Laziness is very common and we don’t feel lazy or inefficient just once in our life, it can happen more than once. Sometimes, we feel less energetic for a short period and then we work things out or gain motivation to be energetic again, so this is ok. But if you have been lazy for a good time, or you would find yourself out of energy, again and again, this is when you need to be serious about it.
Because soon, you will not able to focus on your goals, and then you might not even consider them important. You will lose motivation and you will lose energy and you will start thinking that you are not capable of achieving your goals.
To be successful in life, we have to find our ideal selves. We all have goals that we want to achieve and to achieve them we need to identify our best self and act like it. But, our busy lives make it almost impossible to reflect on our best self.
You should also know that you are not the only one suffering from laziness. According to a recent poll; 79% of the people that made a New Year’s resolution will not be able to reach their goals.

We all want to be successful and achieve our goals, but we should also focus on whether or not we can achieve, and if we can do the effort required. If not, we should first focus on working on our abilities.
