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…

Live According To Your Means

Live according to your means

It's natural for you to want the best things in life and live life the way you want, but you must understand that everything starts small and progresses from there. A seed doesn't become a full tree in one day, it has to germinate, form a bud, grow as a shrub and emerge a tree.

Every stage in life has its own needs. A seed cannot bear fruit when it hasn't become a tree. As such, you should not try to live above the stage you are currently in your life if you really want to go far. You don't try to spend money like someone who is a multi billionaire when you're still working for your first million.

At every stage, there are many ways you can live comfortably without spending too much. Don't make the mistake of being stingy OR being afraid to spend money at all anyway. Your money must be spent, because that makes way for more money to come in, but you must spend it wisely while working towards your dreams.

I see many average people trying to dress and live life expensively like celebrities, top personnel in the government and multi billionaires. They use the little money they have and spend it trying to look and live life like these people then they end up with an empty pocket.

We must Learn to live according to our means. Learn to spend your money on things that are really necessary for you at your level. Ostentatious goods are not necessarily for you now until you have as much money to throw around them.

So for now spend your money on good decent clothes, not overtly expensive ones(except you're already there),  spend money on good diet necessary for you survival, spend money to acquire skills and develop yourself. Spend money travelling and gaining new experiences.

You should enjoy your money, no matter how little, never be afraid to spend it when you have to, but never spend on unnecessary things which are above your Means. This way, you will grow yourself and increase your earnings in the near future.

Always be smart and wise. There is no need to prove anything to anyone by the things you wear, have or buy. You should only prove one thing to yourself: "You can be better than you currently are." By all means, look good, smart and gorgeous. It doesn't cost much for the basics.

Living comfortably according to our earnings is not expensive. What is expensive is overspending and trying to live above our means.

Spend your money wisely, get only the things you need and keep developing yourself!

See you at the top!

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…

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…

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…
