It Can Be Frustrating

Frustrate is an interesting word.  According to one dictionary’s succinct definition it means:  To prevent from accomplishing a purpose or fulfilling a desire.  And so, in life we can run into frustrating obstacles that seemingly are preventing us from achieving whatever it is that we want.

No great revelation in anything I’ve said, I’m sure.  But, here’s the point!  Whenever you’re being frustrated by life’s little bumps in the road turn things around in your mind.  Don’t just give up at the first sign of an obstacle in your path.

Answer the following question for yourself whenever confronted with adversity.  Do you see opportunity in frustration or frustration in opportunity?  Clearly, if you can train and discipline yourself to see opportunity in frustration you will inevitably achieve more of what you want out of life.

I know.  It can be frustrating to actually have to exercise some self discipline and put forth more intense  effort.
