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…

TO TRUST OR NOT TO TRUST?

the real meaning of trusting other people

I don't know why I'm particular about trust, but I just have to write this otherwise it's gonna explode inside of me.

Our daily existence on this planet is a function of our trust for one another. Without trust, we
wouldn't even live comfortably for 24 hours.

You've got to subconsciously trust the farmers, sellers, makers and processors of what you eat and drink. You've got to trust the pharmacist, the doctor, the pilot, the butcher, the engineer etc. You've gotta trust in them before you can use their products or services.

Therefore, I think the maxim "Trust no one" is practically impossible here on earth. Our life and daily activities are built on trust itself. An attempt to 'trust no one' actually creates an unfavorable lifestyle.

Even though I understand perfectly that people actually have the ability to break the trust which I have in them, I still trust them anyway.

There is a major misconception which I think most people have about trust. These people probably think that trusting someone actually places a wall around that person and chains that person to ALWAYS do good. They feel that people they trust should never make errors.

By adopting this approach to trust, they often make the mistake of dangerously empowering these people with everything they have, not necessarily because they want to do so, but because they feel those they trust should have access to everything about them.

Get this point straight : To trust someone doesn't mean you must let them know everything about you or make yourself very vulnerable to them. Doing that is entirely your choice and you should blame yourself for any outcome and not the 'trust you have placed in him/her.'

If you really want to let people you trust know certain things or give them access to your assets, you must do this because you REALLY WANT TO and you must be prepared for whatever is the outcome. You're not giving it because you trust them. You're giving it because you want to and you're prepared for anything!

You may want to read that last paragraph again because the reason most people decide never to trust another person again is because they often forget to prepare for any possible outcome because they are CERTAIN that a human being cannot err simply because they trust that person.

If you think that other people are restricted to always do good simply because you trust them, ask yourself the question: "Have I been 100% good and trustworthy in the various situations I have found myself? "

In truth, none of us can claim to be absolutely trustworthy in every situation except God the creator. But that doesn't mean that we do not all share that beautiful potential to do good. And it is this potential in all of us that we should trust.

Real trust in ourselves as human beings means to believe in our collective ability to do good while being fully aware that there is always this "slim" chance of error or not meeting up to expectation.

When people break the trust we put in them, it could adversely affect our relationship with them, but it doesn't mean that we should lose trust in every human being's capacity to do good.

If we decide to stop trusting other people because one person broke our trust, it actually hurts us. You begin to live in separation and stagnation. You close up on life and you lock up yourself. It does you no good.

Yes, it is risky to trust in other people and that is the reason why you've got to be smart about it, but never ever stop believing in the capacity of human beings to make that choice of doing good.

Whenever we live in separation and mistrust, there is always conflict, war and separation. We fight each other and we stop progressing because we have lost our trust.

The forces of chaos are happy when we fail to trust in one another. Then we can't make rapid progress and we become enemies to one another.

Our ultimate success, progress and advancement as members of the human species would emanate when we stop being separate and recognize ourselves as part of a whole. That is the level of interdependence and we must trust one another to get there.

I think I've written too much.. but I will always trust in that spirit of good existing in every living soul whatever the odds may be, nothing would stop me from that because I choose life not death.

I hope you do the same too my friend.

Keep winning!

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…
