Frustrations tend to stem from our failure to attain our goals. Many other life situations serve to make the situation worse. All of these can be summarized into a few factors that affect almost everyone.
Lack of motivation has been linked to many of our frustration episodes. We always start out on a project with high energy, then it just dwindles. Our goals then quickly get shelved. We may take comfort in these reasons, but that will only be short lived. We also feel fear when confronted with the possibility of not just failing, but also of succeeding.
To stick with our plans, we need to remember the worthy compelling reason why we started in the first place.
Another major contributor to our frustrations is the perceived lack of time necessary to finish our projects. Most of us go through life being very busy, but we rarely focus that energy on the things that matter the most. People will always blame time for the things they did not do that are haunting them.
It is a common reason for those who lack the commitment to find solace in blaming time. Commitment would have made it possible to plan their lives in a manner that allowed them ample time. It is possible to achieve anything when you are committed and have a good plan.
For others, the issue if a lack of focus. We get distracted too easy. To have the necessary focus, you need to have a strong motivation. This agrees well with persistence and determination. You also need to be patient on your way to achieving our goals. Without patience, it would be easy to shift from strategy to strategy, without understanding which part needed correction. Reflection is key in all areas of our lives. It sharpens our focus and blunts out frustrations.
It is clear what things make us frustrated and keep us away from reaching our targets. These things also make it hard for our minds to stay on course toward our goals.
When you notice you have grown weary of a life that is full of frustrations, it is advisable to pause for a while and watch what path it is headed down in. You need to take away the parts that are heavy for nothing, and you will notice what has been causing you the most frustration. After it is lighter, you can focus your energies on the activities that matter, with enough motivation to see them through. Be patient, as life tends to throw curve balls from time to time. Consistency is the stone that grinds out the impossible. A good life full of joy and purpose is not a place that frustration has any power.
