Key To Leofinance Success: Watch Your Own Wallet

Many are like kids in grade school. Instead of focusing upon their own test paper, they cannot resist letting their eyes wander onto that of someone else. This is not a way to learn nor is it a way to get ahead in life.

Sadly, we carry this habit with us throughout life, never growing on. On Hive in general, and Leofinance in particular, it can be a way to sabotage ourselves very quickly.

In this realm, as opposed to looking at the paper next to us, we are now focused upon the wallets of others. We do this with emotions of envy, lust, and longing. Oh how we want to be like them.

The only problem is we also do it with distain. The Whales are mean. They don't love me. Their only care about themselves.

After all, in my first post I wrote an epic that should rank up there with classics such as Gone With The Wind. Therefore, my first article should be on the front page of every frontend tied to Hive.

Obviously, this is taking things a bit to the extreme yet isn't that what people do?

Tend To Your Own Garden

There is an old saying about tending to one's own garden. If you are busy looking at your neighbor's the weeds will overtake yours. The only way to deal with the situation is to focus upon your own garden.

On Leofinance, the garden is your own wallet. You have the choice to have it overrun with weeds. Or, if you tend to it properly, perhaps you will get wonderful tomatoes out of the deal.

Of course, if you are worried about the gardens of others, it is guaranteed that your garden will be sick.

Lately, we did some discussing about how smaller accounts can have an impact on Hive. This concept is taken to another level when one focused upon a community such as Leofinance. When one is contributing consistently, it is easier to stand out in a community such as this.

We regularly discuss how engagement is key on a platform such as Leofinance. Those who are following this suggestion are finding that others are reciprocating.

All of this amounts to tending to one's own garden.

Massive Engagement

Here is a post that went up the other day discussing this very topic. It focused upon the work of @Littlebee4 and the growth of her account. There are a few things that stand out about this post also detailing the impact smaller accounts can make:

  • Scroll through the comments and notice how many of them have upvotes. There are a number that are going to receive some payout in LEO as well as HIVE. Granted it is not going to make someone rich but if people are doing that daily, it adds up over time.

  • There are over 330 comments on that article. Notice how many "conversations" were taking place. Ask those people if it was "work" to any of them.

  • Now many want to be like @littlebee4. Keep in mind she is on the site 5 months and people are already following her.

  • She certainly got my attention based upon her interaction. I did not find her based upon her articles or posts. It was her commenting. That is beneficial since my LEO upvote can be pretty healthy.

We even have @khaleelkazi sending out 1,400 LEO to the people who beat him in the engagement contest last week. How would you like to get 100 LEO from Khal?

The 14 people can tell you it is pretty tasty LEO. And how did we get it? By engaging with other members of the community.

Form that same article, look at @hitmeasap. He is the first comment and a book was written. The value of that comment jumps out, over 13 LEO. Leaving that aside, notice where he is now standing with Khal. If Khal didn't know him before, which he did, he would after that epic.

Certainly, the comment was not written with the intention of getting that type of reward. Anyone would be foolish hoping for 13 LEO upvotes on their comments. As we can see it can happen, just not very often.

However, @hitmeasap was tending to his own wallet for months now. He is also experiencing some growth, at least with his LEO. I presume the HP in his account is also following a similar path.

Grow Your Own Holdings

The key to all this is to do what you have to so that your own holdings keep growing. Leofinance offers the potential to get rewarded for activity. This will only happen if one focuses upon his or her own wallet.

Humans seem to have a need to compare. It is like we are all still in high school checking out the size of the breasts or peckers on the others. Instead of looking at their packages, now we focus upon their wallets.

This is not have you get ahead.

Keep your eyes peeled forward and get the keyboards working. Posting articles is important and suggested. People who want to excel at long-form content are welcome to hone their craft here.

However, it is not for everyone. Fortunately, one does not have to be a great writer to excel at commenting. The only thing it requires is commitment.

That is how one will grow his or her holdings.

In conclusion, I am going to leave you with a secret. Look at the list of top 10 accounts with their comments last week. Outside of myself there are 9 on the list (9+1=10). From the chart we cannot tell what was earned. However, I can tell you that each person received a number of upvotes from me during the week on their comments.

Each upvote is worth .9 LEO, or a payout to the author of .45 (if they made the comment through the Leofinance frontend or mobile app).

So there you have it. Watch your own wallet and comment like there is no tomorrow.

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comment section below. Could we get another 200 comments out of this one? Just a hint, there might be some upvotes given in the comment section.

I need to vote more comments on posts that I read. I always vote my readers but slack when it comes to curating comments in other places even though I read a ton of them. But besides you and a few others, I don't receive a lot of votes when I do comment. I'm definitely not in it for that. Im a curator to try and distribute the token to everyone so don't care if my comments get votes but It would help me build my stake faster. with my 5,000 LP I'm able to earn just about 1 leo per day and give that amount out. It is starting to yield fruit.

I keep losing so much voting power. I need a bigger stake so I can cut the vote value in half and give out twice as many. I don't like commenting without voting but I run out. Im using vote weight multiplier which is helpful. It allows me to vote here and then go off to peaked to curate on hive.

It became a nice round number for me. Easy to manage but not done on purpose. I spent 1000 leo on polycub and might spend 500 more. I would rather spend leo than hive on leo projects but I might be better served to have not participated and power up. I was actually completely liquid a few months ago. I recently powered up the 5000 because I felt bad about commenting and not voting. I like curating.

POLYCUB is looking like a bottom formed. There was a lot of price decline but the airdrop is coming to an end.

Next up is the halving which will reduce the emissions even more.

Couple that with the expected release of pHIVE and we could see some instant buying pressure just as the emissions are declining.

My LEO growth has been awesome, both due to rewards on posts & engagement, but most of all due to the prices, as I buy LEO for my HBD rewards.

However, I am not likely to continue doing the same once I reach my milestone of 5K LEO. I will probably change my approach once that happens. (Hopefully before the end of next week!)

In this realm, as opposed to looking at the paper next to us, we are now focused upon the wallets of others. We do this with emotions of envy, lust, and longing. Oh how we want to be like them.

Funny you say this. This is my last comment before the one I am writing right now:

Yeah, comparing ourselves or our results with others tends to lead to misery and anxiety. It's often discouraging instead of encouraging, which ultimately can lead to giving up because things aren't "fair" and whatever things you can come up with. - Comment

However, everything you've said here is accurate, on point and extremely true. We compare our own results (wallets) with others. It's literally a shortcut to disaster.

We have seen people doing this (comparing themselves with others) who tries to come up with a "quick fix" for it by turning into beggars who does everything they can think of to get attention of whales and larger accounts, in desperate moves to earn. - It doesn't work.

In fact, it is far more likely that it will turn potential upvotes into downvotes instead, or that people block/ignore those people due to the greedy behaviour.

Everyone wants money. All of us are looking for more tokens in one way or another, but why on earth would someone who's been putting in time, effort and hard work for years (or invested a lot of FIAT to buy stake) just give a bunch of random beggars money for no reason?

It doesn't work like that in real life and it doesn't work like that on the blockchain either. People are rewarding value.

While value lies in the eyes of the beholder, it doesn't mean that anyone will happily give away money/tokens for nothing.

Be valuable, in one way or another for others and you will be appreciated and rewarded for those contributions, sooner or later.

The fastest way to earn is to figure out what someone else sees as valuable. Engagement? Specific types of content? You name it. Want to grow faster? - Do more. Be of more value.

Once you find those "golden nuggets", just rinse and repeat.

Adding value is something people need to consider more. For me, if I never put in the effort to engage, I don't think my posts would have really succeeded.

My little experience here on leofinance has showed me how just staying true to a cause or just doing what you like to add more value to the community is very vital and will reflect in your overall performance.

Just let it come natural and the rewards may or may not come later, it doesn't have to be about how much you're earning but how much value you are adding.

I did get a huge upvote in one of my comments some days ago which is 30+ Leo from onealfa and other curators too.

Adding up your 0.9 per vote is even not yet added into the mix for that day, all this will add up to something big with time.

There's definitely potential to reach those prices. What has been worrying me in the past has been the lack of engagement, how curators constantly rewards internal content (inward-facing) rather than external (outward-facing content) and that we've been missing out on tremendous amounts of organic traffic due to the lack of optimized content..

Lately though, things have changed and it seems to be a lot more focus on all these different things simultaneously nowadays, which makes me believe the these "new heights" we're longing for will be within reach in a rather near-ish future.

My little experience here on leofinance has showed me how just staying true to a cause or just doing what you like to add more value to the community is very vital and will reflect in your overall performance.
Just let it come natural and the rewards may or may not come later, it doesn't have to be about how much you're earning but how much value you are adding.

One those mistake we make as a beginner in this this is that we so much focus on earning and not value and this happen sometimes majorly because of those people that introduce us without properly orientate about how things show be done.

Adding up your 0.9 per vote is even not yet added into the mix for that day, all this will add up to something big with time.
The goal should be to keep growing at your own pace every day and doing better than yesterday.

This is what we fail to realize that everything will add gradually and all our efforts will be rewarded as time goes on . The best thing is never to give on one’s self

It is a very interesting topic, friend, since we usually make that mistake and see other people's wallets as if it were our own and sometimes we want them to support us, when they can dispose of their money however they want and are not obliged to support us. The only thing left is to work hard and gradually reinvest how much or how little we have earned in the #Hive family.

I rarely look at someone else wallet. And when I do, I usually try to get a hint on what coin/token they are strongly supporting. When I am not familiar to that token, I do some research about it.

Anyways, I agree, a lot of person tends to look at what others have instead of focusing on how they can improve on their own.

Personally, I do tend to put more importance on the "conversations" as compared to the token/coin that I would get from upvotes. Don't get me wrong, I do love some free tokens/coins. However, building a strong relationship with the community is far more beneficial in the long run. That is what I believe. :)

I would love to think that the community is my garden and my wallet is the basket for the fruit of my "crops". :)

A good way of thinking about it in my opinion. We are now to the point where I believe enough people are starting to clue in. This will start to get very exciting in terms of the "relationships" we can build.

From there, the tokens/rewards will follow.

We need to just focus what is ahead of us. That is why I like to impress upon users to look at their account in terms of percentage growth.

That is what truly counts. Where will your wallet be in 3, 6 or 12 months?

Just keep your head down and do the little things. When you look in a week, a month, a year, and compare where you are then to where you were, you will be absolutely astonished by how far you've come.

Remember, this stuff all compounds. Daily. While you're adding tiny bits and pieces from comments here and there, it is all adding up and earning you larger and larger bits and pieces as you go.

Words of wisdom. I think about my slow and steady growth on Hive in general with a long view. Many of us have been on traditional social media (Twitter, FB, IG, YT) for years. How much time did we dedicate to the content we created, commented on, liked, and shared? Did our following on these traditional platforms grow with a wave of a magic wand? Or did it grow over time?

I see what I am doing here and know that it will take time to grow. But since I'm going to be creating content anyway, I may as well create it here where there is a possibility of earning. Note I did not say there was a guarantee of earning. Merely a possibility.

I enjoy the content creation process, getting to know the fab community, and hopefully offering value of my own to add to the overall conversation that is happening here. I look at my garden and I see what will bear fruit in the years to come.

You bring up a very valid point. Many spend a long time building a following on traditional social media yet think it should be instant on Hive.

Also, consider the payouts financially there compared to here.

I never made a dime directly off any tweet I made. There are plenty of comments I made on Hive where I got paid a little something.

Comparison is indeed poison. It makes you give up the battle before it is even started. Everybody around us is successful in one way or the other. Imagine by seeing someone successful in splinterlands or Axie if we choose to not play the game, we would not grow and earn from rewards.

Just because someone is successful does not mean we have to stop living or hustle. Hustle has no ends. Only way to happiness and success is keep going no matter all the people around us are successful while we continue to hustle but eventually hustle compounds and we get the results that we want.

Amen to that 😎

The comments I got… so many want to be like me. 😉 That never works, as I am “me” and I have my own qualities, things I’m good at. And I so do not want to brag… but I am capable of many many disciplines, on a high level.
It just takes work, real work. There are no shortcuts.
It’s not just the comments that got my growth this high, my posts also contributed to that. As this one: 2 beautiful Bridges in Madrid ~ Puente Monumental de Arganzuela and Puente de Toledo 🇪🇸 will show you.

NO but when people focus solely on the wallet, that is all they see and they want to have the same result. Of course, when you talk about work, effort, and focus, they ignore all that. It isnt sexy, glamorous, or orgasmic. Getting paid large sums for little effort is more appealing.

This thing is as old as the fire. I know plenty of users from a few years ago that have quit Hive for particularly this reason.

I was close to doing the same after plenty of months of hard working on my posts, but little to no engagement at all.

I realized the power of engagement and here I am... My advice for a new user would be: if you're not a superstar but crave for exposure start engaging with others.

That's why we call it social media.

Personally, I see no problem with seeing other Hivers' wallets provided that you are thankful for their growth and you are using that information to motivate yourself. Competition in that sense is good. Life would be boring without it.

Others would prefer to compare their current performance with their previous performance. That to me is also a better alternative if one is inclined to be envious when they see others' purses.

The key is gratitude for the opportunity that is set before us. If I understand it correctly, in cryptocurrency, someone's gain is not another's loss. Everyone can grow though with different capacities, and that is fine for that is a basic reality of life. If this is the case, any form of hostility and envy against someone's growth and increasing capital has no place.

I would agree, it does pass with time. Today, I rarely look in the wallet of others unless there is a reason, like to see someone's progress. At this point, I really do not care what people have.

Well if you use the leofinance front end, you get all your author rewards (both on posts and comments). If you use another you use a portion of the LEO rewards to burn (you still get 100% of whatever the HIVE is).

So it is a way to get a bit more in your wallet.

Engagement is key to growth on any platform and healthy competition is beneficial. The Hive engagement league and the Leo are good initiatives and it's a lot of fun if you take it as it should be. I've had a lot of fun in the last few weeks trying to climb and maintain my position in the HEL, let's see what I can do in Leo's ;)

But the problem comes, as you rightly point out, in the comparisons. It is impossible to grow and be noticed if you don't comment. Many people complain about why they don't earn as others but they hardly look at their navel. A lot of people come and go and don't even respond to comments on their posts.

I just received a message from someone with a proposal, quite absurd from my point of view. In addition to Hive, I write for another platform where I have not been active for the last two months due to a lack of time. My articles there receive good rewards compared to those of others. This person wants to use my account to publish and profit from that, which is impossible for me. But he also doesn't realize that it's not just about posting, it's about how you interact with others. If I haven't been posting there it's not because I can't write an article it's because I don't have time to read my followers' posts and comment on them as it should be and even to follow the thread of conversations on my posts. And so until I have more time I prefer to focus on Hive and its environment. But this person is so short-sighted that he thinks it's just posting and that's it.

Engagement is the key, as evidenced by the growth of Jackie (littlebee4) and other accounts not only here on Leofinance but Hive also.

So let's bet that more people who are willing to engage will join Hive and the den.
Have a good day!

I’ve been trying to get on and commnent more with this account on the leo stuff, although I don’t know if I’ll rank much in the league but that’s okay. It’s good to get some engagement going though because in the bear or boring markets when there isn’t a lot of hype or excitement going around one of the best things we can do is just work on being consistent and engaged. In the best times as in the decent or worst times, engagement is key!

This is definitely a start to my new learning curve. I always thought I should keep my focus mainly on publishing posts.

One of my biggest yearnings is to learn more about cryptocurrencies and how to build my portfolio. I was hesitant to take part in conversations though, due to my lack of knowledge.

I am so glad my eyes are opening up to see the reality, that engagement is the best way of learning.
