How A Clear Purpose Reduces Frustration

Have you ever thought about why Michael Jordan was so good under pressure? What about Wayne Gretzky? Michael Phelps was pretty good at beating the competition in a pool.

There are tons of examples of people who had a clear purpose and it catapulted them to success even when they faced adversity.

One of my favorite books is Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich.” That book was written in 1937, and it is still considered by many to be the best book for personal development and improvement. Mr. Hill spends a lot of time in the book talking about finding your “definite purpose.”

Do you have a clear purpose?

A clear purpose reduces frustration. It tells us what we need to do. It tells us what we don’t need to be doing. When you know your purpose then you realize what you need to be working on.

When you can bring what is needed to the table and leave what isn’t needed behind, you are going to get more done.

Take some time to sit down and write down on paper what your purpose is right now. Really think about it and put it in writing. Share it with a friend who can ask you about it moving forward when you speak in the future.

What do you want?

What is your time frame to do it?

What price are you willing to pay to reach the desired goal?

Do you have a plan?

Have you written a mission statement and defined a clear purpose?

Don’t wait to do this.

The clearer you get about what you are doing, the more likely you are to be successful. It is pretty tough to stop a person who knows what they are doing, why they are doing it and how they are doing it. Get a clear purpose and start moving toward accomplishing what you want.

    Thank you very much, the timing is perfect. For me, there are two kinds of frustration. One is being frustrated because things aren’t happening. That one is easier to overcome, that’s when you have to get down, and just grub it ( using a golf metaphor) just advance the ball. The second one is tougher, when you have put yourself in a position, where you are at the mercy of someone else, when you look at the time, and 3 house later ( 10 minutes have elapsed. Patience is not one of my stronger points. However like you say, keep your eyes on the prize. Also as it is written,” And this too, shall pass”
