When we are young, we want to be the center of attention, the center of our universe. We are constantly being told that we need to be. We are constantly being told that we are special, we are special just for being us. All the while, we are being told that we are stupid, we are not special, we are not worthy, and we don’t deserve attention.
I don’t know about you, but I find myself constantly being told I’m stupid. While people may be telling me this, they may not be quite as stupid as I think they are. Like, for example, I know that I can’t be the center of my own universe. I know that I’m special. But I can’t see why that makes me special. And, in some ways, it makes me even more special.
I believe you’d better find out for yourself whether or not you are actually stupid. For example, I know that I cant be the center of my own universe. I know that Im special. But I cant see why that makes me special. So I do what I have to do for the rest of my life.
It really is that simple. The way to get a little more awareness of yourself is by getting a little bit more attention. For example, you have to get your head up. I know that Im one of the most ignorant, but I cant see why that makes me stupid.
In short, to get your head up, you have to look past all the negative thinking and learn to see the positive. And there are two kinds of attention: attention for self, attention for others. The best things in life are the things you can do to make others happy, and the things you can do to make others happy are the things you can do for yourself.
Attention is the ability to focus your attention on something. It is a skill in itself. The focus of attention can be something that others, in particular, can learn to do for you, and you can learn to become the person that you were meant to be. However, if you’re not focused on your own goals you will never be able to fully appreciate the things that are most important to you.
I’ve heard this before and I believe it holds true today. The key is to look at your goals. If, for example, you’re a student trying to get into a great school, you have a lot of goals. However, if you keep focusing on your own goals, you may not be happy with your experience because you can’t get your attention on all those other things that really matter.
I really do like the quote by the late, great, James Carville, who said, “You are what you think about.” This is the principle that applies to everything in life. If you let your thoughts about yourself control you, you will be unhappy and miserable. If you control your thoughts about yourself, you can have a great day and still be miserable.
