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…

Failures And What People Have Said Or Done To You Don't Matter

failure doesn't matter

"I want you to always keep in mind that you are too big to be a dwarf, too loaded to be a mediocre. Many times, we limit ourselves because we do not know the potentials that lie deep and untapped within us.It does not matter if people have said or done things to condemn you in the past. 

You have your future to prove every one of them wrong. The legendary Henry Ford, the owner of Ford Motors was nothing to be reckoned with in the academics, but he turned out to become a genius in the automobile industry.

When Henry went to school and failed, he was encouraged to learn bicycle repair. There he developed until he became a Motor Manufacturer. At the age of forty, he ventured into car manufacturing, and against all odds he became the household name we know today. By the time he was sixty years of age, he was one of the world’s richest men of his time! Believe in yourself and make your life count. You can do it!"
-N.Adesanya

Your resolution to excel and prosper in life shouldn't be defined or shaped by what people have said or done to you(Best to forget them entirely). It shouldn't even be shaped by the failures you've encountered on your journey.

As a matter of fact, anytime you fail, you should pat yourself on the back knowing that you've gained additional experience that can help you and that you're better off than those who haven't even tried that same thing at all.

The fact that other people have called you a failure, a good for nothing, a useless person or a lowlife in the past doesn't matter. It doesn't count and it should never count in your life if you're a bold winner. People can say whatever they feel like saying, but what is important is what you're saying to your own self. How do you perceive yourself?

If you've failed many times and people call you a loser, the worst thing you can do is listen to them and ALSO call yourself a loser. If you've understood the whole concept of what vast potentials you possess as a unique individual, you will see that listening to people's words or feeling defeated during a failure doesn't help you at all.

You've got to believe in yourself. And I'm not here to give you some motivational speech which you'll probably forget soon enough. I'm here to tell you that motivational speeches won't help you if you don't even believe yourself and if you've let your mistakes or people's words destroy that quintessential belief in your own self.

It's so important you believe you can. It's so important that you don't dwell on any negative thing from the past because it stops you from experiencing the present and creating your future. You should be new every moment. Your belief in yourself should be refreshed and renewed daily.

When you continually do this, you will see tremendous changes happening in your personal life and you will build a formidable self - esteem.

Stay sharp and keep winning!

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…
