Best Quotes about Concentration
Concentration is why some athletes are better than others. You develop that concentration in training. You can't be lackluster in training and concentrate in a meet.
If you have to remind yourself to concentrate during competition, you've got no chance to concentrate.
The great difference between those who succeed and those who fail does not consist in the amount of work done by each but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of those who fail most ignominiously do enough to achieve grand success but they labor haphazardly at whatever they are assigned, building up with one hand to tear down with the other. They do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities. They have no faculty for turning honest defeats into telling victories. With ability enough and ample time, the major ingredients of success, they are forever throwing back and forth an empty shuttle and the real web of their life is never woven.
It is not the straining for great things that is most effective; it is the doing the little things, the common duties, a little better and better.
Phelps, Elizabeth Stuart
I'm trying not to look too far ahead. All I'm thinking is one shot at a time, one hole at a time, and that's what I want to keep doing.
It's shocking how little there is to do with tennis when you're just thinking about nothing except winning every point.
Ninety percent of my game is mental. It's my concentration that has gotten me this far.
The ability to concentrate and to use time well is everything.
Any individual can be, in time, what he earnestly desires to be, if he but set his face steadfastly in the direction of that one thing and bring all his powers to bear upon its attainment.
Randall, J. Herman
My ability to concentrate and work toward that goal has been my greatest asset.
Before water generates steam, it must register 212 of heat; 200 will not do it. The water must boil to generate enough steam to move an engine. Lukewarm water will not run anything. Lukewarmness will not generate life's work.
It's tough trying to keep your feet on the ground, your head above the clouds, your nose to the grindstone, your shoulder to the wheel, your finger on the pulse, your eye on the ball and your ear to the ground.
One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.
It is those who concentrates on but one thing at a time who advance in this world. The great man or woman is the one who never steps outside his or her specialty or foolishly dissipates his or her individuality.
Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of your attention.
It may be objected by some that I have concentrated too much on the dry bones, and too little on the flesh which clothes them, but I would ask such critics to concede at least that the bones have an austere beauty of their own.
Concentrate; put all your eggs in one basket, and watch that basket...

Peale, Norman Vincent

Engstrom, Ted W.
If our thoughts and hopes are elsewhere, it is impossible to set our faces steadily toward the work required of us.
The next point -- that's all you must think about.
It seems essential, in relationships and all tasks, that we concentrate only on what is most significant and important
Concentration and mental toughness are the margins of victory.
Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
Sivananda, Sri Swami
Concentrate, play your game, and don't be afraid to win.
Those who attain to any excellence commonly spend life in some single pursuit, for excellence is not often gained upon easier terms.
Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials for success in life, no matter what may be one's aim.
Rockefeller, John D.
The master of a single trade can support a family. The master of seven trades cannot support himself. The wind is never for the sailor who knows not to what port he is bound.
The giants of the race have been men of concentration, who have struck sledge-hammer blows in one place until they have accomplished their purpose. The successful men of today are men of one overmastering idea, one unwavering aim, men of single and intense purpose.
Marden, Orison Swett
Concentration is the factor that causes the great discrepancy between men and the results they achieve... the difference in their power of calling together all the rays of their ability and concentrating on one point.
Marden, Orison Swett
Enter every activity without giving mental recognition to the possibility of defeat. Concentrate on your strengths, instead of your weaknesses... on your powers, instead of your problems.
Meyer, Paul J.
When you write down your ideas you automatically focus your full attention on them. Few if any of us can write one thought and think another at the same time. Thus a pencil and paper make excellent concentration tools.

The weakest living creature, by concentrating his powers on a single object, can accomplish good results while the strongest, by dispersing his effort over many chores, may fail to accomplish anything. Drops of water, by continually falling, hone their passage through the hardest of rocks but the hasty torrent rushes over it with hideous uproar and leaves no trace behind.
I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time...
As long as I can concentrate and remain somewhat calm, I can normally do very well.
Success is focusing the full power of all you are one what you have a burning desire to achieve.
Peterson, Wilferd A.
