Whatever you are doing, put your whole mind on it!! Motivational Story of Swami Vivekananda when in America

swami-vivekananda

Focus is very important in life. We all know story of Arjuna in Mahabharta where he focused on bird’s eye as his target. Similarly we have story of Indian spiritual leader Swami Vivekananda. The story is very famous on social media.

In America, Swamiji was watching some boys. They were standing on the  bridge trying to shoot at egg-shells that were floating on the river,  but they always missed the target.

Swamiji took the gun and aimed at  the shells. He fired twelve times and every time he hit an egg-shell. 

The boys asked Swamiji: ‘Well Mister, how did you do it?’

Swamiji said ‘  Whatever you are doing, put your whole mind on it. If you are shooting,  your mind should be only on the target. Then you will never miss.

If  you are learning your lessons, think only of the lesson. In my country  boys are taught to do this.’

Swamiji was right. In life to achieve things, focus is the key.
