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…

Are You Just Waiting Or Are You Doing?

Don't be a waiter


The problem with most people is that they wait for God to come down himself and do stuff for them. They just fold their arms, do nothing and wait for Him to do it. It's crazy, really crazy.

I came across this short story online and I think it paints the full picture of why some people are trapped in the same damn situation.

Once upon a time, there was a man who lived in a house very close to a river. After a heavy storm, the water level rose very high and an announcement came over the radio urging
inhabitants to leave their houses before their homes were flooded.

“Oh, no,” said the man confidently to himself, “I’m a religious man, I pray, God loves me, God will save me.”

The water rose higher, and the man was forced to move into the second story of his house. A guy in a row boat came along and called for the man to hurry and get into the boat.

“Oh, no, that won’t be necessary,” the man insisted. “I’m a religious man, I pray, God loves me, God will save me.”

Finally the house was completely engulfed in water, and a helicopter swooped in to rescue the man, now perched on the roof.

Again he refused, saying, “I’m a religious man, I pray, God loves me, God will save me.” Just then, a huge wave of water swept over the house, and the man drowned.

When he got to heaven, he demanded an audience with God. “Lord,” he said, “I’m a religious man, I pray. I thought you loved me. Why did this happen?’

“What do you mean?” asked the heavenly Father. “I sent a radio announcement, a boat, and a helicopter and you still wouldn’t listen to me!”

Funny right? This is what most people tend to do. They pray ten times more than anybody in this world, but they don't do anything to take advantage of available opportunities coming their way.

I believe God has already answered most of our sincerest prayers, but have we opened ourselves up to receive it? Have we even recognized that the answer is already there?

Look at our world today. So many people complaining of hardship and an uncomfortable lifestyle. But then so many people have also been praying hard.  Why are things still not changing for better?

Answer is: Few people are doing something about it and not waiting for God himself to come and down on earth and do it. That's why few people are wealthy, few people are successful and few people are happy.

Let's stop waiting for anybody to come and save us from any shit. Whatever shit we've found ourselves, we should seek God's guidance but MUST ALSO try and do what we can do about it.

It's that simple.

God bless you!

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…
