Controlled Attention is organized mind power. Controlled Attention is the highest form of self discipline. Controlled Attention is the act of coordinating all the faculties of the mind and directing their combined power to a given end or definite objective. It is an act that can be obtained only by the strictest sort of self-discipline.
It is obvious, therefore, that when you voluntarily fix your attention upon a definite major purpose of a positive nature and force your mind through your daily habits of thought to dwell on the subject, you condition your subconscious mind to act on that purpose.
Controlled attention, when it is focused upon the object of your definite major purpose, is a medium by which you make positive application of the principle of suggestion.
The mind never remains inactive, not even during sleep. It works continuously by reactions to the influences that reach it. Therefore, the object of controlled attention is that of keeping your mind busy with thought material, which may be helpful in attaining the object of your desire.
Controlled attention is self-mastery of the highest order, for it is an accepted fact that the person who controls his or her own mind may control everything else.
KEEP YOU MIND ON THE THINGS YOU WANT, AND
OFF THE THINGS YOU DON’T WANT
