As part of my High 5 habits daily, I try to reflect on everything I am grateful for at the beginning of the day, this sets me up for filling my mind and being with gratitude, and I believe it attracts more of what you are grateful for. It's why being thankful is such a powerful habit.
I love Wayne Dyers saying - that transformation can happen in a moment if you change the thoughts you think and the words you speak, and it can happen in any given moment.
The emotions of frustration and confusion precede tranformational breakthroughs and it is something we should be grateful for and get excited about - here is why I believe why, and this is based on a personal experience for me.
Every time you are engaged in any kind of transformational learning, and are feeling either confused or frustrated, rather than give up, get excited about the fact that you are about to make a breakthrough. Our bio chemistry can sometimes trick us into giving up just before a breakthrough. By sticking it out, doing the work, following through. Not giving in to feelings of confusion or frustration, rather acknowledging them as a sign that a break through is about to happen, can be a powerful paradigm shift worth taking the time to understand.
I'm an insatiable learner and love the transformation that comes with it. Too often I've given up just before making an important breakthrough. What I have learned from sticking with it regardless of overwhelm (learn to take breaks, exercise, meditate), confusion or frustration, is that these emotions often intensify just before you break through to a new discovery about yourself and what you are capable of. So the next time you feel like giving up just before you get there, stop - ask yourself if you are feeling frustrated or confused - then thank God and get excited about transformation that is under way.
