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…

Use Your Tool


Every one of us has been created with unique sets of tools in the form of talents. These tools are there for us to utilise them and become the best version of ourselves. The more you use your tools, the more tools you acquire.

Take for example a child who has been enrolled in school. He starts doing very well, using his brain as a tool to understand his subjects and pass his exams in flying colors. This earns him extra tools in the form of results and certificates which he can use to access other greater possibilities.

Or you can think about that child who wasn't privileged to complete his education. The child may be smart, but his parents were not able to continue catering for his fees. The child is forced to work with maybe his father or mother in business. There he learns about a passion for buying and selling. He picks that up as a tool and eventually turns out a big businessman and was finally able to complete his formal education.

You may think of another child who never had an opportunity to go to any school, born to indigent parents who were so poor, they could barely feed him. The child grows up in an atmosphere of hardship and gets to learn about life the hard way. However, while growing up, he discovered that he had the unique ability to make his friends or just about anyone in his community laugh out loud. He harnesses this tool and becomes a professional comedian in his locality, living comfortably and breaking out of the poverty chain with his earnings.

Imagine that young girl, who's fed up with school, discovers her passion for cooking and uses this tool to start up a small scale restaurant which grows beyond expectation and leads her to expand her cuisine business to a larger population accumulating lots of profit for her.

These are just random scenarios, but they are quite common to a number of people. We all have unique tools at our disposal, no matter who we think we are or where we have come from. Everyone has a tool. The difference between the successful people in life and the failures lies in how well these tools are identified and made use of.

There is something unique about you. It might not just be one thing, it could be many things, but whether it's one or many, at least something sets you apart. It may be the way you smile, the way you read, your style of writing, the way you solve puzzles, the way you cook, the way you sing, the way you dance or act and just about the way you do any other thing.

You must maximize and make use of the peculiarity or all those peculiarities you find in yourself. There is no single standard to judge everyone because we are all different and we are not meant for the same things. If you're not unique in reading and writing after trying too hard, there's no need to be bitter at yourself or become jealous of those who are exceptionally good at it, simply because: not being good at it means that you're good in some other fields. It's your duty to figure out that place which you're good in. Figure out other tools you can use.

The focus should be on building something out of nothing with ANY tools we can lay hands upon. The particular tool used don't matter. What matters is that you're building something with a tool. That's what counts. So, take an introspective look into your personal life today, ask yourself if you're using your tools. If the answer is no, pick any of your tools and start building something on it. If yes, keep it up!

Some people, like myself, are multi-talented and they find it difficult to select a particular tool for building. My advice to such people is this: You're lucky that you're multi-talented, it means that you have many possibilities to build and create what you want, instead of wasting time trying to figure out the best tool to use and develop yourself, simply pick on any of the tools and start building something with that particular one you picked, other tools at your disposal will find a way to play their roles in that building you've started with one particular tool.

 Anyone of your tools are okay. Building is the goal. If along the building, you feel like the tool you picked isn't good enough, feel free to switch tools and continue to build something. That's the key for multi-talented people who are pretty confused on which talents to develop. It's easier for people talented clearly in one thing.

Use your tools and just keep building something!

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

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…

Why Your Prayers May Look Like A Waste

Many people around the world today pray for a lot of things from God. For some of these people, their prayers are answered soon enough and for some others, God seems to have turned a blind eye to their pleas.

To the latter, they begin to think their prayers are a waste and sometimes they become frustrated and jump into the conclusion that God doesn't exist. This article seeks to explain why your prayers may look like a waste in case they seem to be unheard.

I'll begin with examples:

Meet Fred and Jerry: Fred is an undergraduate student in a reputable university studying accounting. And Jerry is a friend from the same school studying the same course.

Fred had been studying really hard to pass his upcoming final exams and he still makes out time to pray. Jerry wasn't really studying. He was always seen in the chapel praying to pass his exams. He hoped to pass the exam somehow by faith.

The exams came and Fred passed in flying colors. Jerry failed woefully and started blamin…

Try Discomfort

Many of us would rather settle for the easier way of doing things instead of taking the route that looks difficult at first glance because we hate discomfort. We go for what looks less stressful and never consider to try discomfort.

This attitude is quite understandable because when you think about it, you'll see that most people don't like anything that will "stress" them. Everybody wants it to be easy. But when you look at it deeply, you'll see that it is those people who are willing to take the road less traveled by the majority that eventually find life easier.

Many people prefer to always take the easy way. Instead of moving away from home and try to start living on your own to pursue your endeavors, many matured people these days will rather cling onto the safety of their parents. It's easier for them. There is free accommodation, free money and free food, so what's the point of trying to get things for themselves? They remain there wasting their y…
