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…

Living In The Now Maybe Bullshit

Living In The Now Maybe Bullshit

You hear it almost everywhere these days. They say you should live in the now, you stay present and feel the moment.

They say you should forget about the past and the future but enjoy the beauty that always comes with the present. You hear stuff like this almost all the time don't you?

Well, that's the new age idea that many people are beginning to buy.  And if it's not well understood, those people will not see the hidden bullshit idea they're buying.

When they preach "Live in the now," "Live in the present moment," "Feel the present moment," I think the point they're trying to make is that we should be more conscious of whatever we're presently doing, so we can achieve the best results.

When you're working on something very important for example, you're a surgeon carrying out an operation or you're a soldier in war facing live gun fire or maybe you're a scientist carrying out an experiment or a fast driver on high speed or you're a lawyer listening to the accused, you have to really be present.

You have to keep your attention focused on what you're doing because once your attention is off even for a second, it could be disastrous or you could miss very important information (the only reason why I may ever buy into living in the now). This is because you don't need to be thinking of the future or the past when you're in such conditions. Deep focus on the now is needed.

However, when some people interpret living in the now to mean that you should never think about the future or consider the past before taking any decision, then it becomes total bullshit. Because, when you see through that interpretation, you'll see that it will make you miss many things and consequently become lazy.

If you cannot see beyond the present when you need to, then how can you ever make any progress in life?

They say you should always forget about the past and the future and just breathe. Just enjoy the breeze, the insects, the sun rays, seriously? Then how can you ever make good use of your time?

Every reasonable man or woman has to plan himself or herself very well to meet any possible outcome. You can't just sit around living in the now.

We have a lot of useful lessons from our pasts that we can apply to our present moments. We cannot scrap all those important lessons in the name of living in the now.

It's important to anticipate possible outcomes for the future, to enable us keep working towards what we want. Or else, we will find ourselves lying around wasting our time, and we won't even take advantage of opportunities that come our way because we never anticipated them.

This is why I say that "Living in the now maybe bullshit" and that's if we allow the philosophy make us become indolent and laid back.

This unforeseen laid back attitude is obviously what people are accepting more these days in the name of living in the now. They don't want to work, they don't want to plan, they don't want to stress themselves, so most of them find comfort in just living in the now.

This is why I am writing this article. Bold winners are not lazy people. They don't accept philosophies because it comforts them and makes them relax. They stay focused. They stay present when they need to be present, they think and plan for the future when they have to, and they remember the past and apply the lessons learnt when they have to.

Bold winners aren't stuck anywhere within the past, present or future. They know that these three are interconnected and one cannot do without the other. Only change is constant.

That's why bold winners know that living in the now should mean one being conscious of what he or she is presently doing rather than always being stuck with the present. It's crazy.

You need to know when to live in the now(be present), when to consider the future(but never get stuck worrying about it) and when to remember lessons from the past(rather than keep regretting it).

You should be careful not to buy into laziness and irresponsibility because you think everything is in the now.

Everything is interconnected. And you have to work towards whatever you desire to achieve.

There's no other shortcut. Don't pretend to be happy just because you want to escape your responsibility.

Never buy into bullshit ideas hidden behind maxims 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…
