7 Reasons You Must Check Out “Notes From The Universe”

Published

on

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.

 

***Final Note***

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?

    I’ve been a subscriber of ‘Notes From The Universe’ for a while now. My favourite note I ever got was:

    “When you realize that by changing your perspective, big things can be seen as little things, it becomes much harder to worry about anything.”

    Wisdom is the principal thing…Nothing happens by accident. An idea popped into my head and I started searching for something else on the internet but was magically led to your powerful information that just happened to answer to my question. So I took that as a clue or a note from the universe that I need to be connected so that I can start receiving more Notes From The Universe. I am Super excited!!!

    Blessings

    Have to say, I was a bit suspicious about these notes. Never heard of them before, but after reading your article few times I just.. could not resist. You described them so very emotional and helpful that I just typed in yahoo search and found them. Signed up immediately and was anticipating to see my very first not which, of course, was very weird. Like very much. The next morning I received another one, more clear, short and basically the exact answer on my inner struggles. That was fascinating and I felt that little connection!

    Thing is, and I would like to ask you a question if you don’t mind. Since I got my first note I told my sister about it, as I was pretty sure she would love and adore it! Well, you guessed it, she signed up as well right after I sent her the link. We share many thngs to each other, and I was just curious what notes she may find in her mail box and they were exactly like mine. For a few days we have the exact same notes, word by word, only our names are the difference.

    It may not be a matter of concern, however what is the point to fullfill those little fields about your material thing you desire and goal you want to achieve, and as you said, you have subscribed from two different emails to get more wisdom from the notes. So my question is, are we all get the exact same notes, or are they might be different?

    Thank you for entertaining article, Tim, it was captivating and fun read, much love and my gratitude, my friend!

      Toño thanks for having the faith to check out the notes. I have got plenty of people to sign up to them and none of us have ever received the same notes on the same day. It might be because you both signed up on the same day. Either way, it’s no about whether they are tailored to your situation, it’s more about the notes and wisdom themselves. Focus on the advice you get from them and not what other people are getting or their results.

      Hope that insight helps Toño and thanks for reading as always!

        Yes, I think you are right – it is better focus on the message of knowledge we perceive from this notes rather than message others may get.

        Perhaps, my sister and I have similar souls thus we have the same message to help us on our journey 🙂

        Thank you!

    Wow! I saw this post after reading my daily note from the Universe. Talk about perfect timing! I am in LOVE with Mike Dooley’s teachings and am currently involved in a weekly Infinite Possibilities course. Earlier this year, I published an article about How The Universe Helped Me to Become Ms. Corporate America.

    I have to agree with you 200%. The notes are life-changing!

5 Ways to Remain Undefeated In Life and Cherish Each Moment Successfully

Published

how to dominate life
Image Credit: Unsplash

Life is an amalgamation of existence and survival. It often replicates Pandora’s box. When we talk about existence, it relates to one’s identity. When we talk about survival, stories of struggles, success, victories, and defeats come into the panorama. Survival defines the continuation of existence.

The concept of existence makes us curious about, “who am I”?  Whereas, instincts of survival raise queries about “how to know who I am”? This journey from Who to How comprises several halts and platforms to make life interesting and beautiful.

Let’s Have a Look at the Surroundings

Have you ever seen a bird building its nest? It appears beautiful yet simple, right? Stop and think about the efforts they have put behind its construction. They collect sticks, twigs, yarn, grass, leaves, mud, and many other things. They prove to be skilled architects of nature. This is one of their necessities to survive.

When the eggs hatched, the baby birds come into existence and struggle to survive in the external environment. They adapt and try to fly. They fall and get scared but never give up because they know this is vital for their survival. Then a day comes when they fly higher and soar in the sky.

Why doesn’t their survival seem complicated to us? Why don’t they have any emotional and mental breakdowns? Human beings have evolved and are privileged to experience emotions.

What Makes Life Interesting and Brings Meaning to Your Existence?

There are 3 things that brings mean to your existence: Desire, Determination and Struggle.

Desire

Human beings have desire to achieve things. Sometimes desires become the cause of one’s misery, but desires can also be the driving force which let you manifest your highest potential. Having desires is important. It motivates us to forge ahead towards victory. It gives us a reason to work and strive for more.

But desire should not dominate you, and you should not depend on it to be happy. Your willpower and attitude determine your approach towards its fulfilment.Many times we don’t get the desired results. Sometimes it is better than what we thought, and sometimes it’s the opposite. A wise person neither gets swayed away with the victory nor disheartened with failure.

Determination

If the desire is the force, then determination is the velocity. Their product gives us the power to become courageous and fight like an invincible spirit. The determination provides a direction and illuminates your way to success. Hence, determined, every time you get a setback in life. When life throws curve balls, apply the technique of self-motivation and wisdom.

Struggle

When we do not achieve a set goal, we consider ourselves failures. When life doesn’t seem easy, when things turn out to be contrary or opposite of our expectations, we define the situation as tough and full of struggles.

The real struggle in life is not with the situation but with ourselves. If you succeed to win over the lowest state of your mind, your weaknesses, you win half of the battle. We win the other half with courage, hope, and a never give up attitude.

Winning is important, but to never get defeated is something even more important. If you remain undefeated no matter what, that’s a success.

Here are 5 Ways to Remain Undefeated:

1. Build a Habit of Reading and Self-Motivation

In the moment of delusion and doubt, books prove to be a guiding force and a loyal companion, capable of empowering and motivating you. When we are stuck in a situation and not able to figure anything out, reading an article, blog, book or magazine has been proven to be a saviour.

A habit of reading helps you to learn and grow. It’s like self-help pills. You keep yourself motivated. Whenever doubt comes, you seek the writings of ancient wisdom, derive its meaning according to you and keep yourself in a high life state.

2. Thinking and Introspection

Thinking is an art, and introspection is the tool to perform this art. When we spend time with the inner self, we contemplate many things. When we dwell in the dialogue with ourself, we find answers to many questions, and our vision becomes more explicit.

We know ourselves. We don’t get affected by people’s criticism or applause. We consistently focus on our thoughts and keep moving forward along the chosen path, and that is the key to achieve your goal.

3. Seek Inspiration from a Mentor

A mentor is someone who guides you throughout and enables you to achieve success in your life. A mentor is a source of inspiration. A mentor can be anyone; a teacher, a friend, your parents, grandparents, or even some celebrity. When you get down and gloomy, look at your mentor and many deadlocks of your life open automatically.

4. Connect Yourself to Spirituality

Spirituality is the way of living one’s life unaffected by worldly affairs. When we open the gate to eternity, we leave behind our footprints. It will not only guide others but also paves their way to a peaceful life.

Practicing Yoga brings you closer to spirituality and meditation and helps with mental health. Hence, Yoga and meditation have the quality of a lotus flower. No matter what condition you are going through, you will bloom.

It calms your mind, relaxes your body, and improves your concentration. Your stress levels reduce and you achieve the hormonal balance your body and mind is looking for. This balance boosts your confidence and your belief system.It is a capsule for the overall development of your personality and inculcating this habit in our daily routine takes us to a higher level of success.

5. Be Courageous and Never Get Defeated

Courage is a virtue which enables us to make our dreams come true. To keep fighting the battle of life, you must have courage. It helps you to overcome your fear. When you win over your phobias, you increase your potential. You never get defeated, and that is an epic victory one can report.

In the weakest of your moments, when life seems unfair and ruthless, calm down, take a deep breath, close your eyes, and talk to yourself. Pay gratitude for whatever you have. You will find the meaning of your existence and that ethos to survive will never let you get defeated. You will triumph.

3 Ways to Rethink Motivation in a Busy World

Published

on

motivation

I’ve been thinking a lot about the nature of motivation recently. For me, motivation comes at different points during the day. I tend to be most motivated first thing in the morning. I’m not a night owl by any means, but sometimes I wish I could be. Other people are hopeless in the mornings, but they can stay up until the wee hours working on a project that inspires them.

Unfortunately, sometimes motivation doesn’t strike when you need it to. Sometimes you’re not able to arrange your day to align with specific spikes in motivation, and you’re forced to find opportunities to be productive at the corners of the day.

Below, are several ways you can set yourself up for victory, despite a busy schedule or an inability to find the right time to feel motivated:

1. Tee yourself up for a motivation session

I’m not much of a golfer, so the fact that I’m using a golf phrase to preface this tip probably doesn’t make sense. But the point is that sometimes you have to make it easy for yourself to succeed when it’s time to make a leap. You can break a task down into its component parts, and pretty soon it doesn’t seem so difficult.

That’s what motivation is about sometimes. You can take that first step towards getting things progressed. You can set up everything so you just have to jump in with both feet first thing when you have the energy. Sometimes this means creating a to do list for yourself the night before to start tackling first thing in the morning.

Sometimes it can mean drafting an email or creating a template for a phone conversation that you’re planning to have first thing the next day. Whatever you can do to get your head right and set up the right incentives for you to take that swing the very next day when you’re feeling prepared, the better off you will be. Try it next time you’re feeling tired. Take 10 minutes to tee up your next move.

“Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.” – Les Brown

2. Fire, then aim

Unfortunately, sometimes teeing up a solution isn’t going far enough. What really works best is to put your head down and try to at least make a start at that “thing” you want to accomplish, that product you want to create, or that goal you want to reach. This can mean putting pen to paper, picking up the phone, typing out that email, or asking for that advice.

Do something, do anything. Whatever it takes, force yourself to make a minuscule action to move the ball forward. If you had a gun to your head or you were forced to do something to avoid losing everything in one moment, what would you do?

Perhaps this is a bit drastic, but by building a sense of urgency in the moment, even when it’s the last thing you want to do, you can find a deep source of motivation within you and set yourself up to tweak your efforts the next day.

Too often you’re overwhelmed and frozen into inaction when you reach for a large goal. This is the point of the “fire, then aim” approach.

3. Rid yourself of self doubt

One of the best ways to set yourself up for victory in the long run is to build your self confidence. If you truly believe in yourself, you will find the motivation to persist and persevere.

If you truly have faith in yourself and your ability to deliver what you set out to deliver, you can do it. The world will align to your dreams. But this won’t happen if you let yourself be talked down by self-doubt and worry about what others will think.

“The moment you feel yourself hesitate on something you know you should do, count 5-4-3-2-1 to activate your prefrontal cortex and interrupt the habit of overthinking, self-doubt, and fear.” – Mel Robbins

Some worry and concern is rational and even important, but for the most part, fear will only hinder your progress. Get the negative voices out of your head by tapping into the inner ego and reminding yourself that you can accomplish what you set out to accomplish.

If you put your mind to something, and you are stubborn in your resistance to listening to other people’s’ opinions of what you do, then you will be hard pressed to not succeed.

The hardest part is the start. Finding ways to make that start even a little bit less painful can make the time that it takes to create something amazing all that much easier.

A Step by Step Process That Will Help You Make the Impossible, Possible

Published

make it happen

We have all been there, looking at something and wishing we had it. The girl, the car, the money, the family, the lifestyle…but then we tell ourselves “Yeah, but that’s not me”. The people who get that are cut from a different cloth and we keep telling ourselves that until it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. We waste the wings we got believing the entire time that we can’t fly and that it’s impossible for us. We don’t even see our wings most of the time. (more…)

(Part 2) Conquering the Impossible Space Between Where You Are Now and Where You Want to Be

Published

on

risk taking

I wrote a blog post based on a mini-series I did for my Subscribers on the Achieve the Impossible App and have packaged it up in two parts to share here. If you missed Part One, quick click here and have a read over that first before reading any further!

One of the first obstacles we’re going to face on this journey towards risk is one that often strikes a damaging blow to our pride and can sometimes take us to our knees. As you embark on this journey, I can almost guarantee that we will take a wrong turn from time to time, we will read the map wrong (I’ll take the hit, I’m the navigator – sorry!) which will send us off course.

When you’ve taken a wrong turn driving, what is your first thought? DAMN IT. (Yep, me too!) What’s your second thought? Is it ‘ahh, I’ve stuffed up. I’m gonna just pull over and sit here until either the roads and maps magically change in my favor or someone comes to rescue me?’ Or do we think ‘Ok, what’s the quickest way to get back on my path?’

Mistakes Will Happen

When we stuff up, make a mistake, choose the wrong software, tell the wrong people or say the wrong thing, we don’t just pack up our dreams and hide. NO. We pick ourselves back up. We face the right direction (or what we believe is the right direction) and we MOVE FORWARD.

I don’t care if you start by walking one ginger step at a time, just start! Those small steps gain momentum and eventually lead to a jog, then before you know it, you’re back running!

Mistakes aren’t meant to end us, they are there to redirect us. Anytime you embark on an unknown journey you’re going to make mistakes.How you respond is the only thing I want you to focus on. Respond with reflection, movement and momentum in the direction of your dreams.

On our journey, we’re going to make mistakes and take wrong turns from time to time, but we choose to pick ourselves back up, and get back on that journey! We’re not staying stuck, we’re ‘running to risk’! As we get back on this journey, we’re going to need to make a decision to take action and invest in risk.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie

Sounds like I’m about to write a message on Warren Buffett’s worst nightmare. But that’s not the risk I’m talking about and it’s not the investing I’m talking about. Sleep tight, Warren. This risk I’m talking about is the thing that stands between you and your dream. The thing that you’ve told yourself is too strong, too powerful and too insurmountable to climb.

It’s often the case that the risk we perceive in our own minds is actually far greater than it truly is in reality. I remember as a child, visiting a museum and being fascinated by a scary looking dinosaur down the other side of the room. It looked ferocious and intimidating from across the room, and as I walked closer and closer, the dinosaur, through the magic of perspective, got bigger and bigger.

That’s where I feel we are at right now on our journey towards risk. We’ve identified the risk standing between us and our dreams, and we’re taking the tentative first steps towards it. As we step closer and closer to risk, it will look bigger. You’ll start to compare the size of it to you, and don’t be surprised if it grows each step you take. But, have faith.

The closer I got to the dinosaur, the bigger it became. I had a choice to let fear or faith determine my next steps. I continued walking step by step towards the prehistoric creature. Then something strange happened.

Yes, the closer I got to the creature, the bigger it became. But then something else came into the picture. The closer I got, the more detail I was noticing. What I thought were bone-crunching teeth were actually a matte white plastic, what I thought was impenetrable skin was old flaking greeny-brown paint. Those eyes that glared at you from across the room, were now nothing but big marble sized spheres of glass.

When we step towards fear, yes it gets bigger – but as we invest in faith and continue to live our lives in the direction of our dreams, we expose the master of risk…FEAR.

False

Evidence

Appearing

Real

Invest in those extra steps this week as you get closer to risk to point out the finer details, you’re going to realise it’s not as scary as it once seemed. Those steps aren’t always going to come easy though, because the journey towards risk is an interesting one.

There’ll be times when you’re pumped full of Adrenalin, bashing down every obstacle that comes your way. There will be times where you’re cruising on a nice downhill slope, enjoying the scenery and wondering why it took you this long to convince yourself to get here!

Then there’ll be times when things aren’t easy. Just like my climb this evening up a little mountain by my home on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. I started out full of energy, pumped for the adventure ahead, then five minutes into the usually very achievable rocky steps, my legs started really feeling it.

“You’ll never know your strength until you’ve faced your struggles.”

The Adrenalin gave way to frustration, to fear and to my quickly draining self-belief in my fitness. I continued one painful step at a time. I wasn’t going the pace I normally would, but knew this mountain could be conquered one slow step at a time.

As I slowly neared the end of the steps, my legs were burning, my heart pounding and my mindset weakening. Two quiet words burst through my pain…

Stay strong

I’m pretty sure I’ve never said this going up the mountain before, but it seemed fitting. As I climbed one step at a time, ‘stay strong’ became my repeated mantra. After the season of pain and intentional mindset building, I reached the summit of the mountain and cruised my way back down.

There is such an incredibly untapped power within our self-belief and mindset, which shapes our self-talk. On your journey towards your risk, I can almost guarantee you’ll be faced with steps that seem too difficult, too challenging, too much to conquer.

Remember…’stay strong’. You’re on this path for a reason – you’re capable of completing it. You’ve come this far, see it through. Your ‘impossible’ dream is counting on you to conquer fear and run to risk!
