When opportunity comes knocking, are you willing to respond?
Most want to say yes to this question but their actions say otherwise. It is why most find themselves mired in the situation they are in.
We need to be honest, success is any area of life is not easy. Great effort is required no matter what it is. Unfortunately, most simply do the bare minimum to get by.
While people are free to choose what they want, and how much effort they put towards anything, most of us are aware of what is done by those who truly excel. They are not lucky. Instead, for the most part, they tend to work their hind ends off.
It all starts with consistency, a word most people evidently do not like. Instead, they opt for the once in a while approach. Those who work out regularly at gyms see this all the time. Many show up occasionally, work out, and they are going for a couple weeks. Genius is not required to conclude what most of their bodies look like.
Hive Is An Opportunity
Actually opportunity applies, in my opinion, to all of cryptocurrency. However, we will focus upon Hive for the sake of discussion here.
This is something that most of us never encountered before. We are seeing many different ways to provide ourselves with life changing money. This is not what most of us get from our jobs or careers. Certainly, there are some who are highly successful at what they do. Nevertheless, for the vast majority, especially in the undeveloped nations, the financial plight is written.
The script is changed with Hive. Here we see opportunities cropping up that eclipsed many throughout life. Even in a country like the United States, few of us ever would be considered "accredited investors". Thus, we were sidelined from some of the tremendous money making projects that are out there.
Cryptocurrency changes all of this. Presently, it is all new. There are ventures showing up each day which can offer the "early investor" scenario. The question is whether we take advantage or not.
Of course, that is not to say that everything is a smart move. We are all aware there is a lot of crap out there. Many projects are doomed to failure even before launch. They are poorly planned, lack funding, or outright scams. It is naturally best to avoid these.
Nevertheless, when we look at the totality of what is taking place, with all the new projects being developed, there are plenty of choices for each of us. Finding something to immerse ourselves in is not a problem with Hive these days.
What Are You Willing To Do?
Here is where the proverbial rubber meets the road. This is definitely not isolated to Hive since it applies to every area of life.
Nevertheless, what are you willing to do to be a success on Hive?
This is a vital question. Anyone who is serious, and truly committed, knows what the answer is. It requires showing up each day and doing what others are not willing to do. That is the magical secret.
Most are not willing to be consistent and put in the effort. How many are leaving a couple hundred comments a week? Are they putting up posts of 750-1000 words each? Do they spend hours learning about the ecosystem or specific aspects they want to excel in?
The answer, for the majority, is no. Instead they want everything to happen instantly and complain when it does not. That is a certain path to failure.
Let us take @splinterlands as an example. This is a game that is exploding, along with the wallets of many who are involved.
The first question is are you an expert at that game? If the answer is no, presuming you are interested in it, why not? Here is an opportunity to make tens of thousands of dollars (or more) if one puts in the effort.
Of course, this game might not be everyone's cup of tea and that is fine. Nevertheless, with an opportunity like this, why are those interested not fully dedicating themselves to it?
If the opportunities exist and it only requires effort, why do people not succeed?
The answer appears in that the majority are not willing to take ownership for what happens. We live in a world that excels at the blame game. Our entire model is to point the finger at other people.
Naturally, when we do find someone who is successful, the tendency is to tear them down. We call them lucky or a host of other things to try and validate ourselves.
Anyone who owns a business knows how foolish this is. As an owners, the proverbial "buck stops here". While that person can blame the employees, market conditions, or whatever else he or she wants, guess who is going to end up in bankruptcy court. It is his or her fortune on the line.
This provides a different mindset. Without it, most businesses are destined to fail. It is difficult to make ventures work. Even with total commitment, the failure rate is high. However, for those that succeed, that viewpoint is presently in almost every case.
Hive gives us the opportunity to take ownership of whatever we are involved in. In fact, blockchain is sensational because people literally have a stake in what is going on. If you have the currency for Hive or the other projects, no matter the amount, you have a stake in what is taking place.
In other words, the success will translate into a direct benefit for you.
Approaching Hive For Success
If you want to succeed on Hive, they approach it in the proper manner. Do not fall victim to what so many others did.
Understand there are opportunities here, be willing to put in the effort, and take ownership of what is taking place.
- Invest your time and money to being successful. If you have no money, then time and effort are the currencies you use.
- Find what interests you while immersing yourself in it. Spend the time learning what is going on as well as improving your skills.
- Show up each day. Play the game, write the post, engage with comments. Do whatever it is to enhance your visibility within the projects that capture your attention.
- Most people spend decades working a job and end up with little to show for it. Have a long-term outlook. Understand the nature of compounding and how it applies, not only financially, but to the overall success on here.
All of this is available to everyone. We are seeing a major paradigm shift taking place. Millions are arriving to help with the transition to Web 3.0. Many of us feel that Hive is at the forefront of this.
Many already are seeing their lives changed because of Hive. The reality is that if these people can do it, anyone can.
It just depends upon having the right approach to ensure success on Hive.
