What Do You Find Frustrating?

Now that we are at mid-year, I would like to start a thread with this question - what do you find most frustrating in terms of your personal development?

I'm sure that many of us, myself included, would like to progress a bit better by this time of year in certain areas of our life. For me, it would be meeting more compatible dates for example. What about you? What do you find that is most frustrating for you at this time? Let's all share as we will likely come to realize that many of us have very similar challenges in life.

      My most frustrating issue is letting someone drop a negative comment in my lap and instead of letting it die, giving it way more fuel and attention than it deserves. Then a few minutes later asking myself why, especially when I show my clients how to turn those situations around.

          Having too little time

          I had a period of my life where really didn't think much of myself, and now that I have a stronger believe in myself and my abilities I feel like like I have too little time to actually go out and work on all my goals.

          Like your own example of wanting to get more compatible dates, I also would like to meet someone who qualifies for a relationship, but I spend most of my spare time working on my business goals.

    I'm frustrated right now... because of the many things that i MUST do, which obviously are not the same things as i WANT to do... life is to short to get stuck on this kind of stuff... aaaaaaaarrrgh!

    Anyways, I know its about breaking barriers and stepping up to the next level, but the distance between the different levels... killing me slowly

      I think of instead of asking ourselves what do we find frustrating, we should be asking what can we do better to progress and move forward.

      Focusing on the negative won't bring upon any positive... instead we should focus on making change.

      Every "frustration" i've read here so far can be changed or is either out of your control.

      With that being said.. it brings upon two things

      1) Leave it alone if you can't control it
      2) If you can control it, change it and make it to what you want it to be.

    Exhaustion. I'm mad at myself because I'm exhausted quickly and have to drink megadose vitamin everyday to get me up for long hours. Maybe because I hate eating. I prefer to read book, writing articles, and learn something new than eating. It's a waste of time. In fact I'm very underweight.

    At the beginning of the new year 2011, I set up some goals and make a decision to realize them. As the time flies, so many thing come to my mind, and I tried to overcome it, finally I found I lost my way and even the worst. They make me frustrating in my future goal. In order to get a good position in my job, I worked harder than others, still haven't found the real job I'm willing to do and value myself

      Too many ideas and little time for implementation - then you do not take for work.

      Very frustrating are the changes in Google and jumping positions.

      When working on website position and Google does not update by your thoughts. Depressing are also slow periods in a given industry.

    Discipline.... Doing what you know you need to do. That's is the biggest one. I think too much time is spent in preparation and not in execution.

    Surprised to see that most warriors are having similar frustrations like i ma

    Thought i was the only one going through this

    I have too little time to execute on so many ideas

    Most of my ideas don't get the light of day because before i can do something i have thought of another idea much better than the old idea

    At the beginning it lead to have some many wonderful ideas how to make things better but i was broke

    i have since learnt to focus on the old boring idea until i made some money then move on to the next new exciting project

    Lack of time. I have to maximize the time I have available to me if I am ever to achieve my goal. I really wish I had the power to bend time! Aside from that, I have times where things are going really well and then I just stop. It takes a lot of effort to get back again. I would like to figure out how to keep the momentum going once I have it.

      Like many others here, I also feel the too many projects and not enough time scenario. This may suggest that we have to really hunker down and focus on just 1-2 projects until they are completed before moving on.
