Normally, we can hold our “Concentration” for only few seconds or minutes, even after we remain or become interested, the mind get distracted.
Actually, we never bothered to train this most powerful faculty and the capacity to concentrate when required.
The ‘Power of Concentration’ is like a muscle; the more you use it the stronger if grows. It can be consciously trained…
To start with, take up something simple, on which to hold Concentration and then keep concentrate on it a long as you can. When you need to apply your Concentration, you will find stronger without any further effort. Practice every day for few minutes by use of any one object from several open choices.
Likely, concentrate either on a small dot on a white paper, wall or a flame or any picture or letters in a book etc. Whatever is held as the focus, concentrate on it, gather & hold attention, to the exclusive of all else around you. It is not a question of holding the sight on the object, but hold of the mind, hold as long as you can. When attention falters, then stop. Practice daily for 5/10 minutes, within a month your power of Concentration will raise & influence in all your activities.
