Why do I get frustrated so easily?
What can I do about it?
Is all frustration bad?
In this episode, I answer those questions by diving into the psychological process of why we get frustrated and tell you how to use frustration as a tool to be more productive.
Why do haters hate? The answer lies in human needs psychology.
When we understand why people do what they do, we are less likely to have overwhelming emotional reactions or have our emotions consumed by negative energy.
We all strive to be more, and we all strive to achieve significance. However, when some people don't feel significant enough on their own, they may look to tear you down if they perceive you to be more relevant or significant than them. This may result in you unconsciously avoiding success or limiting yourself just to avoid being a target! Don't let this happen to you.
The words "motivation" and "inspiration" are frequently used together but often confused for one another. There is a relationship between the two, but they actually play very different roles in terms of your effectiveness and achievement. Do you know the difference?
In this episode, I'll explore, elaborate on, and define the two terms, and inform you about how to use inspiration to make the shift from being externally motivated, to being internally driven.
Do you have an ultimate goal you are working towards?
Are you waking up each day and investing in future rewards?
What are the outcomes you are looking to achieve?
Why are you doing what you're doing each and every day?
These are just a few questions I challenge you with in my latest episode on YouTube.
Today's episode of DISTINCTIONS is on the difference between partying and celebrating. My intention for distinguishing between these two terms is so that you can apply them and transform the way you reward yourself and increase your effectiveness.
When you intentionally celebrate you can reinforce your accomplishments by rewarding yourself with a party.
Doing this will create associations between hard work and celebrations, and over time that gives your brain an incentive to more.
The real key here is to ultimately be able to first transform regular parties into celebrations with an intention, and then structure and schedule those celebrations to serve as a reward AFTER you get your work done. That part is key. It’s called the Premack principle, which I discuss in detail.
