Over-Coming Discouragement On Steemit
Discouragement is the act of losing interest in a thing or a pursuit. It is a process that depresses one's spirit, that extinguishes one's hope by creating total absence of enthusiasm.
If the afore-expression is anything near correctness, then it is a constant and a living factor on steemit. For past two weeks, my spirit was high. I was up and doing trying to post real content at least one everyday. Now, for past three days, I have not. I know I am not alone in this situation, and that is the reason i want to encourage myself and those in the same shoe with me.
There are so many reasons people get discouraged on this platform.
The reason for this article is to identify those reasons and proffer ways out of them. This article will ignite people's hope, by letting them know that they are not alone, that many other people experience what they do experience, and that they can overcome eventually.
I have desired to devote myself and time to ensuring that there is a peaceful co-existence between those who have and those who do not have. And that those who do not have can persevere, through long-suffering and patience mixed with hard work and get to the top. This I always believe, and it works.
Reasons one can get discouraged on steemit among others are:
Lack of a good device that can upload pictures and video: I have introduced some persons who I know are desirous to make ends meet, but lack the capacity in terms of right device.
Lack of writing skills: Many have bowed out because they felt they knew little. Writing skills is a talent as some people do it without stress or much effort. It is also a skill that can be developed with conscious effort. Writing ability is not the only thing that is needed to survive on this platform. I am sure of that.
Crazy earnings of the bourgeoisie: Some economic bigwigs on steemit can earn crazy amount in just a post. This contrasts with the earning of minnows which lies between $0.06 and 1.53 averagely. So some feel they have no need to waste their time since they cannot measure up.
These above-mentioned factors play major role in determining the population on steemit. The survival of steemit is dependent on the value of steem which in turn is a function of demand. More influx into steemit will definitely result to more demand of steem. Even though earnings may reduce at a point, suggesting difficulty level which we have in other cryptocurrencies, there will be sustainability in the form of slow and steady. Therefore, the need for publicity is pivotal to further the evolution of this platform.
OVER-COMING THE CHALLENGES ON STEEMIT PLATFORM: REALISTIC WAYS
Looking back to time and money spent on data on Facebook and other social platform without any return, one will appreciate steemit. In the light of this, $0.06 one makes here on daily basis will be celebrated.
Do not bother yourself over what others make. Just focus on yourself and be contented. Apply the Christian principle, "rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn".
Take pleasure in posting, reading other people's posts,upvoting them, resteeming if possible, and register your presence by commenting. Focus more on these than making dollars. The dollars will come when you least expect it.
Try and get a device that can do simple operations. You may not need a highly sophisticated device for a start. Like myself, I used an Android phone worth about $30 in doing what I am doing. Hoping to get a better device when I have made some money.
Write simple stories that may be based on personal experiences, other people's experiences, happenings around you, or fictions. It must not be so perfect. The beginning of everything is difficult, and practice, they say, makes perfect. Look up news or video clips everyone will like to read or watch, upload them with your own view, and make sure you reference the source.
With the above guide, you can experience a good time on steemit.
Stay put, never say die.
