If there were one skill that you can develop that will allow you to totally transform literally every aspect of your life that matters to you, what do you think that skill would be?
Just as importantly, what would you be willing to do to cultivate and, better yet, master it?
Really stop and carefully consider you answer to this last question because, as it turns out, it isn’t rhetorical or hypothetical.
It’s a sincere question. It’s real, and how you answer will determine more about the course your life takes in the future than anything other single factor.
So, what’s this skill? Is it communication? Learning? Loving yourself and others?
No. These things are important, but they all pale in comparison to and are impossible without this key skill for mastering the world within and the world beyond the mind.
This skill is Mental Focus. Your ability to consciously and intentionally concentrate your Mental Focus is the single most important skill you can develop.
The depth and breadth of the effects that mastering this skill will have on the quantity and quality of your life can’t be overstated. Here’s why:
You mind is an outgrowth, a function, and an activity of your brain.
Your brain is the most complex and powerfully organized entity in the known universe, and the mind which it produces is incredibly vast and deep and rich with possibility and potentiality.
If you’re anything like most people, chances are you’ve spent your entire life hugely underestimating how powerful you are.
This is totally understandable because you’ve been immersed in the creative product of the organic manifestation machine that is your mind since before you were even born.
Literally everything about your life experience, from your sensory perceptions to your thoughts and feelings and beliefs and even your sense of self are manifestations of this mind magic.
It’s easy to see how we could overlook the manifestation magic that is our normal, every day experiences of living, and learning to respect and revere and consciously direct this process is the meaning of life.
Mastery of this process means mastery of your focus. How is this accomplished?
The truth is that thinking is an active process.
It happens by itself if we allow it to, but in order to tap into our creative power as human beings we have to utilize our unique ability to consciously control that which happens by itself and to direct these processes in a way that propels us towards the experiences and behaviors and results we want.
Focusing is like breathing: we don’t HAVE to think about it but in order for it to happen, but if we learn to respect it, observe its effects, and manipulate the process we gain a new sense of freedom and personal power and begin to realize our capacity for greatness.
Just as conscious breath work provides a doorway into your autonomic nervous system, concentration of your Mental Focus allows you to access the creative capacity and goal seeking mechanism of the unconscious mind.
In fact, conscious and intentional focusing of your mind along with learning to use your breath to access your autonomic nervous system builds a bridge between the narrow point of consciousness you normally experience yourself to be and the vast creative, energetic, loving totality of who you really are.
Many of these effects can be discussed scientifically, but many of them can not. This is simply because our scientific understanding has yet to develop sufficiently to explain all of which we are capable.
If we are to live fully, we must be prepared to experience that which we are unable to explain.
The human capacity for experience will always exceed our capacity for explanation, and to artificially confine experience to the realm of explainability is a tragic inversion of priorities.
If you wish to discover the power of your concentrated Mental Focus, you will have to experience it for yourself.
Power is the product and balance and relaxation; it is speed appropriately concentrated.
The ability to concentrate your Mental Focus, the creative energy of your mind will allow you to access the infinite personal power that exists within you.
Mastering the world without requires mastering the world within. Go deep, friends, and discover the limitless depths of your being.
