The Consequences of Doing Stuff You Don’t Like.

15 Jan


Hello all.
Most people think that doing what they don’t like is the right thing to do. They look around and see other co-workers dread the stuff they are doing, and since they dread that stuff in their minds it must be the right thing to do. I am here to tell you that hard work is necessary but working hard at something you don’t like has it’s consequences. It goes back to the idea that “For every action their is a reaction.”

Working hard at something you have a passion for is different. When you have a passion for something there is a different energy you bring to the table. That’s why when you complete something you have a passion for and it took a lot of work to get there the rewards are greater than if you didn’t like it to begin with.

The consequences of doing stuff you don’t like, is an inner feeling of doubt and struggle. When you are doing what you don’t like your emotions are generally telling you it’s time to move on. But your ego mind tries so hard to make it seem like everything is fine, when your inner guidance says otherwise.
This then leads to unhealthy relationships with other people because the more out of alignment you are with what your higher purpose is, the more you put others feeding of your negative energy.

So you can actually do stuff you don’t like, just to survive, but just remember that there are consequences to it. When you become aware of this reality, you open up to being more honest with your thoughts and actions.

“Every Action Has A Reaction”

    Thanks for the post! I know first hand what its like to do something you don’t like to do – I spent five years in a job where I was unfulfilled and unhappy. I recently made the decision to NEVER do anything I hate ever again, and swtiched careers! I’m now a Life Coach, and love what I do – and even though it takes a lot of work and is challenging at times, I know that my efforts will be rewarded and the feeling of fulfillment that comes from that is amazing! Every action does have a reaction – hope this inspires people to look at their lives a little closer to see what they’d like to say NO to live bigger, fuller lives!

    That is so true. I was just reading an essay called ‘The Abolition of Work” (I’ll blog about it in a minute). Bob is a little extremist, but one of his concepts is that we should take a page from children, and make work more like play. I mean, if we’re going to spend the majority of our adult waking lives at work, why shouldn’t it be fun?

    Love your blog. Stumbled 🙂

    Very true what you said about a bad move setting off another bad result!

    I am also reminded of the story of a kind smile from a stranger. It stopped a teenage gal from taking her own life. Kind actions are also “chain-reactive”.

    Also stumbled!

    Hi Baker,

    Very true that what we do has consequences, and the negative thinking that overcomes us when we’re doing stuff we don’t like for a long time can lead to results we don’t want. Love the picture – conveys the idea perfectly!
