If your attention is not controlled to direct your thought power towards achieving a definite objective, then a multitude of distractions will most likely divert you from finding that which you seek now. We already know that having a clear mental picture of one’s definite purpose is like placing a north star in the mind. The key here is to know what you are looking for in order to find it throughout the course of your pursuit.
“Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find.” (Matthew 7:7)
Like most of our followers, you are developing an understanding as to what your definite purpose is. As a result, your vision is becoming more clear enabling you to take action towards a more immediate and accurate outcome. So what are the key questions to ask that will help you concentrate on the right objectives?
A newsletter from the Napoleon Hill Foundation identified a children’s book entitled The Three Questions which we believe are thoughtful and wise questions to consider. As you consider these three questions, start exercising your mind to control attention through the application of self-discipline.
- When is the best time to do things?
- Who is the most important one?
- What is the right thing to do?
At the end of the book, the wise old turtle sums up the answers to these questions, “Remember that there is only one important time, and that time is now. The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side.”
Achieve the object of Controlled Attention
Apply these six factors through self-discipline in order to achieve controlled attention:
- Know and understand your definite purpose and major objectives.
- Use your imagination to create a picture in your own mind of the objective already achieved.
- Align your desires to better understand the reasons why the objective must be attained.
- Develop absolute Faith to believe that you will achieve the objective.
- Free your mind to strengthen its inherent ability to create the practical and workable action plan according to the nature of your definite purpose.
- Strengthen your will-power by committing to render persistent and continuous action towards attaining the object back of your definite purpose.
As you work towards developing true potential by controlling your concentrated effort on what is important now, apply diligence to make certain that your definite purpose aligns with the ideal. In addition to your faith, which is essential to believing whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve, add moral excellence, obtain specialized knowledge, focus on self-control and be persistent as well as consistent in your daily actions.
