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…

Life Rewards The Bold And Courageous

always be bold and courageous


I learnt about a man, who was making a presentation to young adults at a seminar. Towards the end of his speech, he brought a $100 bill and told his audience that he would give out the money to one of them.

He continued, "This money will be given to one of you who really wants it. " "So which of you really wants this money? "

Lots of the young persons listening to him raised up their hands in lightening speeds. Some others waved two hands while a few of them stood up also raising their hands.

But then, there was this young girl that did something different. While others people were busy screaming, standing and raising up their hands waiting to be given the money, this girl
made a very bold move.

She quickly ran up to the stage where the speaker was standing and took the money from his hand. The speaker paused for a bit and looked at her, then he smiled and said "You've proven to be the one who really wanted the money." "It's all yours."

Other people started talking(which they will always do when you're progressing) ... Why did she have to go up to the stage and not raise her hand like everyone else? Why didn't she wait for speaker to select randomly from the crowd? Bla bla bla...

All these things were mere rantings. The point is that the young girl is going home with $100 and nothing else can change that.

You don't have to wait for something to be given to you. You don't have to wait to express your God given uniqueness and talents. You mustn't wait for anything.

If you're bold and courageous, you'll realise that you can have everything you need and it is very much within your grasp. But Fear has always been your enemy. You are too afraid and that's why you've not seen that you have these things yet.

Think about this for a moment. I wonder what the life of Nelson Mandela would've been like if he listened to those who tried to stop him from fighting segregation.

What if he wasn't bold enough to express his feelings against apartheid? Would he have been president? Would he have been gained recognition the way he had?

What if Bob Marley was afraid to produce his music? What if he was concerned about the content of the political message passed to the audience through his songs? Would anyone have known him?

What about others like Martin Luther King and Oprah Winfrey? What would be said about their lives if they were not bold enough to express what they truly felt?

The answer is nothing! If these people were afraid of being themselves and doing what they had to do, nobody would've cared about their existence. They would've lived and died without contributing much to society just like many others.


Often times, you may wonder why you're stuck in the same place. Why are you not making progress? What is keeping you from succeeding?

It's fear, fear and fear! You're afraid of what people think. You're afraid of being killed(Forgetting that you're gonna still die anyway). You're afraid to go against what majority of people think. Baseless and unfounded fear to be true to yourself.

You have been hiding your true self because you want to fit into the 'normal' category. Here's the thing: No one ever achieved anything reasonable by being normal, average or regular.

You go beyond normality to become extraordinary.
And it is only when you have gone beyond normal that you can make significant progress which doesn't just benefit you, but inspires and benefits every other person around you.

Keep Winning Boldly!

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…

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…

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…
