Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and it is up 35% since 1999. It is the 2nd leading cause of death for individuals between 10-34 years of age. In 2018, it was reported that over 48,000 individuals died by suicide in the U.S. This equates to one death every 11 minutes.
In 2020, the Covid-19 mandates made things even worse. Lock downs, school closures, and business bankruptcies forced many to contemplate their future.
Three years later and approaching 2024 things have not gotten better. The collapse of our economy, the US dollar, and the real estate market has many sheltering in place fearful of making a mistake that could have devastating consequences. So they anxiously await what they can't control and prepare for the worst.
Many individuals feel frustrated that they can't accomplish what they want in life so they quit trying. Others feel they can't get away from the things that cause them pain. In both cases, they are fighting against or avoiding the things that challenge them. But in challenges there are opportunities - if you know how to look for them. The few who are able to see past the challenge will find opportunities for financial growth and business expansion. They do not fear what is coming, they can't WAIT! It's all in how you look at things.
I was inspired recently to use a play on words that all end in "tion" that I thought might show a pathway away from frustration and help you move toward inspiration. This is what played in my head...
Frustration to Inspiration
Have you ever felt frustration from an irritation that turned into aggravation because of the limitations and speculations expressed by other's expectations? Then seek education that allows fluctuation of the application through contemplation and make preparation with others' cooperation and coordination using your imagination to achieve a variation of the adaptation agreed upon through communication and collaboration finding liberation from the frustration with motivation and inspiration.
When you find yourself up against a challenge instead of running from it or fighting against it try to use it to inspire you to find a solution. Notice, inspiration does not come when you are frustrated, it is a result of what you do with that frustration. It takes effort and commitment to press through frustration and all the steps that follow. You won't find inspiration by avoiding frustration.
