How can we escape from laziness
How can we escape from laziness
Anthony Robbins tells us the story of a Jewish man named Stanislavsky Lech who escaped the Krakow concentration camp. He was captured by the Nazi soldiers and packed them into an overcrowded train and sent to Karkow. His family members were killed in front of him and he was assigned to work at the prison. He was awaiting his death along with many other Jewish prisoners.
He desperately wanted to escape from the prison. He talk about his desire with his fellow prisoners. He asked "how can we escape from this prison?" Many of them discouraged him. Some said it is impossible. Some warned about the severe punishment, if they found. Some kept silent. But in his heart, there was a deep desire to escape from the prison.
He was asking the same question again and again. He was asking the right question in his position. He rejected the negative answers and was looking for an opportunity.
Each day he asked the same question. How Can I escape from here? He was sure. There is a way to escape from there. There must be some way. He was looking for the way out.
He noticed that a truck would come when there is enough dead body of
men and women who were killed by the Nazis because of their inability
to work. One day he decided to try his luck. He removed his cloths and
lay still, pretending to be dead, among the dead bodies. He lay there
for a day and more bodies thrown around him.
Finally, the truck came, rough hands pushed him inside the truck. He lay there many more hours pretending to be dead. Finally his body was dumped into an open grave. He waited there until the nightfall. When he made sure that there were none, he climbed out and ran twenty five miles to freedom.
We need to ask the right question when we are in trouble.
When we are suffering, when we are in trouble, what questions are we asking? Jesus said. Ask and you will receive. We need to ask the right question every time to get an answer.
There is a sure way for every problem. If you want make money, there is a right and legible way for it. If you want a successful carrier, there is a way for it. If you want an better life, there is a way for it. You ask, and it will be given to you. You will find the way out.
For that you need to be like Lech. He was surrounded by hopeless people. But he kept his hope. He had a desire. He had a question. It was in front of him all the time. In a split of a second, he made his decision to escape from the Concentration camp.
We all are belonging to one or other concentration camp. From where we want to escape. Your concentration camp could be your financial difficulties or lack of skill or knowledge. It could be procrastination. It could be your laziness. You know it better. Find out and identify the concentration camp. Ask that empowering question. How can I escape from this camp. Sure. There is a way. A way out. Take that decision. Move ahead and come out.
It is your day.
