I am able to remain calm and at peace in all types of situations. This is a skill that requires practice, and I practice each day.
I have a much greater ability to deal with frustration effectively than most others.
I am a stoic person and realize that negative emotions frequently serve little purpose in today’s world.
Frustration is just a sign that things are failing to happen the way I think they should. Often, there is little I can do to change the situation. When the situation is beyond my control, I simply relax. I accept the things I am unable to change.
I seek equanimity. I try to feel the same way in all situations, which is relaxed and accepting.
I seek to be mentally alert and physically relaxed. I avoid allowing tension into my mind or body. When I feel any tension or frustration, I release it immediately.
Frustration can be a positive emotion, because it can mean that I believe I should be doing better than I am. Frustration is a sign that I need to reevaluate my options and consider a better approach.
I know that progress can be right around the corner when I feel frustrated. This understanding brings me peace.
Today, I deal with every frustrating situation with a smile on my face. I allow my mind and body to respond with calmness when I begin to feel frustrated. I remain calm in frustrating situations.
