Focus of Attention, Focus of Mind, Focus of Habit, and Focus of Environment!

Mental focus training and mental concentration training are not the same things. Many people think that mental focus is the ability to sit down and do work. People use the term focus when they are describing concentration ability. Mental focus is much more potent than mental concentration.

A lack of mental focus can have adverse effects on your ability to accomplish goals in life. Mental focus is the consciously determined effort of controlling your attention in the process of creating, establishing, and maintaining an idea, an intention, or a state of mind over significant periods concerning the pursuit and achievement of a detailed vision, objective, or goal.
 
Mental focus involves conscious awareness. Many people have achieved success in business but still do not have a mental focus. In mental focus you are not driven by anything; you are in the driver’s seat. Many people do not know their thoughts are not theirs; they assume so since they pop up randomly. You are in the driver’s seat when you choose your thoughts, you choose your ambitions, and you choose your goals.

The person you are today is not the same person you will be tomorrow. Psychologically you will change selves thousands of times a day. A weird concept, but it is true. Every thought you are engaged in, for more than 30 seconds, you take on the nature of that thought. As you read this article, you may be curious about the nature of mental focus. An hour after reading this article, if you center all your thoughts and feelings, you would know that you are not the same person you were an hour before.

You are now a new person because whatever thoughts you are thinking at this moment, that’s who you are. These are the parameters of your psychology that exist at this particular time. In another hour, your thoughts will change; you’ll be thinking about something else, which will be your experience. Every individual has these same traits. You are switching selves from moment to moment. The moment you get up from reading this article, you may go outside and run into someone that says something that makes you angry.
 
It would be best when you have gone off-center with conscious awareness to detect the shift in who you are at that moment. You need to be aware of this change to prevent it and be the person you need to be all day long, all week long, all year long. Consistency is required, so you do not go off course. Being driven and having a mental focus are different. When forced to do a task, you lack self-control. Stop being controlled by forces outside of you. When the media governs you, it owns you. Have conscious control over yourself. With mental focus, you will have the power to create your mindset. Stop letting other people’s thoughts control you.
 
A sign of poor mental focus is the inability to sit down and read detailed information. Suppose you cannot get into what it will take to achieve your goals. You will not reach them. Another sign is difficulty doing monotonous tasks that require undivided attention. You have poor mental focus when you avoid tedious duties. When you know there’s something you need to get done, and your mind wanders onto other things, you have a mental focus problem. If you have great ideas and don’t act on them, you have a mental focus problem. If you cannot sit in a quiet environment without noise and distraction, you have a mental focus problem.

The biggest obstacle to mental focus is the inability to attend to a target.

4 MENTAL FOCUS TECHNIQUES

1) Sit down for 30 minutes and allow the mind to run freely with its normal thoughts. Observe the kinds of thoughts going through your mind during the session, and take notes. Think about the things you want in life and see which direction your thoughts are taking you. Don’t try to manipulate your thoughts; Watch them. You will see how ridiculous many of them are.

2) Sit down and force yourself to think no thoughts. Drive every thought out of your mind. This exercise may be a little challenging initially, but this is a skill you will use for increased mental focus. When thoughts arise, you can stop the thinking process at any point.

3) Shut out all thoughts; form an image in your mind and hold that image. Once you can clear your thoughts, begin to reflect on what you are trying to achieve.

4) Take a piece of paper or any object and think of a positive concept that might have something to do with a goal you want. Write something on that object; It can be one word. Think of a positive concept that might have something to do with a goal you want. Write that concept on the object and think of it from the moment you awake until you go to bed. The lesson here is to wake up with an idea and carry it with you all day long.
 
Try these simple techniques and see the results.
