Hello everyone! Hope you enjoyed your week. Let’s talk about the power of focus.
The power of attention or concentration is the most essential in developing the power of our mind. When we know how to direct our attention properly, it is startling. The cultivation of focus and attention is the most important characteristic of any successful person and one worth practicing as a skill in attaining our success.
When we let our brain break the power of focus by removing our attention from another object, we lessen the power of the result that we would have gotten if we concentrated on a particular purpose for a longer period of time. For example, this is apparent when we talk about the power of visualization, which is when we visualize an image of whatever success means to us. We set forces in the universe in motion that work for us on achieving the result we visualize about.
However, this is easier said than done. Choose any single object and concentrate your attention on it for a definite purpose for even 10 minutes. You will see that your mind will wander a dozen times, and it will be necessary to bring it back to the original purpose. Each time the effect will have been lost, and at the end of 10 minutes, nothing will have been gained because you have not been able to hold your thoughts steadily to the purpose. It is through attention that you will finally be able to overcome obstacles of any kind on your path.The only way to get better at this wonderful power is by practice — practice makes perfect in this as in anything else.
Here’s an exercise you can do as well to cultivate the power of attention. Take a picture with you and pay attention to as many details of it as you can, note the expression of the eyes, the hair, the clothes, etc. Now cover it and close your eyes and try to see it mentally. If you can see all the details of the photo perfectly and can form a good mental picture of the photo then you are doing well. If not, repeat the process until you can.
By developing the power of focus in your life, you will find that the circumstances and the environment around you will follow the trend of your mental and spiritual progress. Growth will follow knowledge, action will follow inspiration, opportunity will follow perception. In other words, the spiritual growth will come first and then the transformation into the limitless possibilities of achievement will follow.
Thought is the process by which we may absorb the Spirit of Power and hold the result in our inner consciousness until it becomes part of our ordinary consciousness. The method of accomplishing this result by the persistent practice of this principal is the key that unlocks the storehouse of Universal Truth.
I will leave you with this quote: “That a man can change himself, improve himself, re-create himself, control his environment, and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide awake to the power of right thought in constructive action.” — Larsen
