Dissatisfaction is one of the outcome whenever we are faced with a situation that we feel do not meet our expectation. It may begin with an uncertainty over an issue or concern and as it could not be solved amicably, then our mind may analyze the situation as being not beneficial to us and upon that conclusion, if we decide that we are not willing to forget it, then the feeling of dissatisfaction will occur.
It can happen to anyone and over just about any situation. Sometimes we are not dissatisfied over something concerning us but instead over someone else’s. By witnessing an event that has occurred to someone else and if we again conclude that the outcome over that event is not a win-win ending, then we may develop the feeling of dissatisfaction, too.
Feelings of dissatisfaction can impact us in many ways. While you are reading this and if you do feel that you indeed have some sort of dissatisfaction at work, do start finding out ways to get rid of it soonest possible. There can never be a better time.
How Is It Developed?
If you think you are right and you are not getting what you expect for being right, then you can easily develop feelings of dissatisfaction.
It is developed by the fact that we verify what we see, hear or read. It can be a composition of seeing,hearing and reading and sometimes we may think that we can even feel something or a situation is not to our expectation.
At the foundation of all this is the fact that we have the cognitive ability to make comparison. Think about this. If we do not compare, either with others or with what we knowldge we already have, do you think that you would know what is right or wrong, more or less, hard or soft, sweet or bitter and even fair or unfair.
So, for me, having the ability to compare can make room for dissatisfaction to exist. The following are several examples of how dissatisfaction can surface at the workplace:
Take a paper and write down what usually makes you feel dissatisfied? Take a good look at them and think again if they are worth your mental efforts to make yourself feel dissatisfied about. How do you now feel after doing this?
