“All successful people learn that success is buried on the other side of frustration . . . You get through [roadblocks] by plowing through frustration, taking each setback as feedback you can learn from, and pushing ahead.” ~Tony Robbins
Today’s topic on this in-between-seasons Mind Bullet Monday is the significance of frustration as it relates to habit and goal achievement.
First, a little background and context. Circling back to last season, we focused an episode on Tony Robbins and his Keys to Wealth and Happiness. The first key is: “You must learn how to handle frustration.” Frustration is a toxic byproduct of pressure that can actually block our success.
What cause frustration? There’s other people, impatience, expectations, and a lack of control, among other things. But the only solution for frustration is YOU and your ability to manage and mitigate this negative force.
Viewed through the prism of goal achievement, when we’re frustrated, we’re dissipating our energy. Our attention becomes fractured and unfocused. Goals become harder to reach.
The irony here is that goal achievement itself is incredibly frustrating. So if you’re easily frustrated, prone to poor emotional control — and if you’re not developing the mental muscle to manage that frustration — you’re going to have a very hard time achieving your goals.
The better we get at managing frustration, the more energy we conserve for the things that are truly important to us.
Listen in for more on developing the emotional intelligence to turn the page, accept the situation causing frustration, and move on to continue on your path toward your goals.
