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…

BECOME A CREATOR

What are you creating with your mind and body?

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 getting the point. If you're not creating anything or offering value to this world in any way, you'll end up paying all the other creators and probably end up poor.

To become truly successful in life, you must also add value to life. You can't just take from everyone else and expect to gain something. You'll gain nothing. You MUST give out to get.

The more value you create, the more returns you get. It's that simple. There is a time to take and a time to give. Going to the extreme of taking without giving is dangerous and leaves you with nothing.

There's no way you'll get to any great height without giving. People must celebrate you and cheer you for something. You're not destined to just cheer everyone else who is creating while you create nothing!

All of us are creators in our own little way.  Whether you're creating by the little service you render to your community or the way you prepare food for others or even the way you care for other people, what truly matters is that you're creating something no matter how small.

As long as you're creating that value, you're playing your part in making the world a much better place and you'll definitely be rewarded for that.

If you've not been creating anything, then go back and think again. You were born to create something for this world. God isn't an author of confusion. He created every individual for a specific purpose. And our purpose lies in the value we choose to create for others.

Find out what you really have passion for and create what you can through it. According to natural law, the value you've created would return in multiple folds.

Create value and keep winning!

Till next time..

Why You Should Be Careful With An "I don't Care" Attitude

You've probably heard people say things like "I don't care what anybody thinks." "I don't give a damn" "I don't care anymore" and other words like that. The "I don't care" attitude is becoming quite popular and of course it comes with a good feeling.

This attitude can actually be helpful if it motivates you to keep trying where other people have failed or it helps you become a better and a much happier person. But sometimes, this attitude can arise out of pure stubbornness and laziness.

Many relationships among people have failed because of this. Some people don't care at all about another person but just themselves and their needs forgetting that their needs are dependent on the needs of other people.

It is important to actually care to know the truth and properly look into our consciences before we adopt an I don't care attitude towards anything. Are you adopting it because you are convinced you're on a right t…

What Happened To Victor Pride of Bold and Determined?

So after so many months without visiting his blog, I tried to visit boldanddetermined.com for some fired up articles only to get a surprise.. that the blog has been permanently closed and then there's podcast following from Vic Pride (now Brother Nicholas) claiming that He's now Born again and has given his life to Jesus Christ.
I didn't know how to feel. Whether it's good news or bad news will ultimately be up to us, but I just think I should share my thoughts about it here. But before that a brief background story.
Victor Pride has been running the motivational blog bold and determined since 2011 and he has actually inspired and motivated a lot of young men and women to break out lazy attitudes/habits to live the life of their dreams. 
Even though, I never really agreed with quite a number of his ideas about God, religion, the government, women etc, I still saw the truth in some of the things he said. And he had a very unique way of writing with gives you that adrenalin…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…
