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…

Be Quiet And Do Something Now

Be quiet and do something now

Time is one of the most wasted resources on earth, you know why? Because there are very few people who understand that "Time is Money" and that "The BEST time to start is NOW!" Learn to be quiet and do something right now. 

If you're still young and reading this, you have so much money, more money than you can ever imagine. But you've got to start working NOW to covert the time you currently have available into a fortune.

If you're much older, all hope is not lost either. Ray Kroc, Donald Fisher and some other people found success during late stages of their lives. So you can still make a big breakthrough.

The catch is that: the earlier you start, the better for you. Opportunity usually doesn't knock twice. Hence, it is important to start NOW to prepare for it, so you don't miss it.

But how are you going to recognize your opportunity if you don't have a mission and a purpose? Answer: You CAN'T. Opportunities are only seen by those looking for it. You can't find what you're not looking for. It doesn't work that way.

Let's say you've got a plan already and you're ready to start working on it, then you somehow find a reason to postpone it to start at a later date. What happens? That future date usually never comes and you forget about it. You've missed starting NOW!

Or, let's say you know what you want to do, but you make the mistake of telling other people your plans and they end up giving you one million excuses why your plans are impractical and impossible. Then you quit. You've also missed starting NOW.

I think it's counterproductive to tell people your plans for three good reasons:

1. It gives you a FALSE feeling of accomplishment. That satisfaction that you have plans can make you lazy.

2. Nine out of Ten people you tell don't give a damn about your idea. That's why they'll be ever ready to give you the epistle of failure

4. You're wasting the time you should've used to start acting now in talking about the action. A complete waste of time.

So what do you do? When you thoroughly make up your mind to accomplish something, keep quiet, think deeply and make critical plans. Don't tell anyone your plan, just start doing something NOW towards what you dream of.

It requires serious discipline on your part. You've got to eliminate all distractions and concentrate on the one single thing you've decided to do. If reading that book, playing that video game or seeing that movie doesn't help in any way to achieve you dream, eliminate it. It's a time waster.

Your luxurious spending must be cut out too. If I could get a phone of 10000 which would be just fine for me, why would I go for one of 100,000 at this level? You've got to cut off excessive spending and  focus NOW your time, energy and money on that GOAL.

Time will come when you'd have enough money to spend on luxury, not NOW. Now is time for serious and dedicated work to whatever you've decided to achieve.

Let me guess.. Some of you may claim that they're confused about what to do or that they don't know what they want to achieve. That's a lie and I'll tell you why.

Have you ever gone online to find an answer to something bothering you? If you have, you'd be honest to admit that you were inclined to take the answers of some web pages while ignoring others. 

Why? Because deep down, you already know the answer. You're only waiting for a verification from the site that suits you. Asking questions when you already know the answer is a complete waste of time.

It stalls you and it prevents you from taking the action NOW. you have to be honest with yourself. You KNOW exactly what you want and what you're passionate about. Stop deceiving yourself, pursue that dream and carve your name in gold when you've achieved.

You must FOCUS. It is important. Complete focus on what you've decided you really want to do. Then persevere and keep using your time NOW. Time will come when you'd have more than enough to get those luxuries you sacrificed and the world will become your oyster.

Till next time.

Remain Bold and Keep winning.

  1. I really like this article but one thing bothering me if someone has big dreams/plans but the only thing hindering the person is money/lack of support from parent/ relatives and the person is losing every little opportunity coming his way.How will the person achieve his/her dream?

    1. Hi Dear,
      Thank you for leaving a comment.
      The answer to your question is to start little. Start doing the little you can. You will face challenges. Your relatives or friends may not be ready to support you and you may not have the capital. But believe me, if you resign yourself as a result of those challenges, you won't succeed.

      Our dreams and ambitions, no matter how big or capital intensive they may be can be started with as little as working on a meagre job.

      Everything doesn't have to be perfect for your dreams to come true. The secret lies in your attitude.

      Do the little you can do at the present. You have a skill. Maybe you can teach, dance, sing, entertain or sell something. Use that little skill and make some money out of it. If you're doing the little you can with a very jovial attitude irrespective of challenges, you will find out that people you don't know will pick interest in you and may even be ready to support those bigger dreams.

      But you won't experience this if you're just sitting around doing nothing but waiting on your relative to support you with big funds.

      Start small, strive, do what you can. Those little things are what holds the keys to the achievement of your big dreams.

      You'll be surprised at how easily you can achieve those big things if you're diligent and faithful in little which is a huge function of your personal attitude.

      I hope this helps.

      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…

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…

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…
