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…

YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE

the choice is always yours

Some people believe that they don't have control over how their life turns out. Some others think that what will be will be, so why bother to take any action? Others believe that they are destined to live a particular kind of
life and no matter what they do, they are fated for a particular thing.

Well, there are also those who believe that they can change the course of their lives by the step by step actions they choose to take and I belong to this school of thought.

Let me ask you a question: If you want to drink water, do you hope that somehow by destiny and chance, the water would come to you? If you're hungry, do you believe that 'what will be will be' and stay hungry or do you do something to get food ready?

Our lives are a function of activity. For you to live comfortably and obtain anything , you must take action to get it. You must work for it and show that you deserve it. That's when it comes to you.

Those who believe in fate, destiny, chance and 'what will be will be' are actually losers who don't want to take any action or responsibility over their lives. They use these things to give themselves excuses as regards why they fail. They've got to understand that the reason why they fail is that they are not determined enough to put in required action to get what they want.

Winners don't believe in destiny or chance, winners are committed to do the single thing they need to do in order to attain success and that is to "consistently do the required work. "

But some will ask, "we've been doing the work, why are we not getting results?" If you're not getting results, you're either not passionate about what you do, impatient or you've not put in enough work required to excel.

You have a choice to live the life you want or to join the mediocre ones who always cry about their environment or the government. 

The problem is not your dad, mom, school, government, girlfriend, boyfriend, brother, sister, country bla bla... The problem is YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU!

It's you and only you. You've got to accept that if you want to be free. You have the right to make a choice to live your life to the fullest. Do you hate what you're currently doing? Then quit! It's simple "quit" and do what you love.  If you'll say "but if I quit I will not save enough money for bla bla..." Then you're just not ready. If you want freedom, you must cut out all the nonsense you don't need.

Don't allow anything tie you down. If you don't like to do anything, then don't do it! Stop giving yourself reasons why you should do what you clearly know deep down that you don't want to do.

People are complaining and crying everywhere that they don't like what they do, but they still go ahead to do it. It's their choice and they have to take whatever comes with it.

Always be conscious of the fact that you have a choice always. The only reason for whatever is going on in your life that you like or don't like has been you! Tell yourself the truth about what you really want out of life and stop wasting time doing stuff you don't like.

The Choice has always been yours.

Don't lose it!

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…
