Laziness Is Not The Path To Awesomeness

Years ago, my wonderful friend said this exact phrase: "Laziness is not the path to awesomeness." It stuck with me. I thought it was clever, funny, and absolutely accurate. Sitting around doing nothing won't get you anywhere in life.

We never want to grow up, we all want our mommies to still make us soup when we're sick, to have a nanny that cleans our room for us, and to have a someone else go to work for us every day. The problem is: the world doesn't work that way. Avoiding responsibility will do nothing more than upset those around you. In real life, not showing up for work gets you fired; ignoring an illness makes you more sick; avoiding cleaning gives you an odor.

At some point in our lives, we all need to grow up. We're the adults now. We ARE the employees, parents, spouses. We have an obligation to the people God has placed in our lives. We have a responsibility to Him (Colossians 3:23). We have a purpose, it's time to fulfill that purpose.

Be a friend to yourself. Hard work is the only way to achieve that promotion, goal, or resolution. We're only hurting ourselves when we're apathetic (Proverbs 13:4).

Puppies look cute when they are lazy, people do not.
