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…

5 Ways To Start A New Year



1. Thanksgiving
It is very important to thank God; the giver of life for the gift of life and for every good thing that He sent your way in the outgoing year. Appreciation opens the door for more to come through.
Be grateful for the good things that came your way the previous year and hope for better ones in the new year.

2. Review Your Year
If you don't know the cause of a problem you can't solve it adequately. There is a great need to do a proper year review; highlighting where you missed it and analysing your actions and reactions.
A lot of people don't take this seriously. You don't jump into the new year without taking an introspective look into your life the previous year. Remember, two steps forward, one step back.

3. Learn From The Past But Don't Live In It
After reviewing the year, you will gain the understanding on how and where your actions were futile. You will know with certainty the things and people in your life that are not adding any positivity to your being. You have to get rid of them, otherwise you will remain in a cycle of repeating mistakes.
If you want to progress, don't live in the past or else it will stop you from experiencing the new things that come with new year.

4. Plan For The New Year
Planning goes beyond writing down your intentions and visions on a sheet of paper. Planning starts with and ends in prayer. Isaiah 48:17" I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go" Planning will amount to little or nothing without direction. You need to approach the throne of Grace that God may give you divine direction.

5. Set Goals
What do you intend to achieve in the coming year? Break your plan down into goals backed up with actionable steps. Your goals should including the following;

* Kingdom Goals: This is where you set goals of what you will do for God in the coming year. It shouldn't always be what God will do for you. Remember the Bible says that the harvest is large but laborers are few. You can actually join the team of God's laborers and have a place in God's payroll.

* Personal Development Goals: This is where you set goals on how to improve yourself. You can take professional courses, learn new skills, read new books, etc These help to ensure that you don't go through the year with lots of new shoes and new bags but with the same old self year in year out.

In Conclusion, endeavor above all things to carry your goals back to God in prayer, also dedicating the year to Him and backing all your plans/goals with ACTIONS.

Wishing you a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR..

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…
