This much I know Dr Thomas Dannhauser, a consultant psychiatrist and CEO at Smart Start Mind, imparts his words of wisdom
Read this 500 word article without getting distracted or interrupted, and you are very likely in the top 1% of successful people, or on your way there. We live in a world filled with more opportunity than ever before, yet few of us enjoy the lasting health, wealth and happiness that we desire. What prevents most people from succeeding? I believe it’s a lack of concentration and increasing distractions. Studying 1000s of people over 50 years show that concentration, from as young as 4 years old, is the key to maximum health, wealth and happiness.
Concentration is the key to success
Concentration alone is responsible for around 62% of all school results and up to 32% of lifetime earnings. Those who struggle to concentrate are up to 32% more likely to suffer from addictions, mental and physical health problems, live in poverty, commit crime and become single parents. They can end up compromising on their dreams and risk depression. Listening to the life stories of my patients over 20 years in the NHS, taught me that a lack of concentration is common and causes much serious health and social problems. I believe the one thing that we can do to prevent needless suffering and maximise wellbeing is to give the vast majority of people, who can easily improve their concentration through training, the opportunity to do so.

Training will improve concentration
I developed an evidence based concentration training program to help my nephew 14 years ago. It has since helped me, my children and 20,000 other people in five countries. It reliably and lastingly improves concentration which makes it easier to learn and do all the most valuable things that requires focus.
Dedicate yourself to the cause
I left the NHS in 2016 to devote my time to offering it to everyone through my company Smart Start Minds. We have since helped students from more than 20 local schools, some to catch up and others to get to the top. Results from a project at the Ark John Keats Academy School showed that 6-9 years old students who were trained, advanced by 7 months more than their peers in English and Mathematics during 3 months of usual teaching. Marné Reynecke, Vice Principal of Primary and SENCO at Ark John Keats Academy said “trained students became more focused and able to complete work on their own, produced better results, behaved better, grew in self-confidence and were happier.”
We also help adults with our Business Brain Accelerator that combines concentration training with award winning business skills training from Dent.Global.
Accept your mission
My mission is to give everyone the key thinking skill that will enable them to find and fulfil their true purpose in life because that leads to lasting health, wealth and happiness.
Well done if you made it here without getting distracted! If you are in the top 1%, don’t need training but would like to invest in a child’s future then please contact me.
