Don't loose hope, continue to build and grow
It is certainly not an easy period with this pandemic that dictates our lives and has a very strong influence also on our financial situation.
Nevertheless, I believe that we are lucky to have Hive and this community which allows us to earn an income even when we are under lockdown.
Don't compare yourself with others
I totally agree with her. A lot of users on hive are small fishes and for them it might be discouraging to look a the bigger fishes that reach high payouts on their posts, that have tons of hive power, that have huge dcities, that have amazing splinterland decks.
One step at a time and growing at your pace
However we should be aware that we are all on a different step in our progress on this platform. Some people have been at it for several years and others just joined. Therefore we shouldn't compare ourselves with them. We should look at ourselves and realize the progress that we have made. It might be a good idea to write a post about your own goals. How much Hive to you want to have by the end of 2021? It's in fact not so important to reach these goals but you will always be able to look back and see how much Hive Power you had when you wrote the post. This will make you realize how much you have progressed in the meantime.
Let's therefore not loose hope. It's a slow progress and we need time to grow. Don't forget that the more active you are on this platform, the faster you will grow and the more you will know.
