I am very lazy.

Hi Warriors!

I'm going to make a confession. I am a very lazy person, and that is why I keep failing. I always start projects but they end up dead. I have been better to things now, but I can still feel the laziness inside me. How can I get rid of it? How can I work effectively without other people/things disturbing me all the time.

I procrastinate and always end up disappointed. I would consider myself as a very clever person, I have a lot of knowledge and a lot of wisdom, but when you are lazy it doesn't matter.

Lack of motivation may be the answer.. I just don't know. Sometimes I feel like a failure, but this is mainly because of the procrastination results in disappointment -> Creating the feeling that you are a failure.

Help me out warriors!

    Life Advice:
    Find out what you are passionate about. Not what you like to do, what you really can't do without. Then do that! Everytime you feel yourself getting sluggish or putting things off, picture yourself (the self you are when you're not lazy) grabbing your head and shaking it voilently, saying "get going, IT'S CALLED WORK FOR A REASON!"

      That's true, Assess first yourself. Know what things you are good at.

      Your strengths and your best quality that will be your asset in your target goal.

      Know also your weaknesses, things that you lack of.

      After you know your weaknesses, make a room for improvement.

      ALso have a person that will able to see you all through out, will be your mentor in every thing you do, an advice or a motivator.

      I know there are people who can work alone, but as a start you need someone to guide you, maybe a friend closest to you.

    Develop good habits and patterns. Maybe start off slowly and list 1-2 short term goals you'd like to complete each day, try to pick things that can become habitual for you. Once these become second nature, add on more and more.

    Doing productive things makes the time you spend relaxing SO much more enjoyable -- always hold on to that. Good luck.

      Very wise indeed. Do you know any good tips other than the one you already gave, on how to create good habits?

      I agree...set good habits and daily rituals that you can stick to and build from there. Once you get into the habit of finishing a project, accomplishing a goal or milestone - no matter how small you will begin to condition yourself out of that laziness.

    Whether you think you are lazy or not you are right! What I mean is that saying you are lazy will make you a lazy person. You are taking poison by telling yourself you are lazy. It takes 1 second to change laziness. It sounds like you are capable of a lot, and its good you are confronting your laziness.

      I disagree on that. Some times it could be because of various aspects of our body nature effected by metabolism and immunity system. Consulting a dietician could be a start. Also try yoga. It will refreshen you up.

    Don't be too harsh on yourself, bro.

    Even a lot of hard-working folks are spinning their wheels! Find something you're passionate about (it's easier to be more hard-working and focused, when we're doing what we love --it doesn't feel like work). Identify your gifts, they come naturally and offer them to serve others. Forget making 5k/10k per mp, for now. 1k/2k per mo is feasible...

    It should also be something you can monetize. Then take a look at your environment and remove distracting elements or people, or start working in the Library, for sometime.

    Take baby steps. Focus on one business model. Ignore most of those magnetic sales letters (unless you're studying copywriting).

    Don't be harsh on yourself. Never, never give up. Some of the men we admire went through periods when they could be technically classified as ''failures''. But, failing is part of success.

    It's an asset that you think of yourself as being smart. You can leverage other people's skills, through outsourcing. You can stay on the conceptual level, while others do the ''practical'' stuff.

    I'd suggest you get Paul Myers report : Need to know. Study some of Rich Schefren and Jay Abraham's works. Key in into the concept of LEVERAGE.

    I wish you the best in all your pursuits.

    Lazyness is an evil spirit that you have to rebuke in your life through prayer. However, you have to be determined in whatever you do as nothing good come so cheap and easy. Be focused, have a plan and how you will accomplish those plans and never postpone what you are to do at this moment to another time. With God on your side, you will get rid of laziness.

    Thanks for all the good inputs!

    I will update this thread in a month, and tell you all how my "get-out-of-laziness-plan" went. Thanks!

    Another bit of advice: My work habits are directly tied to my physical condition. The more active I am (walking, running, working out) the better I am at maintaining focus, and accomplishing tasks.
