Frustration can be directly linked to our inability to meet certain objectives. 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 start a project with all the intention of finishing it; then we lose the energy to keep going. Our goals will then not go anywhere in such circumstances. A lot of things can lead to this outcome, but it is the wrong outcome nonetheless. It is also frustrating to know there is a possibility of succeeding, not just if failing.
You need to have a great reason for doing something every time you start it out.
When others are asked why they are frustrated, they will say they are too busy to attend to the things they would love to. We spend most of our lives doing things that make busy but rarely those that would make us happy. People will always blame time for the things they did not do that are haunting them.
Most of the time, those who claim to be too busy simply lack commitment to their goals. Commitment would have made it possible to plan their lives in a manner that allowed them ample time. This is best accompanied by proper planning, where you give priority to the things that matter the most first.
Others are simply not focused. It is our trait to get distracted too easily. To have the necessary focus, you need to have a strong motivation. This works best when you are also persistent and determined. You also need to be patient with the strategies you have put in place. Patience is what makes it possible to soberly reflect on what you are doing, and allowing it time to produce desirable results, instead of trying out a tactic for a short while, then moving on to another when that one has not given you results fast enough. You also need to reflect a lot on what you have done. It keeps us focused and less frustrated.
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 declutter it and identify the things that are dragging you down. Then work on making it better by keeping things simple, be clear on what you want to achieve, and focus your energies on achieving them. Be patient, as life tends to throw curve balls from time to time. With consistency, you can achieve anything. A good life full of joy and purpose is not a place that frustration has any power.
