or bad experiences.

A sense of humor is God's antidote for anger and frustration.
Quote of the Day
Did you ever notice how difficult it is to argue with someone who is not obsessed with being right?"
The fact of the matter is that anger is unleashed emotions. It is emotions
that you cannot handle and thus, the only way forward is to let out all
of those feelings of frustration...it's possible to handle all of your emotions
in a positive way, instead of letting anger get the better of you.
A.C. Drexel, Anger Management: How to Control Anger, Develop Self-Control and Ultimately Master Your Emotions
Nothing frustrates team members more than leaders who can't make
up their minds.
Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress.
During the day, you can go from task to task, to meet each colleague
and each person no matter how frustrating without losing your temper,
or showing frustration by being arrogant or ignorant. After all, it is only one day.
Words of Encouragement |
Change is gradual, trying to change too many things at once
is what leads to frustration and failure - instead, pick any one particular
trait or characteristic that you would like to change and start working
specifically on that.
Michael Andrews, Mindset
... a huge aspect of the significant life is to stop pretending that somehow
this separation of our personal and professional lives is not only possible,
but desirable. This, of course, is not true, and continuing our attempts
to keep the two distinctly separate often leads to discouragement
and frustration. The significant life is one lived with the recognition
that you are one person involved in multiple facets of your life, none
of which require you to be a different person for every occasion.
Pete Smith, Dare to Matter: Choosing an Unstuck and Unapologetic Life of Significance
Looking back at the times where I allowed my work to create stress
and frustration in my life I now realize what I thought was important
really was not. I am not saying you should not take your work seriously,
what I am saying is that we need to realize that life is all about balance.
Controlling your time helps overcome frustration and brings life into balance
and order, giving you the feeling of control and poise.
Bill Newman, Soaring with Eagles
You have control over you and that is the only person you can change.
When you realize this you will save yourself a lot of frustration.
Catherine Pulsifer, Change Yourself
One of my biggest frustrations was watching people not succeeding.
As a leader I had a passion to see people grow and develop.
I constantly was looking for ways to help people.
The other frustration was listening to people complain about
not getting ahead yet they didn't take any steps to help themselves
and their career.
Wings for Work
Our ability to tolerate frustration can be especially low when we are
under time pressure or have too many things to do, a significant feature
of many modern workplaces.
Russell Kolts, The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Managing Your Anger
Today means that you are able to be adaptive and not reactionary.
You know that when confronted by a particular challenge or obstacle
that is far more effective to look for a solution and not to be stuck
in the problem. Problems can easily mire you in a complaint cycle
where nothing is accomplished except frustration but searching for
solutions gives you hope rather than wishing for a way around or
through the problem.
So just what is so fascinating about blame avoidance? ... One is that having
become alerted to blame avoidance as a phenomenon, you start to see
it everywhere... blame avoidance is capable of being discussed
at all levels, from abstruse philosophical analysis of the nature of
responsibility to everyday conversations on the bus or in the bar that
swap battle stories about the frustrations of dealing with big organizations
whose systems and structures seem to be carefully designed to make
ordinary human communication with them as difficult as possible.
Christopher Hood, The Blame Game: Spin, Bureaucracy, and Self-Preservation in Government
All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find
with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not
change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus
off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain
your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making
another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't
succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.
I can remember when I worked for a large corporation, making a
decent salary, but no longer enjoying the work I was doing. I wanted to
work on my websites but I could not see any way to generate
an income that would support my family. After years of frustration,
I finally left my corporate job and focused on the websites.
With focus and perseverance, I was able to learn and apply many
different theories - some worked, others were disastrous, but I never gave up.
Catherine Pulsifer, How I Made My Millions
The more positive emotions you feel, the happier you are. On the other hand,
the more you indulge in negative emotions like anger and frustration,
the unhappier you are.
Maximilian Weigand, The Happy Life: Take Control of Your Emotions to Change Your Life
Do not be afraid to express your goal to the other person because failure
to communicate can be a major cause of frustration.
Jim Berry, Negotiating Skills
We all face similar setbacks and problems in life. How we decide to
react to what is thrown at us is what determines our level or happiness
Folorunsho Mejabi, Enthusiasm: The Secret of Success
We can make ourselves sick, when we try to predict,
And, we always end up in frustration,
Our minds are so set, that we tend to forget,
That it's God, choosing our destination.
Jim Thistle, There Is Never A Time, That's Not Now
Poems About Life
When there is no understanding to the problem, when your reasoning falls
short and in your mind; there is turmoil and unrest and such frustration
that no answer to your puzzling you find . . . think of quiet pools and
rivers in the bright sun, skies of blue and trees and flowers in the spring,
in the garden of the inner heart resplendent, there's a peace of mind
that answers everything!"

Customer service skills help you keep your happy customers happy,
help prevent customers from becoming unhappy and taking out their
frustrations on you, and help you deal effectively and quickly with
customers who are upset and unhappy.
Robert Bacal, Perfect Phrases for Customer Service: Hundreds of Tools, Techniques, and Scripts for Handling Any Situation
Customer Service |
If you are in a customer service role, your smile makes people
a lot more amenable to work with you and you will certainly find
a lot fewer people who will take their frustration out on you.
Smile Poems |
While all the other kids were out playing in the summer evenings,
I had to be in bed at six-thirty. They did that to discipline me, but for
me it was the wrong way to bring up a child. It gave me a feeling of
frustration and of reaching-out-and-trying-to-please. I found the quickest
and easiest way to do that was to make people laugh. I suppose you
could say it led to my wanting to be an actress.
In fact, what do you know that can be done without a bit of struggle?
Could it be acquiring an education, or learning a new skill, or developing
a successful business, or an accomplished painter, musician, or athlete?
Well, the answer is obvious; none of these were acquired without work,
effort, struggle, overcoming obstacles, perseverance, giving up free time,
or long hours of frustration until a skill was developed.
Byron Pulsifer, Flying With Struggle
