Ok…you may be wondering… What does the photo really mean?
Is it a lonely man on a desert, when the sun is high, or perhaps a hole in a wall, or maybe a pupil of a very obese man?
What’s your guess? Perhaps you have got your own answer. So what is it?
I actually drew the point for you, so your mind can wander and have some fun…
The answer is simple and connected to you.
It leads to an exercise that can help you do what you want to do in your life…
When you look at those of us who achieve nearly “impossible” goals, you may start wondering…what makes the difference between the “average” person and the exceptionally successful one?
People like Henry Ford, Albert Einstein, Thomas Watson(the founder of IBM ), Rockefeller, Picasso, the icons of our modern world, had the ability to do it exceptionally well..
What was it?
When you analyze their lives, you see that the ability to complete the tasks they were working on, was extraordinary. They planned their actions well, used their time to do much more than normally people can.
There are no magic formulas that transform a human being into a genius. What makes the whole difference are small things, like the one connected to the photo that you see above.
…They had the ability to concentrate like a snake hypnotizing its prey.
When Albert Einstein was solving the problems of modern physics, noone and nothing was able to distract him. He was so engrossed in thinking and imagining the possibilities, following the logical conclusions…that even breaking the tables, crushing them into pieces, wasn’t able to take his attention away from what he was thinking of.
Can you pause for a minute and imagine what you could do in your life if you had such ability to concentrate? How much faster would you accomplish your goals, finish your work, whether you are a writer, painter, designer, computer programmer, copywriter, marketer… How much more creative, intuitive could you be? Cut off all the unimportant distractions, and just do the thing you want and need. Genius is often a result of the ability to concentrate. Especially now, when our world is so full of distractions.
Isaac Newton – one of the greatest scientists in the history of mankind.
People laughed at him sometimes, not fully understanding the real meaning of his behavior. Once he was invited to visit a friend. He came over, sat on a sofa in a leaving room, and waited for the man to show up. But the man forgot about Mr Newton, and left the room to finish his own duties. Meanwhile, the great physicist started thinking about one of the problems of physics he was working on at that time.
In the morning, the host came back to the room… just to realize the mistake he made. Isaac Newton was still sitting there in the same position, and in the same place …and thinking, absolutely passionate about the problem he was solving.
When you concentrate with such power, you can overcome the obstacles stopping you from connecting the future you want to be yours, with the situation you are currently experiencing. It is easy to imagine what you want… but sometimes the achievement of it seems to be so far away. You need a bridge to walk over the trouble. Use your brain to create it. Our subconscious minds can do “wonders”.
This brings the whole story closer to the exercise the photo introduced. Shows you the way to risen your own level of satisfaction and perhaps… to become unstoppable.
How to be the master of your own ability to concentrate, and read, solve the problems faster?
The exercise is simple and you need to spend 2 minutes on it.
Take a white piece of paper, for example 0.5 meter x 0.5 meter. Next, draw a small circle in the middle of the page. Put the paper on a wall so you can see it, or on the floor. Now… look ,without blinking, on the point in the middle of the page, for about 2 minutes. Try to sit still and do not move your eyes away from the circle.
Repeat the exercise every day, slightly extending the amount of time you spend on looking at the point. When you can concentrate for longer than 20 – 25 minutes, you will be amazed by the results you experience. You can learn how to control your own mind.
Concentration is one of those powerful influencing factors that allowed the successful people achieve their dreams. Why…? When you concentrate, you cut off all the unimportant clutter, and just dive deep into the most important things that you are doing at the moment. Your personal power – strength- intelligence- intuition- genius is simply multiplied.
The small things are often behind the great changes…
All the best,
