Resolve to work hard today.

Resolve to work hard today.SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Work! Oh, how we all love to dodge work, I was playing the devil’s advocate recently in a discussion with my mother on women who choose to marry into money- not for love, but simply to be “kept” (as my mother would put it) and she attributed it to laziness! In her opinion, everyone should work hard (out of the home) to make a name for themselves and anything else is laziness! So I said to her, “well, if you’re rich- it’s not being lazy, it’s called being priviledged and if you’re poor, then it’s laziness.” And as a result I coined the term “privilazia”, to describe chronic laziness as a result of poverty or excessive wealth. The point being- we’re all lazy and most of the time (unless you’re a workaholic) we HATE work.

When I say “hate work” I don’t merely mean the job you do, but whatever activity that will produce sweat on your brow and mental or physical strain. As much as we would like to avoid anything that we consider to be boring, like putting a garage in order or do a overdue report. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GROW WITHOUT WORK. It’s impossible to expand yourself- if you don’t leave your comfort zone- if you don’t do the things you hate to do- but have to be done. There comes a time when you have to take responsibility for your life and decide to move in the direction you’d like it go in and often that will require some unpleasant work one way or another.

Stop avoiding it- whatever you have been putting off- do it and do it now! If you don’t it won’t go away- it will simply pile up until it becomes an even great issue to deal with than it would have been from the beginning.

Resolve to do some hard work today. Trust me, you’ll feel like a better person at the end of the day.
