Work through the frustration

When you feel frustrated, what you’re feeling is your intense desire to make things better. Instead of fighting against your frustration, channel it in a positive, productive direction.

Frustration happens when things are not the way you want them to be. And because of that, frustration is a powerful precursor to achievement.

When you’re frustrated with the way things are, it can be tempting to give up. After all, it’s often easier just to live with life’s shortcomings than it is to make improvements.

But if you choose to give up, you’re letting go of a powerful opportunity. In your frustration there is great energy, and that energy can be directed to truly make things better.

To tap into that energy, take focused, purposeful action with the highest of expectations. Work through the frustration, moment by moment, bit by bit, and get yourself to the achievement that’s on the other side.

Frustration activates a powerful energy within you that you can use for positive purpose. Feel the frustration, harness the energy, and create the value that’s there for you to bring to life.

— Ralph Marston
