how to turn frustration into something useful

Have you ever been in a situation which caused you to become frustrated? I’ve been there, too, and it is not fun at all!
There’s good news, though. Our frustration can be turned into something useful. In order to explain this concept, I will give you an example from my own life.When I started my business, I couldn’t help but notice that there are certain resources that aren’t accessible to those of us who are blind or visually impaired. I have two choices: I could complain and become frustrated, or I can turn my frustration into an opportunity to learn to be more flexible and find more accessible alternatives.
However, you do not need to be blind or own a business to turn your frustration into something positive and much more productive. For example, let’s say that you are sitting in traffic, and you are going to be late for an appointment. In fact, there is so much traffic that you have to take another route altogether if you want to make it at all. Doesn’t that just frustrate the pants off of you?
Now, let’s look at your situation from another perspective. You were so frustrated by the traffic that you chose another route. Now, you just learned a whole new route that could save you time and money in the future. Isn’t that more exciting than remaining frustrated?
