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…

Failure Is Usually The Shortest Path To Success

failure is shortest path to success

Sounds crazy right? You might be wondering how failure is usually the shortest path to success. All I have to tell you now is this: "Take some few minutes to carefully read this article to the end and you will know why it was titled that way.

I'll begin with a personal encounter:
"All my life, I've always tried to be the perfect guy. I never wanted to fail in anything I did, so if I  thought there was a possibility of failing at anything, I just avoided it entirely.

The turning point came in my life when I realized that failure is also a path to success. In short it seems like the shortest path. Because when you fail in doing anything, you simply become better at it despite any shame or embarrassment associated with that failure.

It is when you look at the shame that it hinders you. When you are able to learn your lessons and your eyes are opened to the change that has taken place within you just by making that first attempt knowing you might fail, you will see the light in failure.

So I learnt how to try things out even when the chances of failure were glaring. Sometimes I succeeded, sometimes I failed. But the failures never mattered to me anymore because I saw the beauty of the change that it was working within me."

Like I was, there are many people in the world today who are too afraid to fail. They just avoid trying anything out because they are afraid of many things. They don't want to fail and become a laughing stock.  But they forget that staying idle without trying anything is even what makes one a real laughing stock!

There are accomplished public speakers and comedians who were utterly embarrassed and shamed the first time they tried to do anything in front of a crowd. It was failure to them as at that time. But what they experienced had contributed in building them up to where they are right now.

If you're learning a new skill or how to solve a problem, you will often fail as you are trying it for the first time, but as you get used to it, you become better. You wouldn't have been better than you were if failure wasn't there to test and challenge you in the beginning.

If you're learning a dance step or musical instrument, of course you will fail at it as you learn, then master it with time. Gaining mastery of any art or business is passing through and getting used to lots of failures. Those who are accomplished experts in their fields are those who have faced a lot of challenges disguised as failure, yet surmounted it.

We despise failure so much in our society that we fail to see that failure is inevitable to succeed. They are two sides of the same coin and always working hand in hand. You need to fail in order to succeed. Failure builds your success!

The more available you make yourself in the face of failure, the higher your chances of succeeding. But by locking yourself up and not attempting to try new things or break new grounds in your life, you will still find yourself trapped in the same position.

Don't despise failure and do not despair whenever you encounter it in your honest endeavor.. Give thanks that you had the opportunity to fail and you are made better by every failure. Your success isn't far away.

Stay bold and keep winning! .

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…

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…

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…
