Tuesday Tips: 17 Serendipitous Suggestions

eye

Welcome to this week's edition of Tuesday Tips, a collection of the best-feeling ideas in the world. You don't have to actually do anything to apply these suggestions to your own life, you only have to consider them with an open mind. Then whenever you need a little nudge in the right direction, the most resonant thoughts will be there to help you.

Doing

1. Sit up straight.
Push your shoulders back, tighten your core and be the boss that you are. The flow can't get through very easily when you're hunched over.

2. Fill your tank.
Pay attention. When you start noticing your vibration drop, you'll notice it reflected in all of your reality. Your gas tank will be low. You'll need to go grocery shopping. Your home will be messy. You'll be tired. Even if you don't want to deal with all the lack, even if you start getting nervous about how to pay for everything, just FILL YOUR TANK. Buy the groceries. Clean the house. Keep the momentum going. Don't wait to run out of gas before you tend to your mood.

3. Stop trying too hard.
Let it come to you. Give up. Let go. If there is something you want to happen in this moment, stop thinking about it by counting in your head.

4. Tell a different story.
Listen to what you're saying, in your thoughts or out loud. Are you telling it how it is, or how you want it to be?

5. Say yes.
Then look for evidence that saying yes will pay off. Try it as a game. Say yes to something you wouldn't normally say yes to, then be on the lookout for surprisingly awesome situations. For more inspiration, watch Yes Man!

6. Get life design tips from other people.
Emma Wilson asks the SoLD group, "what is the most valuable lesson you have learned this week?"

Thinking

7. Program your thoughts.
Make it easier to think the thoughts you want to think by taking time each day to write down the thoughts you want to be thinking. I like to think of lifestreaming as my programming language. It's my source code—the code I use to talk to source energy.

8. Think of the best praise and highest compliment you've ever received.
Alyssa reminds us in the School of Life Design group that praise is especially important when we have trouble believing in ourselves.

9. What's the most memorable piece of advice you've ever received?
If it's still with you, it's probably still relevant. I always remember my dad telling me "pay attention!" which I now realize to be integral to maintaining my mood. And every time I get stressed out, I hear him saying "relax!" What words have always stayed with you?

10. Aim to count to 10,000 every day.
Your ability to focus on counting is a litmus test of how much your thoughts are controlling you. If you can count to 10,000 in a day, I promise it will be the best day of your life! Apparently the founder of Second Life tries to count to 10,000 every day too.

Feeling

11. Don't make a decision if you're feeling bad.
Often people will ask you to do things when you aren't in the best mood. Instead of answering "no" on the spot, just tell them you'll think about it. Then go get in a good mood and the right decision will come to you.

12. Don't feel bad for wanting what you want.
Let yourself have it. Don't deny your Self. Even if you don't think you should have it, go for it. Saying yes to your most exciting desires is how to walk your optimal path.

13. Project certainty and others will listen.
When you know what you want with 100% certainty, don't ask someone if it's a good idea or if they want to do it. TELL THEM what you are doing and they'll be more likely to join. When you ask someone "do you want to do this?" you're saying, "am I sure I want to do this?"

14. Stop feeling paranoid by understanding that you can change the past.
You never have to worry if you blew out the candle or turned off the stove if you can change the past by changing your present.

Being

15. Be impulsive.
Take risks and trust your gut. If you're nervous or scared, remember anxiety is excitement with the brakes on! As Bashar says, "If you always act on the thing that contains the most excitement at every given moment to the best of your ability with zero expectation as to what the outcome ought to be, you will be walking the optimal path no matter how it looks."

16. Lighten up.
None of this is serious. We're just here to have fun. Smile, take a deep breath and say "fuck it!"

17. Know that everything is working out for everyone.
Love actually is all around!

    I LOVE “Fill your tank”. That is so true, and coincidentally realized that I’ve been feeling a bit disconnected and distracted the past few days, and guess what — my tank was low and my fridge was full of old leftovers. I filled my tank yesterday and cleaned the bird crap off my windshield and immediately felt a little more focused.
    So often we forget how much our basic surroundings and upkeep of things affect us…thank you for the serendipitous reminder!

    Hi Tracy! Not only do our basic surroundings affect us, but we are creating them. The only reason they are the way they are is because it’s the way -we- are. So sometimes taking a little action is enough to refocus like you said. We went grocery shopping today and it feels soooo good to get it done before we run out of food!

    Plus, cold beer in the fridge has got to be my favorite reflection of myself ;]

    P.S. I’ve been reading your site and I love it! I love the tilt concept!
