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…

Traveling Expands Your Mindset

traveling expands your mindset

Hi guys, it's been a while away from this blog and believe you me, I've been caught up with quite a number of things which has got me traveling to different places in a short period of time.

Prior to that, I spent one year in a city I've never been to in service to my country and my experiences during the entire one year made me a better person. This is the main reason why I think it's appropriate to write about how traveling expands your mindset.

Many people barely travel and spend a better part of their lives living in the same geographical area. They live in the same neighborhoods and meet the same people over and over again. They barely get the chance to interact with people living in other areas or even live with them.

It's not like this is an entirely bad thing, however there is a high tendency to behave and think only in a similar pattern as people who live in your area tends to. This usually happens subconsciously without your knowledge. But you may think that you aren't being affected.

When you hardly travel and keep living in the same place or meeting the same people, you will tend to easily accept their prevailing belief systems and point of views without any proof. Because there's no where else to gain firsthand knowledge about others save from what you hear(which is sometimes very incorrect).

Traveling enables you to actually get first hand experience from people who may share dissimilar opinions and beliefs. You may have had some preconceived ideas about these people and your judgements may have been wrong. When you travel, it gives you an opportunity to interact with them and get to know things for yourself through experience.

Traveling also makes the world look smaller and enables you better understand your environment and terrain. When you travel, you get to come across lots of places you've never been to. You learn new names and new sites. You get to know new routes.

Learning these new things has a way of sharpening your thought processes. And it makes you smarter as you gather a wealth of new knowledge which could be very useful someday. No knowledge is a waste.

Traveling also boosts your confidence and has a way of making you more willing to take risks. We know that self confidence and a willingness to take risks are crucial ingredients to success. Living in fear is usually our barrier. Fear could cripple us.

When you travel to a place you have never been before and you try to live with the people there and adjust to the lifestyle, you may initially have some fears about them. You think about a lot of "What Ifs?" and you are uncertain about how things may go.

But once you start living with these people, these fears begin to gradually die off. This fear only arises because it is your "first time." Once you've eliminated this first time fear, you will find it easier to settle in unknown places. Eliminating first time fears is very key to succeeding in life.

You will also be more willing to travel to new places as you get used to how to meet strangers.

Traveling could also be the missing link to your skyrocketing success! Just changing your geographical location could be the only thing keeping you in that same situation.

When you travel, you expand your life by making new friends and getting to know more fun places to be. You gather story from daily experience and your story could help identify a hitherto unknown problem and bring it to notice or even change someone's mind for good. You could also share these stories with loved ones instead of appearing boring around them.

You could meet someone or gain knowledge from traveling that could turn your entire life around. You could identify opportunities that you never thought existed by traveling and the best opportunities may be waiting for you in another location. Why not make the move?

Traveling expands your mindset in a lot more ways than I've mentioned here and I believe it is crucial to one's success in life. Even if you feel conditioned to stay in a particular place for a long period of time, learn to make out time and budget some amount of money for just traveling to different places. Learn to meet different people and gain proper knowledge of their way of life and system of beliefs. Your opportunity might be waiting for you somewhere.

Travel when you get the chance and the means. 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…
