Attention addiction leaves you with a chronic yearning for everything outside of yourself.
Opinions are not facts and we each have our own views on just about everything.
Who and/or what defines popular opinion and why is it not relevant to you?
Esteemed Wealth Strategist, Author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and multi-millionaire T. Harv Eker listened to only one voice in his head.
He took to heart none of the meaningless opinions of others on his road to success.
His journey was fueled by valuable lessons learned, good advice, and constructive criticism.
Less than 3 years later, he achieved his goals and exceeded his own expectations.
Because he understood his worth and paid no mind to opinions that did not support his best life.
Learn from him how to stop caring what others think, find and listen to your true inner voice.
Are you still sacrificing your goals and dreams to please others?
Now’s the time to stop agonizing over other peoples’ opinions!
What people think of you is seldom a clear opinion of who you truly are.
What’s more, is that how they see you, and the opinion they have of your life, isn’t about you at all.
It’s only a reflection of how they feel about themselves.
Stop dwelling over their thoughts — get over what Harv calls “the attention addiction” — and start living your ultimate life!
Learn to take control of your own mind, how to build self-trust and empower your life so you too may achieve success and wealth.
As humans, fitting in, having people care about us and wanting to share space with us is a natural need we fulfill to stimulate a sense of belonging as it produces health and happiness.
But when our focus is too heavily invested in the opinions of others, it can easily disable us from taking action towards our desires and beliefs.
Whether you're addicted to women's attention, or part of the drama seekers club because you're unhappily married, the root of the problem remains the same.
If you’re always looking for someone else’s approval, you probably lack self-approval.
Our inner critic will say things such as, “You’re not good enough.
You’re nothing compared to these people around you.
If you go after that dream, you’re being selfish.”
Think you can’t silence this voice? Of course you can.
You can choose whether to subscribe to the fear or believe in something extraordinary.
There is another voice within you that says, “You’re worthy.
You’re good enough.
You’re just as valuable as anyone else.”
The question then is: which voice will you believe?
Picture if you will, how life would be if the opinions of others didn’t matter to you…
Would you become egotistical and self-centered, or would you embrace the potential of your new found freedom to fulfill your own true purpose absent the chokehold of the fear of rejection?
If you wish to progress in your life, what other people think should be the last thing you worry about!
Although having approval in certain areas of life can be necessary and healthy, when external approval controls your existence, it’s toxic.
Learn how to escape from caring about what anyone else thinks.
Use what you’ve learned here today and start trusting yourself way more than what you believe the things other people say or think about you.
Happiness is a choice and YOUR happiness is rooted in what YOU believe, so believe in the greatest version of yourself.
Not all the words of those we perceive as authority figures are kind, inspiring, healthy or even true.
You therefore have a responsibility to figure out what is true and to take to heart nothing that others say or think of you.
After all, we cannot blame our thoughts, words and actions on anyone else as what you do is all on you.
Has your Mind ever wondered...
When your self-image is distorted, you have a false belief about yourself that makes you feel unworthy and unable to achieve anything, this often results in a life of complaints and chronic dissatisfaction, which stands in the way of your success.
If you’re easily discouraged and dissuaded from setting and reaching goals, you could be blaming others for your situation instead of focusing on your own will and competence to overcome the unfairness of this world.
Fortunately, you can change your blueprint and develop the supportive language and skills necessary to become the version of yourself that will realize your dreams, instead of continuing the habit of sabotaging your own life and seeking approval outside of yourself.
There are many reasons people become addicted to attention which are primarily psychological in nature, regardless of whether induction was through subconscious or chemical introduction.
At the root of any addiction is a sense of isolation or loneliness, which ultimately affects one’s levels of self-esteem, self-worth, belonging and security.
When the belief has been nurtured that one is deserving of neglect and deficit, it becomes easy to adopt a persona of like mind yet in the same breath, once you decide to take charge of your life and understand that you are as important as anyone else, you start ‘rehabilitating’ your mind and your life to allow yourself to achieve success.
Of course you can, afterall, we repeat what we enjoy and getting attention, whether through drama or delight, releases pain-suppressing endorphins which induce pleasure (to varying degrees).
At the core, the need to connect is stronger than the need to have a meaningful experience when you’re addicted to attention - any will do as long as there is some form of interaction that validates your existence and generates approval of the oppressive force that initially instilled limitations and low self-worth into your being.
Blaming, maiming, complaining, shaming, gossip and drama-based conversations based on conflict to validate one’s unwillingness to take action toward creating the world you desire are the most basic attention seeking behaviors in the realm of personal excellence.
