The Hive Attitude: F*ck It - We Do It Ourselves

We are trailblazers.

This is what life is like on Hive. We are having to forge ahead in spite of difficult circumstances. It is a state that everyone must understand.

Grasping the situation as it stands is essential. We are not moving into the lap of luxury. Instead, we are dealing with rugged terrain, harsh weather, and a lack of resources. Successful comes from ingenuity, perseverance, and struggle.

In short, nothing is going to come easy.

This is the life of Hive. We are rebellious, independent, and proud. It is not a life for the weak.

In this article, we discuss the mindset that is required along with how we are creating something completely new.

A New Settlement

The analogy that seems to parallel what we are doing is the settling of new territory in the United States a few centuries back. It was difficult and dangerous. Yet, people did it in an effort to create a new life.

This is what we are doing with Hive. It is, after all, called digital real estate.

We are building a new settlement. This is not connected to anything else out there. We are off on our own. For this reason, people need to stop looking for help from the outside. It is all up to use.

This is there the Hive attitude comes in. So many want others to do for us. Fck it. We do it ourselves.*

Here is where the correlation to the early settlements come in. They didn't head to Home Depot to buy what was needed. Everything had to be made from scratch. Whatever was not on the wagons was created.

It is the same here. Sure, we want Coinbase to carry our coins. It is not likely to happen, at least not until we become a powerful metropolis. For that reason, if we want the ability to swap HBD to BTC or LTC, building needs to be done.

This is what being trailblazers means.

Focus Within And Expand Outward

There is nobody going to connect to us. We are in the middle of a valley, cut off from the rest of the world. Therefore, if we are going to be connected to everyone else, it is up to us to expand outward.

Of course, using this analogy, if we simply start to construct roads, without developing our settlement, it is akin to a bridge to nowhere. Why would anyone want to travel there other than initial curiosity?

There is a Native American reservation in the middle of the state. It was like most, ignored and away from everything. The roads leading to it were limited and, quite frankly, not in good shape.

That all changed. Almost overnight, the state was putting money into the roads, widening them to handle more traffic. What happened?

The reservation built a casino. Suddenly, there was reason to further connect and provide access in.

It is the same with Hive. At the moment, people complain about not being able to connect out, say with swapping coins. Notice how people aren't looking to enter from the outside. There is no casino here yet.

If we are waiting for them wanting to connect in, we are going to be sitting around for a long time. It is up to us to take matters into our own hands.

With Rebellion Comes Responsibility

We can relish in the attitude. After all, it has a bit of renegade to it.

That said, what is really means is responsibility. Looking to the outside for someone else to do it is a foolhardy exercise. We all want others to build the cool things for us. This is not how it works.

There is also the tendency to let someone else do it. This doesn't cut it either. For our town to be settled, it will take all hands. We are small in number, hence we do not have the luxury of sitting back and let others pick up the slack.

We often discussed the idea of building a business on Hive. Other time, we covered the idea of the ownership mindset. This is a cooperative where we each have a piece of "land". What are you doing with yours?

Blockchain is the native terrain. Our keyboards can build whatever we desire in the decentralized database. This doesn't even require technical skills to create.

Hive provides anyone with a feeless back end to tap into. The server system is in place, ready for anyone to utilize. It only requires some resource credits. If, the project grows, there are always others to seek out who can build a front end.

The idea of "we do it ourselves" conveys the idea that we actually do something.

Our Structures Are Being Built

Infrastructure is a term that shows up in many of these articles. There is a reason for that.

Going back to our settlement analogy, this is akin to the structures of our town being built. The construction is occurring that will allow for the needed activities to occur. However, it is hard to have a hotel without a physical building.

We want the ability to swap $HIVE for Bitcoin. That structure is under development. Layer 2 is going to provide a lot of what the town needed. However, the base layer is what will allow for scalability from an outpost settlement to a thriving urban center.

If we want a visual, here is a great way to picture what is happening.

This is Denver, Colorado.

The first image is a lot like Hive today.

Next we have life with more development and everyone building their business.

Finally, we arrive at a thriving, modern day metropolis.

Just consider all the time, effort, and innovation that it took to move from the first image to the last.

This is exactly what Hive is. Anyone who is looking for the outside to take care of business for us is not likely cut out for what is taking place. We are trailblazers and it is important to understand all which it entails.

We are not a neatly polished city with all our ducks in a row. That is still down the road.

Now is the time to build because nobody else is going to do it for us.

Fck it. We do it ourselves.*

What is most important to me is that we have the control of this city, from town to metropolis.

We are builder's 😊, waiting, waiting, waiting, will only waste time, one need to take action, by doing the least he/she can for hive to reach it desire peak, which will make it shines so bright light into the outside world.

It's inspiring, piece like this are the type that brings out the best in a person.

TBH, this is motivational if you managed to read through the post. It is true when it comes to Hive. There is no rescuer coming us for rescue. We have to do it ourselves and bring the transaction one by one.

Dear @taskmaster4450 , I very much agree with you, Hive is interesting, fruitful, but also risky, because on several occasions we believe that we will have positive evaluations, which will remedy the effort we make, but the result is different, that is, lower profits, which are not compatible with effort and dedication, other times we are lucky they see us, read, give their opinion and the whales value us well, that is why I say the rule is to continue without faltering, as far as I am concerned with my reputation 73.69 I consider that I am doing well and in several Sometimes I manage to acquire, as a person of the third age with 70 years; for my medicines, exams among various benefits, in that sense your publication is very good because it encourages those who so far have not done well in hive. Your post is very motivating, I will keep going with my yoga and preparing meals. successes

Hive is about compounding. It takes time to build and grow. This is not a get rich quick scheme.

As for reputation, the score doesnt mean a great deal. Many were rigged during the bid bot era.

Just keep progressing along and embrace the positive aspects of Hive. Things are disjointed now but they are starting to come together.

A personal experience following the Steem fork that caused me to migrate to Hive made me realize the ownership and responsibility mindset on Hive immediately.

There's just that attitude of getting things done and waiting for no one to do it for us and the same mindset have continued impressively. I don't see it stopping as we continue to build.

Swapping Hive for BTC on Hive will be another awesome development.

Swapping Hive for BTC on Hive will be another awesome development.

There are people who are working upon it. We will see a lot of different things rolling out this year. It is hard to be patient.

While we are doing that, just occupy yourself by building.

Great analogies and truly I am too excited about the developments done on Hive and which are coming to fruition in the next period. If the market gets bullish along with all new releases, we might see a burning crypto summer for Hive.

An inspiring article and the analogy fits well with Hive. This has never been done before and it's completely new. So we must adopt an ownership mindset, think creatively and learn how to get things done by ourselves.

not everyone can see what is coming and they need to open their eyes. Prime example is Las Vegas as it was in the middle of nowhere and was a desert. Give hive another 5 years and we most likely wont recognise it from today as changes are happening all the time.

That is a great analogy. You are right. Was a nothing until the were a major recreation and entertainment center.

Then everyone wish they bought when land was cheap.

I wouldnt go that far. Apps are stil going to have to market and entice users by presenting a strong user experience.

Nevertheless, we have the ability to create something remarkable.

It reminds me of why people started just doing whatever they needed. For example, when people get annoyed enough with the issues around their home, they will decide to do it independently. Basically, if you annoy people enough and they have the means, they will do so.

It's going to take a while but like the saying goes, nothing good comes easy. What we have here revolutionary and can change the world but we need to pull ourselves together to accomplish it.

We are soon to take over the search algorithm for the word Hive on Google soon it will be too hard to ignore us. Imagine if we become the most googled network 9n the planet...it will be amazing.

This is a cooperative where we each have a piece of "land". What are you doing with yours?

I'm trying to support the initiatives that I believe in. And when I get an idea that I don't know how to make a reality, I pass it on to someone who has the knowledge.

Also I do my best to make each of my stories entertaining, by striving to hone my writing skills.

In short, nothing is going to come easy.

Most things that are worth having are hard to come by :) ...

We are not only trailblazers but pacesetters as well. No one got us except ourselves, and what we need to expand is within us . The earlier we realize all hands must be on deck to make the development of Hive an encompassing one , the better and the best.

That is the attitude I have, Fu@( it i'll just do it myself. The reason why i have this sttitude was because when I first started out in online businesses, BS businesses now that I look at it. My first online work was TE, total BS I say. What I was noticing that people didn't like my confindence levels, and many especially in hungry for hits make me feel like my confidence and masculinity was tocix, so they tried bullying me, and finally banned me for defending myself, confidence, and masculinity. If I were a simp they'd love me there. I wqas noticing many now aftre that ban were not so friendly to me anymore, not even those who I thought were my friend(s). Thats when I said FUC THEM ALL, with my masculinity, confidence, i'll jst keep moving my way. And all I can say is I'm no millionaire yet, but i ahppy working for myself, and yes I can work with others but I think it'll just be a waste for me. So I stick to myself because I am not reallu liked on this online world. As long as my family likes me I am all good. They are the only people I need as the rst have given me the cold shoulder.

I would love to helpm you guys build, I have built up the Toronto Ontario Canada downtown area that it has changed the horizon if you look back at city from lake ontario. 25 years of building the concrete jungles of Toronto.
