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…

Be Determined, Courageous, Brave and Fear Nothing

be determined, courageous,bold and fearless

I was going through Facebook updates this morning when I stumbled upon a friend's post. He wrote down the words of his late father to him:

"My son, I have no doubt that you will make it, so don't be in a hurry, but be determined, be courageous and above all be brave, fear nobody but God..."

I had to spend a few moments thinking about that. I saw the totality of life contained within these words. All the ingredients to be a successful human being were all pointed out in a few lines. Of course, it got my attention.

I'll love to analyze it:

#Be Determined 
Determination is something every successful individual cannot do without. It is easier said than done actually. I lot of people want to claim they are determined, but when trouble starts knocking they easily give up.

Determination takes a lot of nerve. Determination is seeing that failure is standing right in front of you, but you still push on anyway. Determination is never backing down on what you believe in no matter what you will face. It is a resilient attitude that all successful people possess.

#Be Courageous
We can do very little without courage. Courage is guts, real guts! Courage is making up your mind to face your challenges no matter the odds. Courage means breaking certain rigid rules and setting more flexible ones.

Courage is not necessarily the absence of fear, it is being able to still take action even when we feel the pangs of fear. Courage Is essential to living our lives fully like humans beings and not robots. It builds a sense risk taking and urges us to keep daring for more.

#Be Brave
Being brave, means you don't be a coward. It means standing face to face with the devil and letting him know that he can't stop you and you don't give a damn what he thinks.

Being brave is taking the bull by the horn and being willing to go against what majority is saying and doing the right thing at all times. I tell you, it's not easy to do the right thing at all times. People are increasingly becoming afraid of doing what is right and that's why things are deteriorating. Being brave to believe in ourselves and do what is right is an indispensable quality of a successful mind.

#Fear Nothing 
I need not say much about this. It's simple and plain as you see it. There is nothing to be afraid of. Fear is one of our greatest enemies. Fear of what people will say, fear of what people will do, fear of what will happen, fear of death, fear of engaging in life, different kinds of fears are keeping us from truly living.

How can you possibly live and grow with fear? Fear already makes you dead because you cannot live fully with fear in your heart. Until cross that line where we get to fear nothing, we are still far away from achieving whatever we want to achieve in life.

I respect what my friend's late father has summarised in a few lines. And I respect all the fathers around the world. It really takes a father to teach his children how to successfully live like warriors in a dangerous world.

Respect to all Fathers!

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 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…
