" Concentration " - The Key to Success!

" Concentration " - The Key to Success!

Our world has become busier and busier with more TV Stations, Radio Stations, Websites, E-mails,
 Mobile Phones and other forms of interruptions in the daily life. We become overwhelmed with new ways of simplifying life, but in reality the so called time saving devises end up chewing up more and more of our time. End of the day all of us say, we wanted to be successful but not able to focus on anything!
One of the secrets to success is what I want to share with you in this article so that we can understand this ' quiet and powerful ' tool the successful people have been using to climb the ladder of great achievement. We don't need to be extraordinary and super natural to apply this key. Ordinary people like me and you have already used it knowingly or unknowingly to achieve extraordinary results several times.
This magic key is " Concentration ". It is a 13 lettered word. Very simple but powerful. It has a tremendous power that transforms life like a tornado in action. Concentration has been defined as "the ability to direct one's thinking in whatever direction one would intend".
Success and failures are part of the progress in life. However success and failures have to be handled differently. It is also to be observed that despite the differences in the way the two are to be handled, there are some aspects, which one needs to consider which are common to both. One of the key common factors for both success and failure is Concentration.
Successive failures some times makes one to think of the failures there by preventing one from bringing back the focus to the task.
This can be amply seen in our cricketing world, which most of us are familiar. There have been several instances, when batsmen after achieving a milestone like having scored a century, a double hundred, tend to throw away their wicket. This is due to the sudden shift in the focus from continuing the task, to the happiness of success. Similarly, the failures of capable batsmen were mainly due to the lack of concentrationand letting their thoughts drift to those aspects not relevant to the game or failures that have gone behind.

Few months back I had the opportunity to attend a workshop conducted by"Custommerce", on ' strategies for a customer-driven economy ' at Hotel LeelaKempinski, Kovalam. One of the Speakers was the eight - time world Billiards Champion Geeth Sethi who talked about concentration drawing an example from the world of sport to illustrate the power of concentration. It is indeed an inspiring story and let me share it with you.
Ever heard of James Wattana? He was the former billiards champion from Thailand nicknamed 'Thai-Phoon'. It was the 1991 NEC England World Billiards Championship final. Wattana, just 16 and half years old, is playing Jimmy White of the United Kingdom. The Thai is playing brilliantly and is leading seven frames to one, supremely confident. Suddenly his game drops and before you know it Jimmy White has stormed back to level with Wattana. In the last frame, Wattana just falls apart and White wins the championship 8-7!
