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…

At The Speed Of Thought

Jets at thought speed

Today I want to share with you guys a secret that helped me overcome procrastination. Procrastination as we all know is the thief of motivation and success. I call this secret "At the speed of thought."

The human mind is one of the most complex and misunderstood concept in human beings. Lots of thoughts go on in our minds on a daily basis that we can not even count.

One minute you're thinking of your work, the next minute you're thinking of someone you love, the next one you're trying to understand a book, you think of arguments and so on. We never run out of thoughts.

What it means is that our thinking is infinite as long as we are conscious. There's no end to the possibility of our thoughts. They will always be there with us and we will never run out of them.

If we want something to be continuous in our personal lives, then we must find a way to associate it with our endless thoughts. And this is where procrastination comes in because it is also one of the endless thoughts, but a negative one.

Procrastination tells you to postpone doing something meaningful for something that isn't usually worth it.

It tells you not to work on your application and relax yourself with a movie or a party.

It tells you to keep putting off actions you have to take for tomorrow and it goes on that way.

What's the solution then?

Learning to do things at the speed of thought.

Since we have a myriad of thoughts flowing through our minds every single day, it's difficult to even achieve anything if we don't have sufficient willpower to follow our thoughts through.

That's why we must follow through the positive thoughts that come through our minds immediately as it comes if we don't want to fall prey to procrastination.

The moment it comes to your mind to do that work, start that application, visit that friend, write that book, clean your house, you should immediately start doing it at that same speed.

The only exception to not doing it is when you have other things you're doing presently. Note: I don't mean when you have other things in mind to do. I mean when you're already occupied doing something else. They are two different things.

Often times, we decide not to do some things because of other things we have in mind to do, but what has been stopping us from doing those things we have in mind? Nothing.

So if an idea runs into your head when you're doing nothing, take action regarding that idea immediately and you'll definitely make progress.

When we do things at the speed of thought, we don't give procrastination a single chance.

Procrastination only gets a chance at you when you delay or hesitate on taking that useful action.

In the military, soldiers are trained to take required action at the speed of thought. You don't hesitate in battle or else you're a dead man.

Split second thoughts followed by split second actions are what the best soldiers are known for.

You don't say you'll protect yourself tomorrow or you take a clean shot tomorrow when you're in battle. You act immediately on the thought if you want to survive. Bold winners know this.

If you really want to be successful in life, you have to face life like a well trained soldier. It's live or die, there's no hesitation in working towards the achievement of your goals.

Follow through your thoughts as fast as they come. Then you'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish with the time you've been wasting.

You waste your time because you allow our uncountable thoughts rule your mind continuously. You don't act on them. You fall into the habit of just entertaining these thoughts. And time is lost.

Once again, the only reason that should stop you from acting on any thought is when you are currently doing something. And if you're doing something and paying attention to it, how will your mind even be easily distracted by other thoughts?

And there's another very important thing: If you're already doing something and an important thought jumps in, then you should write it down so that after doing what you're doing, you can begin the other thought.

That's where having a to-do list comes in. In  a to-do list, you write down every important thing you have to do and tick them off as you do them.

This list is important when you have many things to do and you're confused as regards how to accomplish them all. It's not more important than forming the habit of acting at the speed of your pressing thoughts.

If you've not been practicing this, try it. Act at the speed of thought:

Complete that book, start that training, apply for that opportunity. Just act on thoughts and you'll accomplish more. It's not rocket science. It's a habit that successful people are used to.

Stay bold and keep winning!

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…

Try Discomfort

Many of us would rather settle for the easier way of doing things instead of taking the route that looks difficult at first glance because we hate discomfort. We go for what looks less stressful and never consider to try discomfort.

This attitude is quite understandable because when you think about it, you'll see that most people don't like anything that will "stress" them. Everybody wants it to be easy. But when you look at it deeply, you'll see that it is those people who are willing to take the road less traveled by the majority that eventually find life easier.

Many people prefer to always take the easy way. Instead of moving away from home and try to start living on your own to pursue your endeavors, many matured people these days will rather cling onto the safety of their parents. It's easier for them. There is free accommodation, free money and free food, so what's the point of trying to get things for themselves? They remain there wasting their y…

Why Your Prayers May Look Like A Waste

Many people around the world today pray for a lot of things from God. For some of these people, their prayers are answered soon enough and for some others, God seems to have turned a blind eye to their pleas.

To the latter, they begin to think their prayers are a waste and sometimes they become frustrated and jump into the conclusion that God doesn't exist. This article seeks to explain why your prayers may look like a waste in case they seem to be unheard.

I'll begin with examples:

Meet Fred and Jerry: Fred is an undergraduate student in a reputable university studying accounting. And Jerry is a friend from the same school studying the same course.

Fred had been studying really hard to pass his upcoming final exams and he still makes out time to pray. Jerry wasn't really studying. He was always seen in the chapel praying to pass his exams. He hoped to pass the exam somehow by faith.

The exams came and Fred passed in flying colors. Jerry failed woefully and started blamin…
