Ways To Focus And Get Centered

If you think multitasking is effective, then think again! Here are some ways to focus and get centered written by Martina McGowan for Business2Community.com. Women are better at multitasking than men apparently, but is that really a great thing? I’m about to get some unlikes for that comment. Not only does multitasking lead to counter-productivity but it’s been scientifically proven to be damaging to our brains.  This article caught my attention as it’s another example of how multitasking is ineffective. In order to achieve, it’s vital to hone in one one task at a time otherwise each task being attempted will only be completed at a lower level of competency.

Ways To Focus And Get Centered

Exert your self control! It is one of the most difficult things in the world to remain centered, but you must corral your thoughts to stop straying and return to the work at hand.

Find a purpose to help drive you. We commonly lack motivation if we lack a purpose. Without a reason that’s big enough, without a “why” that is part of you, you will have a tough time moving forward consistently. If the purpose is big enough, then the how will almost always handle itself. Failure isn’t even a fleeting thought.

Clear up your goals. Perhaps your goal is a million dollars or a boat that you wish to purchase when you reach your goal. Work toward your stated reason in incremental steps.

Find and repeat a “focus mantra.” Find your focus. Is it a boat? If it’s the boat in our example, then you will want to read about it, daydream about it, look online or in papers, travel to boat shows and stores and slowly but surely you produce enough thought energy in that area to help materialize all of the things, individuals, chances and cash essential to bring the boat into your life. The notion of the boat becomes real to you in a very emotionally charged way.

Make sure your want for the purpose is strong enough. The most crucial question to ask before you attempt to accomplish any goal is, “Do I truly have a strong enough desire to make this happen?” You need a powerful enough purpose to propel you and give you that magical gleam in your eyes when you consider it. If not, the work will prove futile. Simply search deeper and keep seeking that which truly sparks you.

Please share these ways to focus and get centered if you liked them! I liked the point about repeating a focus mantra – it helps to communicate to your subconscious mind your dreams and aspirations. Your subconscious mind then works with you to bring those into reality. It helps to give you purpose and motivation  to do whatever you need to do, to enable for you to achieve those dreams and aspirations. It’s also completely in tune with the Law Of Attraction, and as Tony Robbins always says: “Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want, or don’t have” – if you focus on what you don’t want, then you’ll attract that into your life. By focusing on what you want, and visualise it, then equally, you’ll attract that into your life. Does that sound a little wacky? I don’t think so.


What You Think About, You Bring About – So Focus On What You Want

If you’re a believer in the Law Of Attraction, then this article on what you think about, you bring about, will be of interest to you. If you’re not a believer in the Law Of Attraction, or are not familiar with it, then maybe this article will get you thinking. It is written by Michael Michalko, author of Creative Thinkering, Thinkertoys, Cracking Creativity and ThinkPak. In summary, if we intend to do something, we visualize it, and by various forces of nature, start noticing the substance of, or the result of our intention, everywhere.  We start noticing only things that our brain deems important having set our intention.

Your Thoughts are Tiny Spins

Thoughts like Tiny Spins

We have all played with magnets when we were children. A magnetized object consists of a multitude of tiny little elements called “spins” (see the illustration). Each spin has a particular orientation corresponding to the direction of its magnetic field. In general, these spins will point in different directions, so that their magnetic fields cancel each other out (disordered spins are illustrated on the left). Spins pointing in opposite directions repel each other, like the north poles of two magnets that are brought together.

However, when the temperature decreases, the spins spontaneously align themselves, so that they all point in the same direction. Instead of cancelling each other, the different magnetic fields now support each other, producing a strong overall pattern. Spins pointing in the same direction attract each other, like the north pole of one magnet attracts attracting the south pole of another magnet. Magnetization is a good example of how forces aligned in the same direction attract and reinforce each other to create a dynamic, natural pattern. In the image on the left, the pattern is inconsistent and incoherent, while in the image on the right the pattern is straight, coherent, and dynamic.

Think of your thoughts as tiny spins in your brain. If you have no intention to be or to do something, your thoughts are disordered, with no direction, much like the tiny spins on the left. When you have a real intention to be or to do something, your thoughts now have purpose and automatically align with each other to form a dynamic mental state of awareness aimed in the direction of the intention.

Whilst the Law Of Attraction has not made an appearance here, it’s clear that there is congruence between the Law Of Attraction, and with Michael Michalko’s suggestion that what you think about, you bring about. I thought I’d make an addition to the original title with the words ‘so focus on what you want’ as ultimately, that’s the reason why I excerpted it. It forms one of the main points of The Law Of Attraction; if you focus on what you want, rather than on what you don’t have, or don’t want, then you’ll achieve what you want.  If you focus on what you don’t have, then that is what you’ll get. This is why goal setting is so important, as by setting yourself goals, you’re making an intention which – maybe unwittingly – creates a road map. Without goals in place, there is no destination in place, so how on earth do you get there? This is also in tune with Tony Robbins’ advice to shift their focus;
