INTRODUCE YOURSELF: I AM A NEW PIONEER

in introduceyourself •  18 days ago

"I am a New Pioneer."

This is a mantra that I have been telling myself more and more over the last 10 years. At first it began as a small tapping on the back on my mind but as the years went by it has become an

identity statement that has guided me like a light on a dark night.

I am inspired by the pioneers of our past. When I began to think about what it took to settle Canada, the land I now call home, I knew that there was another way to live TODAY. A way that was founded upon the same values that had sustained the generational roots of yesterday. There was a way to BE that was different. I began to call this, "Being a New Pioneer.".

The pioneers who went before us were adventurous souls who were determined to live free. They banded together and put their boots firmly on the ground. They found it in themselves to overcome the obstacles that nature and mankind threw in-front of them. These were resilient people; self-sufficient in ways that we have all but forgotten today.

Thinking about their toil I realized that I had no excuses. Today's innovations and automation made it easier than ever to succeed and a blueprint for overcoming our own constraints had already been laid. I resolved then and there to listen to the beckoning past. I would throw myself into the river and see where it's current would take me.

Starting this blog and taking you all along for the journey seemed like the first step that I should take. I hope that what I am doing here inspires you all to become New Pioneers for future generations to follow.


​Sincerely,
Wil Metcalfe

Hello! I wish you a good time on Steem.

·

Thank you @wilku! I certainly am having a good time! How about you? Looks like your taking pictures of Italy right now! That’s pretty sweet! 😁

·
·

Thanks mate... Yeah I am trying to post some my collection of photos... I really appreciate your comment...

·
·
·

Your very welcome! These types of photos are great because they give me a sense of what life in Italy is like so I’m looking forward to more of your content. :)

@newpioneer You told that you planned to open your fitness blog.. You can do that with a bang by associating with @actifit team. They have sponsored athlets and fitness trainer promoting actifit. Users are growing exponentially and already there are 4500 users and counting. I have already talked in their discord about you and they are happy to associate with you. This is amazing opportunity for you.

This is their recent update on the project.

I think you should join them at this early stage. What do you think??

·

Thanks for pointing me to this project @kpreddy. I took a quick look at it the other day with plans to return and take a better look later. It seems like a promising project and your right... Getting into things during the early stages is always fun and promising! Thanks for talking me up on discord by the way. That's great!

@newpioneer,you seem to be a fitness freak. Have you downloaded actifit app. It is fun. You will monetize your gym time.

·
·

You are indeed correct. I have been a personal trainer for 10 + years now. It's another hat I wear!

I'll have to check out that app. It sounds interesting! :D

·
·

I have seen your bio in your website. I'm stunned to see your 6 month results. Even I want to focus on my body and get it shaped. I think I can take some pretty good tips from you.😀😀

Thank you for taking the time to read my trainer bio @kpreddy. :)

Those results actually were made in 3 months time! :)

But yeah! I plan on opening another Steemit account for my fitness stuff at a later time... I'll have plenty of fitness and healthy living tips to share over there! I'll let you know when I launch it. Shouldn't be to long to wait... But my heart is really in launching the New Pioneer blog this summer! :)

Thank you @xakarisyed! It's great to be here! :D

Somebody has to become first new pioneer to be example to others :-)

What would the old pioneers tell about current world we live in?

·

That is a very good question @lanmis. One thing is sure... A pioneer is someone who sees the value in going places others aren't going and doing things others aren't doing. A pioneer is someone who seeks out the blue water leaving the red competitive water for everyone else to fight over. A pioneer is not afraid to innovate and create something new. I'm certain that the old pioneers would appreciate the new pioneer spirit because they are basically the same world views... just different timelines.

I'm curious, like you, as to what they would think of the times we live in however.

I'm wondering what questions I might ask those old pioneers?
Where would they think opportunity could be had?
What skills would they suggest I learn?
What would they think of as worth while activities?
Would they appreciate the ease of which our consumer society functions or would they encourage me to become more self-sufficient?
Would they understand computers and the technological aspects of our day?
Would they see these modern aspects of our society as potential frontiers or would they disappear into the backwoods and revert to a life centered around the old ways of life?

Here's the story of Dick Proenneke, an old pioneer from my grandfathers day. I came across his documentary recently and was inspired!

·
·

At one point of my life I was very interested in living outside the city, somewhere in the nature. It would be much easier for me to do that since my job doesn't require specific location, as long as I have internet access.

But...as much as I love eco friendly houses, I'm agaisnt building a house made of trees since it's a guaranteed way to destroy all the trees that managed to survive.
I'm more interested in houses made of clay etc.
That's more common and it has huge resources.

Although, I'm now exploring with Paulownia trees. If they are what they say it would be great thing for the whole world.
If it really grows in 8-10 years to full size, strong but light weight, straight growth...There would be a lot of potential in furniture world, houses, etc.

I'm now planning to partner up with someone with same interest, buy a small piece of land (which in my country is not expensive, less than $1k) plant like 100 Paulownia trees and see how it goes.
If it works it would also be a great income stream. Norway is paying about $450 per tree and more. Plus honey production in the meanwhile...

·
·

Back in the day I used to build log homes. We viewed it as a way to preserve the trees we used. The reason for this is that Canada has significant amounts of timber... So much so that one of our main problems here is forests following their natural cycle and burning to the ground. Every year we face this threat to our beautiful forests. Another threat is the wood beetle. It's wiping out vast areas of timber. These trees die standing and further increase the risk of wildfires. Whenever I drive through the Canadian Rockies (about once or twice a year) to Vancouver and Vancouver Island I am not only greeted by the amazing beauty... I, unfortunately, see the devastation of these fires. Entire mountain sides void of their forests. Smoldering charcoal and half burned stands of trees everywhere. It's really sad to see.

So yeah... our population isn't bent on destroying the forest like some places in the world are... We view cutting down selective trees as management of this precious natural resource. We do have some clear cutting here in Canada but these companies are required to replace the trees they cut down. Every summer people head to the mountains to plant trees. It's a pretty good living actually although you have got to be pretty tough to do a job like this.

I absolutely LOVE trees... I guess that's why the New Pioneer logo is a tree! I think trees are magnificent and when you look at how a tree grows there are so many things to learn about life and sustainability from them.

By the way... I think your idea of planting Paulownia trees is an interesting one! $1K is very cheap land! Is that the per. acre price? With land that's cheap many things are possible. And honey is always a good thing! Can never get enough of that! :D

·
·
·
·

Those regulations that Canada has are great. I really support that.
Unfortunately most of the countries don't have that (we had them until 30 years ago, but since than they are almost gone)

There's a lot of land standing unused where I live, because many people have left searching for a better life. That's why there is a lot of cheap land.
For example, in smaller towns, it's easy to buy a solid house for $5-10k with 5-10 ares of backyard (1 are is 100m2)
For the land, it's not that hard to find and buy ~10 ares for $1k (not talking about farming land, but about land for trees etc.)
Since Paulownia needs 2meters distance between each tree, it won't require a lot of land to plant 100 trees, or even a 1000
For 1000 trees, it's 20-25 ares (50x50 m2)

8 to 10 years is not a lot and with 1000 trees profit would be at least 250k just from furniture companies, but there are few other ways to earn since 2nd year:
-Honey production (bees love that trees)
-Pellet production from branches
-Leaf is sold to farmers to feed cows
-etc.

Profit will be returned in 2nd year and from 3rd it's 100% profit.

But I'm still planning this venture and trying to find someone to join me in this.

·

I think it's the sort of idea that your country may need @lanmis.

Have you heard about the tragedy of the commons? Basically this is an economic observation that indicates ownership is what prompts and incentivizes people to care for rather than exploit the land. They found that land, starting off beautiful and cared for, rapidly deteriorated when it was held as public land.

Over grazing and many other negative practices took place when someone didn't own a particular piece of land. Once this negative practice takes place it is infectious in it's effects to the surrounding property and it's value. It's really an ideology / mind set / attitude towards the land that creates this road block to true prosperity for the people.

So yeah! If you do this you could be a significant catalyst in your country for good! It's always amazing to me how if you take care of the land the land takes care of you.

I believe that all true wealth comes from 2 places. The earth you stand on and the ideas you plant and water in your mind.

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." -Chinese Proverb

Unfortunately, thanks to communism and what came after it, people in this region (not just my country, but whole region) became stupid.
Everyone looks for himself and don't care about anyone else...including nature.
If you ask some random people, they'll all tell you they love nature, trees, taking care of Earth and so on, but in reality it's something totally different.
For example, May 1st this year, some young people went to a national park to celebrate and cut down whole tree for a small barbecue. And no one stopped them, even though there was hundreds of other people around.

Some people here love communism and wish to return it, but it actually had terrible effect on us.

By the way (I found out this few weeks ago) that we had Lions walking around trough Europe earlier before, but we (the people) decided they are in our way, don't benefit us and decided to kill all of them?
Today we don't have a single European lion, what we can see in a zoo are African lions.

That's really to bad. I hope that your people will be able to learn from their mistakes just like I hope us Canadian's are able to learn from ours.

I can't believe those people cut down that tree in the national park for their camp fire... That sets such a precedent for other people (and the watching eyes of the youth). If everyone did that what beauty would be left? Would anyone even want to go camping in a national park?

Do you really think the lack of values and deeper insight is due to the ideology of communism or is it basic human carelessness?

Individually I have hope for humanity but I often feel that, collectively, society is such a let down. I think that this idea of raising people up at the expense of the environment is a mindset brought about directly by the problems we have within the money systems we use.

I think that they often incentivize the wrong behavior. It's to easier to maintain the current way that our society operates while making innovation even harder than it already is. When people don't feel they can win they often resort to taking short sighted short cuts of all kinds... If you have an entire society thinking this way then you REALLY have problems.

Wow.....damn look new pioneer!!You look like rock in Jumanji movie😃😃

·

Hahaha! Thank you @kpreddy! 😂😁

Hey @newpioneer, I'm loving this post and your attitude. I think I'm a pioneer too . It's about breaking out of the confines of conformity, not attaching to the illusion and taking a bold step forward based on your intuitive feelings. Today's pioneers have different obstacles to overcome but the underlying driving force is still the same. I look forward to reading more of your journey.

·

Thank you for the encouraging words @jojomiracles. I think that you are a New Pioneer as well! Let's both continue Steeming forward together!

Hey @newpioneer! You're one of the first 300,000 to be in on the future of social content....I think that you definitely deserve your name! :)

Well you know why we get depressed. For me its because we try to act like others and that don't happen because their capabilities and talents are different than yours. See what you are good at. This gives you a great sense of inspiration an will help you in moving forward. I have a story to tell you what happens if we get influenced by others

There is a old man who is having a goat. There are also 3 thieves who want to steal this goat. so they planned on how to steal the goat.

Then 1st thief went to the man and told him that why his dog is looking so ill. Then old man said that it is a goat. But the thief once again said that it is a dog and went. Likewise the other 2 thieves told some other stories like if the old man was carrying the dog.

The old man doubted for a while and finally got convinced and left the goat and went back. Then the 3 thieves happily took away the goat.

Moral: Don't get convinced or persuaded by other people. Believe in yourself. Focus on your strengths,be happy and make others happy. And don't forget to follow @newpioneer

That was a very sincer response to @steem.moon @kreddy. I really like how you told her to focus on being and believing in herself. This is such good advice for dealing with depression and other peoples criticism. Your story about the old man, the three thieves, and the goat is priceless! Thank you for helping me lift people up here on Steemit! If that's all we end up accomplish here on this platform then we truly have been successful. :)

One of my senior uplifted me by telling this story to me when I was trying to get a job in final year of engineering. I worked so hard day and night during my engineering and thought I deserve to get placed first. But my entire 4th year got ruined in attempting to get a job. But supreme personality of godhead know what I did and what I deserve. So he sent me a wonderful job offer one month after graduation. I got a job offer in world reputed organisation SUZUKI

Btw I made an article to help out fellow steemians for some questions that I have seen in some comments section. I would be glad if you answer some questions if you know any one of them.

·

It can feel depressing when you look around and don't see the life you want... But the key in changing that reality is all about training your mind to look for the things you are grateful for. When you do that your more receptive to the things in life that will move you towards your goals.

I always think of it like this @steem.moon:
If I'm driving down the road and I'm looking at the rocks, trees, and power poles then I'm probably going to end up veering of the road and hitting those obstacles.

If, on the other hand, I'm driving down the road and I'm looking where I want to go... Chances are pretty good that I'm going to get there... in one piece!

Are those obstacles still there? Yes they are. But when your more focused on where your going your more likely to creatively find solutions around those obstacles... and your likely going to expend way less energy overcoming them.

We all have obstacles and limitations... It's all part of being a finite human being... It's something we all have in common. That's why we all got to try our best to encourage and support those around us. It's all about positive energy.

Here's another thing to think about...
I believe in making my own luck. How about you?

Hi @newpioneer
In my life there is very activities have around me there there is lot of fun good things i live in good life my independent everyone wants to live my life😀...

........

But😔 every one dont knows about about my tentions, pains my in my lifes booklet where is hardness i work with sincerity i give them all respects and want everyone should respect me feel my depressions but there is nothing.. After sping a most beautifull day at night when comes i feel depression i thinking about all my tention who gives me from anywhare i feel bad i feel in depreesed and crying everytime

I think about that why people like do with me bad behaviour tell me about my mistake

In life there is for females so tough to servive people want to killed 👭 girls

I beliving to make my luck i do it far i get up with more power and still stand and fight these things.... But when people tease me tease me tease me 💯 times when i feel low decresing my power of strongest....

On that moment what should i do @newpioneer

When i saw you @newpioneer you i feel you so lucky you are male you stand for yourself you are independent you can do it everything you want to do but i am not... Because i am a girl and spend life in socialism... When i 😢 crying many time and feel powerless

Hi @steem.moon. I think I understand the gist of what you are saying. Personally I think that you need to learn more about healthy boundaries. If there are people in your life (even family) who are tearing you down in order to keep the power balance in your relationship... Then the best thing to do is slowly carefully detox from those relationships. Every minuet you devote to unhealthy people is a minuet you could be giving to someone who lifts you up.

Another thing... Depression could be coming from caring to much about these negative people... Finding a different way to think about them could be objective.

For example: If I get on the bus and someone I don't know on the bus says a lot of hateful things... I might be upset... But not really because I'm probably never going to see them again... So who cares. It's the caring that brings your spirit low. You don't have to care about people who don't really care for you... Right?

It's all about establishing healthy boundrys and thereby forcing the people you allow in your life to behave in healthy ways.

In my opinion success has nothing to do with being female or male. Culturally there could be difficulties... But if women band together and support each other then I'm sure the culture would slowly change.

Now... As for your comment, "servive people want to killed 👭 girls".

Could you explain this to me? I'm guessing that your making use of google translate or something like that and it may not have translated your text in the correct manner.

Please don't ever feel down for being a girl. They are many motivating women personalities in history . Take time and read about them. You feel better and motivated.one more suggestion is that please get surrounded by good people who encourage you and fill positivity in life. From whatever you said I can see that you have gone through so many hardships in your and that might have toughened your character.

See all I can say is people who are grown up easily cannot survive in this modern world. So chill chill😀😀

·

Hi @veseloff. Although I do appreciate the follow and potential support I don’t look at these things as transactional. I follow people and support their content for my own reasons and am really looking for genuine connection. I hope that you understand where I’m coming from.

·
·

And that's exactly what most people here doesn't understand. Randomly following someone in order to gain large number of followers leads to nowhere. Just a huge noise without any real interest

·
·

Exactly. I'm glad you and I see eye to eye @lanmis.

Hi Wil Welcome to Steemit and you got the commenting part early on! We look forward to seeing you create your posts about the things that you care about.

your post and you are superb i hope you get more and more please help me bro

Hi @sunil6342458. Thank you for the compliment on my post as well as the resteem! That's very nice of you.

Quick question... What is it you need help with, if you don't mind me asking...

·
·

sir give me upvote, please i hope you give

·
·

Hi @sunil6342458. I really want to. You seem like a nice person... however, my friend, I feel that you are misguided at the moment as to how the Steemit community works.

One of the things I personally value the most in human beings is when they act out of sincerity, authenticity, and a genuine spirit. This, I believe, is where true influence and wealth come from.

A man or woman can have their hands full of the fruit... But it they do not understand how to nourish and care for the tree of life that produced the fruit in the first place then it is only a matter of time before their hands are empty and the tree has died.

If you support others here on Steemit (and in the world around you for that matter) out of a spirit of authentic, genuine, and sincere generosity with no intention of receiving anything... Then it is only natural for others to reciprocate. You won't have to sell your soul and ask. In fact it is the asking that cancels out the natural generosity that would come your way.

If you plant a seed will it not spring forth to feed you in due time? Have faith! It's a natural law of the universe!

Also... Please keep in mind... Steemit is a place that rewards value. By adding value to others you will in turn receive value. Simple as that.

I don't mean to lecture you... But I do mean to set the record clear going forward.

·
·
·
·

@newpioneer steemit need more people like you. You spoke true intentions.

·
·
·
·
·

I'm trying my best to maintain those intentions @kpreddy. The way I see it... Influence is a subtle art.

Having a business means that you are in the business of influencing people to put their hand in their pockets and give you their money. They have to see the value and the better you are able to communicate that value the more likely they will be happy to hand you their hard earned money.

In my opinion money doesn't spring from no where here on Steemit (or the physical world for that matter). It comes from the ability to influence people as to the value you offer.

That's why I think Steemit is such a great idea! It allows you to leverage your creativity, genuinely connect with others around the world, and add valuable information to people during the information age... a time where money, information, and influence are synonymous.

yeah! that is really true. our speech and actions should be persuasive in a good way.
