Concentration is the ability to think of absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary.
- Ray Knight, professional athlete
Calm your mind. Quiet all of the distractions surrounding you. Concentrate on the one task at hand. Often a naysayer can cloud our minds and break our focus. What in your life distracts you? In the moment of need, silence your brain and allow yourself to stay focused. Save your worries about tomorrow and guilt over yesterday's failures for another time. Maybe you need to meditate, pray, or simply spend a few moments quietly gathering yourself before tackling the project at hand. Now is the time for just one thing--reaching your goal. Today, focus your energy, clear your head, and achieve!
WOW! These are great thoughts! I am so easily distracted when I allow myself to be. Sometimes I wish I had blinders on so that I could ONLY see the road ahead and not that which my periferal vision see. There are so many things in my life that distract me from the goals I have set.
Now is the time to silence my brain, and allow myself to be focused. It's like that track runner that is poised for the gun, concentrating on ONLY that sound. If he/she lets the mind drift, they will move and thus have a false start and could be out of the meet. So therefore, to silence my mind, listen ONLY to that which will help me to reach my goal.. and then like that sprinter, go out and achieve!
Today, I choose to focus my energy, clear my head, and achieve! Thank you Lord!
