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…

Have You Given Up Already?

Have going given up?

While playing a game of Billiards with some friends at a game center, I overheard someone complaining about how hopeless the situation in our country was. He was thoroughly convinced that nothing else could be done and there was no hope that things would ever be better.

I was just positioning myself to hit the cue ball with my stick, but when I thought about what he said and the few people who were nodding
in agreement with him, I stood up erect, strongly objected and let the guy understand that indeed there is still hope.

 Yes, it's true that the situation in our country is tough, it's true that we have some corrupt leaders in power and it's damn true that life is harder for the average man, but the only thing that gives me hope is the power of human choice which can never be taken away no matter what.

Positive transformations in various parts of our world have emerged from situations that looked very hopeless. These transformations couldn't have been possible if everyone lost hope. Rather, it was brought to life by the actions of few spirited individuals who still believed that all hope wasn't lost.

You've not failed as long as you're willing to keep trying! You're never a failure if you can keep on making attempts. You only fail the moment you stop trying! To believe that we are hopeless is to deny our power of choice. And denial of our power of choice is the only thing that guarantees failure.

Look my friend, the little actions you take today plays a big role in the grand scheme of things. Our main problem is that we give up too easily and then we wait for a Messiah to save us. Truth is: No one man can save our country from its present predicament.

It will take responsibility from every one of us and the moment we choose to lose hope, we give up that responsibility! Whatever little thing you're doing that is adding value to our nation, keep doing it. You may not know how valuable your little actions are.

The child you take care of today, might be a great leader in our nation tomorrow. What will be his fate of you don't teach him properly and take good care of him?

The drug you produce and sell might be used by someone who is destined to invent something big in the nation. What happens when it's fake?

Just speaking kindly to a stranger and helping him without seeking a reward might just change his mind from doing something dangerous.

The point is that, your own actions matter and you always have a choice. Making the right choice goes a long way to create little changes in our society which you may not notice.

Let us stop giving up and becoming hopeless, let us stop complaining and blaming our leaders. Rather, let's focus on the little thing we can do to make our country better and keep doing it! Just keep doing it!
That's what we're meant to always do.

I will never lose hope in a better country and a better world because I believe that human beings can still rightly use their power of choice.

Complain less and do more.

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…
