Either commit to changing yourself or you’ll underachieve the rest of your life. Only one shot at this game called life. GET AFTER IT!

Vp1, it also depends what their goals are. Maybe they underachieve because they don’t make their whole life working, because as you said you only live once

Exactly. I didn’t ascertain from the post he or she was talking about work (although perhaps I should have). You can underachieve in life, at home or at work or all of the above. Regardless of what area it is, the first step to improvement is changing your attitude. Just my two cents.
