We all like to lay down in our comfortable bed or anywhere for that matter and relax, I mean who wants to work hard. You may be surprised to read this, but even the winners don’t want to work hard, but the winners are winners because they avoid these kind of temptations everyday.
Lazy people only get what is left for them by hard working people.
“Choosing between the desire of your heart and mind can be the most difficult battle, but if you are strong enough to win this battle, then you will not lose any other in your life.”
Always remember, you don’t get what you wish for, you only get what you work for. So, set a goal that makes you jump out of your bed in the morning. Have that goal in front of your eyes and remember,
“Success is not easy, and it is certainly not for the lazy.”
Our generation’s greatest enemy is: ‘LAZINESS’:-
Many of our readers have sent us a mail asking us to write on, ‘How to overcome laziness?’
Our ‘TEAM MOTIVATIONPEDIA’ also conducted a survey in which we found that laziness is the most common problem faced by today’s generation and the most severe as well.
So, in this article, I am providing you some very practical and efficient tips which you will help you overcome your laziness.
Get others to hold you accountable:
You are lazy because there is no one to hold you accountable for when you are skipping some important work. When you are held accountable by someone else for doing some work, then you have to get that stuff done. For example: if you are unable to grow your business or can’t start a new business because of laziness, then find a business partner, then you will not be able to make an excuse or get lazy because you know you are accountable to your partner.
Find a strong ‘WHY’
Whenever you feel tired doing a particular work or while working on your goals, just take a 5-minute break to remember why you started doing that work in the first place. Think of the future benefits that you will receive by doing that work, and you will get more energy to do that work. If you have a strong ‘WHY’ for doing a particular work, then you will never get tired of doing that work.
Set alarms in your phone and name the alarm on the thing that you want to achieve in your life. For example, if you want to build a muscular body and want to wake up early in the morning so that you can go to the gym then you can set up an alarm and name it, ‘Muscular Body.’ If you use this tip, then whenever your alarm rings you will get reminded of your goal, and you will feel more energetic.
