How to fight laziness?
I think it's one of the biggest obstacle for people in achieving their goals.
Really, we could be a lot smarter, more successful, more helpful towards other people, but because we're lazy we are not all those things. Or we are but we could be much more than that.
Do you think laziness is an essential part of all human beings, and if could find a way to reduce it somehow we could be a better people. Do you think laziness is a lack of will?
I'm asking this because the other day I had a heart-to-heart talk with my friend and he said that laziness is preventing him from being really successful, wealthy, helpful, etc.
A friend of a friend of mine can't find a job because he says he doesn't really know what he likes. But is it really that? I think he's just lazy to even start doing something.
What do you think about that human phenomenon?

When somebody does have a passionate will to achieve a goal, a well-defined dreamy state of being and doing, that person will not be lazy but will be resolute, determined to daringly struggle for that goal.That person's life will be organized directed to that end. Good health promoting food, good necessary rest, enthusiastic training perhaps with the help of sparring partner, of mentor, might be of great help.
A state of laziness may be one of a necessary standby, an inclination to corroborating idleness, while waiting for the rightest impulse, for the rightest time. It may be an ethereal meditative preparation for the intellectual and material work to be started for the goal that is wanted achieved.
When we are not a lot smarter, we might laugh and think that we were not designed to be smarter, we were not designed to be smarter for the time being. The same can be told about being successful. Also, we might say that the circumstances are not yet favourable, our time is yet to come.
As for being of help to others, while we help others for free we detract something from their ability or will to more actively resolutely help themselves. We make things easier for them, they may have to struggle less, they can allow themselves to be lazy because the work for their survival, the work to reach their goals, is done more by somebody else or others. But we could try and constructively more creatively be interacting with others, especially when at their peaceful request. We could try and be concrete and inspiring about some synergy thus that with good colleagues and or good strangers we might try and improve our world.
We could be much more than we actually are. Potentially we could produce some wonderful deeds never ever seen before, never ever thought of before. But we are in subjective and objective states that may relent us, that prevent us, that may direct us towards some goals instead of others; instead of trying and realizing our own material and or ethereal dreams we may be seeing ourselves compelled to promote those of others, to die for the goals of others, or to live and to die for some other unexpected weird or wonderful goals with a fiercer life of their own.
We may lose our enthusiasm, even our enthusiasm about life; we may become disenchanted, lazy, we may ignore that our vibrant life was not meant to be idle leisure. Our will to be proud daring creatures in this sun-kissed world may transcend into a state of lazy expectation, thinking that the impulse perhaps will come, thinking that what we are dreaming of suddenly may happen. We may see ourselves in a regretful or dissatisfied expectation.
But, we might try and think that we are the co-pilots of our own destiny, the proud daring co-pilots to our own future. We might try and think that our life is a daring dangerous experiment in a more or less ferocious world. We might try and think that we are experimenting, more resolutely daringly experimenting. We might try and become more conscious about the fact that experiment will be leading on to experience good or bad, and that experience will make us an expert, a glowing master on our avenue of life.
Thus, we might try and in whatever we are doing and will love to do or are supposed to do (must do) in our interactions with family, with lover, with friend, with colleague, with good stranger, we are more diligently working at building up, or more ardently adding up to, some great events and some wonderful memories for a future.
Thus also we might try and more passionately combat our own laziness. Do now have chances of lots of great merry laughs in loving company or more sublimely all on your own.
