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…

One Reason To Always Be Grateful

be grateful

Dedicating this article to everyone out there who still finds a way to stay happy despite the challenging situations they find themselves.

No matter what you are going through in your life right now, there is always a reason to be happy and be grateful. Oftentimes, we tend forget this reason and focus only on what is going wrong in our lives.

This attitude doesn't help us. When you focus on only the wrong things, you tend to attract more of it. Your thinking puts you in an unhappy mood and when you are unhappy, you'd find out that every other thing will seem to annoy you.

Yes, sometimes we may feel overwhelmed by the challenges that come our way, but in those depressing times, let us always remember that one reason to always be happy and grateful.

Be grateful for your good health even if you don't have enough money right now. Be grateful that you are alive and still breathing even though problems seem to overwhelm you. Be grateful that you have people that care about you even though you feel you've not found your soul mate.

Gratefulness is an art we all must learn to master. We are too carried away with our challenges and problems that we forget this important and vital aspect of our lives. Gratefulness for what we got is vital for both physical and metal well being.

When we are grateful, we keep remembering why we should be happy and keep on staying happy no matter what we are facing. This is what keeps us active and motivated in anything we do. We become passionate because we are happy.

Take a look at someone who is unhappy and depressed. What is good about their disposition? The sadness keeps them in one place, doing nothing, getting angrier and wasting time. The importance of gratefulness cannot be overemphasized. It is self evident.

One reason to be grateful is always there. But the deal is learning to always remember it when things may not be going so well. Remembering it will help us tremendously than forgetting that reason.

Make it a point of duty to be grateful everyday. Just think of that reason to be grateful and be genuinely grateful for it. If you practice this culture, you will definitely be surprised at the way things will start working out just fine. The more grateful you are; the happier you become, the happier you become; the more active you are and the more active you are; the more results you get!

Be grateful and keep winning!

  2. "for whoever has -gratitude- will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have -gratitude-, even what they have will be taken from them. Matthew 25:29.
    I know most people haven't looked at that verse from this perspective.
    Nigel, you got it. thumbs up

  3. Hi Zenas, I've not looked at that verse from the Bible through that perspective. Thanks for sharing this insightful comment. You're always welcome here.

  4. Thanksgiving is definitely a tool to be used against the devil anytime, any day.
    I was again inspired from this post. Be grateful for what you have, no matter how little because people are begging God for that so called "little thing" everyday just to survive.
    Gratitude is key.
    Thanks for sharing this Nikel!!!

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…
