Here we are going to help you to stop feeling stuck or frustrated and welcome you on this journey we are taking you on to dramatically improve all areas of your life. Maybe you’ve been struggling or feeling stuck in your life but you know that life could be better. I’ve struggled too and have found the answers to living a dramatically better life and we know you can too. Are you ready to enjoy more joy and happiness, success, health and energy and more love in your life? Well together we are going on a road-trip with you. We are getting on the road to a more Triumphant L ife.
Weekly, my son, Nathan, and I have at least one deep conversation about life. And no matter what is happening in our lives, we always feel that the conversation is really helpful. It occurred to us that we really should share these conversations with the world because everyone could benefit from them and we always tie back to concepts from our triumphant life online course and high performance success coaching. The incredible work that we do to help people comes back to sharing how we experience great success in our lives.
Last week, we were in Palm Beach, Florida, because Nathan was at racing school. We had such a perfect time and we felt so much joy and happiness we even said we wish we could put the happy feelings in a bottle and drink from it now and then when we needed it.
But we came back home and back to work and school and life began to happen again. And we both found ourselves feeling frustrated so we sat down and talked deeply about what was frustrating us and why.
We weren’t frustrated by the things that we out of our control really, it was more the things that were in control.
It then occurred to me that frustration is actually good.
When you’re frustrated, it’s because you know life could be better, and you want it so badly and you just feel stuck and don’t know why it isn’t happening as quickly as you would like. What does this do for you? It makes you seek answers and strive more deliberately to get where you want to be. This is very good.
What is dangerous is giving up or the feeling of indifference. If you simply just don’t care, what kind of effort are you going to put forth to improve things for your life? Not much if any.
I then decided that we can all go from Frustrated to Fantastic, and I looked up the definition of fantastic, to make sure that is what I wanted. And what I found was:
Fantastic: extraordinarily good, marvelous, wonderful, sensational, outstanding, superb, super, excellent, first-rate, first-class, dazzling, out of this world, and breathtaking. I knew that is exactly what I wanted my life to be like.
So think of frustration as a bit of good resistance, like lifting weights. The somewhat painful resistance actually builds muscle, which is good. Well, frustration builds your desire muscle; your desire to break free from anything that is frustrating you and get to a better place in life.
Begin to think of frustration as something positive and break free from any negative thoughts about it. Instead, feel excited about that feeling of frustration because you now know that it is energizing you forward to find answers. It’s energizing you to do what you need to do to achieve your dreams.
As T.F. Hodge once wrote, “To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles.”
So what are you frustrated about in your life right now?
What different thoughts could you begin to think about that frustration?
Are you able to change that frustration into fuel – to fuel your desire for a better life?
What is one thing you can do today to begin to move toward your dreams?
So continue on this road trip with us to bring your best self into the world and begin to live a more triumphant life.
