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…

A Lesson From 3 Idiots


3 idiots lesson

I watched the movie '3 Idiots' a few years ago and I guess I didn't learn the real lesson hidden behind that movie.

I probably watched it for fun and I was inspired to an extent. But it took a few more years to get the hidden message in it.

For many years, I've lived my life doing as I'm told and following laid out patterns for me. I restricted myself from really being who I was and lived like a robot.

I never followed my passions. I never did the things that I really needed to do to make other
people's lives better.

I was busy being too obedient and living my life based on the expectations of many people. That made me live life like a slave.

There was no freedom. And the freedom I mean doesn't mean the freedom to misbehave or become a truant. No! The freedom I mean is the freedom to really be who God has created me to be and fully express my uniqueness.

I could easily lay the blame on some things outside of me, but that's the easy way out for cowards who won't accept responsibility for their lives.

I chose to blame it on myself, because it was actually my choice to live that way, even though I never knew it.

In the movie '3 Idiots', Rancho's friends Raju and Farhan were living like robots. They were not really doing what they were passionate about. They were all after the big certificate.

They felt everything depended on it. In contrast, Rancho, was already doing something in line with his passion and that's why he was a spectacular student in the movie.

He wasn't even there for the certificate which was proven by the fact that he used another person's name to gain admission and study which was discovered later.

He was there to really learn and discover more about his passion. And in the end he used his passion to create value.

The big question this movie poses is: What is your passion? What do you want to do with your life? Have you taken out time to really answer that question precisely?

It's not about saying "maybe I'll graduate and get a job" "maybe I'll do a masters degree" "maybe I'll marry" "maybe this or that"etc. No.. Bloody No!

That's a recipe for catastrophe because your life will tend to go maybe this or maybe that as well.

That's why there are many jobless people out there even with the so called certificate that proves nothing but your ability to memorize, and reproduce whatever you're taught.

Answer that question because it's the most important question for you right now. Your answer must be precise. It's not about what other people want. They can want anything for themselves.

You choose what you want to do with your own life, so that you'll live your life happy.

Don't be a slave. Imagine living the rest of your life like a slave. Doing what you're told all the time. You'll never experience what it feels like to really live.

We forget that we are all unique and we mustn't judge ourselves by the same standards. That you can't sing better than someone doesn't mean you're a failure.

Your skill could simply be somewhere else and it's your job to find it.

That you can't memorize stuff or pass an exam doesn't mean your life has ended. Your talent may be somewhere different.

We must not all live life in the same way and method. If we did, life would be so boring.

So what do you do? You make sure you're happy. And what makes you happy? Doing what you love makes you happy.

And that's where passion comes in.

The only time you can truly affect the lives of other people is when you're passionate about what you do in order to create value for them. Everything else is disguised slavery.

I don't want to live my life like a slave.

I've chosen to be a bold winner.

I don't know about you.

But whatever you choose to do, the ball has always been and will always be in your court.

How you choose to play it?

Up to You!

I love this article and I hope you love it too?

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

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…

Try Discomfort

Many of us would rather settle for the easier way of doing things instead of taking the route that looks difficult at first glance because we hate discomfort. We go for what looks less stressful and never consider to try discomfort.

This attitude is quite understandable because when you think about it, you'll see that most people don't like anything that will "stress" them. Everybody wants it to be easy. But when you look at it deeply, you'll see that it is those people who are willing to take the road less traveled by the majority that eventually find life easier.

Many people prefer to always take the easy way. Instead of moving away from home and try to start living on your own to pursue your endeavors, many matured people these days will rather cling onto the safety of their parents. It's easier for them. There is free accommodation, free money and free food, so what's the point of trying to get things for themselves? They remain there wasting their y…

Why Your Prayers May Look Like A Waste

Many people around the world today pray for a lot of things from God. For some of these people, their prayers are answered soon enough and for some others, God seems to have turned a blind eye to their pleas.

To the latter, they begin to think their prayers are a waste and sometimes they become frustrated and jump into the conclusion that God doesn't exist. This article seeks to explain why your prayers may look like a waste in case they seem to be unheard.

I'll begin with examples:

Meet Fred and Jerry: Fred is an undergraduate student in a reputable university studying accounting. And Jerry is a friend from the same school studying the same course.

Fred had been studying really hard to pass his upcoming final exams and he still makes out time to pray. Jerry wasn't really studying. He was always seen in the chapel praying to pass his exams. He hoped to pass the exam somehow by faith.

The exams came and Fred passed in flying colors. Jerry failed woefully and started blamin…
