Idle people waste their time and fail in life

Idle people waste their time and fail in life. Let me explain it here.

What I observe

A guava plant stands tall in front of the block of flats where I stay now. Six families remain there. But none of them except us bother to pluck guava from the plant. When my wife and I do so, we distribute the guavas to all of them. But when we forget, no one does so. But do you know what we observe then from our windows? We watch some parrots eating them. In other words, if you don’t work to taste the fruits of success,  then you will not be able to taste them. Others who work hard are sure to taste them.

“If you wait for the mango fruits to fall, you’d be wasting your time while others are learning how to climb the tree.”

– Michael Bassey Johnson.

How people idle

You must have seen many such people who wait for the miracles to happen in their life.

Let’s say you ask one of them, “Why are you not doing anything?”. What will you hear? Indeed, you will listen to the answer, “I have no jobs to do.” Am I right? Do you know how they spend time? They find comfort in sitting idle and wait for something good will happen to them. But it never happens. Since they idle for most of the day, the muscles of his body and brain don’t work correctly. Inaction is their way of life. As a result, they have issues in physical and mental health. They can not think straight. Either they complain that no one allows him to work or blame others for not helping them. Their only lookout is finding excuses to be idle.


A worker ant sleeps for about 5 hours and works for around 19 hours a day. Our heart pumps blood for 24 hours a day. By this, I want to emphasize that working is a way of life.

People who don’t idle

Those who don’t want to work are foolish people. But some people keep themselves busy doing things all the time. So they don’t find time to make a sin. They are diligent and happy.

If you work hard throughout the day, your muscles work, and your body and brain get sufficient blood circulation. So you feel energized. Then, if you take rest, you enjoy the moments of idleness. Then melancholy can not exist in your mind. So you always feel happy. As you are quite active, both physically and mentally, your ideas do successful projects.

“To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.”



So don’t idle because idleness makes you inactive and does not let you succeed. So work hard to taste the fruits of success.
