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,

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

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…

Why Your Prayers May Look Like A Waste

Many people around the world today pray for a lot of things from God. For some of these people, their prayers are answered soon enough and for some others, God seems to have turned a blind eye to their pleas.

To the latter, they begin to think their prayers are a waste and sometimes they become frustrated and jump into the conclusion that God doesn't exist. This article seeks to explain why your prayers may look like a waste in case they seem to be unheard.

I'll begin with examples:

Meet Fred and Jerry: Fred is an undergraduate student in a reputable university studying accounting. And Jerry is a friend from the same school studying the same course.

Fred had been studying really hard to pass his upcoming final exams and he still makes out time to pray. Jerry wasn't really studying. He was always seen in the chapel praying to pass his exams. He hoped to pass the exam somehow by faith.

The exams came and Fred passed in flying colors. Jerry failed woefully and started blamin…

Try Discomfort

Many of us would rather settle for the easier way of doing things instead of taking the route that looks difficult at first glance because we hate discomfort. We go for what looks less stressful and never consider to try discomfort.

This attitude is quite understandable because when you think about it, you'll see that most people don't like anything that will "stress" them. Everybody wants it to be easy. But when you look at it deeply, you'll see that it is those people who are willing to take the road less traveled by the majority that eventually find life easier.

Many people prefer to always take the easy way. Instead of moving away from home and try to start living on your own to pursue your endeavors, many matured people these days will rather cling onto the safety of their parents. It's easier for them. There is free accommodation, free money and free food, so what's the point of trying to get things for themselves? They remain there wasting their y…
