Practical Ways and Means to overcome frustrations at work.

A strong disappointment overpowers the positive affirmations within you and everything related to your work seem frugal. Frustration comes when you fail to achieve your most coveted goals, when you are working under compulsion or if your job entails too much pressure without any productive results. Furthermore, if you are not mentally strong enough to counter corporate politics, excessive nepotism and unfavorable bureaucratic policies, then gradually, you become a victim of all these. Frustration also occurs when you consider the ambiance of your office, the quality of your work and the efficiency of your colleagues are not in par with your standard.


Here are some fruitful ways how to handle frustration and disappointment at office:


Focus on Yourself

You tend to become oblivious of your goal when you pay too much attention to others. Maintain a balance between yourself and your surroundings. Focus on your work and follow the right track to achieve your goal, instead of becoming despondent. Take active participation in meetings and official matters to express your opinions. This will keep you in the good books of your organization. Concentrate in your own work rather diverting your mind into the work of others. Sharpen your skills and potentials to climb up the ladder of growth. Introspect more on your present work profile and look for productive ways to achieve the goals of your life.

Keep a Good Company

You must know that frustration is highly contagious. If your co-worker moans constantly about his/her personal problems, then you are bound to get affected by it. Although, you have to mingle with diverse characters in a corporate sector, you can avoid mixing with frustrated people as much as possible. Learn to analyze different types of personalities and spend your leisure hours, amidst enthusiastic, professional and goal centric employees. People who toss their personal matters in office are actually the frustration inducers. Choose your friends carefully and engage yourself in discussions that make sense.

Visualize Positive Factors

Think on the reasons behind your frustration. No one has ever faced such a despicable situation where all means of getting out are blocked. Channelize your energy only in the positive direction. Draw a picture of your current profile and the positive aspects associated with it. When you are able to eliminate the negative traits completely, only then you can shrug off frustration quite effortlessly. This theory works wonders because frustration is also an outcome of negative emotions. Be positive and feel the positive vibes around you. You can also keep a note of such things and refer to them whenever needed.

Stop Procrastinating

Benjamin Franklin says, you may delay, but time will not.


This is what exactly happens when you keep your work pending. The load piles up, the deadlines end and you are unable to achieve your target. Procrastination has dangerous consequences at workplace. How? You tend to postpone your work just to escape from the hardships. This definitely fetches momentary pleasure but when you make it a habit, the burden of work gradually becomes humongous. The ultimate consequences are, stress, exhaustion, pressure and frustration. Therefore, try to complete your work within the stipulated working hours and the given deadlines.

Share Your Feelings

Frustration breeds anger and anger aggravates your health. If you keep your problems suppressed, then they will gradually take a toll on your health. Share your professional grievances with your spouse and loved ones when you are not capable of finding a good way out. You can also discuss matters that bother you with your boss. An effective communication also helps in overcoming frustration. Vent out your anger and re-establish self confidence and hope. Take a break from your work and spend happy moments with friends and family. Give time to yourself, read philosophies and self help books to know how to deal with frustration at work.

Always keep in mind that any type of adverse phase in life is temporary. Your attitude towards your life and the ways you practice to deal with those negative emotions, matter the most. Frustration is also a volatile emotion and it evaporates gradually when you cultivate patience, hope and positive thoughts. Likewise make maximum use of your leisure hours by playing games, exercising, meditating within the confines of your office or at home.
