Welcome to Tuesday Tips, a weekly gathering of positive thoughts for your collection. This week I have some notable quotables helping me keep my head above water. I may have jumped in the deep end, but I’m getting a great swimming lesson!
1. “I dont do a post now unless I’m worried about what people will think about me.”
Advice from James Altucher to Kamal Ravikant in Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It. Lately every time I post another article before telling Kelly, she gasps. She’s all, “Omg, what did you do now?!” That’s how I know I’m getting better at writing.
2. “I know attention creates, so my #1 intention is to pay attention to what I want more of.” ~ Kelly Cree
Your most valuable resource isn’t money, it’s your attention. When you PAY attention, you’re giving value to. You’re literally investing in it, making it part of your portfolio. If you want stock in it, keep thinking about it. Otherwise think about something else. From now on, I will only give my attention to funny jokes, cute animals, pretty girls, and cold hard cash.
3. Instead of thinking, say a mantra to yourself over and over and over.
Using a mantra creates a channel in your mind for the rest of your thoughts to follow. Try one of these:
- It’s working!
- I live the magick life.
- I have plenty.
- I know I’m free.
- I love and accept myself exactly the way I am.
- I love my now exactly the way it is.
- I love myself.
4. “Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.” ~ Kahlil Gibran
Your incredible pain is creating incredible joy. It’s all part of the process. Now click the link to read the rest of that poem because it will make your day!
5. “Everything happens for me, not to me.” ~ Byron Katie
Enjoy the contrast—that’s how you get out of it. Only contrast helps you know what you want! It’s pulling your desires through you. Bless the contrast you experience, because it’s creating the solution you desire. Every single time I remember, “Oh yeah, I’m supposed to like the hard times,” I find a way to make peace and the situation resolves itself.
Here’s a great technique: “Try the following exercise first with your eyes open & then repeat it with your eyes closed. Take a deep breath, hold it and notice the sensations as your heart beats three times, relax & breath out — repeat 3X. Breathe in and out slowly to a count of 4, as you do so notice how your body feels — relaxed & warm.”
7. “There is only one question in Life that is truly important: How does what I am doing right now serve the agenda of my Soul?” ~ Neal Donald Walsch
The soul likes laughing and loving and playing, so let’s go!

Welcome to Tuesday Tips, the ultimate positive thinking resource. This week I’m keeping it simple. The synopsis? Say yes, take risks, you’re already awesome, the money’s on the way, stop thinking, give joy, say I love you, and meditate to find all the answers. Easy!
1. Say yes.
Saying yes has never not worked out in my favor.
2. Take risks.
“If you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will learn to be wise.” ~ Ryan Plesko
3. Say you’re awesome and you’ll do something awesome.
My 9-year-old friend Janie was going around declaring “I’m awesome!” “Heck yeah you are!” I agreed with her. A few minutes later she organized an enormous DVD collection and cleared out a cubby for me to use as a desk when I’m at her house. It was truly awesome. Not only that, but a couple days earlier her mom had expressed her desire of having her DVD collection organized. Everyone got something they wanted, and Janie continues to be awesome.
4. Think of money as a girl.
If you’re good at relationships, you can apply what you know to money. Don’t chase it! Let it come to you!
5. Change your perspective on wealth.
“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” ~ Epictetus
6. If you can’t think something nice, don’t think anything at all.
Count in your head, meditate, or go to sleep.
7. Make your mission to GIVE joy.
Brian Johnson advises, “Imagine a life in which we seek to GIVE joy. A life in which we enter relationships to GIVE joy. A life in which we work to GIVE joy.”
8. Just say I love you.
Even if it’s just in your head. Say it to everything! It’ll kill you to do it to the stuff you don’t like, but if you can love what you don’t like, nothing can ever hurt you! And say I love you to all the unsung heroes in your reality: your dashboard widgets, your floorboards, your printer, your bed. The texture of your walls, the used napkin from lunch, your cat purring. All of it wants love, and you have an infinite supply.
9. Meditate, then ask your creative self for a solution.
Jon Ray reminded me of this one. David Lynch does this too. Quiet your mind and ask for the solution to come to you. As soon as you relax, it’ll be right in front of you.

Welcome to Tuesday Tips, a weekly guide to living the magick life. Take a deep breath and let go of your worries, because every little thing is going to be all right. Trust that the universe is on your side and it is!
1. Notice miracles.
Jamie Windsong Kasper posts on Facebook, “My world is filled with miracles. I think all of our lives are it is just a matter of us taking notice. And miracles, they like to be appreciated like every being on the planet.” The whole idea of appreciating miracles as beings makes my heart swell!
2. Rewrite your about page.
I recommend doing this as often as you can. Laura Roeder suggested in her weekly newsletter The Dash, “Write a letter to your ideal customer. Tell them what you want them to know about you, and your business. Tell them how excited you are about helping them, and what inspired you to start the business.” Gala Darling also has some excellent ideas for keeping your brand fresh in Get It, Girl: 10 Ways To Make The Most Of Any Workshop Or Event!
3. The words “I am” matter A LOT!
Oprah gets it! Check out this video on her favorite philosophy, “You become what you believe.” Try it yourself—fill in the blank with whatever you want to be true: “I am __________.” Make that your mantra of the day and watch it materialize. In the video Oprah quotes Pastor Joel Osteen: “Whatever follows ‘I am’ is going to come looking for you.” DEEP. (And much thanks to Aislinn in the School of Life Design group for pointing out this gem!)
4. Laugh for no reason!
This feels incredible! You’ll also feel extremely silly at first, but IT WORKS! Try it, I promise you’ll love it.
5. Release your stress.
In The Power of Now, Eckart Tolle teaches us, “Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there,’ or being in the present but wanting to be in the future.” Do whatever you can to be happy exactly where you are and you’ll feel less and less stressed. Try the mantra, “I’m so happy with what I have” or “It’s already the way I want it to be” or “I’m at peace with what is.”
6. Become what you want, right now.
Fill in the blank with whatever you want: I am ______________.
And then LAUGH!!!!
