Frustration – I am sure at one time or another you have been frustrated, about your love life, home or especially work. So what is frustration really? At the time when we are in it, it feels like the world is against us and things are just plain hard.
But is that really causing us frustration?
What makes us frustrated is we know we want but it is not here yet, the job, the money, the recognition. And then we FOCUS on what we don’t have yet, as a negative.
“I’m so sick of ……” “I can’t believe they haven’t…..”
Sound familiar, yep me too. We have all been there.
Moving Forward = Mindset
So how do we move out of this place that we can see is not great for us, we change our mindset. Sounds simple right, and it totally can be, but you have to know how.
They say what we focus on grows, so with this in mind, think about what you have been focussed on lately do you really want that to grow? If I focus on I hate my job, or no one every appreciates me, do you think we will get what we want or more of the same.
You guessed it! More and more!
Break the Cycle Today
So let’s break the cycle and work out how we keep ourselves there even on a bad day.
2 simple things will get us there.
1. Set goals and plan how to get there.
2. Focus on all that you have.
If you are setting a goal to get that Leadership role, plan it out and put it on paper most importantly!
A goal not on paper is a dream not, something that will be reality in time.
Once you have a plan that frustration that someone else has control fades away because now, YOU are in control and YOU are taking action to your plan.
And focus on all that you have already to not only remained focused on what you want to grow, those amazing things in your life, but also to remind you just because I am striving for more does not mean my life is bad right now, it just means I know I haven’t hit my full potential yet.
Which is much more empowering don’t you think?
So go and make that plan, and write down the things you are grateful for today, and go be awesome!
