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…

When No One Sees You

When no one sees you

Every great and successful person has at one point or the other been in that position when no one sees them or know that they exist. In this position, your opinions may not count and many may not take you serious.  But it is also your actions and activities this stage that will determine if people will ever see you or not.

Right now, you may be working so hard, doing what you can to save up money for an important venture which may change your life. People may be looking down on you, on what you've decided to do, they may even insult you, say negative things about you and belittle you.

You might be a really good and straight forward person whereas some people may think you're not smart because you've refused to be a cheat, an unfaithful or a fraudulent person. Your opinions might be frowned upon even though they're very good and correct.

Guess what? People's reactions to you at this level of your life don't matter. As long as deep down your heart, you've got a vision, a target and a plan, your business now is to focus on taking the steps you need. Right now it's safe to say you're still underground. No one will really give a damn about you or your life until at least you really prove that you're worth knowing.

This underground stage when nobody sees you is very important because it is the stage where we are refined and equipped with what we need to excel in life. But it takes an open mind to learn from this level and progress past it else one remains stuck.

What you do at this stage really counts. Your ability to recognize and seize opportunities, your ability to read and understand the emotions of other people, your ability to manage your time well and pay attention to details and your focus and determination; all these things count at this position.

When you're able to make tremendous progress in these things, you're certainly breaking out. But you have to pass through it first neglecting any distractions. It's pointless to get mad at people who may slight you, disregard you or ignore you right now. It's pointless because there's no point being bitter about it as you gain nothing.

So when you're underground, hustling and unseen, don't let your mind be bugged by all those trivial things. Your mind should be bugged by one thing and one thing only: your MISSION. Everything you're doing must be taking you one step closer to where you ideally want to be. You should dream and desire it, then eliminate distractions and do exact what you need to do.

When no one sees you, remain true to yourself.

When no one sees you, don't be a cheat, be a man or woman of integrity.

When no one sees you, don't lose your self esteem, know your worth.

When no one sees you, don't get envious or depressed, just stay focused and keep trying your best given any little opportunity.

Because in the end, you won't stay underground forever, your diligent efforts will be rewarded, your attitude will be rewarded. Life always rewards the deserving, no matter how twisted life may appear.

So when no one sees you, don't give up, one day you'll definitely be seen and heard.

Keep winning and stay bold.

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…
