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…

Why We Must Be Interested In Politics



A country which has the right political systems in place is a country poised towards greatness. No country can go far with bad politics.

Most people would love to write off politics. They don't care about it. They don't care about who rules them. To these people, all politicians are corrupt and evil and nothing can change that.

Their minds are made up about politics and the state of affairs of their nation. More and more people are buying into this idea and are becoming indifferent to politics.

"What can we do?" They often ask. Look at what's happening so far with all our indifference and optimism. Things are getting worse and more inappropriate persons
have the opportunity to rule you because you don't care about politics.

When the wrong people rule you, whether you like it or not, you suffer and your children too will suffer. Yes, we all will like to believe that somehow we will become so rich that whatever happens in the country cannot affect us.

Let's look at the reality; many people are probably thinking the same thing. How many people have successfully done that? Majority of people who also wish to be that rich are hit hard by the situation of things and mechanism operating in the economy.

No matter how we want to see it, economy is affecting us all. Why? Bad management. Developed countries keep enjoying fresh opportunities because their government has put mechanisms in place to generate such. They've set up wonderful systems in their countries to provide for their citizens and their upcoming generation.

We cannot turn a blind eye to our own government. We cannot hope for things to get better and still not care about politics. Genuine interest in politics is a must if we are to ever get credible, intelligent, devoted and smart leaders who will rule our nation and put good mechanisms in place for the masses.

There has to be an increased awareness in our people on who's who in government. The voices of the people must once again rise and be recognized for that is the true goal of democracy. The people are gradually becoming silent and indifferent and this isn't what is meant to be.

Corruption and bad governance have come to stay because the people allowed it. If the people hadn't allowed it and come out in unison to choose our leaders not based on our differences or sentiments, but based on a common commitment to elect  credible, proven, and able leaders, we wouldn't be in this mess.

It is still in our hands to turn this nation around. To turn it around, we have to understand that we're all in this together. You don't want to just hope on becoming rich while your country continues to suffer. If we all work together to rebuild this country, we will all enjoy the benefits we are currently missing.

Yes, you're right when you ask what the country has done for you and why you should care. You are right when you claim the country has not been supportive. You are right when you claim your rights have been trampled upon. But I want you to remember that these things happened because we the people allowed it to by not choosing the right persons.

Good things are a by product of good leadership, management and accountability which can only come from credible leaders. Therefore, the time has come for us all to join hands together irrespective of tribe, race, sentiment or religion and work together as one with renewed awareness in our political systems.

The eyes of the people have to be opened beyond sentiments to see what is really going on in our leadership. No one should turn a blind eye to it. It is obvious that the choice to do that has complicated our problems. Instead, we should make another choice to be actively involved in this nation's politics, every single one of us.

This is a critical period in our country and there is no better time for the people to work as one than now. Let's do this for the sake of our children, for sake of a greater Nigeria in Future. Let us leave a legacy of a better nation for our kids. If we don't do it now, they will inherit a terrible nation from us and they will curse us for not doing anything about it.

Forget about our differences. Whatever tribe you come from, whatever religion you practice, whatever political party you support, let us respect each other for once! For sake of the future we seek and the younger generation, let us put aside our differences and come together as one people. Let the labours of our heroes past not be in vain.

Nigeria is a great country. Divisive forces are trying to break us apart, but let us put these things aside and become one again, then collectively we can rebuild our country to its greatness. Every tribe Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba all have wonderful and talented people in them.

We are not trying to prove which tribe is better than the other or which tribe is smarter or which tribe should rule. We are not in competition. We are all part of ONE country and as such our efforts should be collectively channelled to making our country great.

It is these sudden division among our tribes that is causing things to get worse. We have failed to recognize our oneness and we have started fighting ourselves politically and otherwise. Things are bound to get worse if we continue this way.

This is a clarion call to all of you. Let us look at our political system clearly without prejudice, find out what's wrong and join hands to collectively solve it. Let us respect each other and unite to make our country better than it currently is.
May God help us all as we resolve to do so.

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…
