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…

Don't Be Too Dependent

Don't Be too dependent

The more dependent we become, the more we lose control. Years back, most of the automatic systems we use today were mainly manual.

Gradually, the manual systems phased out and the automatic systems took over. What do you think happened to those who were too dependent on manual means rather than try to gain knowledge and experience in using the new automatic ones?

Well, most of them lost their jobs and the few of them still in the system are on the verge of losing their jobs in the coming years.

What happens when you depend too much on a friend or a loved one? Well, they will be willing to accommodate and help you for quite some time, but once you're not showing any signs of being independent yourself or contributing significantly to their own lives, guess what? They begin to disdain you.

What happens when you choose to hang on for too long to an old method of producing something, whereas there are newer methods which could lead to a higher productivity for you? You become outwitted by competitors who are willing to use the best means available to beat you.

What happens in a relationship when one partner is too dependent on the other and doesn't seek to also contribute to the success of the relationship? Of course, it soon breaks up.

I can go on and on to cite examples than buttress the fact that too much dependence on one thing often turns out negative.

If you really love and respect yourself, you should never depend too much on anyone or anything. It's true that sometimes, you just have to depend, but even if that's all you can do at the moment, always strive to be independent or interdependent.

When you find yourself in a situation where you have to stay dependent on anyone or anything, keep it burning at the back of your mind that you must hustle to keep your options open and break into that phase where you are capable of handling any sudden unexpected changes.

Keep your mind on new and emerging trends. Keep an eye on opportunities and changing times. You will find them and you will be able to know what's phasing out and what you need to take up.

Don't stay too dependent.. Strive to be in a situation where you can be independent or interdependent(which is best).

Keep winning!

  1. If you are dependent then you are reliant on something or someone else. And those people or things will always want something for providing those services. Or at least it is inhibiting your own resources to do something. So it makes total sense to be independent.

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…
