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 One Advice You Need To Overcome Failure

overcome failure

One of the most common mistakes most people make when trying to do something is not preparing for the worst thing that could happen.

This leaves them in a position where they could easily get discouraged should they encounter difficulties hitherto unprepared for.

It is wise for you to always prepare for the worst possible thing that could happen before

you go into anything.

Before you decide to do anything, sit down and give serious thought to it. Think of the worst things that could happen and make sure you're prepared for all possible outcomes.

When you're prepared for the worst, you have a very strong drive. You cannot be taken by surprise because you have planned for anything that could happen.

Preparing for the worst means you must have a keen eye for details and not take anything for granted. Don't put anything in the hands of chance, luck or hope. Expect and prepare for everything.

How long you excel in any field of endeavor largely depends on how well you can handle failure.
Failures must be seen as stepping stones to success and not a hindrance.

Failure should be unable to stop you from pursuing your goals once you are thoroughly prepared for it. The importance of preparing for the worst is crucial to lasting success.

It's easy to live on motivation and hoping for only good outcomes, but you must understand that just as there are good outcomes, there are also bad outcomes.

If you only expect the good outcomes, you will be attached to them and easily overlook other possible outcomes.

That's why people get easily depressed and discouraged when they encounter failures. It's so painful and it hurts badly because you never thought it could happen.

The only way you can escape these common effects of failure is when you learn to put everything into consideration. Then, it will be a win-win situation for you.

Should a good outcome show up, great! Should failure arise, great, you'll be able to handle it because you're prepared.

This is what we all want. We cannot put ourselves in an unpredictable and unfavourable position by only expecting favourable outcomes.

Prepare for both and don't take anything for granted. Always imbibing this attitude in everything we do will greatly improve our productivity and attitude to our work.

Don't forget, pause and think deeply about all outcomes then prepare for them.

Preparing for the worst possible thing that could happen gives you an edge in whatever you do.

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 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…
