Broadcasting yourself

The need to broadcast stems from insecurity. By marketing your lifestyle and accomplishments you are seeking approval and envy.
If you seek attention, you will find it. But attention-seeking is less about courage than insecurity.
A person who dresses or acts to court attention is not bold; they are lonely. They want to be noticed. Their performance is intended to seduce you into adopting the role of audience.
Resist the urge to parade your accomplishments. Showing-off only attracts unwanted attention in the form of jealousy and resentment.
Chuang Tzu argues that it is foolish to advertise your wealth or your fighting skills.
