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 Commit Suicide?


I was inspired to write this article because of a friend who was contemplating suicide because she felt her Dad didn't love her. This was my response:

"Damn.. (name),

Please calm down. You can't kill yourself over anyone. It's not worth it. If your dad is really giving you some headache, distance yourself away from him and stop being too hard on yourself my dear. 

Please, many people out there care about you and they really love you. I care about you too. Else, I won't bother typing this stuff. 

Please, understand that many people love you and want you just the way you are. Moreover, you should love yourself above all else. 

If your Dad is really as terrible as you think, don't try too hard to please him. Just keep your distance from him and still keep in touch with those who really care about you. 

Because the truth is: It's his choice to care about you or not. It's his choice to love you or not. It's his choice to be nice to you or just be wicked. He has his choices. But his choices shouldn't matter to you because you have your own choices. 

You have the choice to keep your distance, respect and honor yourself. Thinking of committing suicide is cowardice. And don't You ever think along those lines again. It's a stupid thought. 

I know such a thought may have come as a way to get back to your dad and prove a point, but it's plain stupid because it won't change anything. Your dad won't probably cry and he may not even give a damn about it. So why think of hurting yourself through suicide. 

The best revenge will be to stay happy. it's a choice you must make. Whether dad loves you or hates you shouldn't matter to you. I mean, why should it bother bother you? 

It's their problem to love you or hate you. But you shouldn't depend on them loving or hating you to be a happy individual. Be happy by doing exactly what makes you happy and going for what you really want. 

Stop this feeling hurt and contemplating suicide. It means you're losing it. I don't want you to lose it. I want you to win it by making yourself happy and being happy even if your dad decides to not care or not love you. 

Be happy. and don't put your mind into it. Okay? I love you and many others out there really do. And your blog's great. Be happy for me and others who love you. Why commit suicide? It ain't worth it. Please."


I've decided to share my response with you guys in case there is anyone else who is thinking of taking his/her own life as a result of someone else's behavior or situation for that matter.

Bold winners understand that no matter the situation they face, whether it comes from another human being or a thing, there is always a way out of it. Suicide is the cowards way out.

No one should take his life over anyone or anything. It's absurd and it just goes to show that one is a loser. You're a winner. You were designed to win and triumph over every challenge that comes your way. You should face them and choose to be happy by making your own choices rather than put your fate IN the hands of another.

That someone doesn't behave in a particular way to you doesn't mean you should take your own life over that person. I mean, you're simply giving control to that person over your own life. Neither should the outcome of any venture move you to suicide. These things are not in control. As a bold winner, you're always in control. Your life is yours and you bloody own it!

So be in control of your life and let nothing control it for you. Live your life happy. And no matter what it is, just don't ever think of taking your own life because it's plain stupid and implies that you ultimately lost.

The joy of winning over challenges that seemed insurmountable is greater than anything else. Find that joy and keep winning. People love you, your success story is coming around pretty soon. Just hang on.

  1. NICs article bro. But sometimes ita not always easy to let go of loved ones even when it seems they arent reciprocating you mutual affection.

    All you tend to do most times is that you always imagine why such person act the way he/she does.

    1. You got a point there Uchenna. However, I think that once you figure out or imagine why they're acting that way, you shouldn't waste too much time trying to correct it when all efforts prove abortive. As long as you've done nothing wrong to anyone.

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…
