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…

Don't Let It Define You


don't let it define who you are



It's easier to believe you're a failure when you've tried many things and failed.

It's easy to lose hope when the circumstances surrounding you look hopeless.

It's easy to think you're not good enough when you don't get the results you expect.

Here's the thing you have to know: There is no easy way out of any challenge
that is really worth it.

Even though it's easier to believe in negativity because it appears to be all around you, you must hold strongly onto your vision of yourself and the kind of life you want to live.

Keep looking on and never lose focus on what you want out of life. Even when you try and fail, keep taking step by step action.

This game is all about how strong your faith is in your vision and how much you can withstand the storm.

If you let the storm defeat you, you've lost. You've got to stay strong. Don't let your challenges and problems define who you are. That's wrong.

That things are tough in your country doesn't mean you will not succeed or flourish in that same country.

That most people are living in poverty and hardship doesn't mean you will live in that same way.

That you put in your best and you get results that do not reflect your efforts does not mean that you're not good enough.

Hell no!

Forget about these statistics designed to scare you. No matter the harsh circumstances, there are people who are still bubbling and excelling.

Why can't you be one of them? Why should you listen to the "no hope" sermon preached everywhere? Why would you lose hope in your dreams?

Don't let these things define who you are, if not you will make the mistake of wrong identity with negativity.

You define yourself. You have a good sense of your own worth and don't let anything tell you otherwise.

You only let yourself define yourself and the world won't have a choice but to respect your definition.

It is unshakable belief that shifts things, breaks laws and makes extraordinary things happen.

Whatever you are facing is simply a test of your faith and belief in who you are, your God, your vision and your purpose.

If your faith is strong enough, there will be no room for doubt. You will always see the light at the end of the seemingly endless tunnel.

And that flicker of light is what keeps you fired up in such a way that nothing can shift your belief.

Believe, just believe, take action, let nothing move you and don't let these circumstances define you.

One day, you will look back and laugh at the storm which tried so hard to keep you trapped.

Just trying to make some sense this Sunday.

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…
