Importance of Concentration
The power of concentration can be described as
focused attention. It is the ability to direct the attention to one single thought
or subject, to the exclusion of everything else. Concentration has many importance
and benefits. It assists in studying and understanding faster, improves the memory,
and helps in focusing on any task, activity or goal, and achieving it more easily
and efficiently. It is also required for developing psychic powers, and is a powerful
tool for the efficient use of creative visualization. When this ability is developed,
the mind obeys us more readily and does not engage in unsuccessful, negative thoughts
or worries. We gain mental mastery and we experience true peace of mind. Sometimes
you can find strong powers of concentration in
yourself. When you really and earnestly want to excel in your studies, pass an important
exam or solve a problem, this power becomes available to you. In such cases, it
appears because of some need or desire, but developing it in a systematic way brings
it under your control and grants you the ability to use it intentionally, whenever
you need it. To do so, you need to practice special exercises on a daily basis.
Here is what you can gain by developing this power :
- Control your thoughts.

- Better memory.
- Inner strength.
- Will power.
- The ability to study and grasp more quickly.
