The Active Ones Take It All

Hey, you! Yes.. you! Are you still delaying that wonderful idea you may have been nursing for a while now? Have you been hesitating on starting that business, journey, career, course, or work you have  to do?

Have you identified a favorable opportunity, but you've not been able to utilize it because you're thinking too much about it? Then this article is for you. I want you to bear this at the back of your mind: "The active ones take it all."

Life offers everything to the ones who are active. Life doesn't care about your intention or what you're thinking of doing. It cares about what you're doing!

Let's say there are two people who intend to start a similar business, let's say it's a small restaurant. One of them has been nursing the idea for a long time and is very passionate about it. He keeps thinking and thinking of how to start up the business and get everything ready but has done nothing yet.

The other one also nurses the idea though he…

HOW EASILY DO YOU QUIT?

Here is a story I found in Napoleon Hills famous book, Think and Grow Rich. He tells us the story of R. U. Darby.
"Darby’s uncle had gold fever, so he staked his claim and started digging. After a lot of hard work, the uncle found a vein of ore, so he

WINNERS VS WHINERS? (WHICH ONE DO YOU BELONG?)

The winners are those who Do. They are those who understand that success doesn't come through wishes. That It only comes as a result of one's own work and sincere effort.
The winners are those who do not beg for

NEVER BE TOO SCARED TO FAIL

I remember a friend of mine back in my street some years ago. He was a good guy and had integrity. His only problem back then was that his English was really terrible. 
Anytime he made a grammatical error whenever he tried to speak English to me and

10 SUREFIRE WAYS TO BE ALWAYS HAPPY

PAYING ATTENTION

One of the skills that separates the winners from the losers is the art of paying attention. Losers are too impatient and rigid to pay it, whereas winners understand that their ultimate success depends on it.

BECOME A CREATOR

What are you creating in this world? Look around you. All the very successful people you know are creators of something. They all offer value to you!
In football, the players create the game by their actions on the pitch while the spectators
are entertained. These players are well paid for their efforts while the spectators just enjoy the game. Spectators pay with their money and time.
In engineering, engineers get paid for creating and designing systems and machines, while the consumers of their products pay them for it.
Doctors create by applying their skills learnt in medicine to effectively take care of the sick(consumers). They get paid by the consumers for it.
Comedians, Actors and Musicians entertain you with their skills and get paid with consumers money, while the consumers are just entertained.
Restaurant owners get paid by their consumers for the services they create and Banks are thriving because they create value for their clients.
I believe by now you're getti…

THOUGHT COMES FIRST

Have you ever thought about why you were born naked into this world without anything like weapons, tools, books or anything else but your mind?

If you've ever thought deeply about that

DO MORE, TALK LESS

The world is filled with so much talkers. People who do nothing but talk, talk and talk with their time. You find these people in the marketplace, at the grocery store, at the bar, in the sports center etc.
Many people are ready to give you a truckload

DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU'RE TOLD

Once upon a time in an African forest, a famer found an eagle's egg in a nest which had just fallen from a tree. He took it home and kept it in amongst his chickens under a brooding hen.  When the egg hatched, the mother hen

FACE YOUR FEAR, LIVE YOUR DREAMS

Consider this short story: 
One day, a young buffalo named Jack approached his father and asked him if there was anything that he should be afraid of. “Only the lions my son,” his father responded.
“Okay, I'd be careful around lions. If I see anyone, I’ll turn and run as fast as I can,” said Jack. “No, that’s the worst thing you can do,” said Jack's father. “Why? They will kill me," asked Jack
The dad smiled and replied, “Jack, if you run away, the lions will chase you and catch you. And when they do, they will pounce on you and tear you apart”.
“So what should I do?” asked Jack.
“If you ever see a lion, stand your ground to show him that you’re not afraid. If he doesn’t move away, show him your sharp horns and stomp the ground with your hooves. If that doesn’t work, move slowly towards him. If that doesn’t work, charge him and hit him with everything you’ve got!”
“That’s crazy, I’ll be too scared to do that. What if he attacks me back?” said the startled young buffalo. …

SUCCESS TIP: DO NOT MAKE HASTY ASSUMPTIONS

It is common for man to easily make assumptions, form theories and jump into conclusion about things he's not even sure of. 
A major cause of this is that it suits man's ego to have that sense of pride in knowing everything. But this is more folly than wise.
You've often heard some quotes like "All men are the same" "All women are the same" , "All men are liars, all women are deceptive" etc.. 
All these fake postulations are made by people who have had few experiences and the "generalized" it to the whole. Truth is you cannot make such statements except you have experienced the character of either all men or all women.
Some claim that some things are impossible and that you shouldn't try. But many things have been invented by people who didn't believe in assumptions formed made others. It was once thought flying was impossible and that the earth was round. What's up with those postulations now?
The danger in making t…

LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

Most of the problems we face in our lives today can be effectively traced to not living in the present. Why? Because most people would rather live in the past or in the future.
The only time that always exists presently is "NOW". It's not yesterday and it's not even tomorrow. You're always existing in the present. You can't bypass it and actually live
