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!

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…
