lost whatever trait it was that made self-employed people successful, so I tried for a year to go to work for someone else. I applied for 75 jobs, got three interviews, and no takers. I was broke and discouraged. This had gone on for so long, and I couldn't figure out any way out of it. I really wanted to be done with it all and kill myself, but the thought of leaving my family in financial distress bothered me. I spent a lot of time planning a tragic traffic accident, and applied for additional life insurance, but was denied. "Damn," I said to myself, "I can't even kill myself productively."

It was at this point, early December, that I listened to "Leveraging the Universe." It made so much sense, and I was convinced that Mike was right, because I could see very clearly how every single aspect of my unhappy life had started as a thought in my mind. I was giving FULL attention to the lack, and was getting more and more of it. I quickly understood that I had incredible manifesting power, and it was all pointed in the wrong direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leveraging The Universe and Engaging the Magic March 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I cannot put into words how much I adore this man. He is indeed a natural born speaker. Yet, he is human, something that many of the audio's that I have listened to do not addres those of us not so developed...he is self-deprecating. More than that he is funny. His sense of humor is good enough to make me laugh at 7 in the morning and make me walk into work as if I could take on the world. He does not just tell you that your thoughts became things, but that you have a responsibility for those thoughts. Just believing that and sitting on the couch waiting for a miracle is not going to work. For instance, if you knew that tomorrow would be the best day of your life and you were a fisherman, would you not do everything that could to get fish or would you just sit on the couch and wait for the fish to come? That is pretty strange as he states. Throw a ball to the Universe, it may not seem to make a difference at the time, but you never know until you throw the ball. What about you decide on the one person who will be your soul mate? You know what 20 or 30 people? The Universe knows 30 billion, let it decide. I encourage anyone to listen to Mike, he can make you laugh and feel better about yourself as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opened doors... February 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Mike Dooley has 'opened the door of my mind'...to all things possible..
His boundless enthusiasm and delivery of his subject woke me up and carried me along with it, filling me with excitement at his discoveries, and the truth of them. If everyone practised all Mike Dooley preaches, what an amazing world we would have - for real! I know how my own life has changed since absorbing his principles - and from now on, how much better it will always be!

5.0 out of 5 stars Old knowledge made new for contemporary living February 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Leveraging the Universe..." is a truthful tool for everyday living. "...each objective or conscious being is a magnet who attracts what he thinks. Your mind is always doing this. The trick is to do it purposefully and with forethought." Mike Dooley communitcates this knowledge in a humorous way and gives us tools to incorporate this power into our every day lives. An important contribution to mankind.
