5 Mindset Shifts You Need To Succeed On Hive

avatar
(Edited)


Hello Everyone,

Hope you guys are enjoying the weekend! When I started my journey of Hive I had a very different mindset. It made me waste a lot of time on petty things that did not even matter. In this blog, I am going to tell you all the things I learned the hard way so that you don't have to. I started applying these learnings and fixed my attitude which pushed my growth graph from linear to exponential. It wasn't a one-day process so a great level of patience is required. These mindset shifts will definitely help you in achieving long-term success as a creator on Hive. Let's begin!

Action Over Perfection

@starstrings01 wrote an amazing article yesterday highlighting the importance of action over perfection. Often times we feel that we do not have enough skills or resources to start creating content or do a new job. If you write, you are a writer. Similarly, if you create, you are a creator. The more you create, the better you get. In order to make things perfect, we do not allow good things to happen. Don't get stuck on a single blog or a video you always wanted to publish. Just get it done, take feedback, learn from it and move on to your next. When you do it thousands of times, you will definitely get better over time. Remember, consistency beats talent and luck any day.

Being Valuable Is Not Just About You

I see most newbies making this mistake. They always think about themselves, their upvotes and their rewards. STOP! Just stop. In order to get value, you must focus on providing value to others. Educate people, and help them in solving a problem. Entertain them or make them laugh. Encourage them to get better in life and make them feel better of themselves. Being valuable isn't just about YOU! Once you understand this simple concept, sky is the limit.

Screw The Rewards

Hive can be a toxic place. I feel it has the potential to do worse things to your brain as compared to other social media platforms. You automatically assume and get jealous by looking at others' rewards. This behavior is not great for your mental health and your focus. This is why you need to quit looking or rather stop caring about the rewards you get or other's get. Just screw the rewards, keep your head down and do your thing. Money will come!

Collaboration Over Competition

Hive is not a zero-sum game. There is no fight going on for the rewards. We are on a level playing field as creators no matter how much money you have in your wallets. A great way to achieve success on Hive is to help each other in achieving different goals. You can try to collaborate with other creators and create something together. That way you can reach more people and your audiences will get to see a nice crossover. People like two of their favorite creators coming together and delivering something new. Since it's a decentralized community, you won't believe that most people are quite reachable and ready to support you if you have some cool idea to execute. You just need to take the first step!

Selling Your Hard Earned Hive

There are some accounts with a high reputation on Hive but now they don't get as many upvotes on their posts. The reason is that they don't have any kind of influence left in the form of Hive Power or their content is not adding value as much. It was easier for them to get the rewards early on since there was less competition. Hive's userbase has grown over the past couple of years. Reputation is a number that could tell you give you an idea about the time a creator has spent on Hive. I have seen many newbies who make the same common mistake all the time. Selling all your Hive is almost a sin! If you are serious about this game, then you must power up your Hive as much as you can. Hive Power gives you influence on the platform. If you don't have influence, you lose others' interest. That being said, you must take profits from time to time and pay yourself too because you deserve it. But during your initial days, try to power up whenever you get the chance and build a base for yourself. You can use my exact strategy and become a pro at this game.

I hope you guys liked all the tips. Please do share your thoughts in the comment section. I am loving my time at the Hive Learners community. The response I got to my recent posts is mind-blowing and it motivates me to create more awesome content for you guys. Thank you and lots of love to everyone. Cheers! 🥂

About selling all your Hive Power, I see it as when someone has lost his vision on here.

I love the fact that you brought out another topic from mine.. Action over perfection, truth is that the more action we take, perfection is built over time. it is not something we can attain by waiting just for the right time. You would learn the more you make mistakes or either, from the mistakes of others.

Good piece of advice's!

I'm kinda newbie on hive but making content since more than a year on other platform and have observed things you stated above.

Getting jealousy is something I've seen in the past platform and it have ruined many of them because of jealousy.

I'll keep them in my mind, #WAGMI.
Happy weekend bud.

Thank you once again IDK. Glad you liked all the tips. How do you find Hive different than other platforms?

Negative emotions are not good for you. But we are humans, they also make us more human xD You just need to know how to control and channel them into something positive.

#WAGMI for sure. xD Happy weekend.

The success of everyone in hive is dependent on what the individual does and how they perceive success. Thanks for this.

That's right! For me, success is reaching 100k Hive and at least helping 100 other people to reach 100k. That would be something. How do you perceive it, bro? I really love how you are doing god's work in Ghana. 💖 That's a huge success as well in my opinion.

You automatically assume and get jealous by looking at others' rewards.

It's very normal especially for newbies to focus so much on the rewards and begin to compare themselves with others. This often results in a toxic behaviour which takes them off the right path and often makes them quit as quickly as they began.

Thank you for this. A lot more people need to see this article.

I feel it has the potential to do worse things to your brain as compared to other social media platforms. You automatically assume and get jealous by looking at others' rewards

Some days back I was discussing this with my partner, how social media in general is toxic and hive isn't excluded, the way people get jealous over people success on other platform so do people getting more rewards here can stand as a trigger for jealous or even hate

But luckily for us here on hive we get great advise daily like yours reminding us of what is important.

Thank you

Nice tips from you!

You automatically assume and get jealous by looking at others' rewards.

It happens to me every time but I learned to enjoy the platform.

The problem in giving value to others is that even you give a value, some of them are not even reading the post.

I should read your strategy. I'm planning to buy more Hive, it's wrong timing because we're high right now. My target is to buy before the HPUD.

What a great publication. I agree that in HIVE, we are not competing against each other, here the philosophy is to help each other, and so we can all grow within the platform. This is one of the things I liked the most about HIVE. The collaboration among its bees as a big family, that's how HIVE works.
Thank you for sharing this excellent post. Success 👍
