Shield Yourself From Frustration

We all have bouts of frustration caused by different events that occur in our day to day activities. Frustration can escalate into a very stressful episode if not defused by your thoughts and actions therefore, you must be prepared to engage your thought process as soon as an event occurs. Depending on the event you can be prepared to act in a number of ways but it all starts with your immediate thought process.

If you meet up with someone who upsets you, try to stay calm. Think before you react. The object is not to add fuel to the fire since this will only heighten your own frustration. Excuse yourself from the situation using a mild answer rather than a harsh comment. You will be the better person for walking away.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~ Herm Albright

If you are working on a project that needs to be completed and things are continuously going wrong, stop and think before you react or you could make your situation much more difficult. Turn your back to the project and walk away to think – breathe – and come up with a new angle of attack. If you push when frustration is on the rise your stress levels will also raise along with your blood pressure and anger, this leads to explosive reactions.

Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.~ Zig Ziglar

For every situation the results are the same – Think before you react so you can shield yourself from further frustration.
