The Dream, The Journey, The Adventure

dream.png

I threw this post out on Twitter today...

Wasn't really planned, but it really got me thinking big picture about my journey on Hive.

There's my dream, on social media for all to see :)

It's pretty straight forward, to earn a living from my efforts here on Hive.

I've been building businesses online for over 20 years and nothing has captured my passion and dedication more than this blockchain and it's community. And that's really a 'golden nugget' that I wanted to dive into with this post.

You see....The dream isn't a reality yet.

Far from it. I make a few Hive here and there but to pay the bills and earn a living from my efforts here, isn't in the cards right now. Sure if the price of Hive goes to 10 bucks, we can entertain it lol But right now, I'm in 'stacking' mode. Accumulation is the name of the game, as much as I can.

Because here's the 'nugget'...

You truly have to LOVE what you do!

When I show up, create a post, curate some content or use one of the apps on the blockchain, the side benefit to me is...Being rewarded. The big benefit which drives me is the entrepreneurial spirit. We are building something remarkable on Hive, and I want to be a part of it.

I'm hardly the most rewarded author on the blockchain, but I will put in the work each and every day because I want my name written down as a pioneer in this web 3 stuff! I want to be a part of something bigger than I can imagine, and the best part is that I can build my business at the same time.

Being an entrepreneur on Hive is quite the opportunity. With all the development taking place, and with the upcoming hard fork, it's easier than ever to tap into this on a social media level and create something remarkable for your community.

But it's a journey.....

And this is what I have taught our members in ClickTrackProfit.com for over a decade now...The journey is filled with up's and downs. There will be plenty of days that you feel like quitting because the results are never promised. However you keep on showing up, for the big rewards that come down the road.

This is why you must love what you do!

If I got 0 Hive from this post....I will still show up tomorrow!

If I get 100 Hive from this post....I will still show up tomorrow!

The results day to day are never guaranteed, but you see that's what it's such an adventure. We never know what we will get from showing up every day, but when you scroll out and look at the big picture...Now we start seeing why it's so important to stay the course and never get too high or too low with this stuff.

So I guess the message here is for everyone that wants to make this a career, keep the axe to the grindstone. We may not be able to live off this stuff today or next week, however when we enjoy the journey and embrace this crazy adventure on the blockchain...Our dreams may one day become a reality!

Absolutely agree Jon! There are also many intangibles for doing so without the HIVE results. I feel that writing and engaging has helped me in my career as well. Hope to see you at Splinterfest!

Urgh wish I could make it, but America still doesn't allow us un-vaxxed across the border. I waited to see if they would lift the land restrictions on the borders but not yet.

Yes! Loving what we do is absolutely essential from my perspective, as only with that will we have the tenacity and dedication to keep going, regardless of how things go any particular day. Burning desire manifest over time. Great post, Jon! I love it!

friendships also help a lot. I have seen a lot of people burn out becuase they could not make a connection.

Also, lets get hive to $10. LOL

The message is clear, we might not be able to life off it today, but showing up and finding more creative ways to do better than we've previously done is what guarantees the future we're building towards

I agree. Whether or not it's slow or fast, growth is growth and it will add up over time here on Hive. Just keep grinding and being active and watch the growth.

It takes life to understand the fact that "nothing is owed to us". And we have to keep showing up if we are meant for progress. Not a lot of people do that and then journey becomes suffering. It's better to not take thing for granted and go on showing up and doing things in the process.

My stake isn't very high either, but I am always amazed to look at my estimated account value and see what I have built over the past four years. As much as I have come to enjoy writing and interacting with other people on the chain, I think my ultimate goal would be to earn enough from curation that I don't need to post if I don't want to. I honestly don't know if that day will ever come. I think even if Hive hit $10 I still would need to keep my full time job. At least until I retire!

I want to make it to where I can use Hive easily and daily in my local community.
My vision requires local limited adoption and I think it does for most people.
At the moment I am also in the stacking mode but my vision is to earn 50 Hive a day in a variety of tokens,
I can imagine going to my local pub that makes great pizza and paying in !PIZZA I earned farming BUDS and getting !PGM through curation.
Give energy in currency of interactions with !ALIVE to pump others and my own goals.
Hives growth seems like a logical and a sure thing.
If there is such a thing.
Man plans and God laughs.

Another reason, Hive teaches you how to write, however you do it. The main thing is the desire and the love for it. This is something that can come in handy beyond Web3 as well. Let's say you're a great writer! With fire, I'd say!

Very true. And the community supports you as you grow as a writer too! Very unique in that aspect.

I can't agree with you more. There are times I have to take a step back from Hive, because of life outside the virtual world, but I keep coming back because of the community and knowing that I'm leaving something behind. However small or big it may be.

That's the best thing about Hive. It's still here, and continues to grow. Even if we take some time away, it's always welcoming when we get back!

If people want their dream they have to take action and live it.😉
Keep claiming it my friend so many people are talking like they want their dream but then are holding on and setting up safety nets, planning how they are going to plan that it all becomes too late.
The dream is nothing without the journey and the journey can't take place without the adventures. @jongolson
Have a successful one my friend YOU GOT THIS 🤑
