Want to know how to control laziness? Life is shorter than we think, and if you really want to make something happen, laziness is a luxury you can’t afford. But how to get over it?
There are many reasons why people are lazy, and there are many ways to keep your laziness in check.
Do You Feel Energized?
One of the reasons why you might have such a hard time dealing with laziness, is simply that your energy levels might be too low. You see, when you have depleted your batteries, it’s very hard to keep going.
So here is a little thing that you can do right now to figure out where you stand energy-wise.
In a moment, I want you to close your eyes, and imagine that you have an energy tank inside you.
And simply ask yourself: how full is this tank?
Is it 50% full? More? Less? Take a couple of deep breaths and focus on your body, focus inside yourself. In your mind, visualize an energy tank and check how full or empty it is.
Just close your eyes and do this now, before you read on.
So what’s your energy level? Anything below 80 should really be a reason to charge your energy levels up. And there are three basic things that you can do to improve your energy levels:
No rocket science here. The hard part is not knowing what to do, but just doing it.
Obstacles or Rewards?
Think for a moment about what it is that you should be doing, but feel too lazy to do. How does it make you feel? Do you feel it’s just too much to do, do you feel overwhelmed by the odds you’re up against?
Maybe you are focusing too much on all the problems, obstacles and difficulties of the task, and not enough on the rewards you will reap after you have completed the task.
Ask yourself this: What will I get out of achieving this goal? What benefits will I get for completing this task? How will it improve my life?
Who You Wanna Be?
Or maybe you have such a hard time controlling your laziness because of how you see yourself. Maybe your self-image is sabotaging yourself and is draining you of your motivation.
If you think of yourself as a slacker, a couch potato, a bum, a laggard, a good-for-nothing goof-off… well, you’re gonna feel, think and act like one.
- What kind of person do I want to be?
- What do I want to dedicate my life to?
- What do I admire in other people?
The answers to these questions can help you to build a better self-image and overcome your laziness.
You know, it’s a fact of life that most people overestimate what they will get done in the short term, but underestimate what they can achieve if they really set their mind on something.
If any young man expects without faith, without thought, without study, without patient, persevering labor, in the midst of and in spite of discouragement, to attain anything in this world that is worth attaining, he will simply wake up, by-and-by, and find that he has been playing the part of a fool. – Savage, Minot Judson
