Based on this:

Being second to anybody is NOT an option for the Shia of Muhammad (pbuh) and Ali (as).

There is a Hadith of Imam Sadiq (as), " strive in this world as if you are never going to die, strive for the next, as if you are going to die tomorrow".

Too many reasons. But depression is one of the biggest ones. If someone is depressed, they're quite inactive.

It's a cycle, depression begets laziness, and laziness begets depression, this is why Imam's Hadith of breaking laziness with your will power.
