Do You Use Negative Attention-Getting Techniques?

One sure way to get attention (and we all like getting attention) is to talk about your problems, how bad things are, how you've been mistreated, how unfair the world is, how inept your associate is, that you can't get good help, and other negative things.

However, there is a very high price to getting attention in this way. There's the obvious one - people don't like to hear it, will perceive you a "victim," and either avoid you, and also it's just human nature that we think our problems are because of fate or circumstances, while the OTHER person's problems are because of something in their character or something they've done wrong. (See psych. research on "attribution).

But the even higher price is that you are focused on your own negative things.

Talk about a good way to get STUCK!

Working on your attitude is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. It will open up your world. Change yourself (including thoughts and beliefs and emotions) and you change your world.
