This story will tell what two qualities are important to Achieve Goal-Focus and Concentration by an interesting but inspirational part of our sacred book “Mahabharata”. Dronacharya, guru of pandavs and kauravs was trying to teach his disciples the gurumantra to Achieve Goal-Focus and Concentration. He put a wooden bird at the highest branch of the tree as the target and asked his disciples to aim at the eye of the bird. He asked his first disciple from kauravs to describe what he saw. He said, “I see the trees, the branches, the leaves, the sky, the bird and its eye”. Dronacharya asked this disciple to wait. Then he asked the second disciple from pandavs (Bhima) the same question and he replied, “I saw the tree, lots of fruits , the bird”. Dronacharya asked him to wait. Then Dronacharya asked to Arjuna the same question and he replied, “I only see the eye of the bird”. Dronacharya said to him, “Very good, then shoot”. The arrow released by him went straight and hit the eye of the bird.
Unless we focus and concentrate, we cannot achieve our goal. It is hard to focus and concentrate, but it is a skill that can be learned.
