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…

An Experience With The Pie

always make the best choice

Today's Article was inspired by my personal experience when I wanted to buy a meat pie. I was really hungry and looking for some snack to devour when I decided to go for the pie.

The seller was a young lady probably in her late twenties and I learnt the pies she sold were tasty. So I ordered for one pie and she quickly selected one of them from the pack, wrapped it quickly and handed it over to me, so I didn't really get to see the pie she selected.

However on collecting the pie, I felt that it wasn't really a complete pie. It was way shorter than the other ones from where she had picked and some parts of it had already broken off. So she literally handed me half of what I paid for.

There were two choices here: To accept the half pie and make payment just like that since she had already wrapped it up or to really demand for a pie that's worth the money I'm to pay. Of course, I preferred to make the best choice of getting full value for my money.

So I politely told her that I wasn't really going to accept that pie and I requested for a better one. She tried to argue that it was all the same and nothing was really wrong with the pie. At this point of some resistance, certain people would simply have agreed with her just to "avoid creating any issues."

But here's something you must know: If you really want to achieve, get or have anything, you must be willing to continue going for it no matter what others may think, say or or do. If you want to avoid trouble or if you tend to consider too much of the risks, problems or outcomes, then you don't really want that thing. 

So, after her initial resistance to change the pie, I still insisted that I didn't want that pie. I wanted another one. I wasn't settling for less when more was available. I wasn't going for a bad choice when there was a better one because I didn't want trouble. I wanted another complete pie, and I was willing to stick with that choice not considering it's costs.

Well she had to smile, return the pie and offer me exactly what I wanted to satisfy my appetite at that point. I smiled back at her and made my payment. And that's how it ended.

That short event got me thinking. What if I had accepted the other pie just like that? Who's loss would it be? What if I hadn't insisted on a better pie? Would I have derived the maximum utility I derived after consuming it?

Choice came to mind once more. You have choices. You know exactly what choices you prefer and those you distaste. Don't let anything make you go for something lesser than what you desire. There's no better feeling and guarantee of happiness than having exactly what you wanted. None.

Bold Winners are of high self esteem, they are also happy and motivated because they make the best choices and go for exactly what they want.

Go for what you want, be happy and keep winning!

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…
