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…

Stop Merely Wishing, Just Do It

Stop merely wishing just do it

"Stop wishing, and Start doing! Stop wishing for things to get better in your life without taking the necessary steps. Turn your CAN’Ts into CANs and your DREAMs into PLANs.

This is a wake-up call for you to be the change you wish to see in the world.The best way to get something done is to begin. Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. Take the risks; and if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.

There are 3 simple rules in life. If you do not go after what you want, you will never have it. If you do not ask, the answer will always be NO. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place."
- N. Adesanya

Dear Winner,
You see, it's very easy to wish and imagine yourself in beautiful situations or positions. It's easy to say "I'll buy that car," "I'll make a million dollars," "I'll be the best and most successful doctor or actor," "I'll become a big business owner," or even "I'll completely change the world."

It's very easy to imagine them and wish we already had all those things or that we will soon be in those situations. After all, the saying goes, "If wishes were horses, beggars will ride." :) However, you must keep it at the back of your mind that wishes are not enough. For your wishes to come true, you must take very conscious steps towards their achievements.

You can't wish to have a million dollars and expect it suddenly appear in your room by chance. If you're really serious about it, you need to start already working towards by figuring out the steps you need to take and what you need to start doing already to make a million dollars.

Many people are living average lives and stuck in same positions yearly, simply because they only wish for things want, but don't have any concrete plans or commenced any action steps to bring their wishes to reality. Having a wish is not enough. Having a plan is not enough as well. Get out of the wishing and planning stages and enter the "Doing" phase.

The Doing phase is the phase that brings your wishes to you faster than you may have imagined. The doing phase equips you with experience which makes it easier to reach more of your goals. Begin something, start something, do something and keep doing.

No matter how long you sit on the same spot and imagine yourself driving a car, drinking a cup of tea or even buying a house, it will never make these things come true until you go out and get the car, stand up and fetch the cup of water or make payment for the dream house.

We only achieve by doing. This is not to say that wishing is useless or futile. Wishes are like desires, they point us towards a direction. Without wishing for something, it makes no sense doing anything for it. But the key is not to get trapped in just wishing.

The distance between our wish and actually getting that wish fulfilled is our ACTIVITY or ACTIONS. There are no shortcuts.

Make attempts to DO. Never be afraid of DOING whether you MAY get it wrong or right doesn't really matter as long as you're putting in your BEST. As long as you're already doing something to get those things you wish for, you're already on track, it will soon be yours.

Even when you make mistakes in doing, just get up, dust yourself and continue doing applying your new experience to it! You will be far better than those stuck in the wishing zone who are afraid to even attempt.

Life has been designed to favor bold winners who are always doing something to get what they want. If there's one thing you will take away from this article let it be "DO, DO, KEEP DOING, DO, DO, DO AND DO SOMETHING AGAIN.. OVER AND OVER." I love the brand Nike because of the logo "JUST DO IT."

It's not even enough to just do it. Keep on doing. Do more and more. Life is all about your DOING. Your doing changes your life! Your doing is the magic stick that makes your dreams come true. Stay bold and keep winning!

Your friend,
Nigel.

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…
