Youth spend their time and energy to draw others attention towards them. They feel uncomfortable if they don’t receive any attention or any appreciation for the way they are dressed up, for their hairstyle. There is the tendency of showing off.
The attention on physical luxuries: Youth feel restless, uncomfortable when they don’t get any attention, appreciation or affection from their friends and family members. They also want to show their new acquirements like high CC bike, motor bikes, foreign watches, gold chain, jeans, gorgeous cloths, branded shoes, mobile, laptop etc.
The attention from social media: Am I being tagged with liked, shared, forwarded for whatever I have posted? Youth keeps on checking, reviewing, and analyzing how their post is being viewed, evaluated & responded by others.
Youth should be aware that there is a limited budget of attention which can be spent for different purpose and activities. If you lose your attention and focus on necessary and important things of life like study, job vacancy, new career opportunities, field development scope, current socio-political events, skill development related sources etc. then you won’t get the desired outcome. Diverting your attention is like diverting your energy. Shifting your attention from waste and negative aspect towards constructive and positive aspect will lead you to self-enhancement, empowerment and development.
When you have a focused attention on your goal, you conserve your energy whereas division of attention leads to dissipation of energy. Positive attention helps one to safeguard the self from harmful habits, thoughts and relationship.
