I disagree with you in that people are generally not smart, I would argue people just usually aren't informed. The lazy part, I have a different interpretation. It's not that people are lazy, people just don't have enough time in the day to do EVERYTHING, and the things they don't have time to do they PAY others to do for them. If you are in the financial services sales section, you ONLY have that job because people don't have enough time to educate themselves to do it on their own. The same can be said for any other profession. Take a plumber for instance. Anyone can take time and learn how to do the work themselves and fix their own plumbing, but we don't have the time or don't want to put in the time to learn to do it ourselves so we hire the plumber. Be grateful that people are "lazy" because if they weren't you would be out of a job. The 2nd part of your question to why people don't appreciate them, I can't answer, but I think it's more they don't understand them enough to appreciate them. That's where you come in, to educate them on as to why they should appreciate them. Good luck with your career!
