Frustration, a valuable trigger to stay focused

7 years ago

Is frustration a bad thing? Is it something, which should be prevented or do the involved emotions try to tell you something?

Psychology explains the concept of the ‘fight-or-flight-reaction’ as a protection mechanism of our unconscious or subconscious mind. It has to do with the production of norepinephrine, a type of hormone, which greatly effects your emotions. It is a valuable hormone, it gets you out of bed in the morning and makes you alert. Stress, worries will increase the production of it to make your ready to act and deal with the situation.

Paying attention to the emotions should make you look closer to the reason behind frustration and points out the need for someone skilled to be involved in solving the issue. The question emerges if this will be you? This is not about your skills and competences. It is about your purpose. If solving the issue will distract you from your purpose it is time to flee and refocus. If it doesn’t, fight and gain results!

It is time to really listen to your frustration and deal with them.
