If you’d like to get more attention from other people, make it so that you’re getting more attention from yourself. In other words, give yourself more attention. If you do, you will command it from other people, too.
When you want to get more attention from other people, this is your own internal guidance saying to you that it wants to get more attention from you. This means you haven’t been focusing on what you truly ultimately want to experience and listening to what feels good on the way toward shaping your life around this. Considering this, here are some ways you can make yourself feel like you’re getting more attention (specifically, more attention in the forms you actually want it):
1) Spend some quality time with yourself.
Take time to meditate, to exercise, to prepare yourself a good meal, to read, to listen to yourself, to spend time with friends, and to do whatever else you’ve been wanting to be doing but haven’t gotten around to.
2) Do for yourself what you want other people to do for you that would make you feel like you’re getting attention from them.
Do an activity that you enjoy. Tell yourself that you appreciate what you’ve accomplished. Take time to express gratitude even for the little things that are what you’ve wanted. Take time to celebrate your successes, however small, for every success is of supreme importance in shaping the life you want to be living. Show yourself that you care about yourself. Go out of your way to be there for you and to do what feels right and good for you.
3) Re-evaluate your priorities and consider how you might fill more of your time with whatever most excites you, interests you, and really, deeply fulfills you.
4) Do what you really want to do and not what you don’t want to do.
If you’re in a job that you don’t want to be in, imagine what it would be like to be in a job you love, ask yourself what feels good from this place, and pursue this.
If you’ve been wanting to lose weight or tone your body or improve your health, imagine what you would really like to feel about yourself, ask yourself what feels good to do from this place, and act on this.
If you have had issues with family, ask yourself what you’d really like to be feeling and act on whatever feels good once you’re feeling this.
If you’ve been wanting to pursue hobbies, imagine what that would feel like and pursue them.
If you’ve been wanting to spend time with friends, imagine what it would feel like actually to be doing this, and go do it.
5) Make yourself your highest priority.
If you are not your priority, you won’t be anyone’s priority. So ask yourself what you’d like to feel about your life in the ideal, step into that feeling place, and always listen to and act on what feels right and good for you from there.
