Why You Need To Show Up...Everyday!

Why You Need To Show Up... Everyday!.png

This topic has been addressed...Quite a bit!

If you have been listening to the CryptoManiacs podcast over the past month, you would have heard @taskmaster4450 and myself SCREAM about how important it is to show up every day...And engage with people!

'Ya ya...Same broken record!'

I can almost see the eyes rolling as you read this...

But today might be a little different.

Today's post might be the kick in the butt you need to keep on...Keeping on here on the blockchain!

IMG_2761.png

I have that poster stuck up in my office.

It stares at me every day. And it's a reminder of what I can do, today, to help my future self and the ones around me.

Now most people, will say...

I'll write a post when I'm more comfortable. I'll make a comment when I feel inspired. I'll learn about this new technology later this week....

And what happens?

Most likely they put it off....

A habit has been formed in their day to day life where the most impactful task they should be doing...Is put off.

So let's talk briefly about how I 'kicked my own' butt when I first joined this blockchain and decided to dedicate the next 5 years at least to learning everything I could about it...

It was obvious from day one...The whales aren't coming to save you! That being said, a few whales on HIVE and the majority of them on @LEOfinance are awesome people that genuinely want to see everyone win!

But they still don't owe you a thing. When you get a generous vote, be thankful and grateful...But never stop creating and building on your journey here!

When I joined, I knew I had to put up, or shut up. Meaning, I had to work daily to deliver value and ADD to the blockchain, rather than just try to catch an upvote or two.

So I built!

@blainjones and I decided to bring our entire community (ClickTrackProfit) over to the blockchain and work with them DAILY to integrate the blockchain into their online businesses.

This has been our mission for years now, and guess what...It's not stopping anytime soon because we know the SECOND we let up...That nasty habit I mentioned earlier will form.

Somethings right now, that you have the power to control when it comes to building on the blockchain is commenting!

Here's what happens when you do (and build this into your daily habits)...

  • People get to know you
  • They begin to see you as someone adding value to the blockchain
  • You can earn some rewards for it (WIN!!!)
  • Your reputation and followers start to grow
  • You HELP the entire blockchain have more activity which in turn...Helps everyone out!

Here's what you don't need....Millions of Leo or Hive power to do it!

Just get started....

I'm so passionate about this, and I want to see everyone that can, jump in and be active. If you don't have enough Hive Power for the resource credits needed, let me know...I will GLADLY delegate Hive Power to you so you can comment and engage with these amazing people.

But remember that poster I shared above....

Your future is created by what you do TODAY...Not tomorrow!

Today, make it a habit to comment more...Engage more...And add value to everyone's journey here on the blockchain!

I am showing up everyday in Leo even though the shiny new toy is PoB lol. But yea lets keep the engagement going and as always I'll drop by every now and then to see how your chat is going.

Juggling all the tribes and front ends is going to be the next thing to master lol

Too many people chasing that money AFTER the rally has happened then looking at everyone else that "made it" and wondering why they can't be that person. Showing up every day even when the price dumps to $0.01 and still putting in the same if not more work puts you in a much much better position when that price rallies to $1! Take action, put in the time and work, provide value, make connections, friendships, business relations and continue to grow.
Short cut? Buy tokens when they are low in projects you believe in.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's what I keep telling people. Almost everyone you see here that's "made it" took a chance on a new platform and put some skin in the game.

I remember buying LEOM and LEOMM miners when the LEO token price was around $0.03 and the non-crypto people here where I live thought I was crazy. But it was obvious that crypto+finance would fill a much-needed niche and I'm so glad those early pioneers are now able to enjoy the success they so richly deserve.

So get out there and keep putting one foot in front of the other, so you'll answer the door when Fortune knocks! :)

People will say you are crazy...Until they see the results.

Early adopters are pioneers for a reason. And I salute each and every one of you guys for seeing things, years before the masses have.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well said.

Not a lot of people have that long-term vision so they just give up when they don't get those huge rewards after a couple days.

Those who actually take the time and do the work, as you said, will be in a great position some time from now, when things really take off.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

You gotta crush it every day even on the ones when you don't feel like it the most

So true!

I always think no is the best time to create and build...While everyone is looking at the new flashy things, just buckle up and put in the work here now...

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Totally agree. Always do what you can today because tomorrow will never get here. We only have today!

Absolutely!

And if we sit around waiting for the perfect time...It'll never get there.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's very true. Things get much easier when we just start.

It's a lot harder to get an object to start moving than it is to keep it moving so we just need that first bump to get things going and then once we start showing up every day we'll see real change.

It's true, engagement leads to engagement and friends make the bear season bearable.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

LOL Bear seasons are fun seasons. Accumulating makes me warm and cozy lol

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I love bear market @jongolson too, it helps you buy good stuff for cheap. 😂

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well said man.

Since I started engaging more with the community my life here on Hive changed a lot. I'm earning more tokens, which is great, but mainly, I'm getting to know more and more people and also getting other people to know me, which is just as important.

Just today some project that I didn't know about tagged me on a post because of my high level of engagement on LeoFinance this week.

And also, I'd like to add another thing to your list:

  • You learn a LOT

I joined Hive earlier this year and I didn't know the first thing about crypto, blockchain or anything like that but since I started to engage with people every day I've become much more knowledgeable, to the point that I'm now also able to help others, even though I'm far from being an expert like some people in this community.

And, finally, great show man! I only found out about the podcast last week but I'm already a fan.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Awesome, thanks for listening to the show :)

Yeah this community is amazing...And everyone generally wants to support each other grow. I love it!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

This post should give people a lot of encouragement. Over 30 comments already. Jon you kill it man!!

Thank you sir. Hope so...If it kicks one person in the butt and helps them, it's so worth it :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Now most people, will say...

I'll write a post when I'm more comfortable. I'll make a comment when I feel inspired. I'll learn about this new technology later this week....

This makes me think of something I've read some time ago about prioritizing and getting things done...

Schedule and do the most intimidating stuff first. Anything that makes you uncomfortable but you know it needs to get done...do it first and don't stop or move on to the "nicer" things until you've done it.

Thanks for the kick in the butt...It may not always be nice, but it surely is needed.

LOL Glad it helped...

Check out the book 'Eat That Frog' by Brian Tracy...Talks about the nastiest, ugliest task you see each day, should be the one you do first!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

'Eat That Frog'...urgh...the name says it all...lol! I'll check it out, thanks!

Showing up everyday has been rough for me the last 2 months, but I have made sure to do anything, everything or something daily to grow on the blockchain. I know I'm a long ways away, but you told me from day one; when I decided to go all in on the blockchain - create content, engage and show up; things will happen. @jongolson, you lead by example; so it's difficult not to get grimy and put in the blood, sweat and tears for what I want bad enough. #showup

I don't know what you've been going through but I hope things get better.

I believe you have the right mindset. If we keep on building little by little, day after day, it's all going to add up in the future.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

@tfranzini thank you 🙏🏼 very much appreciated - folks like you and The CTP Swarm make it easy to remain motivated despite a challenge here and there.

Its amazing because of what you have been through, yet show up more than people that have no excuses. Keep crushing it man!!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks @jongolson 🙏

I have been on this path for the past 2-3 months and it has helped my journey here immensely. I always encourage the people I onboard to comment more than the post. Everyone can or want to post but not everyone wants to engage and that is where the opportunity lies

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

100% agree!

That truly is the biggest opportunity....The comments :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks for this post @jongolson. Not many people understand this simple concept. If you keep on doing a thing every day, you will only get better and your chances of getting success increase.

Here's what you don't need....Millions of Leo or Hive power to do it!

You will get there if you show up every day. Even if you start from Zero. 😁

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Exactly! When students marvel at my math skills, I tell them I'm not special--just been doing math for half a century. If they do math for 50 years, they will also get better at math. Same with writing blog posts, knitting, golf, etc.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's a great advice @fiberfrau, your students must be very lucky to have you. The more you do, the more you learn.

Now I get it. That's why I am so bad at math :(

I always missed classes and no wonder I struggle with complex calculations now.

Btw thanks a lot for sharing your valuable experience, good to know you. Giving you a follow. 🚀

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It's never too late to learn it. As adults, we learn better because we are learning by choice. !BEER

Yes. I am still learning, bit by bit. Don't need in-depth knowledge anyway.

I try to increase the range of my knowledge and skill set. Basic Math is definitely on my list. Especially to understand the compounding of my investments. lol.

Engagement is very important and that is why when people engage more it is a good thing for the community and it also makes the blockchain grow as a whole....@jongolson


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Agreed!

It's the most important thing for thriving communities to have :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'm glad we're starting to see a lot more engagement now with the tribes helping out a lot. I guess its also people being able to find more content that they're able to relate to.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Yeah it's amazing to see.

Tribes have really helped this blockchain grow and I truly believe it's only just beginning.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's true. I think having more well-developed tribes will really do good things for the engagement.

We have an initiative to promote engagement on LeoFinance called Leo Market Talk (@leomarkettalk) and I know about other communities that are starting a similar thing. I hope they help to increase our overall engagement and activity levels across Hive.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, the tribes focusing on engagement is a good thing. Makes it all a lot more sustainable as we can't all be content creators.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

There are definite benefits to showing up everyday but some days that can be easy while on other days it can be challenging due to time constraints, stressful situations that need your undivided attention, etc. I know we are in a bit of slump when it comes to engagement but our time will come :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh for sure...Life happens. I think the most important thing is that...Once you've built and plugged into a community, 'time away' is a much easier thing to do. Community understands and supports.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Absolutely right! All we have is today, each day. As for waiting till you are "comfortable"...history is made by people who were not comfortable. People who experienced doubt, fear, hardship--but believed in something better. !BBH

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

It'll never be 'perfect' and if we wait for it...It'll never arrive. Just need to keep on, keeping on!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Working on getting back into the groove more and more. Just finished a Hive giveaway to celebrate my recovery. Plan to be around more as time goes on. Slow and steady return.

Good to see ya man! Hope you are doing better...Drop me a line if you need anything!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

For sure. Thanks

Ninety percent of life is just showing up
