Must You Figure It Out?

Image
 As humans, there's a tendency to want to figure it out all the time. We want to know exactly how things will turn out and this is what leads to worry sometimes What we must always remember is that sometimes when we've done what we can as humans, we need to let go of the idea of how exactly things will work out. When you've done all you can, trust that all will work out perfectly and relax. There's no point in making sure you figure it out in your head. Most times you see that a lot of things that have worked out for you, you never knew exactly how it would have happened. It just did as you were exploring your options. Therefore, why do you keep worrying when you have done your best? The reason for doing your best is not so that you'll be guaranteed of exactly how things will work. Doing your best should be a habit so you can take your mind from worrying or figuring it all out. You cannot figure everything out .. some things, you must rest easy and allow it to happe

True Motivation as a byproduct of Faith

Image
The idea to write this article was one of the first thoughts that came into my mind this morning. I tried to wave it, but it kept on popping into my mind and I have decided to start writing it. This article will be about faith and how real motivation is a derived product from it.  A lot of people think faith and motivation are the same thing, but in truth, they are not, even though people might do things that look similar in the name of either of these two words. Faith by definition means complete trust or confidence in someone or something. However, I will present faith more in the light of the spiritual definition of what it means based on scripture and that is: faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Motivation on the other hand just means a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way. Both faith and motivation play lots of roles in our lives on a daily basis. Even people who do not have faith are still motivated by something. Ho

Mindset Shift For The Year Into Abundance

Image
Happy New Year Bold Winners! It's our best year yet! Earlier this month, I found a YouTube video by a content creator 'Crypto Casey' which contains valuable insights on the right kind of mindset to have for success and I felt the messageshe passed was too important for me not to share my insights on it. There are two kinds of mindsets she mentioned, the poverty and the abundance mindset. She spent some time describing them as summarized below. Although her advise focused on money, I think it applies other areas of our lives, like networking and relationships. The Poverty mindset is based on "fear" , people with this mindset fear they don't have enough money, will never have enough money and they are in constant fear of their current and future situations. These people are not necessarily poor. Rich and poor people alike can have this mindset at different times, it's more about how these people perceive their reality or interpret it, not really about the re

Why You Feel The Emptiness

Dear Winners, I'm getting a lot inspired these days to write. And the idea to write on this topic came into my head two days ago while I was watching a documentary about Kid Cudi.  He in an American rapper best known for his different style in hip hop music. His music which were often about his childhood struggles related to mental health connected with a lot of people. He sorta created this space where artists began to really express their thoughts and emotions rather than the usual style of promoting gangsterism, flaunting their wealth through music and all. This earned him a lot of fans globally. He won two Grammy awards and has sold about 22 million records globally, he was successful by all standards. But in 2016, in a Facebook post he opened up about how he really felt. This was where he openly expressed to the world about how his anxiety and depression has ruled his life for as long as he could remember. You can read his post here. He got a lot of support, chec

Things You Must Avoid if You Do Not Want to Be Miserable

  Hello bold winners, This video from YouTube was shared by a friend online and the video really has a sarcastic way of making you really sit up. I felt it was a video worth sharing here. The only comments I have to make on it are just two:  1) Being suspicious can be a good thing in certain circumstances, but it doesn't have to make you unwilling to give people a chance to prove themselves or give you reasons to trust them. 2) Seeing yourself as special I think is a good thing for your self esteem as long as you understand that others are special in their own way too and it doesn't make you too full of yourself to look down on others. But asides from these two arguments which I have about 2 points mentioned in the video, I completely agree with every other thing mentioned. I will also add that trying to build a relationship with God, the creator who knows you better than you know yourself will make positively transforming your life based on the points of this video a

Why I Choose to Be Realistically Optimistic

Image
  Since my teenage years, I've always been particular about being inspired and motivated. I've always been inclined to reading books, watching movies, listening to songs that push me towards doing something great. Doing these things made me believe in myself and become very optimistic about my future. I always expected the very best and always put in my best in the situations I found myself. This mental disposition really helped me pull through a lot of rough times in my life. In general I adopted a more optimistic view about my life and even when things appeared to be going south, this view kept me focused, happy and motivated against all odds.  At a point I was getting quite addicted to the resources and once thought of becoming a motivational speaker. But what I quickly found out was that no one was willing to listen to a motivational speaker who hadn't accomplished something hooge (that's a funny way to say HUGE 😂) with his life.. so that thought was quickly replac
