Finding my purpose seems to be inevitably linked to doing some things I don’t want to do. I must in order to achieve what I do want.
“The people who succeed in life are the people who are willing to do what they don’t feel like doing.” -Rick Warren
When I think about it, I’m not sure how much I live as if this were not only true, but crucial to discovering my purpose. If I know I must do some tasks which I will not like doing, why then do I avoid them like the plague?
Usually it’s because I forget the goal. The goal is to bear the discomfort for something which I do want. Finding my purpose, changing a habit, etc.
When I lose sight of the good, the discomfort becomes unbearable and I bolt.
Can you make yourself do things you don’t want to do? What helps you keep the goal in sight?
