The Power of Concentration was written by Theron Q. Dumont, published in 1915, contains 104 pages. Theron Q Dumont wrote more than 100 books during his lifetime.This was not his real name.It was a pseudonym.He began to study law.He suffered a nervous breakdown due to excessive stress and lost everything.He got up again and wrote under many pseudonyms like Thomas Sheldon, Yogi Ramacharaka and Magus Incognito and other names.
Though he wrote more than 100 books during his lifetime, Theron Q Dumont is largely a forgotten entity today. In fact, Theron Q Dumont is not even his real name. It is a pen-name adopted by William Walker Atkinson, an American polymath, who began his career as a grocer's assistant in nineteenth century Baltimore, studied law and went on to amass fame and fortune as a successful legal luminary. However, disaster struck when he suffered a nervous breakdown due to over strain and he lost everything that he had earned. He made an incredible comeback as a religious leader and follower of the New Thought philosophy.
William Atkinson wrote under several pseudonyms like Yogi Ramacharaka, Thomas Sheldon, Magus Incognito, Swami Panchadasi and many others. Theron Q. Dumont was one such pen name that he used, to create the persona of a French writer who talks about the powers of the mind, memory enhancement, the will and using the power of personal magnetism to achieve one's ends. It was presumed that he adopted these pseudonyms to protect his legal career.
The book also contains practical exercises for honing your powers of concentration, observation and keeping your focus sharp and keen. There are also excellent suggestions regarding diet and nutrition, exercise and physical fitness and their effect on the mind. However, the latter half of the book could be disappointing to some readers as it meanders through topics like cosmic rays, divine wisdom, etc which tend to delve into less than believable territory.
However, as a self help manual, The Power of Concentration does indeed provide valuable tips on cultivating the now lost art of concentration. For today's generation which is subject to an infinite number of distractions and is prey to notoriously short attention spans, The Power of Concentration is a most valuable and useful guide.
This experience, describes vividly, how the power of concentration works. It is a skill, which enables you to fix your attention on one single thought or activity, while at the same time excluding from your awareness everything else.
With the power of focus, you conserve your energies and do not dissipate them on irrelevant thoughts or activities. This is why, developing concentration is vital for anyone aspiring to be more efficient and take charge of his or her life.
What does concentration mean Concentration means focused attention, and it has many uses and benefits. It assists in studying, enables faster comprehension, improves the memory, helps in focusing on a task, job or goal, and enables you to ignore meaningless and irrelevant thoughts.
To develop this power, you need to train and exercise it. Forget all your excuses about not having the time or being too busy or lazy. Do not say that the circumstances are not appropriate, or that you cannot find a quiet place to exercise.
Examine the following common situation. You need to study something for your job or for an exam. You sit comfortably on the sofa with the book in your hands and start reading. After a while, you feel hungry and go to the kitchen to eat something.
A job that requires physical strength, such as carrying heavy loads, for example, strengthen the muscles. However, it is not the same as exercising daily in a gym. Reading and studying, exercise the mind, but to gain strong concentration, you need to practice focus exercises every day, just like training in a gym.
To develop this ability, you have to train your mind. Most people believe that concentration is a strenuous and tiring activity, and that it involves exertion and tension, which are difficult and unpleasant. This belief, which usually starts at an early age, is not true.
Telling a child that he or she is not concentrating well enough, creates a subconscious aversion to concentration and to studying, and the child learns to associate them with coercion, lack of freedom, and doing something they do not like to do.
As a student in IPJE, you should be prepared to think carefully about your social identities and lived experiences, both through personal reflection and in community with others. This concentration is intended as a community of practice and accountability for those committed to advocating for justice in education, regardless of their future role.
We anticipate that graduates may play several different roles in schools, community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, or government agencies. What will set you apart in the field is your explicit commitment to diagnosing and addressing issues of equity, injustice, identity, and power.

Review: \"I love that Steven's books are so easy to follow. He gives real-life everyday examples on how to apply his techniques. I also appreciate the fact that he always puts a challenge out there for his readers! This book in particular helped me to understand various new techniques of mindfulness, which can be used to overcome any stress or anxiety issues. It is helping me in developing more focus on work without worrying much. Steve has put enough research work into this book and the reference material is in itself a treasure.\"
Review: \"[F]or those in positions of power, this book shows it does not have to be a trade off between accomplishing something great and having a life outside work. I get that this is an uphill battle as popular culture celebrates the grinders, hustlers ... the blood sweat and tears that people wear as a badge of honor. As the book title suggest, there's a calmer way. This book shows it can be yes and, not either/or. Yes you can be effective at work, become rich, leave a dent in this universe and have a life outside it. Your legacy can be you left a trail of happy, healthy humans who genuinely thought of you as a good boss or manager. You're happier. They're happier. You can see your family, friends, and so can they. That seems pretty good to me, even if you don't accomplish your mission of saving the whales.\"
This one isn't technically a book -- it's a journal. But this journal, specifically designed to help people with chaotic daily lives feel more calm, contains prompts and suggestions to encourage calm, foster self-care, and let the little things go.
Health equity has become an increasingly popular research topic during the course of the past 25 years. Many factors explain this trend, including a growing demand from policymakers, better and more plentiful household data, and increased computer power. But progress in quantifying and understanding health equities would not have been possible without appropriate analytic techniques. These techniques are the subject of this book. 153554b96e
