Step 6. FACE CHALLENGES OF THE DAY WITH A WELCOME SMILE
Your toe nails grow. Do you get grumpy about it? Your hair grows. Do you get grumpy about it? There are certain things that you take for granted. So you don't get grumpy about those things because they are just reality. Reality that you can't change you say "oh well, that's life" and you smile. Well, frustra are life too. There is no option. Even Donald Trump, or Steve Jobs or Paul McCartney or the Queen, all face frustra. You can see even some of them die from Frustra. So, please embrace challenge.
Too many people react to challenge. If they get challenged in any small way they run to the opposite place. When your toe nails grow, you don't run to the opposite place do you? You simply go get them shortened. It's not the end of the earth. So, if someone challenges you, or leaves you, or if your work doesn't promote you or a client criticises you, smile. It's just a toe nail growing.
If you can simply keep an open heart and mind during challenge you will be surprised at how fast solutions come. Most of our reactions to challenge are unnecessary. We jump, react and then get shocked that we have twice as many problems as we had before. Each attempt to fix a problem makes two more problems. If you simply do your morning practice connecting to nature, you will find that your problems will come and go without a whole lot of fuss. Try to stay quiet during times of challenge, be at peace with that challenge, let it come in go through you, do its work and leave.
This all depends on your trust. To trust frustra it is wise to get out every morning an do your Walkachi practice. Allow the universal forces to flow through you, not from you and this alone helps to keep your REALITY perfectly tuned to the Universe.
FRUSTRA - ALL EVOLVES AT THE BORDER OF CHAOS AND ORDER
"If you think your life is a drag and you hate it, I will not attempt to talk you out of your opinion. However, I think you can benefit much more if you change the object of your hatred. Instead of hating life, hate God. That was not a typo - you read it correctly. Hate God. Ironically, so many people love God but hate everybody else. The man who hates his fellowman and loves only God is no lover of God. "
For one who has conquered the mind The mind is the best of friends, But for one who has failed to do so His very mind will be the greatest enemy
Have REAL Expectations with people ... it's so much easier....
There is an image of the cross section of a tree. You will see thick dark rings, thick light rings and then you will see bands, thin bands that separate the rings. These are growth rings and if the tree could talk, it would, during these bands, cry out in pain and call for help. These bands are called FRUSTRA ... times in the essential growth of the tree when the weather outside the tree and the capacity of the tree to grow through those changed circumstances collide. By examining the DNA of the tree scientists have found that the DNA of the tree growth ring inside a band and the growth ring outside the band, changed. In other words, by working through challenge, the tree evolved. You evolve at the border of chaos and order so, push yourself each morning to get a deeper, closer, more powerful connection to nature through the power hour without throwing more time at it.
Realistically, if the coal face of your professional development is in the face of a customer, you are going to screw up. If your coal face of learning is in the face or your partner you are going to screw up. You are going to screw up because we all move through frustra to incompetence. I think it's better to experience that incompetence away from the coal face where screw ups don't matter, like with a coach, in training, in a small business that's not the end of the earth if it fails.
Use books, video, education and exercises to challenge yourself "offline."
