Frustration can eat you from the inside. It winds you up and makes you feel like you are not in control of the situation. Not only does it suck the energy out of you, but it distracts you and steals your time.
There are several causes of frustration, and each one has its own impact on people. The more invested they are in others, the more likely are they to experience frustration.
What can you do then?
Well, sometimes, frustration can be avoided if you look at the situation from a different perspective. It can actually be a positive experience, giving you an idea of how things can be done or how you can work differently.
Dealing with frustration could also mean gaining the power to keep on going forward. However, if you end up going in circles, frustration only leaves you feeling mad. Your mind will be foggy, and you won’t be able to think straight. If you are already starting to lose control of your emotions, then it’s about time to get...
Have you found yourself procrastinating lately? It might be comforting to know that procrastination isn't something that only humans do. After all, Newton's Law of Motion states that anything at rest will remain at rest unless compelled to move.
If the entire universe is procrastinating, how do you determine the causes of procrastination within yourself?
You tell yourself you need to be working. Your thoughts wander about what to eat for dinner or when you can get out of the house to pay the bills. You stop to check your social media accounts and perhaps even chat with a few friends.
Procrastination is not just about pushing back work. It could go beyond, affecting the other parts of your life.
In the end, you regret all the time you wasted putting off something that you could have already completed. Sometimes, the time runs out. The opportunity that slipped by makes it all the more...
Have you ever wondered how other people deal with their problems? Any professional who has found success in what he does follows various motivation methods. Still, one thing is true for all: they have a mindset of finding the positive within the negative.
Rather than seeing the problem as a burden to their growth, it fuels them to become more. They turn their challenges into opportunities for learning and improvement. In a way, they are left to become better versions of who they were before the problem came along.
This may seem like a simple case of mind motivation, but it comes with several benefits.
First, it reduces the stress that comes with the problem because it is viewed as a learning opportunity.
Second, the problem becomes less intimidating because it is viewed from a more positive perspective.
Third, it allows you to think fast on your feet. Instead of wallowing in sadness, you learn to deal with the problem head-on.
Fourth, it helps you to...
Do you have a fear of being left behind? This fear happens every year to practically everyone. New Year's resolutions rear their ugly head, and you try to set your yearly goals, but you already feel like you haven't accomplished the goals you set for this past year. With this world based around productivity, there is a constant push of needing to move and do more. This feeling makes us feel like we are already way behind, even if we aren't.
Whenever you wake up in the morning, do you feel the slightest touch of anxiety? Do you feel the need to get up and get moving on your tasks? Do you check your mail and social media messages before you actually get out of bed?
When you're feeling behind in life, you start your day early and deal with a lot of emails, work tasks, household chores, and other things just to get ahead. With your busy schedule, you forget to take a pause and enjoy the day. Before you know it, it's nighttime.
And although you have accomplished a lot, it still...
There is no denying that you have your own ways of getting things done. You're comfortable in your techniques and may have spent years perfecting them, so whatever it is you're doing almost always ends up working out correctly. However, you've grown afraid of experimenting or shifting your perspective because you're scared that something might not turn out well. When you're stuck within a certain mindset, you don't grow or develop. You may be hindering your career or personal growth if you're too afraid to make changes, no matter how small.
Whether it is performing a task, starting a conversation, or doing an activity, a small change in mindset or action can make a huge difference. What does it mean to make a shift?
The shift is opening up to possibilities. It is warming up to something new. Making a shift in mindset or action could help open your heart and mind to trying out something you've not had the chance to try before.
Making a shift may not sound too...
Everyone wants to be liked and loved. People want to be appreciated for what they do or for their intelligence. Others want to show off their good nature or their natural speaking ability.
While everyone wants to be accepted, it can be quite tough to teach oneself how not to care about what others think about them. Sadly, when you want others to like you the way you want to be liked, you end up giving them all the power over you. You start to rely on them for self-acceptance. Their opinion begins to play a pivotal role in your success as a person. That is where the vicious cycle begins.
Perhaps you, too, have wondered how not to let people get to you. When you begin to believe that other people's opinions or impressions of you is all that matters, then telling yourself not to care becomes more difficult.
In wanting to be accepted, you end up losing a part of who you are. When you continue to worry about what others will say, you end up seeing only the reality that...
One of the basic human needs is to connect with the people around them. While it may seem simple, the act of building social connections does not come naturally. It takes a bit more effort to establish good relations with others.
How do you make friends? The first step is to express your interest in getting to learn more about others. Sometimes, people don't become successful at this because they are too busy building themselves up. They strive to make others interested in them.
The truth to successful human relationships is this--you establish a connection with others if you show interest in getting to learn more about them. Remember, people don't care about how interesting you are. They are concerned about how interested you are in building connections with them.
Everyone wants to connect with people, whether they are an introvert or an extrovert. These connections can help you with achieving goals, industry, or sharing...
How do you start a project and make sure that it gets done? The importance of time management could not be emphasized more, but it is often overlooked.
It is easier to set and achieve ambitious goals when you can consistently dedicate an hour or two to it every day. But if you have more responsibilities in your hands, this task can be challenging to achieve. It seems like everyone is making no progress on their goals, and this fact can be quite depressing.
How do you break this cycle when it comes to dealing with your biggest goals? More importantly, how do you take it on with a more counterintuitive approach? There is no need for the day to come when you would be free from doing other tasks. Instead, start by giving it 20 minutes of your time each day.
People say that with the right time management strategies, you can accomplish anything you want. But why is it easier for...
Hey, my friends! Here I have actually 4 things you should know about the Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse happening on June 5th.
I kept my standard title structure “5 Things” — because the 4th thing is so important.
Enjoy the read, my friends, and I wish you a powerful and transformative Full Moon experience!
One of my dear friends, Ella, spent many years serving her community as a nurse practitioner.
Like you, she eventually found herself in the whirlwinds of change stemming from a spiritual awakening.
We hung out in Sedona this weekend, and she was telling me that she hasn’t been working as a nurse in years (I actually knew this).
She told me that she was recently debating whether to renew her nursing license or not.
Her logic was as follows:
“It makes a lot of sense to hold on to this thing.”
“What if I need it in the future?”
BUT . . . every time she attempted to complete the...
Changing your behavior always brings about the hope that things will be better. Choosing to build positive habits is always a good start. But then again, building on a new practice is often the most challenging step to take.
The formation of new habits opens your mind to new perspectives, but it also presents itself as a challenge. Knowing that you need to instill new, better habits is always a good start. But implementing these changes is another challenge on its own.
The familiar challenge people are facing is the beginning of building that new habit. It's too hard to do. You look for motivation to go through it, but then it's never enough. Soon, motivation fades.
You tell yourself you need to focus, but willpower alone won't be enough to see you through too. There will be times when you are tired, and you'd be feeling weak.
Then the question is, how do you build a good habit?
The best way to build a good habit is by telling yourself you...
