Keep a secret
To learn how to keep a secret, follow the guide below:
1. Change your focus
Many people when they know a secret, they feel they have this compulsion to tell someone about it. If you have compulsion to tell a secret, then you need to change your focus. Think and focus on something else other than the secret. The more you keep focusing on telling the secret to someone, the more urge you will continue to have.
Changing focus is a powerful skill that can be developed and strengthened by studying concentration and focus. Shift your focus to a different topic. The more you start focusing on a different topic, the easier it will become for you to keep a secret.
Not only can focus help you keep a secret, but it also can improve other parts in your life as discussed in the “ultimate guide to achieve your goals.”
2. Remind yourself of your loyalty
Usually when someone tells you a secret, he is trusting you to keep it and has huge trust and respect for you. Remind yourself that if you tell the secret, then others will stop respecting you as this shows people that you can‘t be trusted when it comes to keeping a secret. People would start to wonder if when they tell you a secret, you would tell it to someone else. Would you like people to see you as someone who can’t be trusted?
3. Write it down
When you have the compulsion to tell a secret, you should learn to write it down instead. Research shows that expressing your thoughts on a piece of paper helps to reduce the urgency and the compulsion to tell a secret.
4. Avoid gossiping
One of the main reasons people tell secrets is to start gossiping about others. Know that gossiping about others doesn’t do anyone good and it is a negative behavior. If you avoid situations where gossip is common, you will start avoiding situations where you must tell a secret.
