Arjuna’s Focus | Mythological Story

This is one of the stories from Mahabharat when Arjuna, one of the Pandavas was training under his Guru DronaCharya. 

Once upon a time, Guru DronaCharya overheard Duryodhana, one of the Kaurava, talking that Guru always favors Arjun and he never put that much focus on other disciples like him. Guru could have talked to Duryodhana at that time but he thought of a better way to tell everyone that Arjuna is indeed his best disciple.

Arjuna’s Focus | Mythological Story

He asked all of his disciples to come for a test. He stuck a wooden toy bird on a tree's branch. Now he told all the students to aim at the bird's eye. He told whoever will shoot an arrow on the bird's eye will be his best student.

Before everyone would start shooting he asked a question to every student one by one. 


One student said I am seeing a tree & the toy bird.
The other student thought the more we see, the better we are. So he told, Guru I am seeing even more than the other student. I am seeing the tree, the toy bird, the nearby forest, fruits hanging from the tree, the grass too.

Finally, Guru asked the same question to Arjuna.


Arjuna replied, "I CAN ONLY SEE THE BIRD's EYE where I have to shoot. I don't see anything else."

And when the Guru told Arjuna to shoot the arrow, Arjuna arrow hit exactly on the Bird's Eye.

Guru Drona smiled and the other students understood why Arjuna was different than all of them.

Moral -
Dear Friends!!
"Arjuna's was special not because he was the best but because he had the focus. When Guru asked him what do you see. He replied that he only can see his GOAL, his AIM. This is the power of focus. If you want to achieve something in life, don't get distracted. Just focus on your GOAL and continue your journey."
