You may have heard me say, “When you get frustrated, it’s time to get excited. Something is about to change.”
Frustration occurs when you stop making progress.
Try as you might, you can’t get what you want. You give up. You may try again, but you’ll stop more quickly if you don’t reach your goal.
This process is known as Extinction – and it’s a good thing.
When you are chasing your dreams, anything that doesn’t deliver a constant reward will cause you to give up. What’s the fix? You must try something new. Success will reinforce the new behavior, IF you let the old behaviors go extinct.
Allow the process to happen. Don’t hang on to what you know isn’t working. That’s silly.
If you find yourself stoppped in your tracks, seek a new path to get the motivation you need to keep moving.
