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…

Save Yourself!

Save Yourself

I saw a movie "The Martian" in which an astronaut was left behind by his crew members on Mars in space after an accident happened during a mission. His colleagues left him believing he was dead after an unexpected kinda storm hit them. He regained consciousness long after the other astronauts were headed back to earth.

Mark Watney, the guy left behind, was totally startled by what had befallen him. He was stuck on this lonely planet all by himself! Being dead would've been easier for Mark than the situation he had found himself. Of course he had to get his brains to really work if he was going to survive this ordeal.

He started with calculations, the amount of food, air(Oxygen) and water left on the space base was limited, and the time in which a next mission could be approved was unknown(it may not even happen). No communication to earth as communication masts were damaged during the accident. Really harsh reality poor Mark had to face.

No one knows Mark is alive. He had to find a way to reestablish communication with his guys on base and still keep himself alive until he successfully does that and however long it would take for them to come back for him. Of course no one could save Mark from this predicament. He either found a way to save himself or he dies.

Mark was able to hold on. He even started planting potatoes with his knowledge of botany in the space base. He was finally able to reestablish communication with a very old communication system which he intelligently repaired and operated.

He had a few bad days and all that. He grew lean and was dying at some point, but long story short, Mark Watney survived 2 years of loneliness on Mars before a rescue mission backed by NASA was able to get him back to earth safely.

Look, if you're still waiting for something to come and save you from a particular situation or challenges you've been facing rather than find a way to save yourself, you're really wasting valuable time.

Whatever problem you're facing which is holding you back, find a way to save yourself from it rather than wait and hope on anybody to save you from it.

There is a very good reason why we all face our unique and peculiar difficulties. These difficulties though they may seem negative always brings out the very best in us and increases our knowledge once we are able to successfully pull through it.

Therefore, it is important we learn to save ourselves from our problems by consciously doing something about it. Other people are facing their own problems as well, they have much to deal with in their own lives and they hardly have time to start attempting to come and save you.

We save ourselves by approaching our challenges intelligently, changing our patterns of thought about it and doing what we can. There is always something you can do about your situation, no matter how vague or insignificant.

No saviour is coming to save you. You must seriously and relentlessly try to save yourself. It might be easy, it might not be easy. You might be able to save yourself pretty soon,  you may not be anytime soon, but either ways, you are on the right track once you're always trying.

Keep winning!

  3. I agree that you are on your own. If you don't help yourself, why would anyone contemplate the very idea?

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…
