Dooley, already a well-established speaker in his own right, broadened his profile as one of the teachers in the DVD and book phenomenon The Secret . Dooley's audios, first created by his motivational company, Totally Unique Thoughts, have begun to make their way into the mainstream trade publishing arena. In this particular seminar—recorded at a Unity church in Raleigh, N.C.—Dooley challenges listeners to harness the world around them as a force for positive change. Dooley emphasizes the importance of mastering thoughts and beliefs, though he also warns against fixating on self-analysis at the expense of old-fashioned determination. “The only place the ship of your dreams will never find you is sitting at home waiting for it,” he exhorts his audience. Dooley embraces spiritual concepts that fall into New Age categories, but he manages to eschew the ethereal trappings of a guru. Instead, he projects the easygoing stance of a pleasant and engaging 40ish businessman with whom one can easily imagine enjoying a beer or two. (Feb.)
