One Thing that Frustrates Me

Go after inspiration with a clubHave you ever experienced someone rolling their eyes at your idea? Maybe it’s not that obvious, but you know it when people, sometimes people that are close to you, have a subtle way of communicating that they think you are “coming up with another one of your big ideas!” Yes, this is one thing that frustrates me.

The problem is that we are not all the same. Some of us are good at seeing new possibilities. Others are good at maintaining conditions as they are. Neither are right or wrong, but the two personality types can really frustrate each other. In my case, I want others to be inspired by the possibility wrapped up in my fresh new idea.

One solution is to spend time around people that welcome new ideas. Some folks want to be inspired. They want to have a goal to shoot for. They are not willing to settle for one bad option, or two equally undesirable options, or a dull and meaningless status quo. To them a better idea is always ahead, and when they find it they will pursue it with all their strength. They will work hard for inspiration. Are you that person?

So does this one thing frustrate you too? Do people not see the possibility wrapped up in your dream? How do you cope with this? Leave a comment below. I look forward to the conversation.
