Yes there are risks to rule breaking.
You may have been tempted to break a rule before in order to feel a sense of freedom or relieve some guilt. I know I was like this if I ever wanted to escape the punishment you could get for breaking the rules.
Some people find pleasure when they take a risk. By doing this, they may become addicted to taking risks.
Three of the riskiest acts a person could contemplate include:
1) breaking the rules in a professional setting (such as an institution of higher learning),
2) breaking them in the personal setting (between the boyfriend and girlfriend),
3) breaking them in a family setting.
If you don’t agree with certain rules of society and plan to break them – either in business or in your personal life, consider these five risks involved:
- The risk of alienating people you need or want in your life. Think carefully about breaking a rule that can alienate you from the very people who could benefit you and whom you love. For example, if you go against your parents’ wishes, you may cause them angst. Weigh the benefits and then act accordingly.
- Lose your job. Some rule-breaking may result in the loss of a job or position in a company. Insisting that you can work from home and get more done may alienate other coworkers who trudge to work each morning. You may also miss out on valuable one-on-one time with your boss or others important to your job.
- Expressing your opinion. Standing up for your values can be a risk that gives you great satisfaction and can boost your self-esteem. It may also alienate you from a person – or group of people. Beware of the consequences of your words and then do the right thing.
- Unqualified for the job you’re in. You may have gotten a position by promising that you’d be a fast learner and meet all expectations required of you. At some point, you may be overwhelmed by the amount of work or learning process that you didn’t expect. Know what you’re getting into before leaping into a job you’re not qualified for.
- Not taking yourself seriously. This rule needs to strike an equal balance. When you take yourself very seriously, you run the risk of others perceiving you as pompous and a “know it all.” But, if you don’t find the balance between being serious at times that require it and having fun at appropriate times, you may never be seen as the authority figure you want to be.
Breaking rules does have consequences but that’s just how it is, although people may not always expect them to be negative ones. Before deciding to break a major rule in a specific area of your life, weigh the positive versus the negative aspects.
