BG Chap 18 - Characteristics of one fixed in proper renunciation

The intelligent renouncer situated in goodness, has no doubts about his work, and he neither hates uncomfortable duties nor prefers comfortable ones. He does not hate that which gives pain, such as taking bath in the winter. He is not attached to that which gives comfort, such as bathing during summer heat. He is firmly fixed in goodness, has steady intelligence, and does not doubt that performance of prescribed duties under difficult circumstances will produce knowledge. A person in Kṛṣṇa consciousness or in the mode of goodness does not hate anyone or anything which troubles his body. He does work in the proper place and at the proper time without fearing the troublesome effects of his duty. Such a person situated in transcendence should be understood to be most intelligent and beyond all doubts in his activities.
