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…

The Sun Keeps Shining


The Sun never relents in shinning


This afternoon after revising my notes, I went outside my balcony and took out time to look at the sky.

I observed the movement of the clouds and the sun, which was shining from a distance. The Sun was out there as always and kept on shining and giving out light to the day.

I felt as if it was smiling at me because I couldn't remember the last time I cared
about looking at it.

So, I said a little prayer of gratitude in my heart and thanked God for the Sun. I wondered about what the world would be like if the Sun refused to shine.

What if the Sun  cared about what people said about it or whether people appreciated its existence or not?

What if the Sun cared about what people who lived here on earth did? Or what if it cared about the grateful or ungrateful people?

If the Sun cared about these things, it would have stopped shining a long time ago. But you see, the Sun's business is to shine and give light to everyone, so it just keeps fulfilling its purpose, without stopping.

If you choose to bless it, that's fine, it keeps shining. If you choose to hate it or curse it, still fine, it continues shining.

Then I learnt something today from the Sun; to keep doing my best and create value, to keep radiating love and to keep shining/giving out my own light.

Everyone of us has some light contained within us all. It's our business to discover it and let it shine.
It comes in form our unique gifts, peculiarities, mannerisms or talents.

Let us let this light shine without bothering about anything else. If we start expecting many things or considering what people say, we tend to hide this light that is in us.

Decide to let your own light shine today, just like the Sun. And if your light is already shining, just keep on shining more brightly and never stop.

I look forward to a beautiful world where every human being lets his/her light shine.

What a beautiful world that would be.

Until next time,

I remain your friend. <3

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…
