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…

Statistics Should Not Stop You

statistics don't matter

Some of you may have become conditioned to easily accept certain statistics which tend to make you easily give up on your pursuits. For example someone says, "90% of the people who tried it have failed." "The available slots are for very few people" or even crazy ones like "Very few people become successful no matter how hard working they are."

The thing is that more often than not, these  statistics makes people get easily discouraged rather than stay motivated. You know why? For most people, it is easier to believe that they won't make it when they're told that their chances are too slim. They have come to believe so much in these probabilities that they already accept defeat.

For winners, the statistics don't count. If they're told that 90% failed, they still want to be among the successful 10%. If you tell a winner that available slots are few, it doesn't stop him from going for those slots. Would you try to sway him by telling him few people are successful even with their hard work? He will tell you that he doesn't mind and he will be among those few.

Winners understand that no matter how bad the probability, chance or possibly of winning may look, they CAN still win. So the stats don't bother their minds at all. What bothers them is to think, make plans and act towards their objectives.

Don't let someone else's words or stats keep you from trying out anything that you really think you should try out. You could be the one to break a record or improve the stats. You could be the one to set a record and be a hope unto those who seek motivation. It could just be you that could be the best when you disregard those stats and go ahead to try out what you want.

Don't let these stats keep you trapped in a wall of yourself. Try things out fearlessly and see results for yourself. What do you gain from listening to those discouraging stats? Nothing! It makes you just do nothing and become an average person. If you must excel, you must not let these statistics become a limitation to your advancement or motion. Keep thinking, planning and acting. Never stop for anything at all.

The prevailing statistics doesn't stop a winner from winning or trying to win. In fact, discouraging statistics should even motivate a bold winner.

Keep winning!

  2. Hi Evans, it's funny you also used "according to a study" which makes me disbelieve your claim. Thanks for your comment though.

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…
