Can you focus?

How do you bring out the best in yourself? According to Christina Bengtsson – Swedish CISM athlete, world champion in precision shooting and Air Force officer – the answer lies in the word “focus”. It is a phenomenon she has spent her whole career exploring and she warns us that part of the next generation may not possess this ability. Currently, our intense society keeps vying for our attention via media and technology and this is distracting us from breaking personal records. In her TEDx-talk, Christina teaches us how to stay present and shares her captivating story of literally going from zero to hero by using the power of focus.

Christina Bengtsson is a world class athlete, author, lecturer, entrepreneur, and military officer in the Swedish Armed Forces. Her book ”The art of focus – 10,9” gives us tangible advice on how to control our thoughts and stay focused in both our professional and personal life. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

The book named “The Art of Focus: 10,9” has recently been translated into the English language so not only the Scandinavian natives can read all about this interesting matter.

Christina is willing to come to you and tell her story on focussing in shooting. This could be an excellent opportunity foy you on that level to firstly learn about the art of focus, and secondly too see what a success a carreer within the CISM arena can bring out!
