the feeling of being upset or annoyed as a result of being unable to change or achieve something.
the prevention of the progress, success, or fulfilment of something.
If either of both of these definitions are pertinent to you, try embracing your frustration rather than allowing yourself to be overcome by it. Challenging your thoughts and energy will greatly improve your chances of achieving the goals you have set yourself.
Try the following:
- Set smaller, more manageable goals.
- Be honest with yourself regarding the time you allot to any goal you set yourself.
- Enjoy the journey – focus less on the end goal and set interim milestones.
- Take time off – regroup
- Use the feeling of being upset or annoyed as a motivating factor that eradicates being unable to change or achieve something.
Remember, smaller, more realistic goals will enhance your enjoyment of the process which in turn will become a motivating factor that will contribute to your success. So become frustrated, grab hold of it and do it!
