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…

Please Don't Commit Suicide!

Please do not commit suicide.

Damn! Been reading about one Chukwuemeka Akachi, a poet and an undergraduate who took his own life..
I felt bad because for at least 6 months, this guy had been giving warning signs. He posted stuff on depression and death.. but then it seemed like nobody took him seriously until he finally did it.
I don't what's moving me to write this post, but I must write it.
.
Suicide is a terrible way to go. People take their lives when they feel their challenges are insurmountable and they can do nothing about it. Their mind is made up because they only see negative possibilities.
.
But by taking ones life, one loses the beauty and surprises contained in the next moment. All around you and contained in each passing second are possibilities. Lots and lots of wonderful possibilities filled with hope and love.
.
But the devil tricks the minds of these people to not see any good possibility and then they eventually choose the easy way out to go by themselves.
.
Whatever you're passing through today, I want you to understand that you are not alone in it and you will never be alone! There are thousands of people who have passed, who are passing and I who will pass through the same challenges. Many of them will eventually survive it and it becomes a story to encourage others with in future. Why be among those who lose out the battle by taking one's life?
.
No matter how bad the devil wants you to see your predicament, the truth is that there is always a way out and you can eventually triumph over it.
.
At this point, I have to stress about the importance of spirituality in one's life. By spirituality, I don't mean that you should always be seen in places of worship or be a hypocrite. I mean you should try to seek God for your own self. Try to get closer to the creator and the infinite source of love through meditation, prayer, practice and study. It will help you go a long way and will give you direction in a world where it seems that a lot people don't care.
.
God always cares, God is always there for you. He brought you here and he has armed you with all you need to walk this earth victoriously. Seek his face and counsel.
.
I say this because a lot of people are bedeviled with depression and often contemplate suicide because they believe nobody cares about them.
.
In extreme cases, a lot of people may not actually care about your existence.. but the ultimate is when you refuse to care for your own self as a result of this.
.
Your own opinion and the way you feel about yourself is the ultimate litmus test. It is not fully dependent on the behavior of others.
.
By the way, everyone isn't meant to value, love or appreciate you. Should that now make you devalue, hate or humiliate your own self?
.
That doesn't just make sense.
.
Deep spirituality really helps. With an appreciation of God, you'll learn to naturally love, cherish and value your own existence irrespective of what any person does or says to you. Then you'll be able to find those who genuinely value you because of who you are.
.
You will understand that this life is not from the outside to the inside(you). The world is from inside to outside.
.
I think I'm typing too much.. just think about these things. Whatever you're facing, know that it is a challenge you can actually overcome. Know your maker and know yourself. It goes a long way.
.
I don't often ask people to share my posts, but please share this post of you find it encouraging and supportive. You never know whose life you may get to save as a result.

Have a nice day.

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…
