Harness the Power of Frustration

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

I read this today and thought that I just had to share! This is so true - how many of us finally decide to make a change when we've reached as much frustration as we can take?


Harness the Power of Frustration
By Jorge Cruise, LifeScript Fitness Coach

There comes a point when you have to say “Enough is enough!” Frustration can create a powerful desire for change – in fact, it’s one of the most valuable motivational tools there is. Think about how being unfit has cost you, whether in your career, intimate relationship or in regards to your family. How many activities have you missed out on because you physically couldn’t partake in them? How often have you stayed home because you felt too ashamed or embarrassed about your body? Be honest with yourself. Explore each and every aspect of your life in which inactivity and overeating has held you back. Then pick up a pen and let your dissatisfaction tumble out onto the pages of your journal. (If you don’t already write in a journal, start one!) Once you’re done, you’ll have the genesis of your success right in front of you. These are the reasons you need to change your life for good. Use it to propel you toward your goals. When you experience moments of doubt or start to question whether you really need to work out, go directly to this page in your journal and read it. Make the dissatisfaction work for you!

Your coach,
Jorge Cruise
