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…

The Beautiful Mind Of A Child


When a child is born, the mind is very pure, untainted, unbiased. The mind is described as 'Tabular rasa' according to Francis Bacon.

Nothing clutters this beautiful, natural and endowed mind. That's why children are very inquisitive. The way the look at your face for a long period of time says it all. Even the way they play.

Have you really observed little children play? That's the most beautiful thing to see. Just make sure they don't know you're watching them and observe how creative
these minds can be.

I had the opportunity to see that again recently. The way they played, the way they made creative suggestions from their wild imaginations and the way they easily forgave one another in the event of a mistake was lovely.

They are so happy and full of vitality. Their smiles, their laughter and their movement are all so genuine. One who has a free mind is bound to always laugh and be happy. There is no obstruction to his/her joy.

Children are naturally blessed to experience the beauty of life and living in the present moment. But soon they start growing up and the society together with parental upbringing starts to condition these minds.

They are no more allowed to experience life, they start accepting unverified knowledge from the older ones. They start accumulating knowledge without any opportunity to verify it. Their pure minds gradually become cluttered.

They are given lectures on the people to hate and the people to love. They are told not to play with certain children for no reason. Some are told that their uncles and aunts want them killed. So these young minds start to entertain fears. And when there is fear, a mind naturally begins to shrink.

When a mind begins to shrink, there is a tendency for one to become totally selfish. The tendency to be unforgiving and hateful also comes with it. And this is how that innocent child's mind becomes endangered. In the process his body grows, but his mind has been poisoned.

Jesus Christ was not mistaken when he said "Be Ye like little Children." He liked children coming to him because he saw how free minded these children were. They've not 'known' evil like the adults have known. It was easier for them to learn.

It is not like that for most of the so called adults. They claim to have known too much. When you know too much, of course the mind would become closed because there is no room to experience the new. They just know things for sure. No room for any knowledge.

We have come to a time where we need to verify everything we had once learnt to accept as true without questioning. Most of these things have created problems for us and even made us a part of a problem we never created.

We need to once again become like children in terms of the mind. Our minds function best when it is free to think and act without all the negative things we have grown to clutter inside it.

Let Your mind be open once again to look at things from different perspectives and make free unbiased conclusions. Let us stop being mechanical and claiming to know what we do not even know. 'Knowledge could be dangerous' if we just accept it without trying to apply it and find out results.

My next articles will be on 'when knowledge becomes dangerous' and ' value of applied knowledge'. I hope you'd read them. You'll find them very useful in making you rethink the value of Knowledge.

When our minds are free of mental poisons, we are in the best position to take decisions and actions that will be in the best interest of everyone. We will once again be open to really love one another and see the stupidity in living with hatred in our hearts.

Let our minds be like that of Children.

Till next time,



Keep Winning!

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…
