Developing the power of concentration is a powerful tool to helping you resolve whatever situation you're facing. Every problem has a solution waiting to be uncovered. But this solution often times requires the power of concentration to yield the answer to you.
In this article we'll uncover 3 action steps you can use right now to develop the power of concentration
Action Step #1 - Write out what you need resolved
Think of the goal you're working on and the area in which you're stuck. Try to be as specific as possible. During this process identify the area you're having success in and the area you need resolution. Write these out as two separate areas. It will help bring better clarity on what you need to focus on.
For example, you may be working on your relationship with your partner and you're having success spending more time together but when coming to communication there may be some breakdown in certain areas.
So you'd write down
- success area = spending more time together
- area needs working on = better communication
Or if you're working on a business, one area may prove to be productive while growth seems to be stunted in another. Specifically identify these areas as shown in the example above.
Action Step #2 - Visualize your outcome
Now that you've clearly identified the area you need to work on, clearly define what you'd like the end result to be. You see, you're looking at where you are now and where you need to be so you have a clear target that you're working towards.
Using the relationship example above, you identified that you and your partner are not open enough in your communication or you yell instead of talk with each other when dealing with more intense situations. What would your desired results be? - To be more open in your communication or communicate in a calmer manner when dealing with more intense situations. Visualize your outcome and write it down.

Tool #1 - Use your observational skills
What causes the break down in communication? What are you doing in your business that's not working? Think about the last time you tried to communicate what happened? What triggered the argument? As you use your observational skills to mentally observe your own behaviour and that of your partner or to observe your business, you'll begin to see patterns that trigger certain reactions and results.
Tool #2 - Use the Law of Thinking
Now begin to activate the Law of Thinking. You identified the problem, you used your observational skills to determine where you're getting the snags in your relationship, business or whatever goal you're working on, now through the Law of Thinking, brain storm possible solutions to resolve the situation. Write these down.
Implement your best ideas but keep an open mind and listen within for other inspired ideas that surface from within you. Also give room to allow things to unfold naturally as well.
