It's not the good but the lazy who die too young

You have to wonder how many wonderful life-altering opportunities were
overlooked by people who were not looking for a change in their lives.
Life cannot and will not stagnate or hold the status quo. It will change for the
better by intent or for the worse if left untended.
Life does not go well for those who will not work to take advantage of what is
offered to them and for those who will not seek help and ask questions when they
need it.
The world owes no one a living. In nature, those who will not work to survive
die, either of disease or as lunch for some predator.
Though circumstances are different for humans than for most animals and plants,
the results are similar. Humans don't get eaten, but they atrophy both
physically and mentally when they refuse to change or to work hard to survive
and thrive. It's a slow and fearful death.
Lazy people and luddites are often among the first to die off when they reach
the beginning of old age.
