How to Overcome Laziness?

Before discussing the key topic, i.e.”How to overcome Laziness“, I would like to present a few Chanakya quotes stating his opinion about laziness.

  • अलब्ध्लाभो नालसस्य | (A lazy person cannot achieve anything.)
  • आलसस्य लब्ध्मपि रक्षीतुं न शक्यते | (A lazy person cannot defend his possessions.)
  • न आलसस्य रक्षीतुं विवर्धते | (The savings of a lazy person experience no growth.)
  • न भृत्यान प्रेषयति | (Lazy Kings fail to command their servants.)

There are two main disadvantages of being lazy. The first thing is that it does not allows you to attain what you desire and secondly it restricts your ability to grow.

In most of the cases the problem is not about having a vision, but is about having a mission for your vision. Also, it is not sufficient to have a mission, but to do what’s necessary for success of that mission.

How to Overcome Laziness:

The following points might help you in overcoming laziness. Have  a look…

Improve Your Health:

In most of the cases laziness is nothing, but the outcome of bad health. When we don’t have enough strength or energy to accomplish required tasks we tend to postpone, take short cuts, or leave the work unfinished.

The simple solution is to improve your health and with it the quality as well as quantity of work will improve for sure. The three major components on which you need to focus are diet, digestion, and sleep.

“No car will move an inch without fuel. Same is the case with our body.”

Break The Monotony:

This is not the case with all people but, few people simply appear lazy due to lack of interest or due to monotonous routine. If this is the case with you then try to figure out the ways to overcome your lack of interest. Also, do this for your colleague and for your employees.

Maybe you are in a wrong job or waiting for your dream job. Still, it will be best in your interest to put some decent efforts to survive the journey before you can reach your destination.

“Sometimes hard-way is the only way and sometimes there exits a scope for smart work. In both cases you will require to work.”

Overcome Anxiety and Stress:

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Our focus must be on the benefits and on accomplishing what’s necessary to acquire those benefits. You can keep on complaining about the bad situation, or you can accept responsibility and act. The choice is simple.

” Farming requires a lot of patience, planning, and hard work; just to harvest once.”

Only a calm and relaxed brain will help you most in the process of decision making. When you plan utilizing a stressed out brain the chances of failure rise exponentially.

So, relax for a while, plan, and WORK. Have a nice day!

      First thing, dont be in a confusion whether to continue it or to quit. Give a deep thought, what if this is not? Why am I hating this job? Then based on the result of many such self questioning, come to a firm conclusion. Make a trade of between your likes and hates with practical living – bread n butter. If the result says u shdnt quit, u shd motivate urself to love the work.
