The Frustration Factor
by Gwenn Bonnell
If you've ever been on a diet, counted calories, or stepped onto
a bathroom scale and dreaded the outcome - in other words if you're
breathing right now - then you've experienced the "Frustration
In fact, frustration is present in our life whenever we try to push
"outside the envelope." Changing careers, improving finances,
looking for a more satisfying relationship, even lowering golf scores
are challenges that present lots of opportunities for frustration.
In this newsletter, I explain how simply using EFT overcomes YOUR
"Frustration Factor" so you will enjoy the success you deserve!
Is The "Frustration Factor" Stopping You From Reaching Your
Goal Weight? (Or From Reaching ANY Goal)?
Use EFT to Overcome the Frustration that Cheats 95% of People out
of the Success They Deserve!
Most people experience frustration when trying to control their weight.
Frustration usually pops up when your weight loss program doesn't
match up with your desires.
Although common sense tells us that since it took more than two weeks
to gain the weight, it's probably going to take more than two weeks
to lose it all, common sense doesn't help us deal with the "frustration
We've all experienced frustration of one sort or another, even if
it's not centered around a weight issue. ANYTIME our reality doesn't
match our desires, whether it's in our career, our financial situation,
our relationship, or our golf score - frustration abounds.
Frustration is uncomfortable. We don't like feeling that way. So we
back off. Instead of breaking through the frustration, we back away
from whatever is causing it. We back away from the weight loss program,
the career change, the new relationship, the new golf stroke.
To avoid frustration, we might stop trying anything "new"
altogether. Yet we still expect life to improve.
And if we do summon enough courage to try something new, the second
we start feeling frustrated, we stop. So we'll jump from one diet
to another, from one opportunity to another, always stopping before
making any real progress.
Unfortunately, spending life trying to avoid anything uncomfortable
actually leads to a lifetime of discomfort and regret!
Whether you are stuck in a "rut," or always trying the latest
fad but never sticking with one thing long enough to be successful,
EFT will help you overcome your "frustration factor."
EFT: THE ULTIMATE "FRUSTRATION FACTOR" ELIMINATOR
First, I'll explain a special "Emergency" Tapping point
that releases frustration on the spot.
Then, I'll relate a "Special" EFT Procedure that includes
points specifically related to frustration and impatience.
Next, I'll list Standard Setup Statements and Reminder Phrases to
use with the EFT Basic Recipe or the Shortcut Sequence to release
Finally, I'll cover Advanced Setup Statements and Reminder Phrases
focusing on breaking through the "Frustration Factor."
Emergency Tapping For Frustration Use this to quickly "take the
edge off" frustration, no matter what the cause.
* Tap on the Outside Edge of the Eye point, take a deep breath, and
repeat, "I love myself and accept my frustration."
* Take another deep breath and repeat, "I allow myself to let
go of my frustration."
* Breathe deeply, keep tapping on the Outside Eye point, and repeat,
"I let go of my frustration."

love and accept myself."
Then tap on the following points while repeating "This Frustration"
at each point:
2 . Eyebrow
3 . Outside Eye
4 . Under Eye

STANDARD SETUP STATEMENTS AND REMINDER PHRASES FOR FRUSTRATION

beginning tapping at the Top of the Head point and ending with the
Under the Arm point, described at http://www.eftslim.com/shortcuteft.html

ADVANCED EFT FOR FRUSTRATION
When you start feeling frustrated, instead of putting your attention
on how to get away from the feelings by avoiding the cause, focus
on ways to solve the problem, overcome the obstacle, or push through
to the other side.
SETUP STATEMENT: "Even though I feel stuck in my life and I feel
frustrated with my attempts to improve my situation, I choose to STOP
looking at frustration as a source of pain, and START looking at frustration
as a signal that things are about to change for the better!"
While Tapping, alternate Reminder Phrases:
(CR) Frustration is not my enemy.
(EB) Frustration is my best friend because it's telling me what's
not working in my life.
(SE) This frustration is a signal that something must change.
(UE) I choose to take advantage of this opportunity for change.
(UN) I choose to use the energy of frustration for positive change.
(CH) I choose to completely break through this frustration.
(CB) I love breaking through this frustration.
(UA) I love changing for the better right now!
Continue with a new Setup Statement: "Even though I still have
some of this frustration, I've been through this process so many times
in my life and until now it's always been in vain, so I'm skeptical
about being able to change right now, that's OK, I realize that even
if change doesn't happen as quickly as I want, I choose to have patience,
persistence, focus, and faith in the process."
While Tapping, alternate Reminder Phrases:
(CR) Completely over this frustration.
(EB) Choose to change frustration into patience.
(SE) I love having patience because I know the process WILL work for
(UE) I love being patient with the process.
(UN) Completely releasing all this frustration.
(CH) I choose to change this frustration into persistence.
(CB) I love being persistent because I know it will pay off for me
(UA) I love the new persistent me.
Continue tapping, (back to the top of the head): (CR) Remaining frustration.
(EB) It's just a block I can easily break through.
(SE) I love breaking through my frustration.
(UE) Staying focused on my goal will break through all my frustration.
(UN) It feels so good to be focused on my goal.
(CH) I choose to have faith in the process.
(CB) I love the new me, having faith in the process.
(UA)I love having faith that I will achieve all my goals by breaking
through any frustration.
Of course, it's always best to put the Setup Statement and Reminder
Phrases in your own words. These are guidelines for you to follow.
If you easily become frustrated or impatient, use EFT BEFORE any situation
where frustration naturally occurs. Although you might still experience
moments of frustration, the intensity will be lower and you will feel
