The sad fact is, many people out there just don’t have the energy to find more work, make extra income, or find a better job. Just look at how laziness can hinder your bank account.
Hustle at Work
There’s a difference between being a go-nowhere-brown-noser and an employee who hustles at work to get the job done, make an impression, and climb the ladder. The question is, do you have the energy to hustle at work, or are you the guy letting everyone else do the job?
Sure you may slide by without being noticed as the office slacker. But it’s not going to get you any promotions or pay raises either.
Of course, if you’ve identified that your job has a glass ceiling and there’s absolutely no chance that you’ll advance in your current company, you might want to think about setting sail for another company or a new career.
Getting a Second Job
Everyone’s heard stories of a father, a mother, a college student, or some neighbor who’s had to work two or three jobs to make ends meet, pay for school, go to night classes, or put food on the table.
Does the idea of having a second job, or God forbid a third, send shivers up your spine? Does finding extra work make you sick to your stomach?
Many people have found financial freedom through working a second job. Second jobs usually aren’t permanent, they’re just a great way to get to where you want to be. But you have to have the drive to do it.
Finding extra work takes time and energy. If you’re not up to the task to fix your cash flow problems, then you’ll probably continue to have those same problems until you decide to make a change.
The absolute end game to laziness and being too tired to put forth a good work ethic is being fired from your job. This would definitely cause you to lose some money.
Who in this world can truly afford to lose their source of income? But if you don’t have what it takes to perform at your job at even the most basic level, you’re probably on thin ice with HR, even if you don’t realize it.
Back when I had an office job, I was pretty sure that I worked at the black-hole of the corporate world. There was no accountability, no punishment, and no source of fear-for-your-job. But unless you work at a place similar to this, you’ll probably need to perform, or you’ll be in the unemployment line.
Whatever your situation, don’t let laziness take control of your life. Among other areas that this will effect, it will certainly cause changes in your financial life – sooner or later.
If you find yourself on the lazy side of the spectrum, make the necessary changes now before it’s too late.
