We all have dealt with laziness at some phase of our life. For example, in school, we used to delay our homework until the last of due date because of laziness. Or whenever we have to do some hard work we start to procrastinate it further.
It is very common because we are all human and laziness can only strike the living but when it becomes too damaging for our own good, it is high time to sit up and work. We all have some things to become lazy about and fall into the trap saying “it is just a bad habit, not a big deal”. So, to self-discipline, follow these clever ways to shake off laziness and be your own boss…
Break Down Your Tasks – We avoid a task when we realize that how hard it is to perform and by thinking that we are halfway there to become lazy. Instead of being upset even before doing anything, start breaking down your work into small sectors and make a daily life schedule. It will make your fear go away and help complete your task. This approach is not only for your daily tasks but can be applied to your life goals too. Just think about planning your future, then take actions and finally work hard to get there.
What You Can Achieve – Think about the benefits you will gain when you will overcome your laziness. And the achievements you can get by completing the hard work. Focusing on the difficulties of the work will lead to disappointment and discouragement. Therefore, being positive in these situations is a way to get you moving.
What You Can Lose – Now, come to the negative part. Think about the consequences of your laziness and how it will affect you if you didn’t complete this task. The important job which was given to you can make your promotion final but your laziness got in the way of your success. Thinking like this can also motivate you to work hard in life.
Learn From Others – Especially from the successful people around you. That is why having a role model in life is important. Just look at all the successful entrepreneurs, businessman and achievers around the world. They dream big and work their way to success. Always focus on the doers in life instead of the people who just sit back at home and become lazy to justify your laziness. Your existence is similar to a pebble if you are not working hard and overcoming procrastinating. You will find many positive people in daily life who can motivate you to achieve your life goals.
The Internal You – Sometimes ago when I was in my lazy phase, I used to wake up and think about the works I have to accomplish the whole day. And just by thinking about the list made me cringe. I started to skip works day after day and became a bad habit of mine, which then later made me the most depressed I can ever be.
Have you had the same experience? Did you feel guilty after dodging work? It is very common to live in depressing because of your un-accomplishment, which is why many people seek professional help or go to motivational speaking programs for some inspiration and discipline in life. I suggest that you start your day by thinking “This day is going to be fun and I have so much to be grateful today.” Just by doing this I noticed a huge change in me and you can too.
Laziness is a very normal thing in most people live but you just need to know where to draw a line. Sometimes you are allowed become lazy when you have done so much and become tired. Being lazy is also good sometimes just be sure that it is not becoming a habit.
