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!

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…
