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…

You Are Responsible And You Have Choices


"Today, I want you to understand that you and you alone can make your life better; no one else can. You have total responsibility for what you do. Not only do you have the responsibility to make it better, you have the ability and the power to make it better.

No matter what your current situation is, you have a choice. No matter how bad things are, you have a choice. No matter what you think you can or cannot do, you have a choice.

Once you become open to the idea that you are responsible for your life and that you have choices, you will find that you are no longer stuck just because life is hard. You will be motivated to move on and make things work."
- N.Adesanya

Bold winners understand the power of choice and the place of responsibility in their peculiar situations. The first step is to stop blaming other people or situations for the things you are facing in your life, but instead accept the indispensable responsibility of steering your life to the direction you want.

You must understand that at every point in your life, you have a choice to continue experiencing what you're experiencing or change that reality through action, no matter how impossible it may look to you.

If you've not acknowledged your power of choice, your life will still be swayed by various external factors and you won't feel responsible over what's happening in your life. It will be easy to blame God, your government, your country, your community, your family, your parents, your lover and etcetera. You will shift the responsibility to anything else but yourself.

This is a loser's mentality. You've lost already when you think that you have no choices and you're not responsible to make your life better. Indeed, you're not responsible for where you were born, the family you know or even your gender. But you are very responsible for what you make out of your life despite these things you didn't choose.

If you only take care to look at the world around you, you will see that living a happy and very successful is not even determined by those factors we are not responsible for. People from troubled or poor homes have ended up becoming great. People that were abused as children and faced untold hardship are still making it in life just as some people who were born in seemingly better situations are making it.

Failure as well isn't determined by background, upbringing, race or gender. People born in very nice settings have experienced failure as well as those born in seemingly less better ones. Therefore, success and failure are not dependent on those things beyond our control rather they are dependent on the choices we make and how responsible we are.

If you take a look at the lives of great men and women, you will notice that they all understand the power of their choices and they do not run away from responsibility, not just over their personal lives, but in other spheres of life.

Stop throwing blames on things outside you to justify your current position and experiences in life. As a bold winner, you should throw all blames about your life to yourself. You always have a choice. Make your choices without fear. Be the captain of your ship and steer it into the right course by making the right choices and accepting your responsibility.

Know your choices, accept responsibility over your life and keep winning.

  1. Your minset plays a huge role in the kind of choices you will make for yourself. If you have a negative mindset, it will manifest itself in your life💕 so a positive one is key.

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…
