How To Unleash Your Power Of Concentration
It's the most powerful success strategy of them all!
More success and fortunes have been attributed to sheer concentration
or rather focus than any other success strategy in existence.
Well the fact of the matter is that there many of us have
great ideas and hopes of accomplishments in our lives or businesses.
It starts as a twinkling in your eye after receiving an inspiring
marketing message or some phenomenal idea that came to you
in the shower or some other place where your mind was free
to think without distraction.
The problem is that when it comes down to actually getting
it done, we often fall short because of things like procrastination,
distractions, self-doubt, inconsistency and even fear.
The unfortunate truth is, that the world is literally littered
with the "carcasses" of abandoned ideas and potential accomplishments
that never became a reality for the simple reason that the
person behind them became unfocused, procrastinated, or began
to doubt the validity of their idea in the first place.
Think about this:
"Star Wars" has become one of the most profitable movie and
product franchises in history but, the reality is, back then
the simple idea of "Star Wars" was turned down by every movie
studio in Hollywood before 20th Century Fox accepted it!
Can you imagine that?
Through the simple power of concentration, George Lucas was
able single-mindedly move forward through constant rejection
and bring forth the legendary "Star Wars" films that have
been released from 1977 to 2005. (I think even more to come)
Fact is, this is not an original case. There are countless
stories of triumph and accomplishment, fame and wealth because
Now there are simple steps anyone can take to truly achieve
greatness through focus.
Three simple steps really…
1. Find and define a definite purpose for your idea or desire.
Realize that ideas and desires will come and go but, it only
takes ONE idea or desire to achieve success. Everyone at some
point in their lives has too many ideas and not enough time
to accomplish them all. Pick the one you are most passionate
2. Form the habit of concentrating on that one idea or desire
without allowing distraction. You must control your impulses,
passions, emotions, actions and poor habits. If not you will
end up throwing yet another carcass in the ditch of failure.
Simply and habitually, seek to control those things as you
work toward your idea or desire. Questioning to improve your
idea is fine, but questioning to find a reason to quit is
what most of us do all too often. Remember, the grass doesn't
always look green everyday and there will be times that you
question your own actions. Use them wisely and with progress
3. Build and strengthen your thoughts and mind as you work
toward fulfilling your idea or desire. Different thoughts
and people are always among us. There are always good ones
and bad ones in both. As you work towards achievement, your
thoughts and mind must work with positive energy in order
to conquer your mental and personal adversaries. (that would
be negative thoughts and people)
Following and sticking to these three steps is the true path
of a champion.
The greatest book ever written on the subject of Focus is
"The Power of Concentration" by Theron Dumont.
In it he says, "It is of the utmost value to learn how to
concentrate. To make the greatest success of anything you
must be able to concentrate your entire thought upon the idea
you are working on. The person that is able to concentrate
utilizes all constructive thoughts and shuts out all destructive
ones. The greatest man would accomplish nothing if he lacked
concentration." Through focus or the power of concentration,
ANYONE can achieve greatness on an epic scale.
Come to think of it, is "Focus" the real "Force"?
Become the Master of Focus and you WILL achieve greatness
