Motivation Is Just Frustration On Steroids!
Most people try to avoid frustration as much as they possibility can, but many successful people have learned how to create frustration and then channel it into an irresistible force that drives them to the achievement of their goal. This article tells you how to do it.
There is an old eastern parable that tells of a man who seeks out a great guru in the hope that the guru will tell him how to achieve his goals in life. The guru takes that man to a river and asks him to kneel down and look at his own reflection in the water.
While the man is doing this the guru grabs hold of the hair on the back of the man's head and pushes his head under the water.
At first the man is calm and wonders what the lesson is, but soon he became aware of his need to breathe and he starts to get nervous, but still the guru holds him under. Nervousness soon becomes fear and fear quickly gives way to terror but still the guru holds him fast.
The man thrashes about trying to free himself from the water but the guru is stronger. Finally the guru pulls the man free of the water and says "when you want your goals as much as you wanted that first breath then you will have the answer you seek."
Learning to harness the power of frustration is a method to bring you to the point where you want your goals as much as that man wanted that first breath.
So how do you do it?
Let's say that your goal is to buy a new car. Here are some steps you could take to create motivating frustration.
Get brochures of that car and read them every day.
Find reviews on the internet and in magazines and read them over and over again.
Find all the dealerships that sell that car and go and sit in the car every day (I suggest rotating the dealerships so you don't get thrown out).
Find a car rental firm that has that car and hire it for a day or a weekend. Take your friend and family for a drive in the car and tell them all that your are going to buy a car exactly like this. They will help build your frustration by constantly nagging you about when your new car is arriving.
In short, do everything you possibly can to fill your mind with desire for this car and frustration for not having it and don't stop building that frustration until you have the car.
The principle behind this process is simple. Human beings are basically motivated by two different things; seeking pleasure, and avoiding pain. Anyone who has ever experienced a bad toothache knows that getting out of pain is the strongest motivator for producing immediate action. If the pain is bad enough you will do anything to stop it.
The technique of creating motivating frustration capitalizes on this principle. If you can build frustration to a high enough point then you will do whatever it takes to acquire your goal and end the frustration.
The technique of building motivating frustration works, but if it all sounds too gruesome for you and you would rather find more positive ways to achieve your goals then read my latest ebook and you will have the answers you seek.
