Why there is no such thing as a lazy person...

There's a phrase that I often hear from clients, friends, family
and members of this forum that proclaim that "people are just
too damn lazy".

The concept of laziness is often used to describe a state where
a person is unable or does not want to do something. Yet if you
look at this a concept a little more closely you'll come to
realise that it isn't laziness at but rather...RESISTANCE!

Resistance comes in many forms one of which may give the
appearance of laziness but it's really just an unconscious
reason for not doing something.

Often we have deep seated beliefs or ideas that conflict with
our conscious desire to be, do or have something, and the main
weapon that our mind uses to get its way is...resistance.

If you ever find yourself failing to follow through on some
action or goal and blaming it on your own laziness, DON'T;
simply come to terms with the fact that you failed to do
whatever it is that you were supposed to do because you did NOT
want to.

This self honesty will hopefully lead you to the real reason why
you're not doing whatever it is you're supposed to do and allow
you to resolve the inner conflict.

However, if you just continue putting it down to
laziness..you're simply not taking responsibility for yourself
or your life.

Just my 2 cents.

    I guess that's one way of looking at it. I'm resistant NOT lazy... I like that.

    Totally agree, lazyness is a form of fear, specially when it comes to internet marketing.
    People is afraid to fail, afraid of success, we just got to learn to control those feelings.

    Laziness is also just not giving a damn. If you love what you do and you are committed to your vision, you won't be lazy. If you're in a soul-sucking job where nobody notices if you give 100% or 10%... I think it's human nature to become lazy in situations like that. Of course you can always give yourself a kick in the rear and get out of that situation and do what you love - and if you don't, that's resistance due to fear!

    First off love what you do or find ways to love what you do. Ask your self "why do I do this?" Most of the time, the answer to that question is your motivation and nothing come close to battling laziness than pure motivation.

    I don't consider myself lazy, however, there are times where I just don't give a flying crap about anything...I'd rather sit at home, watch tv, sleep, veg out than work to make $ or to make a career out of my life. I think its the inner me being rebellious and not wanting to conform to society's slave mentality. I'd rather be free and lazy than to be a workaholic slave to my job.

    That's sort of like a person saying: I'm not fat, I'm just big boned.

    I disagree, no matter what you call it lack of motivation or resistance it is still called laziness or lazy person, these people relies on what the system or the government can have for them instead of doing something that is for the betterment of the country.

    I think that is a wonderful term for being lazy. Resisting is the right word, you resist because you don't have enough reasons for yourself to believe that you must do it. Great one!
