I was homeless twice. Thanks to Crypto, Steem and Hive
Extreme people get extreme results. Maybe I'm not a normal person.
I'm a little hesitant to write this post but I'm very happy to begin sharing some of the worst experiences now when Hive is more than $2. I feel happy that I can finally be able to share the lessons that I learned from my own life experience.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
Few months before I went all-in with crypto. In early 2017, I decided to move to silicon valley so that I can learn from the best entrepreneurs and build a meaningful business/company. Since quitting my job in 2014, I always wanted to build something Big and become a millionaire. I thought being in a committed relationship was holding me back from becoming the person I wanted to be. So I and my partner entered into an open relationship (This allowed me to do anything I want without seeking approval from anyone) and I arrived in San Francisco a few days later. After spending a few days there I decided I'm going to build a business around travel. So I went to Honolulu Hawaii. Because I had lots of money in the bank and some Bitcoins plus ETH, I never had a money problem back then. The first month, I was living in AirBnb paying $50 plus per night. Also, I was renting a Jeep and bought a surfboard. During my time in Honolulu, I took many homeless people to dinner and spend time with them. Sometimes I bought them clothes and try to help them to get a job. I did these things from bottom of my heart without expecting anything in return. I would say that I had an abundant mindset back then.
During the time that I lived in Honolulu, I made so many friends and some of them were homeless people. I had this idea in my head that I wanted to experiment living homeless and soon I found myself sleeping on the beach, sometimes sleeping back of my Jeep.
However, this little experiment only lasted a few days and I was able to find an awesome hostel by the beach for $20 per night in Honolulu.
While I was staying in this hostel, I made the decision to go all-in with Crypto and it's probably the best decision that I made in my entire life so far. Since going all-in with crypto I become homeless Twice. First during my break from Steem then recently the little break from Hive.
It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything
All I wanted to say is that I learned to be humble because of those experiences. In the past, I was ashamed to tell other people about what I've been through. Now I'm slowly and slowly I'm learning to be fearless.
Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real
I want to be real. So I will share both stories of how I bounce back from being homeless situation in between my all-in with crypto journies very soon.
I remember asking someone who appeared to be homeless in Hawaii, and he responded to me
I'm houseless, Hawaii is my Home. So don't even dare call me homeless in my homeland.
Maybe I could say, I'm houseless and crypto is my second home.
