From what I recall (I haven't readrepparttar 124002 story in ages!), there was a tiny little engine that had to make it's way up a large mountain pulling many cars of a train. At first,repparttar 124003 little engine thoughtrepparttar 124004 task was too big. But then it decided to give it a try.

Overcoming Frustrations

Written by Francoise Rapp

Life can be exhaustively frantic when we pressure ourselves to be viewed as successful and accomplished. But this places us under an amazing amount of stress and may lead to frustration if we set unrealistic and unachievable goals.

When we don't reach our aspirations -- whether in a career, financially or romantically -- our frustrations will materialize into irritability, anger, depression, withdrawal, self criticism and other self-destructive behaviors.

In order to avoid falling into such an unhealthy, endless spiral, it is important to place some distance between you and your frustrations and take a closer look at your life and accomplishments.
