“Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger.”  ~Arnold Palmer

It’s amazing how well professional athletes or musicians or speakers are able to concentrate before a crowd.  Years of practice help a golfer to swing with precision, a singer to reach the high notes, a speaker to cause a hush to fall over the room.  You can enjoy the same sense of achievement by continuously trying to do better and believing that you can. If you have trouble concentrating, experiment until you find what works best for you.  Maybe you need to close the door and turn off the phone; perhaps you need to enforce strict deadlines on yourself.  Whatever works, find the discipline to do it.

Eating well and getting enough sleep and exercise will help you to feel calm and centered, aiding concentration.

“Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, and I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others. I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”   … Dali Lama

“If you decide to go for it, do it with spirit.  Sometimes success is due less to ability than to zeal.”   … Charles Buxton

“Movement without direction will create a hole in the ground.”  ~Sophia Bedord-Pierce
