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…

LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT

are you living in the present?

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
inside the past or future. This is important to understand.

Living outside of the present (NOW) has proven to always be counterproductive. Have you noticed that you always lose accuracy while doing anything once your mind suddenly wanders away?

Can you still maintain focus whenever you suddenly forget about what you're presently doing and start thinking of something else? The answer is No! 

Why? Because you're missing the present which is the most important time we have.
Whenever you are really enjoying yourself, for example talking with your friends, you'd notice that you're fully present listening to them, being aware of their expressions etc. 

That's what makes you happy. You're not thinking of the past or future at that moment.
Dwelling in the past has not helped anybody. People who complain too much dwell in the past a lot and that's why most of them remain in the same situation. Rather than focusing on the present and doing what they have to do, they're wasting that "Now" on talking and brooding over the past!

Now get this straight: The past is past! Get over it! Our only business with the past is to learn from our mistakes and apply the lessons in the PRESENT! We're not to keep crying and grumbling over it. That's bull shit! The past is damn past!  Let it Go! Your business is to do the right thing Now! That's what it's all about.

There are some who live in the future, they keep dreaming and visualising, yet do Nothing Now. Those who procrastinate also fall into this category. "I will do it tomorrow" "I will SOON do it" and days and months pass without them utilising the present.

To the daydreamers, I'd love to tell you that it's good to dream visualize and be positive, but of you don't use your present time wisely, you may keep dreaming till the world.

You may tell yourself "I will achieve it" "I CAN do it" "I will be this and that" a hundred times, but if you've not started doing anything about your dreams, my dear your positive thinking will lead you to nowhere.

This is the plain truth: You can change the entire course of your life by what you choose to do right now. I mean right this second. You only have to make a strong decision, make plans and start working in the present.

To those who worry too much.. I've always told people who worry that they're wasting their time. Worrying about the past or the future doesn't achieve anything for you. Guess what? It wastes your time!

Worry makes you waste the time you could've used to take action and change your whole life. Worry steals the "present" for you. And you suffer, because you always miss the vast opportunities for happiness and success offered by the present!

Ask yourself the question: Am I actually living in the now? Or am I just floating and hoping for a magic to transform my life? Am I doing what I have to do now or am I wasting time living in the past? 

What is that thing you've been putting off which you've always wanted to try?

Go and start that business!

Go and sing that song!

Go and build that system!

Travel to that place!

Make that phone call!

Study that book!

Ask  that person out on a date!

Do that thing which would add value to your life right Now! Because, right here and right now is all you got.

Till next time.

Keep Winning! Cheers! Go and start now!!

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…
