IT PAYS TO BE LONG TERM || APPRECIATING THOSE WHO MADE THE JOURNEY POSSIBLE

avatar
(Edited)

I never knew or predict I would come this far on Hive, not even a tiny slight of idea did I have. I only took the platform serious because of the fact it allows me to build relationship and because I envisioned a future where things would get better for me; most especially financially.

I never knew it would come this soon. With the present price of Hive, I am very happy I never gave up in the long run when it seemed very tight. When it seemed very easy to give up and hard to move on. Now it is time to reap the blessings of my hard earned effort, sleepless night of searching for inspiration on what type of content to make.

Now I wonder, what if I gave up as most of my friends did? As my brother did? where would I be. Staying in faith in something you believe would surely pay in the long run. I had faith in Hive and I gave it my all, in fact I gave it my life.

I look back at where I have come from and where I am. The distance I had gone so far is not what I thought can ever be. Now, I understand why they say; The Journey of a thousand Miles Begins With a Step. If I never made each of those steps, If I had decided to turn back then most of these words I say would never have come to meaning to me.

If you are reading me at this moment, and you are just at the beginning of making that step, then I tell you: MAKE THAT BOLD STEP. Don't think you can't continue because you have a long way to go but instead, envision a future of you achieving your dreams in which what ever step you make now would make that future possible.

Do not be too focused on what you would make or earn now because, If your goal is in the present then you would loose focus and give up before you even started. My advice is: Find a mentor/role model, Someone you would envision yourself as and someone who would lay you advices because that is the only way to fight the bad energy of giving up. Don't think you can do it alone, because that bad energy would surely come.


Meet the boss @josedicuss

My mentor/role model is @josediccus and he still remains that. I remained active everyday because I said to myself if he can make it, then I can make it. I was far behind of @josediccus but yet I believed that life is not a rush and that accomplishments are made from little actions and contributions we make into achieving our goals and not giving up.

For the honor of thanksgiving, I would love to appreciate few people that have met while on this journey because this journey would have not be smoother without you all. First I appreciate @josediccus and @k-banti, you guys are not just friends but brothers from another mother to me. Our bond has grown strong than just friendship and this is possible because #hive made it so.

I appreciate @eddiespino, a friend who has always supported my ideas, project and contributions to Hive. Man, you are an angel from heaven. I am grateful for having you as a friend.

I appreciate @acidyo and the whole ocd team, this is because onboarding has been made easier. Even though I may onboard slowly, I do it so I can keep easily track of those I bring in. Thank you for accepting to join the ocd onboarding team. Not only me but all those who I have invited to Hive remains grateful for it.

I appreciate @projectmamabg, she has been supportive. There are so many things I would have been able to do without her. Due to me still being a student, it is very hard to manage most project and ideas I have on hive. That's when she comes to be my superhero. I appreciate you @projectmamabg.

I appreciate @chosenfingers and @monioluwa. I recently onboarded this two guys to Hive from my University and they have been very supportive in my ideas and plans to build a Hive Community in my school. Advertising, and telling people more about Hive would have not been easier without them. Thank you guys.

Also, to @heskay and @mayorkeys, they are my roommates at school. I introduced them to Hive too and ever since they have followed my path into not giving up, making creative content, and building relationships on Hive. I thank you for always motivating me and pestering my life sometimes 😂😂😂.

My last set of appreciation goes to @visionaer3003, @dagobert007, @fw305, @selfhelpf4trolls, @zartisht, @threespeak and the boss man @ appreciator for finding my post worthy of your time and upvote. I appreciate you all more than words can describe. Thank you!

In a good way. Looks like something big is coming to this post I can smell it.

Indeed, a journey of thousands Miles Begin with a step, you make the determination to be here and give yourself the motivation to keep moving. There's nothing Worth more than self motivation . Because it will drive you to do more with without relenting on your aim.

This serve as a motivation to some people too , I'm not excluded. You're also a source of inspiration and motivation to some people as well. Keep the fire burning 🔥

Very truthful here. Self motivation is the best but at the same time we need to be around those who gives us good vibes and pushes to keep going.

I must say there were times when I almost gave up. I'll make a post and not even get up to $1 out of it. I got psychologically disturbed. Was I doing something wrong?. Then I read some posts, yours included where you talked about your growth acquiring hive and how you'd started. It felt so unbelievable. I had to read the post over and over again and I must say it gave me courage.

You and josediccus are big mentors to us all. Most times you both go out of your way to support others and even mentor them. I'm glad I met you both.

Keep winning my brother. You're already a millionaire. Soon na trillion go dey your account.

I totally agree with you on this

accomplishments are made from little actions and contributions we make into achieving our goals and not giving up.

And I love to "Make that bold step". Lots of time we think we are not good enough or we are not ready to do something, and so we never start making the first move. Without the first move we will never even get anywhere, never know how we are doing in order to fix it and improve it.
It's an endless and exciting journey that needs us to jump all in or get all out.
Once we jump all in, we know what we want, we clear up the rest on the table to focus on what we're doing. From that moment, any little thing we do, we know it is to serve us achieving the goal. The journey becomes more fun and meaningful as well.
Your journey seems to be so exciting here already which inspires me a lot!
I have been seeing the true value of our community here since the first day I joined Hive, and meeting people like you here - once again - re-confirm that I made the right move! 😊 Thank you @starstrings01 ! Cheers!

The Journey of a thousand Miles Begins With a Step.

I fully agree! Sometimes, we're too focus on short-term views that we can't see the long-term benefits of our decision. I'm new in Hive, and this helps me realize that the things and blogs we do in Hive shouldn't be focused financially, but rather on building a strong community for the betterment of everyone 🤍 Congratulations on taking Hive so far! One day, I'm seeing myself like you guys 🥰

@starstrings01

Hello, my friend! And thank you for choosing to use my #thoughtfuldailypost TAG! You certainly are correct in your mindset; from your post:

"I only took the platform serious because of the fact it allows me to build relationship and because I envisioned a future where things would get better for me; most especially financially."

I remember first meeting you at The Terminal... you were always full of enthusiasm and willing to learn! As you moved on, and found your way on your Blockchain journey, you did, and have, continued to make your presence known. All of the Staff at The Terminal hope that helping new folks find their way, will end up in a positive way... it's obvious you have done just that! So... Congratulations!

What a nice journey you have had in #hive, you are now you a person who inspires others. I have always admired you for your work and dedication to the community.

You came out looking so handsome in that cover photo, all around winner 😜😊.

I don't know if it's timely, but I take this opportunity to ask about @tripode I have weeks writing her on discord, she's ok? I ask because I know she was part of your team. I apologize if it is inopportune this question.

Greetings and congratulations my friend, may success always be with you and never leave you.
