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…

Are You Simply Waiting To Die And Go To Heaven?

are you simply waiting to die and go to heaven?

Many people desire to go to heaven when they die. "Heaven is a perfect place where you have anything you want," they say. It is a good ideal and I'm not against it. My question to every one of them is: "Since you're still alive here on earth, why not make this world a better place?"

The way I see it, most people are just waiting to die and go to this perfect place. Most of them have given up on life and console themselves with the promise of heaven. They don't want to have anything to do with this earth. "The earth is corrupt and must be destroyed," they say.

These people are mostly poor people who see themselves as "nice and good" and they claim to be guaranteed of heaven because they are saints on earth who have not committed any sin.


I have no business with how they see themselves anyway, but I want to ask, "Why not enjoy your stay on both sides?" "Why not make attempts to make this world better for yourself and your children?" "Why fold your arms and wait for it to be destroyed, so you can escape to heaven?"

The "end time" story is being preached almost everywhere. People have come to strongly believe that the world is coming to an end anytime soon. Therefore, they leave things as they are and make no effort to make their world a better place, all are waiting for the world to be destroyed just like millions of others have waited and died.

Let me ask the question: "Is it that God Almighty, the creator and master of all things, brought us into this world just for us to escape it by doing nothing here but claim to be good and wait for heaven?" "Is it that we human beings have no business with this earth?" "Are were here to joke and wait for heaven? "

I believe that God, in his infinite wisdom, has brought us into this world for a purpose here. There is greater purpose for which he created us and put us here. I don't think he created us, just for the purpose of seeing us die and come to heaven to see him. What's the point of coming here then?

I think God has put us here to solve the problems that life has presented us with. We have a problem to solve here on earth, which only us can solve very well. People are ignoring that calling and have failed to discover it because they've given up on the world and they wait to escape into heaven.

I think it's laziness to come into this world, complain about everything, do nothing, claim to be a good person, then wait to die and go to heaven. I don't think God will be happy with anybody who dies like that.

Look, we are all here to do what we can do to improve this world and then leave. When we leave, we can at least be proud to meet God in heaven and talk to him about the little things we tried to do. I think God will be glad to hear our stories than when we enter into heaven just under the name of being "good people who never sinned."

These were just my thoughts this early morning. I hope you're inspired to discover your mission here and go for it. Don't just wait to die and go to heaven. We can build this heaven on earth here, if all of us respond to our different calls to solve our problems.

Love and Peace.

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…
