There is no doubt that one of the main problems that deter a person's success is their lack of concentration.Lapses can encourage disturbances to get in the way and stall progress.
However if ones wishes to proceed on their road to success, it is imperative they learn how to concentrate. Here are some easy to learning exercises that are easy to implement.
1) Silence or noise:
Most people cannot concentrate when it is too noisy, but others work better with music or in the midst of a crowded room. If you are not aware what best suits you, then try out the different environments. How do you do this? Take a notepad and a pencil or pen with you and try and write down a letter in all the three environments in an exactly set amount of time - 15 minutes. That is all that you will need to determine where your source of concentration lies. How come you might wonder? Check not only for length, but also for development, as that is more important.
2) Focal point:
Every morning or afternoon, before you leave for work or on the way, stare at any object for ten minutes. You can do this while in the toilet, your working room, a car or a bus. You will find this difficult, but whatever happens, do not move your gaze away, just hold it and wait. Then, as the minutes pass you will find yourself deeply meditating about things that happened to you yesterday or challenges you have to face in a few minutes. And then congratulations - you have just conquered the art of meditation.
3) Deep breathing:
In the beginning, you can do this while staring at the object from tip number two, but if you wish to move towards real concentration, you need to do this separately. You can sit down on the floor -if its hard, place a cushion. Close your eyes, breathe, count the number of inhales. When you reach 100, start counting backwards, but this time count the exhales. Mastering this will take you a while, but once you do move on to other kinds of math calculations, such as naming the months of the year from December backwards or alphabetically. After that, make up exercises as you like.
Focus on an animal: cat, dog or even a butterfly or bird. Follow their every movement, as if they exist in a vacuum, by studying every tiny spot on their body. The point of this exercise, is to learn how to diversify your concentration in such a way that movement does not deter you from your goal.
Practice the above four tips and more or less like magic, you will start enjoying life to its fullest because you will be able to focus on the things you want to focus on and disregard those that disrupt. Practice the above tips daily and you will be more closer to achieving your dreams and goals. I wish you best of luck!
