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…

Why You Should Embrace Unity

Why You Should Embrace Unity


In our daily lives and struggles, we often tend to often face our problems just individually and we forget that if we should always face our problems collectively, our chance of solving them becomes much higher.

A friend of mine shared this story with me which goes a long way to explain what I'm saying:

"A group of 50 people attended a seminar and while they were listening to a particular speaker, he paused, brought out a container and started giving each person a balloon from it. The balloons were of the same color.

Each of the participants was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker also shared to all. Then all the balloons were collected back from them and put in another room.

After that, the same 50 participants who had written their names on a balloon were told to go onto the room where the balloons were kept and find the ones that had their respective names written on it. They were given five minutes to find it and a reward was promised to those who successfully found it.

Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was chaos in the atmosphere. Some balloons burst in the process and some others were getting angry at others for blocking them.

It happened that at the end of 5 minutes, no one was able to find their own balloons. They were all disappointed when the time went up.

Now the exercise was repeated, but this time in the room, each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.

Within a much shorter time, everyone had their own balloons. It was very simple. The participants simply picked any balloon and called the person whose name was on it and gave it to them.

The speaker began: This is exactly what is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness, wealth and opportunities all around, not knowing where it is.

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Help them find their happiness and you will get your own happiness too. And this is the purpose of human life... Learn to put a smile on someone's face, and you will also in due season."

I'd love to add that your chances of finding what you want in a World full of problems and opportunities are slim. Yes, you can still find it, but it may take a much longer time which could be saved by a combined effort.

Think about it. It's simple probability. Three people working together and looking out for opportunities that match themselves have a higher chance to find it over one person looking for just one opportunity.

Learn to work with other people. This doesn't mean you should depend on them, but rather be interdependent. That is you depend on them and they depend on you too because you are all working towards a unified objective. It should not be one sided. Still respect your independence, but learn to embrace interdependence.

We'd be shocked at how easily we will achieve our goals if only we are much better united. In unity lies strength. A wise man once said, "It's easier to break a broomstick when it's alone than when joins forces with others to make a full broom."

Keep winning.. United we stand!

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…
