POWER OF CONCENTRATION

This week on REDMOND'S Review, Darren discusses "The Power of Concentration," written in 1919. Theron Q. Dumont is the writer.

Power of concentration is the subject of this week’s REDMOND’S REVIEW. Darren highlights the fact that people, more now than ever are distracted by so many situations in their living environments.

THE POWER OF CONCENTRATION

Written in 1919 and free in the public record, “The Power of Concentration,” by Theron Q. Dumont is as important of a self help guide, as it was when it was written over 100 years ago. Basically, this book reminds the reader that we are creatures of habit. That we allow ourselves to embrace the habit of distraction. That we are far from too busy, but rather, we chose not to focus.

Learning and embracing the skill of concentration has a tremendous “upside” to moving forward in life and to a over all strategy of personal advancement. Concentration is a “muscle” that needs to be exercised, according to the author. Failure to exercise an individual’s concentration capacity is to let a persons ability to focus start to diminish.

Time and again, Theron Dumont gives example after example of the detrimental effects that the lack of the ability to concentrate brings forth.

BEFORE A.D.D. WAS ACCEPTED

It may be important to note, this book was written before the acceptance of A.D.D as variables to limits on concentration. Rather, the author gives very specific exercises a person can perform to help increase a person’s ability to concentrate. Free to read in the public domain, this may be a valuable self help book for anyone’s personal library.

INDIAN HEROES AND GREAT CHIEFTAINS

This is an image of a young Darren Redmond. He reviews Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains.

INDIAN HEROES AND GREAT CHIEFTAINS

Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains, written by Charles A Eastman in 1918, I put into the ‘must read’ file, for those who want to learn more about North America’s first people.

Darren Redmond reviews Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains, written in 1918 by Charles A. Eastman. It is free to read.

Its author, Charles Eastman, a proud Santee Sioux, out of Red Falls Minnesota, learned many of the stories communicated in this work from his grandparents via the same ‘oral tradition’ generations before he did. A graduate from the Boston School of Medicine in 1890, his non-white skin and background made him unwelcome by some in American medical society, and because of his traditional medical background, some from the first American culture, simply did not trust him at first.

BOOK DETAIL

This work goes into great detail not just about the events that took place over many years, but the thought processes behind these events. I found it particularly interesting when he talks about the very human condition of individuals looking for glory, some for virtual reasons and some for nefarious ones. I am always entertained by the retelling of the story of how Sitting Bull got his name. The time spent with this book is well worth it.

As a footnote, the author worked for his people as a doctor, as a representative in Washington, D.C., and as a founder of the Society of American Indians and helped create and found the Boy Scouts of America.

Lastly, this book is free to read in the public domain.

If you read it please let me know what you think and share this.
