Everyday I check my emails and can’t wait to see what “The Universe” has to tell me for the day. It’s uncanny and sometimes a little bit freaky just how accurate and relative Mike’s (AKA the Universe) messages are.
A former PriceWaterhouseCoopers international tax consultant, turned entrepreneur, Mike Dooley founded a philosophical Adventurers Club on the Internet that’s now home to over 350,000 members from over 189 countries.
His inspirational books have been published in 23 languages and he was one of the featured teachers in the international phenomenon, The Secret.
Today Mike is perhaps best known for his Notes from the Universe emailings and his New York Times bestseller Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams.
Mike lives what he teaches, traveling internationally speaking on life, dreams and happiness.
For Mike, in the beginning, his search for answers generally centered around the issues of life, death, and the powers of the mind, but within these there were many other topics like time, space, heaven, hell, hypnosis, UFO’s, ghost stories, ESP, the dream state, reincarnation, etc.
He didn’t realize it at the time but my desire to “know” had put me on an inner path of understanding, or better my thinking was beginning to attract like thinking.
Although raised by a church-going Catholic Mike found many of their teachings, rules and rituals contradictory, and inconsistent with the answers he had arrived at intuitively. His thoughts and ideas were influenced by books his mother gave him that had piqued his interest in the powers of the mind over our lives.
After graduating with an Accounting degree Mike joined the most prestigious of the then “Big Eight” accounting firms PWC. Before long he was “selectively transferred” into their exclusive tax department which led to an international “tour of duty” in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. From Riyadh, Mike traveled extensively around the world visiting 17 countries, mostly in Africa, Asia and the Far East.
Real momentum came after he joined talents with his artistic brother and managerial mother, and they launched from scratch, TUT, Totally Unique T-shirts. One million T-shirts later, they decided it was time to reach in new directions.
At that point, Mike recorded his first audio program, “Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living Your Dreams,” which has been a perennial best-seller since its release in 2001.
To date, a quarter million CD sets have been sold and in 2009 Atria/Beyond Words teamed up to release the book edition, which debuted on the New York Times bestseller list.
Since, Mike has spoken to audiences in 20 countries, on 6 continents, before tens of thousands of people and created one of my favourite subscriptions“Notes from the Universe,” which is sent out 5 days a week to over 350,000 people in 189 countries.
Mike was featured in the bestselling book and DVD The Secret,
He has published a total of 7 books, some of which have been published into 21 languages, as well as 4 audio programs, and several DVD’s.
To this day Mike acknowledges that he is still a student, but also his own teacher. He begun to realize that as much as he enjoyed thinking and living his thoughts, he also enjoyed sharing them too… and learning from others.
I’ve never been a “reader”. Since attending college I’ve probably averaged only 1-2 new books a year. So it’s ironic that over my life, several books, or authors, have helped define my own thoughts, and therefore my life, in the most profound ways. ~ MIKE DOOLEY
