Constant Reminder| When You Feel Like Giving Up, Remember Why You Started in the First Place..

I can’t emphasis enough on this.

I am one of those that have been feeling pretty overwhelmed lately. Give the circumstances and what is going on on the platform lately, I guess it’s safe to say most of us are. For me it has a lot to do with the proposed 50/50 rewards proposal. That kind of really threw me of. I think it might be rolling out this HF21 & there’s not much any of us can do about it.

When I think of quitting, most often than not, I remember this great quotes, not only talking about Steem, but life in general.

* When You Feel Like Quitting, Remember Why You Started in the First Place….

* If You Feel like giving up, look back at how far you have come…

* It Doesn’t Matter How Slowly You Go, As Long as You Don’t Stop…

And So On…

I don’t know about you guys, but I have always dreamt about having an ultimate digital lifestyle, for as long as I can remember. The 9-5 is completely not for me. I tried it so many times to no avail. I actually got fired on my last permanent position because I was so uninspired and hence could not deliver.

So, When I think about going back to a 9-5, most often I end up being so motivated to keep doing what I am doing here. I don’t know when, but I am certain a lot of hard efforts are going to pay off eventually. For me, I just need a $4 Steem & I can confidently say it was all worth it. That would be a great start to my ultimate digital lifestyle. How I long for that day.

All in all, I hope you feel encouraged to keep on creating, to keep doing it from your heart. To find people who resonate with your content, people who get you and above all, people who will hold your hand & move up with you.

What Motivating Quotes do you refer to when you feel like life is really getting a kick out of you?

Happy, Blessed, Fulfilling Weekend to Everyone <3

Some of Us Have to Work Twice as Hard & That’s OK|Wake UP. Show Up. Create. Repeat!

What is it that they say?

Success is No Accident..

Today I can’t help but reflect on what it takes for some of us to actually reach some of the goals we have set for ourselves. Be it on our STEEM blogs or in life. I have come to the realization that some of us have to work twice as hard to achieve what others seem to achieve on just the first round. Ans that’s perfectly fine.

Why is that?

Some would argue it’s just bad luck or the universe’s way of balancing things out, but I’d argue circumstance and Law of Attraction. Ever wondered why it is so difficut for negative people to actually achieve anything good? Why most of their life seems like such a mess? I strongly believe in the law of attraction, the energy you send out to the universe eventually comes back to you

So, if you have to work twice as hard to keep that positive mindset to send the positive results you desire in your life, I say do it. If you have to work twice as hard on your blog to get your desired payout or your desired following, influence then do it! Whatever it is, work as hard and as smart as you possibly can to make it happen.

It is not until this moment that I have realized how much work I’ve hard to put in to bring my Steem Blog to What it is now. I remember when I started out I could hardly earn $1 on a post, most of it were cents and I tirelessly made 3-5 posts per day for nearly 6 months before I got any positive results.

My First most memorable post was worth $5, I cannot tell you the excitement that came with it, how eye opening it was, how I could eventually see potential in the Steem Blockchain as every content creators dream come true. Being paid in real time for a job well done, either in photography or blogs or vlogs, I could finally see myself doing this fulltime.

Later on when I discovered DTube, I made a freaking $80 0n my first DTube Vlog. To date, that still remains my most highly post. and I still remember it like yesterday. Since then, I have created at least a single Dtube Vlog on My DTube Channel, and at least 2 posts a day on my Steem Blog.

Why? Because I have a dream and a vision, that my blog will either be a way out to financial freedom or my back up retirement plan. If I have to work twice as hard to make that happen, then that is what I will do. That is what I do on a daily basis.

My Motto?

Wake UP. Show Up. Create. Repeat!

There is power in consistency I have come to learn, after all, the key to success is consistency right?

Of Easter Traditions… Happy Easter Weekend Y’all!

Source

It’s the infamous Easter Weekend!

Not sure if it’s such a big deal out there, but here, the most exciting part about it for most is getting a free day of off work! People love public holidays, it’s always a great reason to over indulge in food and mostly alcohol! I bet most started getting ready for this Weekend when the month began.

We have such a strong drinking culture in Kenya it’s no longer something we can conceal. On most other normal Weekends, Partying Starts on Thursday evening(Cause Thursday is the new Friday) and ends on Sunday Evening.I was guilty of this back then when I was in corporate. We’d get so excited at the thought of the weekend approaching.

Now, I can only imagine how excited most offices were this entire Week. This was and most likely will be the longest Weekend they will have for the rest of the year. I guess when you think of it as such, then there’s no shame in indulging as much as anyone possibly can.

The point of this post however, was to ask you guys what Easter Traditions you have wherever you’re from. I see people talking about Easter eggs & Easter bunnies on my timeline, and quite frankly, I have no idea what that’s all about, but it’s great to see people get excited over colorful eggs & bunnies. They are beautiful.

Besides the drinking and the partying, those that don’t really indulge tend to go to church, especially on Good Friday, and just praise & worship, remembering that God is the season for the season. Depending on where one is, it sort of feels like a Mini Xmas. And who doesn’t like Christmas right?

While personally I’ll not be indulging in anything (I will be here creating & pushing as always), it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. In fact, I want to encourage you to go out there and enjoy this long a** Weekend, do that one thing you have been wanting to do but putting it on hold. Personally I don’t have any of that at the moment, but if I did, I would so be jumping on it.

Other than that, I just wanted to take a minute to Wish You All An Amazing Easter Weekend! Have a Blast!

Lotsa <3, Elsie.

My Less Than 2 STEEM Lunch?| The Power of the Steem Blockchain…Reflections & Motivation…

Probably not the best of food photography I have taken, but that is besides the point of this post. You see, recently I was at the city center and had this simple lunch, some fries and a bottle of soda. It really got me thinking of the power of the STEEM blockchain. This meal cost me just 2 STEEM, that’s less than $2 for those of you aren’t as familiar with the STEEM platform.

It just blows my mind when I think of how many people’s lives STEEM could potentially change. Imagine all the people out here struggling to get a job to feed their families , at this point Venezuela comes to mind and all the 3rd world countries that struggle so much on this end.

For $2 Steem Lunch, I can have breakfast, lunch and dinner from all my earnings though content creation on my Steem Blog from just one post a day. How insane is that?

This is the power of blockchain opportunities and platforms. I never really understood it as crystal and as I do now. So every-time I create content, I feel rather fortunate and passionate to keep it going, with the thought of the possibilities that lie ahead.

When I first joined the Steem Blockchain as a content creators. It was at STEEM’S All Time High in terms of price. I remember reading content of people buying trucks with their Steem Earnings, I remember reading about @surfermarly’s Steem Bought Land and House project, I was hella inspired and excited and in this moment, as I write this, I have that great gut feeling, encouraging me to keep going. How that going by the way girl?

How Much does 2 STEEM (<$2) get you in your country?

Even though I don’t indulge much with my STEEM Earnings, just knowing I can cash out and treat myself to anything I please is satisfaction enough. After all, they do say good things come to those who wait right? Keeping my eyes on the price for that $7.77 as @nathanmars would say. Here’s to making Steem Great and to Spreading the word to those that need to hear about it the most, like you, the one that just discovered my WordPress blog. What are you waiting for? 🙂
