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…

DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU'RE TOLD



don't be quick to believe anything 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
reared the eagle chick as if it were her own child.

And so that eagle chick grew up thinking that it was a chicken. It pecked like a chicken, it scratched like a chicken and it even walked like a chicken. As time went, it grew bigger and gazed at other birds in the sky.

Some of the birds would occasionally swoop down and say to it , "You are an eagle, you are one of us and you're the king of all birds. Come and fly with us."

But it would reply "I'm not an eagle, I'm a chicken," he'd tell them. "My mother's a chicken. I live like a chicken. I am a chicken. Leave me alone!"

And so it happened that this eagle lived and died like a chicken without every discovering who it really was.

Think about this story for a moment. This eagle totally conformed to its environment, lifestyle and beliefs without ever daring to take a risk, reevaluate itself and discover the truth about itself. It was even unwilling to listen to other eagles who totally recognised that it was indeed one of them.

Like this eagle, most of us believe everything we're told. We tend to think like most people and we usually want to believe what everyone else believes in. This leads us to lead a very mediocre life and in the end we end up just being averelse

There is a reason why we are different. You must not fit into the crowd, you must not be like other people. You have to be yourself, listen to yourself and take action  towards whatever you dream of.

All the successful people we know today all stood out because they did something differently. They didn't fit in. They discovered an entirely new way of perfecting themselves that no one else thought of. The leading scientists were able to challenge theories of their predecessors and discover new scientific facts.

We are not born to accept the norm, to be like everybody else and to believe in what everybody around us believes. You were born to stand out and be a shining light to your generation. If you become like everyone else, how will you effect change in your world?

Those things that are peculiar to you, those things that you're really interested in which few people around you admire or make jest about, HOLD ONTO THEM!

That other people are doing something does not mean you should join them to do it when you don't want to. That everyone believes something doesn't mean that it is true. You must challenge yourself and the the things that limit you of you want to discover who you really are. You must be daring, bold and courageous.

Don't be like the eagle which died like a chicken. Recognize who you truly are and develop that thing that makes you different from others. Our greatness lies in what makes us different from the crowd. What makes me different may not be what makes you different. You've got to find yours and develop it.

Know yourself and excel.

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…
