Doing What you don’t like to do
“The secret of success of everyone who has been successful, lies in the fact that he formed the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do.” — Albert Gray, Insurance Executive
When you have done what is expected of you, do a little more! — Ted Camp
Develop Good Habits
Many prefer doing pleasant things that they enjoy, but a few will do what is needed to be done whether they enjoy it or not. Many flock to the easy and pleasant things, but it seems only a few remain when the pleasant things cease (John 6:66). Some with great potential never succeed because they prefer to remain at a comfortable level where they are unchallenged, while others with less potential succeed. Why? Because some are willing to do the things that failures don’t like to do. They may not enjoy doing it, but they realize that if they are to achieve their fullest potential they must do what is necessary whether they like it or not. They are guided by an inward desire to be a “profitable servant.” Have you noticed that those who are very productive are doing things that you don’t like to do? Does it surprise you that they also may not like doing it? You may say, “If they don’t like doing these things, why do they do them?” Because they form habits of doing things they don’t like to do, so that they can accomplish the things that need to be done. They have developed a good habit and have become its slave. Each God-given task accomplished gives them a warm feeling of doing whatever needs to be done to fulfill their mission and purpose in life. They continually work toward the end results!
