Laziness…The Killer of a Great Life…

We have a criminal in town and it doesn’t discriminate and it can attack anyone at any moment in life. Yes, it is a criminal because it kills your chances to a great life, it kills your dreams and steals your motivation in life. This criminal doesn’t care if you are a male or female, what your ethnicity is nor how old you are. Yes, I dare to say it, that criminal is called laziness!

“Stop being so dramatic Aura!” you’re probably saying to yourself. No, this is not being dramatic because laziness is a big criminal if you allow it to creep into your life. There are many who would love a great life but yet allow themselves to be lazy to do what it takes to have that life they want.

Laziness can attack at any moment in time. Many times we are not so aware of it, other times we are. One sure way you can know whether or not laziness is attacking you is that you start to make excuses as to why you can’t do this nor have that. When I write “excuses”, I’m not referring to excuses that are legitimate like when one has real problems going on in their life. I think you know very well the kind of excuses I mean because deep down inside you know that those excuses are just a way of you convincing yourself that you can’t do this or have that.

Another way to know when laziness is attacking you is by you knowing that you have to get something done yet you don’t feel like doing it. When you don’t feel like doing something, you will be tempted to come up with excuses to justify why you can’t do something. One thing to keep in mind is that anything that you want to accomplish in life you won’t always feel like doing but you do it anyway because you know you have the bigger picture in mind.

If you say you want something but yet you are not doing anything to get what you want, yup, that’s laziness attacking you, trying to kill your dreams. Wanting something is not enough for you to have what you want. You have to take action. You have to be doing something every single day in order to get closer to whatever it is that you want. That is the hardest part. Wanting is easy, the secret is in the doing and when you start viewing the doing part as something hard or impossible, you are allowing laziness to take over by once again, justifying why you can’t do something.

My hope with this post is to make you aware of ways in which you may be allowing laziness to kill your chance of having the life that you want. If you start paying attention to these signs that I just wrote, you will know that laziness is trying to take over and then be able to stop this from creeping into your life.

What Is The Purpose Of Your Life On This Earth?

The reason why I write this question and why I think it’s important to write about this is because how you answer this question will determine how you live your life, the choices that you make, the things that you attract into your life, how you interact with others and even how you treat yourself. Perhaps this is a question that some may not even ask themselves but this is a question that we can not underestimate the power that it has on our life and well-being.

Just like your thinking creates your reality, the way you view the purpose of your life in this world will also impact your reality and in very big ways. I don’t think there is a right or wrong way of answering this question. Your purpose on this earth doesn’t have to be something grand in order for your life to have meaning. Your life already has meaning because whether you realize it or not, there are other people affected by who you are and how you live your life, whether that be your family members, your friends or even people who you don’t know yet. Therefore, no matter what it is that you do, you are a very valuable person. The most important person who needs to see this and whose answer to this question will matter and will determine the way you live your life is you.

How does this simple question impact your overall life and well-being? Well, if you believe your life doesn’t have much purpose then that is how it will be. If you feel life is just meant to be the same ol’ same ol’ as the saying goes, then that is exactly the way your life will be. Once again, your life purpose doesn’t have to be something grand, we are not all meant to be doing the same thing. You are, for that matter, we all are unique individuals with unique purposes no matter how similar in certain things we may all be. I know one thing for a fact, with all conviction and it is this-your purpose in life is to be happy, healthy, enjoying your family, enjoying life, and always looking forward to great things in life. It doesn’t matter if great for you is just knowing that you are going back to your family, that is great as well. Family is one of the greatest things we have that we sometimes tend to take for granted. The point is that your definition of great is what matters most.

If you have a strong belief that your life is full of purpose, that you are designed to be happy and full of energy, you will live like so and attract to you more situations that will bring you more of the things that you already expect. This is why your answer to this question is very crucial to your well-being and overall life. Take the time to think about the purpose of your life on this earth. You may be surprised at how this one simple question can change your life.

The Power and Greatness of “No”

Saying “no” to the things that you don’t like, don’t want to do, things that don’t resonate with you, things you don’t agree with is very important. So many times we get wrapped up on what others may say or think that we neglect ourselves and what we feel. It is crucial to your well-being and self-esteem that you are true to yourself and being true to yourself will sometimes mean that you will say “no” to things and people.

When you, out of fear of what others may say or think of you, you don’t say “no” to things you don’t want to do, you will feel as if you are compromising yourself. That’s because you ARE compromising yourself. I don’t know about you but when I compromise what I feel and think, I don’t feel good about myself at night. The person that you wake up to and go to sleep with is with yourself. Therefore, you owe it to yourself to do things that makes YOU feel good about who you are, regardless what other people may say or think, just as long as you are not hurting yourself nor others.

The way to exercise the power of “no” is by knowing your limits, your boundaries, your likes and dislikes, knowing what you are not willing to tolerate. Basically, it takes knowing yourself in order for you to use this power to your advantage.

There will be times when exercising this power will mean that others may not understand you, may not like you, may treat you differently and that’s ok. The first and main person who needs to feel good with who you are, how you feel and think is you.

For your well-being, it is important that you say “no” to the things that compromise with who you are. The only way to truly living a fulfilling life is by you being true to who you are and this does mean that there will be times where you will need to exercise this power.
