The Power of Frustation
Believe it or not frustration has made a difference in my business.
” Your mess is your message”
Once you are willing to take a long hard look at your current situation, you will recognize your mess and begin to go through the process to find a solution.
Most people think that frustration is a bad thing, actual it isn’t.
The dictionary meaning of frustrate is to: make plans or efforts worthless of no avail; defeat or nullify.
I don’t know about you, but there where countless times during my business career were I planned several tasks to do. Such as; change an opt in form on my blog , create fan page tab or even just upload another WP plugin and things didn’t go quite the way I expected. The computer was wacky that day and my mission was not accomplished. Needless to say I became frustrated.
Why The Frustration?
1. My attempts to downloading a wp plugin etc. did not go the way it did in the video.
2. Spent time beating myself up because I did not get it right.
3. I Faced something new or unexpected.
Frustration is the Great Divider
Frustration will Change your thought process
– changes what you see
– changes your actions
What happens When You Get Frustrated?
Think of about a time when you witnessed a little boy playing with his building blocks.
The blocks kept falling and he becomes frustrated. At this point he can do one of two things.
1. Lay on the floor whine, kick, and scream
2. Stay the course until it’s done and demand victory
Same rings true in business. We get frustrated because there is some learning involved. Plus most people
expect to earn 6 figures overnight with minimal work.
Have you ever heard the term “pay your dues”?
Think about your job, you worked hard to climb up the corporate ladder. You attended Secondary school and earned degrees, you survived several supervisors, managers and directors. You might have taken several examinations to qualify for a leadership position or worked over-time (all the time) for a moment to prove yourself.
With that said, it took handwork, determination , dedication and frustration to earn the achievements you have. Furthermore, it did not happen overnight. You have paid your dues or have done your due diligence.
When we get frustrated the magic comes and within your frustration you begin the think like a leader.
– Only through frustration, you mind can come up with a solution
– Begin to take leadership actions
If you don’t believe me, I’ll prove it to you. Take a moment, stop what you are doing and look around the room you arecurrently in. What do you see?
I’m creating this post is my office.
– a cellphone

Edwin G. Seibels got frustrated while working for his fathers insurance firm and created the original file-cabinet so that he could organize documents in the office. His frustration lead to what is the standard in offices today.
