No one is truly lazy. The lazy man or woman is a person that lacks motivation. They stay in bed all day, wallow in self-pity about how no one is willing to help them, and for the lack of something that makes them get out of bed and into the fray called life, idleness becomes their life’s tale.
Motivation is very important if you want to be anything or anyone in this life. And self-motivation is even more important.
Today, I am touch to share something from the Bible that bothers on the value of being self-motivated:
“Go to the ant, you lazy person; observe its ways and grow wise. The ant has no commander, officer, or ruler. Even so, it gets its food in summer; gathers its provisions at harvest. How long, lazy person, will you lie down? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the arms to lie down— and poverty will come on you like a prowler, destitution like a warrior.” Proverbs 6:6-11 CEB
Self-motivation is a duty you owe yourself. You just cannot afford to be casual about getting and staying motivated in your life. I mean, who suffers by your inaction? Does your self-worth get undermined by it? Do you really appreciate the outcomes of expecting nothing out of life? It isn’t that you are a lerthagic or lazy person, it’s just that you haven’t done enough in the area of being self-motivated.
My advice to you today is: Do anything and pay any price to get and stay motivated because your productivity is in your self-motivation.
