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…

HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO CHALLENGES THAT COME YOUR WAY?


What's your response to challenges?
Everyone on earth faces a challenge in one way or another. It's impossible to live without facing a challenge in any way. What really matters is how we respond to it. Consider the short story below:

A farmer once had a troublesome donkey which always gave him a headache. One fateful
day while the farmer was working, the donkey fell into a neighbor's well.

The neighbor who owned the well saw what happened and reported to the farmer who became annoyed. He went to the well and yelled at the donkey "Serves you right!"

He then decided to bury the stubborn horse once and for all with the help of his neighbor. He started throwing in soil into the well expecting to bury the donkey.

To his surprise, the donkey dodged each heap that was thrown at it and then stood on top of it. The more the farmer heaped in more sand, the more the donkey dodged and stood on top of the fresh heap.

Gradually, the donkey rose higher and higher from the heap of sand and came out of the well unhurt. The wisdom shown by the animal earned the respect of the farmer and other onlookers who were amazed at the creature. #TheEnd

How do you respond to sand being thrown at you? Do you quit, complain, worry and do nothing about it? or do you persevere and tirelessly confront these challenges so you can finally emerge on top just like the donkey?

This is something we all should think about. Challenges are there to make us stronger, better, smarter and tougher. Always learn from your challenges, but never stop facing them. The day you stop confronting your challenges is the day you start losing.

You know better. You're a winner and winners face their challenges squarely.

Till next time,

Nigel

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…
