Concentrate And Reduce Your Time To Success

Sep 3, 2008
Sometimes in all the success stories we here about, we find those people who have suddenly gone from broke to major success. These are not odd people, but they are odd in how they work day to day. And here in lies a key to reducing the time for you to succeed.

Most people will tell you success takes time, with years of workaholic behavior; however this is not the case. Such thoughts would make us believe and form a belief that working hard is the only way to succeed. The truth is if you don't break down such a belief system, then you can never achieve success in short periods of time. Thus you become one who self sabotages there own success, by subconsciously thinking that you have not put in the necessary effort.

Break out! Success can be done in much shorter periods of time, and it begins with concentration. Concentration or where you put your attention is a golden key to success. If you like going to watch movies, your attention on movies, will make you well knowledgeable about movies, you would know all the latest films out, and could speak about so many.

If you are a fan of going to concerts, then you may know everything about the singer or group in question, you may know all the infinitesimal details. You could know all about the latest releases before then most people, because of the contacts and sources you have built up. And this is why most people never achieve success before 40, simply due to putting there concentration and attention on other areas.

If your heart is not in the game, you will not win. You can win, all it is, is a matter of time, however, how do we shorten the time to win and win big? With the examples given, you should have realized from your own past efforts, where your focus has been. Now you can concentrate and succeed. When you envelope yourself so much into one thing, you without a doubt start to excel at it.

Consider meditation. Meditation is one of the most pointless things anyone can do, granted it is absolutely essential, however, on the physical look of it, it is a waste of time. Meditation however, is a great way to concentrate and find solutions without distraction.

Take a look at a picture. If you take a glimpse only, you will only see major details. If you concentrate for more time, you will pick up more and more. A picture of Mona Lisa, you may pick up her expression, eye color, hair style, background objects and much more, the lighting, etc.

"Concentration moves other things not necessary out of our field of vision, and allows us to zero in on what we want to focus on."

Consider 4 people working, one takes many breaks, one jokes a lot, one listens, while another concentrates. At the end of the work day, one has achieved much more then others. If you have ever played a computer game, and become so immersed, you can realize that time flies, and when you have finished, you have accomplished much more than you thought possible.

In business, projects we have running or any endeavor or desire, you can shorten the time when you concentrate on tasks in front of you. When you concentrate, you simply can't not take action. Can you stand outside looking at a vehicle with keys in your hand and simply stand there for a long period of time, if you are focused on the car? You immediately get into the vehicle and set upon a journey.
