Guest blogger Lorie Sheffer: Attention

Why do some folks focus on what or who they don’t like? Why give attention to the things and people who upset them, when they could be spending that same time and attention thinking about things and people they do like ?

Notice what singer was given the most attention last year? When asked in an interview if she regretted her performance at the VMAs, she smiled and said, “No! People won’t stop talking about it!” Talk about free publicity. She’s laughing all the way to the bank. Smart girl, really. She knew exactly what the reaction would be.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if music legend Carlos Santana had gotten the same amount of attention for what he had done? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Exactly.
