Laziness is an outward attitude caused by the distortion of inner beliefs of value. For instance, if a child is given too much complementary, without learning the value of reward resulting from an application of effort, this distorts the concept of getting what one deserves.
This common parental mistake, bathed in love and ignorance, has disastrous consequences on the mind. The result is a tangled mess for the person to clean up later in life when independent maturity is gained.
The appearance of laziness, or its related ties of immaturity; inappropriate concepts of responsibility, accountability, structure and priorities becomes quite apparent to the person and others who rely on them, as greater amounts of responsibility pile on to a maturing life.
