Be Your Own Self

be your own self


"I want to emphasize to you how special you are. Many people are trying so hard to be like other people. The media has filled our minds with all sorts of role models and sometimes, we find ourselves trying to play copycats.

We can learn from people, but we should never try to be like them, not at the expense of disliking ourselves. Do not get lost in the shuffle. Express your own unique gifts and talents. Do not consider your talents insignificant because the crowd is doing something else.

At best, you can only be a poorer fake version of someone else. But you can be the best ‘you’ that ever walked the surface of the earth. Your Creator did not make a mistake in assigning certain talents and personalities to you. Love yourself. Be yourself."
-N.Adesanya

In today's world, we have a lot of people who are not even comfortable in their own skin. They always wish they were someone else other than their own selves. They feel that if only they were in the shoes of another person or if they were that person, life will automatically be a bed of roses.

They often overlook the unseen lives lived by those same people they want to be like. They don't see when those people were unknown and unseen. They don't see when they were working very hard to be where they are presently. They don't see the pain those people passed through to get there.

All they can easily see is a successful person who they just want to be like. Well, becoming successful in life doesn't work by just wanting to copy or be like someone who has already arrived. It starts with being yourself, loving yourself and diligently working on improving your peculiar talents. 

If you don't want to be yourself, by first loving yourself the way you are and being grateful for whatever you presently have, how can you identify your talents? Therefore, learn to be yourself and be comfortable in your own skin. Stop trying too hard to copy another person.

There is something's specifically unique to you that you need to identify, master and develop. If you identify it, your life will be blissful because you have found your ultimate purpose. You will see yourself becoming much more productive, focused and determined.

Find that thing by being yourself.

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…

After Reading This, Your Brain Will Not Remain The Same

I just came across this video on YouTube and I really think it has a wonderful content to be shared here on the bold winner's blog.

Dr. Lara Boyd, a researcher in neuroscience and neurobiology who established the Brain Behavior Lab had some very interesting facts to share with us about the human brain.

Contrary to what we thought, the brain doesn't stop changing or developing at a certain age. The brain constantly changes it's shape, chemical processes and patterns regularly.

And these changes are determined mainly by our individual behaviors. If we choose to change our brains, we must change our actions, what we do, where we go to, what we listen to, what we see around us.

There is no quick fix or drug to enhance neuroplasticity(the ability of your brain to reorganize itself and form new neural connections) than to change your behavior.

An interesting fact is that there is a degree of variability playing a great role in her research. The rates of neuroplasticity varies i…
