Your attention is worth billions of dollars to the corporations eager to spend money to buy access to your precious little mind.
Yet, we inadvertently and detrimentally squander this valuable resource on things that don’t reward us the way they should, or the way we had hoped.
We get sucked in to the stupid distractions we despise.
That’s why I try to make sure every email I write delivers you a worthwhile boost you can carry with you on your merry way.
And today I want to remind you that not only is your attention the most powerful weapon you possess, but you can learn and improve on wielding this weapon more skillfully each day.
You can add more time in your day, more money to your bank account, and more energy to your body through the power of your attention.
As the great Earl Nightingale has taught us: by focusing all of your attention on one goal at a time.
Many things pull on your attention.
Your internal thoughts, feelings, and impulses.
External noises, objects, people, phones, computers, email inboxes, text messages.
But you don’t have to be a victim of your environment, or even to your own pre-formed habits.
Through mindfulness practice you can make actual changes to your brain that give you the increased ability to be singularly focused on the most important goal – big or small, right now.
What gurus of old suspected through their own observations (like in Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” which was first published in 1937), has now been proven to be scientifically accurate.
Neuroscientists, through functional MRI’s developed recently in 1990, are discovering more and more about brain plasticity, and the power you possess to get better at things like focus and attention.
There’s a really good book on cultivating your attention called “The Attention Revolution” by B. Alan Wallace, where he guides you into learning how to improve and harness the power of your attention.
I highly recommend it to help improve your daily focus, which can be hugely transformative over time.
And whether or not you have ADHD to hinder you, or medication to help you, your brain still has its own natural ability to help you improve your focus, concentration, and attention.
And tapping into that power is only going to make you that much better.
