Understanding the frustration in the world


The world in which we live is filled with fear, frustration and anger. People all around us are living each day with a lot of negative emotions. As potential entrepreneurs, we need to look at this frustration and see opportunities for a business solution.


Now, not all frustration can be converted into a business solution,

but where it can we need to first identify all the aspects of this emotion. This can be done by asking the following questions:

  • What is happening?
  • Why is this happening?
  • Who is involved?
  • What could change?
  • What could be a better outcome to this situation?
  • What needs to change?
  • Who and what are the additional factors?


Spend some time in groups or alone, discussing or reflecting on stories of frustration. Using the questions above, start to describe the situation in more detail on a notepad or piece of paper.
