DESCRIPTION

Lets face it, from time to time everyone has the tendency to be somewhat lazy and slovenly, after all it is in our nature. I know for a fact that I can be very lazy if I am not careful about how exactly I choose to live my life and the actions that I take on a day to day basis. I very often used to sleep in until the afternoon! Which by that time I had wasted most of the day so I had little time to play with, I had ruined my eating pattern which considering I am trying to put on muscle mass, absolutely kills any attempt to get bigger. I messed up my sleep pattern so I would often go to bed late and feel even crappier the next morning and to top all of that, the lay ins I was having were not allowing me to get anything done, so then I would justify not doing anything by saying oh well its just one day, what harm can it do?. Cue the laziness and slovenly behavior.

I know for a fact that I can be very lazy if I am not careful about how </p><p>exactly I choose to live my life and the actions that I take on a day to day basis. I very often used </p><p>to sleep in until the afternoon! Which by that time I had wasted most of the day so I had little </p><p>time to play with, I had ruined my eating pattern which considering I am trying to put on muscle </p><p>mass, absolutely kills any attempt to get bigger. I messed up my sleep pattern so I would often go </p><p>to bed late and feel even crappier the next morning and to top all of that, the lay ins I was having </p><p>were not allowing me to get anything done, so then I would justify not doing anything by saying </p><p>oh well its just one day, what harm can it do?. Cue the laziness and slovenly behavior. </p><p>How To overcome Laziness </p><p>Okay, so now you have a brief background of where I am coming from and why you NEED to </p><p>listen to me, here is how I overcome the laziness pitfall. There is not one way to </p><p>overcome laziness and indeed you will need to find what works for you, however laziness afflicts </p><p>everyone for time to time so it is a good idea to try different methods, which will work better than </p><p>one solution . </p><p>Set Specific Goals </p><p>Ahhh the age old topic of setting goals, now it can be tiresome the way that some people harp on </p><p>about goals. Yes theyre important but are they often over talked about? Well it depends what you </p><p>believe but I believe that to overcome laziness, you have to have a solid WHY as to why you </p><p>should get your arse off the couch or out of bed. If you can decide what you want to achieve in 5 </p><p>years, 3 years, 1 year, 6 months and maybe even the next couple of months, you will be less </p><p>inclined to let the laziness creep in. Everyone has their own methods for setting goals so I am not </p><p>going to go into it, I wrote a post about goals already that you can check out here. </p><p>Tidy Your House </p><p>House cleaning! Why the hell do I need a tidy house and how is that going to stop the laziness?! </p></li><li><p>Well let me tell you, a tidy house = a more productive and tidy you. I dirty, messy house = a dirty </p><p>messy you. I have always said that the way you keep your house and your car as well, often </p><p>reflects you as a person. As a human being, laziness also comes on much more if you have that </p><p>slovenly look about your house. Make the bed in the morning you your less inclined to get back </p><p>in it, tidy your clothes up off the floor and wash some dishes, you will be surprised at how much </p><p>more energetic you feel when your not living in a shit hole 24/7. </p><p>Identify Triggers </p><p>This one is pretty simple yet many do not do it. Everyone has their own triggers for laziness, </p><p>whether you realise it or not. Mine would often be the TV and my bed. If the first thing I do in the </p><p>morning is watch some TV, I will end up wasting so much time and set the tone for the day, IE </p><p>more TV. If I get up early and then later decide to crawl back into my pit for another 10 minutes, </p><p>that 10 minutes turns into 3 hours. If you can work out what your own triggers are, you can then </p><p>come up with a strategy for each one, in order to help you around them and the laziness </p><p>altogether. For example in the morning, I will make a point to have a healthy breakfast, enough </p><p>caffeine to kill an elephant and immediately take action on a project I am working on. </p><p>SUMMARY ON LAZINESS </p><p>To summarize then, laziness is a creation of your own habits and rituals, you can feed it or you </p><p>can destroy it through the actions you take. Make sure you are setting goals and sticking to them, </p><p>writing them down every day so you are clear. Keep a tidy home and a tidy you, this will help </p><p>keep that slovenly feeling at bay and make you a more energetic person as a whole. Lastly, find </p><p>out what causes your laziness, find it, strategise to eliminate it and take action. </p><p>Accelerating Your Success, </p><p>Joe Searle Six Figure Mentors </p><p>(Check out this awesome Webinar on how to explode your online business TODAY) </p></li></ul>
