When you work with a lazy person, usually you end up doing all of the work. (That is, unless you are the lazy person.) It's such a joy to work alongside a hard worker. You can count on them to get the job done every time. They will not wimp out on you.
Sometimes in order to achieve a goal you need to put in some elbow grease. Proverbs 10:4 says "Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth." Think about it. If God was lazy, you wouldn't be here. If He just quit on the second day, He would have never created people. Just because the work is hard doesn't mean you can just quit.
Let's use another example. What if you wanted to lose 20 pounds. Sitting on the couch watching paid programming for Zumba wouldn't make that dream a reality. You need to sweat, and work out, and eat right. But it's all worth it when you zip up those jeans you haven't work since high school.
Hard work isn't a bad thing. Roll up your sleeves and dive in headfirst.
