How to concentrate and focus?
Have you ever been with some friends and you didn’t hear anything of what they said because your focus was on something else? Have you ever watched a program and suddenly you notice that you have no idea what the program was about. This is an example of how powerful concentration and focus can be. As Ralph Waldo Emerson says, “Concentration is the secret of strength in politics, in war, in trade, in short, in all the management of human affairs.”
I explained in “the ultimate guide to achieve your goals” that concentration has powerful effects when it is used correctly as it is indispensable to becoming successful in all aspects of life. Studies show that the more you concentrate on your goals, the faster you attain them.
The followings are powerful ways to help you concentrate and focus so you achieve your goals:
You should find yourself a quiet place, then sit comfortably on a chair or lie in bed. Start breathing slowly and deeply for 5 minutes. While relaxing try to free your mind of all negative thoughts. Try to clear your head and push every thought that comes to your mind away while you are relaxing.
3. Concentrate on the same object for additional four minutes-
Now, after the 2 minutes are up, go back again and concentrate on the same object for four additional minutes. This time try to stay focused for those four minutes. Your goal is to free your mind from all the thoughts and focus on the object or situation of your choice and that you want to accomplish and attract into your life.
4. Do this exercise a few times daily.
Learning how to concentrate and focus has many benefits such as peace of mind, improving your memory, controlling your thoughts, and becoming better at meditation and visualization. The more you practice the art of concentration and focus, the faster you will master it.
