I'll tell you why. That's price we pay for progress.
I use to wonder why I put myself through agony and frustration.
Well, I realized that although Internet has its definite pitfalls, benefits far outweigh cost. When I look beyond frustration to benefits, I can appreciate its value.
So often in our lives we miss beauty of forest because we are to busy focusing on giant trees. The giant trees are obstacles we must overcome in order to reach our goals.
If we focus on obstacles (giant trees) in our lives we miss out on all that life has to offer us. We fail to reach our goals because of obstacles that we see standing in our way.
The funny thing about obstacles is that they are not always as big as we make them seem. In fact, how you look at a situation determines whether or not it is really an obstacle. A situation can either be a stumbling block (obstacle) or a stepping stone (opportunity).
When faced with an unfavorable situation you must make a conscious decision about how to handle it. Will you treat it as an obstacle or will you transform it into an opportunity?
Just as I face frustrations in operating an online business (which was one of my goals), you too will face frustrations in pursuing your own personal goals. But frustration is price that you must pay for progress.
