Are you always very busy ? Busy with work, career or personal stuff ?
Now, take a step back, breathe deeply, relax and think deeply …….. By being very busy, are you hiding away from something that you DARE NOT FACE UP TO, something that you want to avoid ? When people ask you about such deep issues, do you react and snap at them with anger and irritation ?
If you are a parent with young children, are you always busy with them, their enrichment classes, tuition, toys, spending money on them ? However, have you ever planned for their future tertiary education ? Or are you avoiding this issue already ?
Laziness is the 3rd obstacle in a person’s quest towards Financial Freedom and to cure it, it would take just a little thing called Greed. By having a little more Greed, to have more money for your children education in the future and to have a wonderful gift for your children’s future because you love your children and want to do it for your children.
The human spirit and mind are very powerful, however, with a lazy bug eating into your mind and spirit, you would be shutting yourself from the various opportunities that would appear in front of you. With a little greed into your life, you would have the little desire to have a better life and making the progress and growth. Nevertheless, too much greed is not good.
A quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, “Do What You Feel in Your Heart to be Right – For You’ll be Criticised Anyway. You’ll be Damned if You Do, Damned if You Don’t.”
