I have said this before about the entitlement mentality that stares at us in the face especially in our generation today.
This has become a serious disease that is gradually ravaging our lives.
When a young man or woman gets up every day in wait for that job or some kind of business supports from an uncle, aunt, friend, the government or many some angel investors then it becomes really interesting a scene to behold.
Sadly, this mentality has led so many people really fast to untimely deaths because of the unending waits without results.
Today again, I want to remind you and if possible, go over my blog and read about it.
First, you must understand that the Laziness definition here is more about your entitlement mentality and it is very wrong if you must move ahead of the curve or stay ahead of the competition.
Secondly, it’s time to WAKE UP! Laziness and lack of action are ethical issues and shouldn’t be condoned by anyone who means well for his/herself. Where they are today.
You must be willing to take actions and not just that, unbelievable amounts of action. Whether it’s by way of getting others to take action for you (delegation), or by advancing forward to attract more attention for your products/services or ideas, or just grinding it out day and night at your workplace until your employer begins to see how relevant you are to the business growth and doing this consistently enough to take you to higher levels of action.
Listen to this, the great names you hear today started just like you and me before anyone knew of their names – that’s how they became successful.
Stop talking about a plan of action you intend to take. Start talking about the actions you’ve taken already and the exciting results being poured in for you and others to witness.
Some people would have to plan actions for close to 6 months of a year before they find even a path to follow.
You must always learn to understand that actions should take 80% of your energies than planning should. Well, if you have to plan, do it really well, but don’t let it take the greater part of you or else you’ll get stunted.
Always assume that your future achievements rely on investing your time and energy in actions that may not pay off today but when taken consistently and persistently over time will produce unlimited success.
Stop being lazy and start being successful.
