And suddenly, that moment comes when you just don’t think you can take it anymore.
Tears start to well up in your eyes, you want to scream SO loud because you’ve never experienced this type of frustration.
You feel as if at any moment now your head and/or body might explode.
Don’t Let Frustration Get The Best Of You
Frustration is a lot like a pot filled with water on a burning hot stove. At any second it’s ready to boil over.
Yeah, I’d say I’ve experienced that feeling before.
Sometimes it’s because I feel like I’m helpless and alone. I want so badly to figure something out, but I just can’t find the right forum, the right resource, or the right expert who can help.
Sometimes it’s because I wish there was more time in the day because I don’t know how I’m going to accomplish the list of things I’ve set out to do.
Sometimes it’s because I thought I would be much farther along on a project, but then I realize that I’m nowhere near being finished.
Frustration likes a challenge
The battle against frustration is a tough one that we all face as human beings, and on a whole new level as Entrepreneurs.
Frustration is a creepy little thing that likes to hang around individuals who may not have the support they need to fight it off or who may not be strong enough yet to realize they can dodge it before it gets them.
Frustration likes a challenge, and so it’ll hang around those who are so driven by a passion or an interest that they’ll stop at nothing to find a way to make it happen. Yes, it will try and get you, too.
Don’t let frustration take over
Don’t let it.
For every negative thing that frustrates you, flip it on its back and make it a positive.
There is someone out there who can help, you just haven’t found them yet – but you will.
All we have is time, so don’t get carried away with how little of it there is, otherwise you’re missing out on the time you do have right now.
Reaching the end of a project is a small success – one of many you will reach over and over again if you keep working hard, so enjoy the journey you’re on and everything you’re learning along the way.
Just start. Keep going.
