"Mike Dooley's Notes from the Universe have charged my day with absolute joy more times than I can remember."
- Rhonda Byrne, creator and executive producer of The Secret
From the Publisher
If ever there was proof of magic in my life, that I now spend part of every day writing for "the Universe", is it. Not even 4 short years ago, after we closed down the last of the TUT stores and liquidated our remaining inventory, I briefly hit the pavement with my accountant's resume in hand.
Fortunately, no one was hiring (at least not me!), and fortunately again, I had enough money from our T-shirt days to coast awhile. Even more fortunately, I still had a thousand or so people looking forward to receiving my "Monday Morning Motivators" via email each week.
So I decided that as long as I didn't have to work, yet, I'd keep doing the one thing that filled me with the greatest sense of accomplishment and purpose - write. And figure out how to make it pay, later.
Talk about scary. As the months rolled by, there were plenty of nights I tossed, literally in a sweat, thinking "what am I doing with my life? How did I get here? What went wrong? What if I don't make any money at this? What if I have to sell my home? What if I can't find a job, and no one will buy my home? What if? What if? What if...?" And day after day, week after week, month after month, my reserves dwindled and nothing came in.
But I knew a trick. I knew that figuring out "the how's", wasn't really my job, it was the Universe's. I also knew to focus on the end result, the kind of life I wanted, and to get busy turning over every stone, knocking on every door, following every impulse, so that theoretically, at least, the Universe could take care of the details.
Whaaaaa! Has it ever!!! Somehow, during all the knocking and turning and visualizing, I acted on enough hunches and instincts to keep me buoyed with the necessary optimism to press on and not look back. And literally, the next thing I knew, the Adventurers Club was born, a variety of speaking opportunities arose, I produced a major audio program that now sells all over the world, and the Universe began using email. Even today, I look around and can hardly believe the reversal and rise of my good fortune.
I always knew it worked, but the thrill of experiencing it yet again, in spite of my worries, doubts, and frustrations, has been an awesome adventure; one I know everyone deserves and can experience for themselves.
I've learned, once again, that no matter how dark things get, no matter how difficult, if I continue to do my part, the Universe has to do its part - it's the law, and things will turn around.
To the life of your dreams,

Mike Dooley is cool & humble :
"Go on, give it a try. Just open this book to any 'random' page and see what you get".
Basically a daily affirmation book, esoteric/New Age. (I Am)
Good one(p83): "Don't wait for those feelings of excitement, confidence, and expansion that will come when your life suddenly takes off, because your life cannot suddenly take off until you first have those feelings of excitement, confidence, and expectation.
(Heck, if you have to, just pretend. Make believe, fake it. Right now, get up, walk down the hall, smile, wave, wink, pump your fist, and exude all over the place!)"
~ so you see, funny & relational & motivational
