Laziness will not make things happen. Put in the work and get a move on.
Back in the day while in university in England, before school closed for the holidays, I would contact temp agencies, drop my CV with them to let them know that from a certain date, I would be available for work.
I knew our family situation at home. My mother [single parent] worked at the hospital, sometimes doing double shifts and pressed forward without any child support.
I knew that I had to help myself. I had goals to work to save enough money to be ready for the next semester. I needed to work during the holidays to gather enough for the next season. Thankfully, I attained those goals.
It was absolutely necessary for me to work so that I could study those law books without stress.
I loathed the idea of going about, pounding the pavement desperately seeking employment during semesters. Besides, I liked to look good, get my hair done and wear the best, so I needed to buy those outfits.
At that time, we were blessed to have student grants but they were just enough for accommodation and perhaps a few law books which were expensive.
Life can bring unexpected circumstances; even slide abundance from under your feet with challenges you have never seen before. Let me encourage you today: Push forth.
What you do today is for your tomorrow. When you have a destination on your mind, you will do what it takes to get there.
Help yourself and work. The work may be uncomfortable and even bring infra dignitatem but do what you must do to get to where you must be.
Don’t look forward to handouts. People will help you but sometimes the help brings bondage so do what you need to do to come out of where you don’t want to be.
You have a mandate from heaven to be fruitful and to multiply (Genesis 1:28).
