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?
The only thing that seems to make my days brighter & even more so when it is accompanied by a perfect glass of wine. This wasn’t the best of wines I’ve had, but it served the purpose for the day :D, Which was clearly to create great content for this amazing platform.
This was a platter of some sort, came with some beef curry, fisk and some fried chicken & veggies. To be honest I don’t think we touched any of the veggies lol
Of course if you know me then you know I love my fries so damn much 😀 This were very tasty once I added some ketchup, but then again, I love potatoes so much, they taste great even when boiled lol
And ofcourse, this meal wouldn’t have been complete without my drink of choice.. Ppppfff 😛
I like my wine Sweet truth be told. And I don’t drinking anything stronger than that, trust me, I’ve tried. Perhaps some sweet cocktails here & there, but that’s about it.
@jeanwandimi & I clearly destroyed that platter. Just reminiscing about it makes me want to go back for some more.
And of course it wouldn’t be a complete experience without a selfie of some sort 🙂 If this counts as one.
Hope you guys are having an amazing Friyaaaay Out there. I am certainly trying to make the best use of my time xxo
Exactly my reaction when I looked at Steem’s position on CMC! I know we keep saying there’s nothing wrong with STEEM, that it will catch up and that it is still heading in the right direction, but from where I stand, it doesn’t seem that way! There is power in numbers and right now it seems like we are losing them.
I am not trying to cause any panic or discourage anyone, but I think we really need to pay attention as to why STEEM is drastically falling and under performing. Some would argue it is the constant sell orders by Steemit Inc, but who is buying if they are selling?
Also, I think we cannot solely put it on Steemit Inc, tokens are meant to be trad-able and not just for Holding. If there aren’t enough investors or buyers for the token, then that means there are not enough people finding the value in the token hence the drastic fall.
I don’t know about you guys, but I think we seriously need to look into marketing the platform. Like serious, proper, professional marketing. Not users putting out tweets and posts on social media in what seems like an indirect forceful advertisement, but rather in an informative, fun and friendly manner.
It feels like every couple of weeks I come back here with the same rant to no solution, sometimes, rather most times it doesn’t even feel like people care enough, but I just really wish I knew the secret formula to use to help push this lovely blockchain to the level it deserves. I don’t know what it is, but STEEM is terribly failing at something, and I am not sure this HF21 & EPS is going to make things any better. In fact, I fear it might make things pretty worse.
Can you believe Bitcoin is about to Hit 10k & Steem can barely stabilize at $0.40? Very disappointing!
