Wisdom Nuggets from Mike Dooley
Here are three nuggets of wisdom from Mike Dooley’s Playing the Matrix workshop in Salt Lake last weekend:
1. Leverage details but don’t attach to them
Much of Mike’s material encourages deliberate creators to focus on specific details of the end result we’re manifesting.
But he makes an important distinction in that we don’t focus on those details in order to create those particular results. Rather we just use them to get in the feeling of what we want. That’s the only way those details are helpful.
In Mike’s words, “The details are visualized to get you excited about your end results, not to be your end results.”
If we get hung up on a particular job, or person, or weight, that’s when the details don’t serve us. But we can imagine those details since they’re often helpful for creating the feeling state of what we want. Just don’t lose sight of the big picture.
2. Things will still look weird
Evidence of progress toward our success is often easy to miss. Mike specifically said, “… the miracles of progress are usually invisible.”
So you can’t really say, “It isn’t happening.” Because just like on a cross country road trip – you could be 24 hours away from your final destination, and things could still look really weird. Doesn’t mean you’re not almost there.
So don’t worry if things aren’t looking like you thought they would. It doesn’t mean you’re not making progress.
3. Why believe in limiting beliefs?
That wasn’t exactly the way Mike said it, but it was clear he does not invest much (if any) time exploring and resolving internal limiting beliefs.
Instead Mike believes that by taking action you automatically navigate around limiting beliefs.
I sure haven’t practiced that personally, but I’m willing to play with that idea!
There’s actually lots more to share with you, but I’ll save it for later!

In the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts on anything here that sparks your interest!
