This Year is ‘Next Year’ – How to Capitalize on Your Own Laziness

Let’s face it, we are all lazy. How do I know? For starters, 99% of my blog readers are Americans. Enough said.

If you’ve spent any amount of time in most other parts of the world, you would quickly realize how lazy Americans are. Sure, Mexicans tend to live “slower” lives and take long breaks in the middle of the day. But don’t be fooled to think these are signs of laziness. The amount of passion and determination they put into what they do is a sure sign of hard work.

Okay… so we’re all lazy, and I just proved it. Here’s the beauty of our laziness: it’s never too late to change.
Procrastination is (what I would call) a disease that has widely spread all throughout the US. “I’ll look into that next year…” is a phrase many of us utter, probably more times than we’re willing to man-up to.  But, I also know that most of us (I can’t honestly say all of us) have a conscience – the little voice that periodically suggests moral and/or ethical alternatives to whatever thought/word/action we are now engaging in.

For those of us that have a relationship with Jesus Christ, we know that little voice to be the Holy Spirit.

The truth is… with God’s help, it’s never too late to change.  He is literally there – right next to you – waiting for you to make the decision to change.  And as soon as you do, he jumps in to save the day.

So here’s my challenge to you.  You’ve put something off in your life: a gym membership, a new diet, a business venture, a girl you’re interested in, a guy you need to dump, a vacation.  You owe it to yourself.

There is no better time than now to act.  Just do it.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.
