    No. There is a difference between those hard workers and others — motivation. Motivation just isn’t something you can decide to have — it comes and goes. These other people have very active motivational systems and thus are driven enough to be able to choose to perform these amazing feats. Those without this drive, though they may seem like lazy losers who are choosing against doing something with their lives, are actually fundamentally different from the former group and through no fault of their own. These people blur the line between “I can’t” and “I won’t” with something much more hard to understand: “I don’t have the motivation.”

      No one should use the phrase ‘lazy losers’ to describe anyone. There are always reasons for people to behave the way they do. It may be due to clinical depression, or a fear that they can’t succeed, or even feeling content with where they are in life at the moment.

      Motivation itself is a part of human life – we’re motivated by hunger to obtain food; motivated by the need to have shelter to work. People who lack motivation are often clinically depressed – how it feels when you simply cannot get out of bed, can’t go out and be social, can’t care for themselves. Yes, that is NOT a choice, but it’s not really about lack of motivation – it’s about depression, anxiety, feelings of low self-worth.

      A child who grows up being told that he is stupid and lazy may feel that way, until he learns otherwise.
