Why Are You Here?

Why are you here?

What exactly do you want from this blockchain? Do you want to learn about finances or investments perhaps? Do you want to build a business? Do you want to practice a hobby such as photography and be part of a community where you can display your photos while learning more about the art of photography? Or is it art in itself that makes you tick and you are looking for a place to display some digital art?

If you want to get any benefit from this platform...if you want this platform to serve a purpose for you in any way, you need to know exactly what it is that you want from it.

If you've heard that there's some money to be made here and that is the only reason for you being here, I think you might have a hard time seeing consistent results. That's just my opinion...but normally, people who do something for the money only, want to see results...serious results, and they want to see it quickly...money-wise.

But if you want to see consistent results from this platform, you need to be willing to also add value to this platform.

I see this in a positive light though. In the process of adding value to this platform, you are also growing as an individual. You grow, you learn and you gain experience.

We all want to see a return for any work we do. Whether it is work or pleasure...we want to benefit from it. We want to see results or enjoy benefits in some form.

But before we can see any results in whatever we do, we have to put in some effort first.

We can even use the forces of nature to serve us if we are willing to put in some effort first.

You can use the forces of the wind to serve you if you want to go sailing. But first, you need to learn about the wind, wind direction, and how to set your sails to gain any momentum and in the direction of your choice. You need to know where you want to go and how to get there.

Secondly, you need to actually set the sails on your boat to benefit from the wind.

Thirdly, you need to know that sometimes there will be no wind at all...

There are ideal conditions for sailing, and there are times when it is better to stay on dry land.

If the wind will not serve, take to the oars. ~ Latin Proverb

It is the same with being active on this platform. If you know where you are heading...and you know what it is that you want to achieve, this platform can serve you well.

You'll be able to learn, apply what you learn, and even earn while you learn, right here on the platform.

Enjoy your journey to success!
