Today I am posting a nice video I found on YouTube. It focuses on a technique the presenter calls Manipulating Attention Technique. He does a nice job of describing the attention shifting process.
He is particularly talking to folks with panic disorders or people with highly negative thoughts. However, it is a very effective technique for anyone – people striving for success, but encountering doubts, athletes, or anyone who encounters negative thoughts.
It also works very well in concert with affirmations. Affirmations can help you reduce the frequency and intensity of the negative thoughts over time, while this technique helps you deal with them in the heat of a given moment.
“This year I am absolutely committed to being the person I came here to be!”
