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…

What It Means To Be The Change


So there's this insight I'm getting in my mind right now and I just wanted to share:
.
Some people think they can only change the world when they do the big things, like getting to some high govt positions, starting a global movement or inventing something that has never been seen before etc.
.
But they forget that with every action we take everyday of our lives we are actually changing the world for every one of us. No matter how little or insignificant you think that action is.
.
Some things as trivial as saying some comforting words to someone who's hurting, sharing opportunities that may be helpful to another person, smiling at someone and even just dropping a helpful comment to fix another person's problem are actually changing the world in many ways than we can imagine.
.
Look back at your own life and see how your present situation is a function of the input of everyone you've come across. From you parents advice to the books you've read, movies, friends, colleagues, down to all the search results, blogs and articles you've been reading online.
.
All of these things were changing you gradually without your awareness. Everyone's input played a role in shaping you. Change didn't just happen overnight. It's an iterative process.
.
So the idea of waiting till we start something big, till we are presidents, ministers or human rights activists before we think we will be able to change the world is wrong.
.
The quote "change begins with you" is deeper than what you see. If you want to change the world, it has to start from being conscious of the impact every action you decide to take now will influence the next person around you.
.
You will begin to see how important leaving that review online really is, you will see how important helping someone else in their struggle really is, you can will care a little bit more than you do presently.
.
Everything will begin to make sense to you and you will see that with every conscious action you take, you are changing the world in a million ways that you can't even imagine.. not just for the present generation.. but your impact will span generations to come.
.
Let's be the change we wish to see in the world. I think we've complained enough already. I used to complain a lot about things not being right and all that. But I realized that people have been complaining years before I was even born.. some have died just complaining.
.
I didn't just want to be a complainer. We already know our situation and what's obtainable in where we find ourselves.. so rather than keep complaining let's be the change ourselves by paying attention to the most little things that we do.. I've seen this approach work much more better than joining the complaining bandwagon.
.
I'm not saying complaining is wrong. By all means complain(it helps release some of the anger in you😆).. but you cannot be complaining forever.. don't dwell in the complaining phase! It's only losers that continue to complain and whine about everything at every time.
.
You must go beyond complaining to doing! To being conscious of what you're doing.. To doing the best wherever you find yourself and have the emotional intelligence to see how your actions would affect your neighbor.
.
That's how every one of us can go beyond complaining to making changes in today's world every single day.. less noise, more work. Together, I believe someday our conscious efforts to be the change will culminate into the kind of world we dream of.
.
Think about it.

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…
