    The better question is are there members on DP with fewer posts that have been banned?

    No, because the lazy ones won't even take the efforts to let anyone know that they have become successful at becoming lazy. :rolleyes:

    it's just a myth. laziness never pays your bills, but of course, then you'll have to define in what context you are referring to it.

    Lazy people cannot make it. There are a few lazy people because of inheritances that have come into fortunes. Because lazy people lack discipline and inner strength they almost always fail. These misfits also lack the fortitude to handle stress which is a necessary prerequisite to maintaining a business. The fortunes easily gained are squandered in a few short years.

    Laziness is a state of mind that is not conducive to success.

    Totally agreeing with @Spoiltdiva
    Lazy people cannot become rich, unless they win some lottery or inherit wealth.
    And a wealthy lazy person will probably get indulged in drugs and alcohol and will finish themselves...
    You can do nothing with your body, but the mind will still do and need something. This is why they will get into drugs and stuff, to kill boredom...

    Depends on your description of successful. I am a Union man, retired at 45, and have been retired for 23 years now.

    And I can't say of proud of being one of the laziest men that I've seen, except for what I've accomplished while being as incredibly lazy as I am.

    That's assuming that the time between publications is unproductive. If it was it is unlikely they'd be able to create another notable hit.

    These are some really good words here. Absolutely agreeing with on this - one simple example are the people who have won lottery or acquired a lot of money is some other lucky way, and these people almost at 100% of them are losing these fortines, just because their mind is not working as the minds of the rich people. This is one of the most important differance between poor people and rich people - they their mind and thoughts work.

    There are pretty many of them in China. The govenment buy land from the village in Shenzhen/Shanghai. Each family there could get ten million us dollar at least or even more.
    they dont need to do anything but just born there. Everything in China today is changing every day.Very Magical.
    The person you know who is very poor last year,could be very rich this year.
    Here is a true stroy about my uncle. He was fifty years old and knew nothing about computer and Ecommerce.Donest even know how to type.
    But one day he decided to start Ecommerce businese in Taobao. He saved up 0.1 million usd first year which really shocked me.

    Laziness leads to a FAILURE also know as a COMFORT ZONE!
    Productivity leads to SUCCESS! also know as a STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

    SO NO, they are not lazy.

    Being lazy can never be successful, all successful people today are hardworking because of the difficulties of life and for their dreams.
