Default 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!"

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.

I try to see being lazy not as that bad, It cane make you get more effective.

I started projects and when something came that was taking to much time longterm I stopped ore went to the next Project ore just procrastinated.
Know I focuss on the things I like doing and outsource the rest to high quality proffessionals each in there on field, So my projects are getting done.
Work hase do be done but it doesn't hase to be by you and sometimes others are even more skilled at certain ereas as I found out.

Try to find the key steps make a plann choose which step of the procces fits you best and outsource the rest to proffessionals.

Work Smart and hard

Just my 2 cents

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.

Goal setting is very important when it comes to overcoming laziness. When you start setting goals that are important to you, you become more conscious of your actions. Everything you do from this point on can make or break your dream.

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.

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.

Thank you! Good thinking patterns lend way to good behavioral patterns (aka habits). A positive attitude can be your best friend, maybe try this: think daily about the good things that you've experienced and are grateful for, then think AND write down the things you can do to keep these great things in your life. Usually, you'll list some productive stuff. Then, wake up the next morning and do that stuff. You'll feel good, then think good, then wake up and do more good.

One of my favorite books about this sort of thing is Marcus Aurelius' Meditations. Of course, he goes into a lot of other things, but one of his back-bone arguments is that good patterns of mind lead to good habits. In general, it's a really awesome book about stoic philosophy that ties into the "web-like" nature of life and how we're all connected beings. I could go on and on. ;P Thanks again and good luck!

Default I am very lazy.

I think if you get in touch with your inner self and like who you are. Say "I am very productive in what I do" write it and say it daily, find your passion for what you like to do then Begin and believe in yourself and what you do. Don't listen to negativity from your innerself or anyone only positive thoughts and sayings. Negativity only belongs on a battery!!!

Laziness the bane of all man kind if there was only some sort of pill. Maybe thinking of a different problem/solution there. Also would it be lazy to take a pill to cure laziness?


I think the only cure is hard work. Achievable targets and a good mental attitude. I am also doing battle with the foe that's name is lazy. I am trying to change my whole life outlook, one small thing at a time. For example I could do my chores now or later, Lazy man does them later or not at all. Not longer lazy man does stuff now.


Well that's my take on it anyhow.

An easy way to deal with procrastination, go to you-tube and find a video about EFT - emotional freedom technique, look for Brad Yates.
Find a session about goals or motivation, and just do it.

I have tried it and still use it, and it works.

It takes about 10 minutes - just do it, and see the results.

I wish you great success :-)

Laziness is awful, you end up not achieving your potential, I believe each individual has a great talent if we can only take time to identify what it is, I would advice you to identify what your talent is and focus more on it. I identify with you I lost so much time and money due to laziness. The advice you have received above is more than enough just change your attitude and only do what you can do , what you cannot delegate and you will be on track!

Hallo my friend,
Thanks so much for being honest. Many are not honest as you are. I tell you the truth, i feel you. I have been in the same shoes as you are in for the last four years since i joined college. I had not known that i had this problem earlier on, maybe because in high school and primary, we were subjects to follow the set rules and schedules, and beatings and punishments, when we did not do according to the simple set rules and procedures.

in college life became different because i now had to take charge of my own life, and too much freedom was at my disposure.

Let me tell you, i have done everything possible to get the solution of this problem, but now i can see light at the end of the dark turnell merely because i accepted i have the problem, i shared with a few trusted friends, i reseached from books and internet, i sought counseling from a counselor and spiritual help, i prayed to God since i am a committed Christian, and trust me, God and the Spiritual authority revealed to me that my problem was lack of disciplining my body. I always don't want to force my body/ flesh to do what it is supposed to do, but i want to please it, yet it is the graetest enemy of man, as the Bible quotes. You can try to write shedules, and learn discipline, i was too hard on myself, because i wanted to improve, but dont be too hard!

Begin with baby steps and you will move 1000 miles. A journey of 1000 miles begins with one step. Congratulate yourself for every step forward that you make. Make a list of things you have planned to do for the next day; and when you accomplish tick and tap yourself and tell yourself you are doing graest!

Sit down and find out why you exist and know you exist for a purpose. You exist to make a difference in the world. God created you for a purpose, that no one else can fulfill apart from you. You are great! let not the devil deceiveFind you! find your role in life and what excites you to do and you will be motivated.

yours,
Janfav

It is all about what you THINK about yourself.

When you hold this belief that you are lazy, you simply become what you think about.

However, laziness comes because of lack of motivation. When you have a project, it ended up "dead" because you was not persistent enough to continue it.

It is most likely you were focused too much on the money, that's not going to help you do something for long periods of time (like 5-10 years). Because as soon as you get the money out of that project, you are going to lose interest very quickly.

I did this mistake 2 times in the past. I went to great markets with huge profit potential, but simply I was not interested on the subject, and as soon as I build the entire thing, I lost interest, and completely neglected it.

That's the price to pay!

So if you want to overcome the laziness, the procrastination and the weird feeling of "i do not feel like doing this right now" you want to make a list with the things that you want to accomplish. And a list of things you want to avoid.

In each of those lists, write what you are going to accomplish if you finish that project (example: being even more lazy). You are lazy now, but perhaps you have this desire to be even MORE lazy, so set that as a goal :-) and attack the laziness with a laziness!

And write what you want to avoid, if you do not finish that project. You have to investigate your fears.

A fear is the most motivating emotion that can MOVE YOU away from what you do not like. So see what you fear or going to lose along the way if you do not work on your project.

Chris D.

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.

Failing is not a bad thing, but constantly failing is a matter of concern. My advice to u will be to take a short break from ur schedule. Think upon ur strategies in a new manner, and try to fill the loop holes which u find.

The way to success is through decisions and actions. You need to listen to some motivational tapes so that you are inspired to stop being lazy and take action!

Tip Re: I am very lazy.

If you had problem because you are lazy and you always just started a business and not continue it, your solution is hire a Virtual Assistant and the works will be manage by your hired VA's. You can try it maybe this can be your need.

Get a tattoo done on your arm saying "I'm Lazy, wake up wake up and get back to work!" So every time you feel lazy, just read it and you'll be charged up!

Nah just kidding! Try Yoga and meditation, that might work for you.
Or perhaps make a tight schedule and a To Do list and dedicate yourself to finish it anyhow, no matter what!

I actually do work every single day now guys. Thank you so much!

I still have problems though, but I see results and that keeps motivating me. One of the problems is that I still have trouble waking up in the early morning. I do wake up, but I fall asleep again. Do you have any ideas on what to do?

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.

Choose the this day to be hardworking! You can change your future blueprint.
You are already facing the issue - good start; note the consequences and what you are losing if you stay put. Now replace that by taking actions - you need that by planning your day and creating a list of tasks, and tracking your progress. Connect with people - share your plan with them, and be accountable for delivering the results. Hope this helps.

Laziness is nothing but a poor history of reinforcement for task completion behavior (or on task behavior as we say in the biz). The posts above are really on target when it comes to looking for less aversive areas to concentrate your efforts. First you need to track your current behavior (work) output to develop a baseline. Then set small and incremental objectives to meet and if possible make a visual representation of your progress i.e. graph or interval or milestone bar where every time you reach you small destination is visually obvious and represent your cumulative efforts. This will help your drive for sure. Good luck!

What keeps most people motivated is the experience of success. Even mini successes can keep us going. If you are lazy sir...I say learn to become a great leader and outsource, outsource, outsource.

Become the General not the foot soldier and hire people off of odesk, elance, or vworker to do your grunt work for you.

But a word of caution, only pay for results. Never give an upfront fee.

OK here is my take on it. I may be totally wrong on this but this is what I think. Sometimes when we think we are lazy, we may actually not be. We may be mentally overloaded. Think about it. You could be actually really be having a million different goals you are wanting to achieve. However, because your mind is always working and thinking about it... you end up sapped due to the energy put in thinking about it and not having a plan to take action on how to achieve these goals.. so the more you think about it, the more scattered our thoughts are and once again this is very draining... so it the laziness be interpreted as being mentally and emotionally drained by this subconscious thinking? Something to consider. I am only saying this as a great possibility because I had that problem too. I am actually a person with huge dreams and goals and know that action needs to be made to create. But due to the fact that I never had a plan of action, I felt as if I was literally starting to stress about these dreams and knowing I want them to come true but at the same time could not find the energy or plan to even start working towards it. So since I could not tap into it which frustrated me more.. and sapped me more.. I also felt like I was one of those who "talked the talk but never walked the talk". Yeah oh yeah it was frustrating. But as it turned out, it was not that I was lazy or even a big talker... I was physically, mentally and emotionally drained due to having a bunch of goals in my head scattered everywhere and thinking about it (even on a subconscious level) all of the time. But little by little I started organizing what I need to do (with some help which I needed) and I am finding myself more motivated to keep it up. Just something to think about what could be happening with you?

Basically you need to get more motivated, try to do more things that you really are interested in. Also try to think more positive about yourself, negative self talk can do a lot of damage.

I too had the same problem but still have overcome this situation plus i have an anxiety disorder, so if i can do it i definitely know you can too. I hope everything goes well for you buddy.

First of all, I want to thank everyone for their contribution.

Now, here is the thing. I have been on my "focused" level in almost 2 weeks now. I made $0 dollars from affiliate sales right now, I am trying and trying but I think I gotta try harder.

Being focused helped me gain more visitors to my site(30-40 on average now, but still no sales). I can't give you the link right now, but that is not what I was going to talk about in this reply.

I just wanted to see if you can help me out again.
I've made progress on my laziness, but what am I doing wrong here? How long will it take me before I can generate money from affiliates? What should I do to keep my motivation up, I mean even one single sale could fly me to the moon and keep me motivated more. I just have to fight and don't give up I guess. I hope you warriors can help me out..

PS. How can I work more efficiently?

I am not experienced with this stuff either but unfortunately things can take time. But what I feel IS effective is building the trust of those on your list and one easy way to do that is to provide a mini free ecourse through your autoresponder so they see you have something to offer and then you can start advertising. Just a suggestion but building trust is a biggie, and providing something that they can use for free is a huge way to earn the trust. Or you can give them a free ebook, and if you have tried that, perhaps the ecourse (which I find to be a better idea) works well. If this idea interests you, I have a few I can give you (as you don't have to create them yourself, there are lots of free ones that you can take, as long as whoever has created them gives permission). I do not have enough posts yet to privately IM you, so you can contact me through my site which is in my sig if you would like and I will email the courses to you.

I don't think you're lazy. I just think that you haven't found your passion yet. That's all.

Once you find out what your true passion is, you won't need motivation to achieve your goals. That's a mistake a lot of people make when they enter the IM niche. You'd be surprised at how many people actually hate internet marketing and still wonder why they can't make it...

Motivation is only needed for doing things you hate. And if you constantly do things you hate, you'll never be truly successful.

I can totally relate to what you are saying because I am the same way. There are two things going on here - one is the laziness and procrastination and the other is being disturbed all of the time. The matter of being disturbed is practical, the lazy syndrome is patterned behavior. The reason why you allow yourself to be disturbed all the time is because it fits into your pattern of laziness and procrastination. It gives you a "valid" excuse (to yourself) as to why you couldn't finish this, that or the other thing. You need to begin cutting into that one first by setting definite limits on others' access to you. Refuse to be interrupted - that one is within your control.

For a lot of my early life I was a "jack of all trades, master of none." Although I thought I was learning and being productive, I was sabotaging my growth and advancement by basically staying in place and spinning my wheels. It took a long, long time for me to realize that I was going nowhere.

Through many failures and blaming the world, others, whatever, for my stagnation, I finally began looking at myself and what I was doing with my attention. And therein lies the fault. I discovered that, at the root of all that flighty attention and never completing anything before going on to the next thing, was profound fear and a poor self image. I didn't believe in myself. On the surface, it didn't show at all and no one would have guessed. I began to see how ingrained, unconscious beliefs were actually informing my thought process which, in turn, was helping to mold or create the outcomes in my life.

For me, laziness and procrastination were by-products of fundamentally not believing in myself. I then knew that it was I who had to take responsibility and begin to do something different. Life began to change for me when I made a vow to myself that I would complete one thing, and one thing only, before moving on to the next. I confronted negative thoughts by replacing them with positive ones.

This is just my story and everyone is different. But you and only you must transform chronic laziness by making some agreements with yourself and living by them. It's good to put things in writing. Start by making a short, doable list of the things that you don't want to do anymore and a few things that you want to accomplish. Call three of your friends and ask them if they will help you be accountable for these things. Stay in close touch with these people every day and confess your successes and your failures. Make the decision to go to battle with the self-defeating strategies and actions that are limiting your capacity to realize success in your life.

Good luck, my friend. I'm just like you.
