Practice gratitude. At the root of every frustration is dissatisfaction, which can lead to feelings of powerlessness. Being grateful, however, is the source of your motivation, creativity, and power. So redirect your thoughts, and focus on the daily opportunities you have to become the best version of you.
Identify the want hiding behind the frustration. There is an idea, a story—something you desire above everything else that is hidden behind your frustration. Your job is to unearth that idea and release its potential.
Do the unpleasant or tiring tasks without complaining. Success tends to revolve around the apparent magic of what appears to be insignificant tasks. It takes years of toiling in obscurity before reaping the rewards of one’s tireless efforts.
Immerse yourself into the minds and lives of those who have enjoyed sustained levels of success. Read & study books, watch videos, attend seminars and workshops, and commit yourself to executing the applicable strategies that can potentially yield similar success results.
The fifth step in turning your frustrations into successful outcomes is to follow your effort. Following your effort means finding a problem to solve. Successful individuals have one thing in common, and that is their ability to solve a problem in a manner that creates value for others.
