Men have been conditioned in such a way as to delay the laborious. So many fruitful thoughts which could lead to positive results in our lives are left tucked away in dusty cupboards. They remain in our minds as potential deeds that fail to manifest either due to sloth or anxieties, like doubt and fear. A man indulges in a circular narrative that begins to even build up cases for why this particular line of activity is unnecessary, or if the self-deceit continues, on how it can be harmful and dangerous to his well-being. His manner of thinking has been designed by a culture at large that is similarly fond of white lies, and so mediocrity in character runs rampant as a general ailment of his society.
