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…

I Love You



These three words were meant to be an expression that connotes a deep feeling of love and respect for another. These days it has become overrated.

"I love you" has become so common these days that the true meaning of the words have lost its taste. People say it so easily without even knowing what they're saying.

Some say those words only when they want something from you. They hide behind these words and when you fall for it, you get to see what's actually behind it.


Why has the words degenerated to this level? It is because mankind has become so cunning and pretentious. We love to wear masks and very few are willing to be true to themselves.

Saying "I love you" should not be so easy and common, if we understood the depth of it. It is even better to first show your love to someone before bothering about saying it.

Action speaks louder than words, but these days, the words have become so glorified that people mistake it for the real thing.

If you really love someone, your whole being will say it. Your mind, body, soul and everything that consists of you will say it. The person will feel it before you even say it because all your actions come from a heart that is true.

Real love should be such that whenever you say it to the beloved, the response should be "I know". Even merely looking into the eyes of someone you really love can say everything.

It is difficult to find such genuine love today and if you have, consider yourself lucky because Today's love has become businesslike. We are quick to claim we love someone because deep down we have things we need from the person.

It could be money, physical contact, power, to fill up loneliness, to answer Mr or Mrs etc. Our love has begun to hang on something and that's what makes it so fake.

If you love someone because of money, once the money goes, the love goes with it. If you love someone because they look beautiful or handsome, the love dies immediately once they begin to age.

If your love someone because you want to fill up your loneliness, it means that if the person goes away for a long time, the love will die. And so on.

Any kind of love based on expectations or hanging on a need is bound to fail once the need is not met. But love is meant to be eternal and infinite. It conquers everything.

So, the point is not saying "I love You". Seriously, go out in the streets or in the market and you hear people saying these words recklessly. They don't even think for a second what it really means.

The point is to understand it. Always saying it even makes it boring. It kills it and makes it look robotic. Your love will always speak for itself if it is true. And whenever you say it, it comes with a certain depth that connects with the soul of the beloved.

So think again before you say "I love you" to anyone. Do you really mean it? Is it true? Is there a want attached behind it?

Whenever we consider these things, the words become true whenever we say it and our every action will speak of your genuine love not just the words.

Until next time,

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…
