Positive Direction

You choose your frustrations. And you can just as easily
choose to be free of frustration.

What is it that makes you frustrated? What kinds of things
bring on so much frustration that you can't get anything

Actually, nothing makes you frustrated. Frustration is just
the way you respond to certain situations.

Frustration is useful when you first feel it, because it
calls your attention to the conflict between your inner
values and your outer situation. But once it has your
attention, frustration has done its job, and it is then time
to let it go.

As soon as you feel frustration, ask yourself what that
frustration is attempting to tell you, and listen carefully
to the answer. Once you truly get the message, the
frustration has done its job and it falls naturally and
easily away.

By immediately understanding and appreciating what your
frustration has to say, you can quickly get beyond it. Then,
with a new sense of purpose and positive direction, you'll
be even more effective than before.

You know, I've never thought of it that way. I get extremely frustrated by certain things. Generally the same things repeatedly. You're right, I am feeling frustrated because I am supposed to pay attention and do something about it.

Generally, I just let the frustration make me angry and then try to calm myself down. Instead, I should be looking at how to alter the situation that causes such frustration repeatedly.

Vanishing fear

Your thoughts are what frighten you. Choose to change them, and the fear is gone.
