What Are You Waiting For?

We often hear how people would refer to the success of someone else and say something like... "He/she had just been at the right place at the right time".
In most cases, this is not true. To imply that someone is successful just because he was at the right place at the right time means that success has a lot to do with luck. And nothing could be further from the truth.
When making that statement, it is often taken for granted that the person was there by coincidence (at the right place at the right time)...
That is the first misconception. It might have been that a particular person was at the right place at the right time. But what we often don't realize is that he was there on purpose...and not by coincidence. He was prepared.
But being at the right place at the right time is actually irrelevant in most cases. Success comes from hard work!
You can be at the right place at the right time several times...if you don't put in the effort and take action, nothing will happen.
But, that doesn't mean you cannot be presented with a great opportunity by being at the right place at the right time.
The question is: If you are to be presented with a great opportunity to become successful, what are you going to do with it?
If you are offered a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat! Just get on. ~ Sheryl Sandberg
If I offer you a proven, practical and doable, step-by-step action plan that guarantees that if you follow this plan to the letter, you will make $1 000 000.00, would you be interested? Or would you ask me if you could maybe cut a few corners and leave out some of the steps? If I answer "no" to this, and insist that you do every step, will you do it or would you pull up your nose and walk away?
Well, if you are active on this blockchain and if you are reading this post, you are at the right place at the right time. You have been offered a seat on a rocket ship.
The question is: What are you going to do with it?
It doesn't guarantee you $1 000 000.00 though. But it is an open-ended opportunity for you to do with as you please.
Are you going to walk away because you don't like the idea of earning only a few pennies in the beginning? Or maybe it's a bit of a challenge for you to show up every day and just do "something". Something...like engaging with other community members, curating content on the blockchain...or even creating some content of your own...
If these are too much for you and you do nothing, that is exactly what you will get...nothing.
But if you are willing to do what it takes, you will be rewarded. The more you do, the more you earn.
"Yes, but the blockchain is based on cryptocurrencies and crypto is volatile. What if I lose money?"
Yes, crypto is volatile indeed. You might earn some nice amounts in crypto, and then it might lose some value in FIAT currency.
But, consider the following:
- You can start with zero out-of-pocket expense.
- If you earn crypto to the equivalent of $100.00, and your crypto loses value and goes down to $50.00, it is still $50.00 you didn't have. You haven't lost anything, you are still in profit, making money.
- Don't see this as a short-term thing. It most definitely is not a way to get rich quickly. Everybody that I know of who is working on this platform is in it for the long haul.

Yes, as you earn money (in crypto), it might lose value, but over time it will gain value.
And the counterpart to the volatility of crypto is, do more to earn more. This will help to "absorb" some of the volatility if you want to measure it in FIAT value.
So, are you going to sit back and watch other (active) people becoming successful? Or are you going to take action and do the best you can?
It's not all about being at the right place at the right time. Whether you are at the right place or not, what are you willing to do?
Waiting for the right time? There is no time like right now. Whatever it is you would like to do, take action and start doing something now.
