Notes From The Universe has become a phenomenal success with over 700,000 subscribers to these daily emails of wisdom. Each note is written by Mike Dooley from the perspective of the universe. On a daily basis, the universe sends you no more than ten sentences of an idea for you to think about.
These short little notes have been a real spark for me in my life since I discovered them over a year ago through Joel Browns Podcast interview with Mike. They get me to think consciously every day about what I am doing and the way I am thinking about major challenges.
It’s not difficult in life to have a whole day where you get no positive reinforcement and no positive outside influence. What Notes From The Universe will do for you is become the thing every day that creates a small amount of positivity for you, especially if you’re currently lacking in good vibes.
It’s this very idea that fuels people to read Addicted2Success on a regular basis to get the strategies that are not always available through traditional media outlets.
Mike Dooley has been asked many times why he created Notes From The Universe, and I think the quote that sums it up best is “thoughts become things…choose the good ones!”
The seven reasons you should check out Notes From The Universe are:
1. The notes lift your day
Life has many up’s and downs. Since receiving Note’s From The Universe regularly I have found that I always have a reason to smile and believe in myself. You have to make it a must to surround yourself with powerful, positive ideas that can catapult you towards success.
Even on the lowest of lowest days, you can always count on receiving a ten-second email from the Notes From The Universe creator Mike, to consciously make you mindful of everything in life that is going in your favor. It’s as if someone is secretly watching over you and writing these notes even though there is no scientific evidence to prove that theory…haha. I like to believe it none the less ☺
2. The ability to share something valuable with someone else
Once I started getting the benefits from the Notes From The Universe I asked myself the question “how would these notes make other people feel?” I then decided to try this idea out by showing two of my work colleagues that were going through a difficult time.
After signing up, both of them began seeing the importance of these notes and thanked me for lifting their day and making their life just that little bit better.
If you have been lying to yourself and thinking that you don’t have time to give to other people, then you now have a way to abolish this myth by sharing Notes From The Universe with people you know.
“Sometimes an idea as simple as a ten-sentence email is enough to help even the loneliest person realise the lies they have been telling themselves”
3. You will get a lot of wisdom
Finding wisdom through written words can be a challenge. Signing up for Notes From The Universe is a way to get a new perspective on the entire concept of wisdom. Before reading the notes, I thought I knew what wisdom was – it turns out I didn’t.
The way that each note cuts through your existing belief systems and spreads like a virus through your mind will blow you away.
The notes challenge everything you have ever thought, and they will plant seeds inside of you that you can unlock at any point in the future. Every time you become torn inside when making a decision, try reading one of the notes to see if you still think the same afterward.
4. Your confidence will be built up or restored
We all ask ourselves the question “are we enough” once in a while through many different thought patterns. When we feel we are not enough or don’t have the resources to succeed, our mind defaults into thoughts that take away our confidence.
Notes From The Universe help to reinforce your confidence and build you up. The notes are like a friend that is hardwired to want nothing else than for you to succeed at your dream. As your confidence increases from every note, you will find yourself pushing through fears that you have avoided for a long time.
5. Interesting ideas you haven’t thought of
Thanks to the Internet there aren’t too many ideas that haven’t been thought of in some way before. What you will find astounding about Notes From The Universe is that you will come across ideas that you have never heard of before.
You will be exposed to concepts that could easily be from a thousand years ago. You will learn in a matter of seconds, ideas that will be the building blocks to your success. I have had some horrific situations occur over the last twelve months, and I have found these notes to offer some rationale for the way I have been thinking.
Negative events are often reframed in some of the notes to be a must have part of the journey. You are also reminded of your intuition regularly, and you will begin to see its importance as the weeks go by.
6. Amazing writing style
If you like very different writing styles that will draw you in and become an addiction, then Notes From The Universe is for you.
The way some of the emails are written is seriously cool. Sometimes the writing style is so left of center that you have to read the notes twice to understand fully what the note is attempting to tell you. There is plenty of humor and energy too in each note which makes them even more contagious.
7. You feel like someone is guiding you
Never before in life will you feel so guided once you begin reading each note from the universe. It’s hard for me to describe the feeling and the only suggestion I can give you is to try it for yourself and see what I mean.
The notes are highly personal and not too specific so you can give meaning to the message any way you want. If you’re like me and not religious, then the notes will tap into your spiritual side and help you to seek clarity in your life.
I’ll be honest; I don’t think I had much of a spiritual side until I started reading Notes From The Universe. I would love you to have a similar experience.
I am not one to be superstitious. Having said that, the timing of each note that I read seems always to align with something that happened that day. For example, I had a note about breakups on the day I was picking up the pieces from a broken heart. How does that happen? I have no idea.
Don’t get too caught up in the wah wah, woo woo of what I have written about Notes From The Universe, and just give them a try. Before I forget, I have to say thank you to Joel Brown for introducing me to Notes From The Universe…many thanks mate!
Lastly, I have a confession. I signed up to Notes From The Universe from two different email addresses so I could get double the wisdom. What can I say; I’m a wannabe fast learner that is obsessed with success. You can’t blame me, can you?

20 Science-Backed Ways to Stay Motivated (Infographic)
Motivation is something we all strive to have, but can also be one of those feelings that’s hard to keep. Whether we’re attempting to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated in our role at work, sometimes that motivation just isn’t there. You feel motivated for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, keep yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy at the start, then feel yourself slowly losing that inspiration. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. (more…)

8 Things You Can Do Right Now to Get Your Motivation Back
Welcome to our new normal. A time in our lives that a year ago we certainly didn’t see coming that most of us probably wouldn’t have chosen for ourselves; but here we are. As the days away from each other carry on and more and more bad news comes our way, it’s easy to lose your motivation and waste energy doing things that aren’t helpful like worrying and fighting with people on the internet instead.
Nearly half of Americans report the coronavirus crisis is harming their mental health, according to the Washington Post. While many of us had routines set up to deal with stress in the past, the stress we are facing during this time is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. It’s easy to find yourself in a downward spiral, and that’s the most challenging time to stop the momentum and turn things around. If that’s the case, keep it simple and start to reach for little things to help you feel better and climb your way out.
Here’s a reminder of a few simple things you can do right now to start getting positive momentum going your way:
1. Find someone who was in a similar place and made it to the other side
Whether you’ve been unmotivated to workout, eat healthy, make sales calls or simply do anything, you can find someone who has been there and made it to the other side. Look up some great TED talks, go on YouTube and look up people that motivate you, google them to find their websites. There are short speeches and much longer talks all over the internet, you just need to find someone who you relate to that speaks to you.
2. Do something that you love
When we’re unmotivated, it’s easy to get out of the habit of doing what we love. Sometimes just getting out of bed or away from the tv feels like a chore. Think back to a time in your life when you felt great – what were you doing? What do you absolutely love to do that if you had the time, you would do all day and not realize any time had passed at all?
Figure out a way to do whatever that is, or a modified version of it if it is something that you aren’t able to do at the present time. Spending time doing what you love will get your mind off of anything that is wrong and allow you to find inspiration.
3. Don’t overcomplicate it
Keep it simple. When we’re stuck in a rut, we’ll give ourselves every excuse to not do something. Say you’ve gained some weight; you might tell yourself you need to find the perfect trainer and wait until you have time to cook your meals from scratch each night before you do anything else. Stop trying to overcomplicate it and keep it simple by finding one thing you can do right now, however small that may be. You don’t have to wait until the timing is perfect and the stars align for you to start moving in the direction you want to go.
4. Get up and get moving
This is probably the last thing you want to do right now, but once you are up and moving, your blood will start flowing. The hardest part is getting started. Day one, get up and do anything to get moving. This is the hardest day if you haven’t in a while because getting up is really the hardest part. Day two, do a little more. Once you start, you’ll build momentum and get back in the habit.
5. Reset your focus
It’s so easy for worry to set in and for our minds to wander to places of what we can’t control. This is not motivating or helpful and we always have a choice to redirect our attention. There is always something we can do right where we are, so bring your focus to the solution instead of the problem and figure out the next step of what you can do.
One step at a time. Step one, take your attention away from what you can’t control and what you can’t do. Step two, ask yourself questions like “What can I do?” and see what comes to mind. Follow through with the answers you find.
6. Listen to your favorite music
Not much can lift our spirits and put us into a positive vibration more than our favorite music. Feel free to sing along. Find a song that pumps you up and make that your theme song. Put it on anytime you feel down or unmotivated.
7. Expand your knowledge
“In times of change, the learners will inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” Quote by Eric Hoffer. In times of change, there is great loss but also great opportunity. Continually learning opens you to new opportunities and leads you to paths you may not have otherwise found.
If you’re already a meditator and got away from it, take some time to come back to it. If you’ve never tried, it can be as easy as setting a timer for five minutes (or less, feel free to start with one or two minutes) and focusing on your breath. Listen to the inhalations and exhalations. Silently say to yourself “in” as you inhale and “out” as you exhale. Even taking a few minutes to do this can help you to calm down and allow your mind to refocus.
When we’re unmotivated, our momentum starts moving in the other direction. Slow down that momentum by trying one of the ideas above. Once you’ve slowed down the momentum, get it moving in the right direction and you’ll be well on your way.

How many times have you heard the questions: “What drives you” or “What excites you?” These questions may come from well-meaning people but they make one problematic assumption – Our motivation depends on something external. As a result, instead of actively building structures that motivate, we find ourselves aimlessly looking for some outside factors that will motivate us. Instead of asking: “What motivates me?” We should be asking, what am I doing to remain motivated? The answer to this question lies in the doing, not motivation itself. (more…)
