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?

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…
