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…

10 Ways To Develop A Winner's Mindset

10 ways to develop a winner's mindset.

1. Learn to do more than the rest.
You must be willing to do much more than necessary or what others consider normal. Winners don't just stop at where other people stop, they go the extra mile which is why they get extraordinary results. Many people are lazy and don't want to put in work. That's why few people are at the top. These few are the winners ready to do more than expected. 

2. Be persistent, but not to a fault.
A winner knows how to be persistent. He keeps pushing for whatever he wants without easily giving up. There are times of course when he quits. But he only quits when he knows he has tried his possible best. Else, he keeps on pushing for his goals. This obsession is what keeps him winning. 

3.Place important value on your time.
To develop a winner's mindset, you must learn to appreciate the value of your time. Time is money! Time really matters. You must conscious of time as a resource that should never be wasted. This will keep you focused on what really matters rather than wasting your time on frivolous activities. 

4. Understand that nobody owes you anything.
You can't have the mindset of a winner when you always expect people to do things for you or depend on them. You must understand that nobody owes you anything and that if you really want to achieve anything, you have to get it yourself through the actions and decisions you make. 

5. Don't care too much about what they say or think.
You must learn to stop worrying about what other people would think or say and do what you strongly feel is the right thing. Worrying comes as a result of fear and fear cannot allow you develop a winner's mindset. You should consider other people's opinion, but make up your mind and take the best decisions without letting their opinions stop you.

6. You should keep updating your knowledge.
If you're not willing to keep learning, you cannot have a winner's mindset. A winner understands that knowledge is infinite and if he must stay ahead of the game, he must continue to gain knowledge and experience. He never assumes to know it all or have all the answers. He's always a student of life. 

7. Learn how to move on.
You can't have the mindset of a winner when you cannot let go of the past or any other thing. You can't progress when you're stuck with things that have already happened. Winners keep moving on no matter what they encounter. They never stop and they refuse to be stuck. Learn to let go of things that are keeping you behind. 

8. Follow your gut! 
Yes, this is the most neglected way of developing this mindset. Most of us keep accepting the opinions of other people and neglect what we really feel inside. How many times have you been in the situation where you say "I knew it" "I should have listened to my heart" or stuff like that? Your heart usually knows the correct answer! 

9. Take good care of your body.
It is no longer news that the state of the body can affect the state of mind. You should take good care of your body by engaging in exercise and eating healthy food. Good health is an asset and it keeps you in a good mental state which allows you think clearly and come up with brilliant ideas. 

10. Discipline yourself.
Developing a winner's mindset requires serious discipline. You must know when to say No to certain things and when to say Yes to them. You must discipline yourself to set goals and keep to deadlines. You must have a plan and train yourself to be consistent in your efforts to be a better person and make a contribution to the world. 

There you have it! You can add yours.

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…
