Feeling Unappreciated for Your Post on Steemit & DTube? Try this out for size!

in life •  9 months ago



I remember one college student in one of my personal development classes come up to me and say, "Sir...I feel like I just need some encouragement...I've been so discouraged lately." My response was, "How about you try to encourage someone?" And he said "No sir...I AM feeling discouraged." And I said, "Encouraged people encourage others. The exact same way that angry people anger others. Try it for a day or two and let me know what happens. The next class, he came up to me full of endless energy, "Sir! I tried it! It worked! I feel so alive again!"

I know that this platform can be unforgiving at times. I know it may seem like nobody cares about you or notices you or appreciates you. Do they even know you exist? They do. But forget what they know for a second. Why don't you go out of your way to notice them? Try that on for size :) let me know the results in the comments below!

Hey guys, I hope you’re doing well! Welcome to DLife Lesson here on steemit & @dtube! My goal is to add some thought-provoking value to your life. I hope this video inspires you to become a better version of yourself.

Here are the links I used in this video:

Hey guys and gals, I’ve been a student of life and love to learn new things. I've studied film, acting (film and theatre), Natural Medicines, Psychology, Business and Photography. I’ve read over 2,000 different books and consume at least 50 new books a year. I also owned and operated a Consultancy Firm for about 3 years and was a professor for Personal Development for one of the leading schools in the field called John Robert Powers. Aside from working with over 3 fortune 500 companies, I’ve also owned and operated over 4 businesses. Along with that, I've travelled all over Europe, South America and Asia doing non-profit work for Orphanages and shelters. I also speak from time to time to Youth Groups and Churches. I hope that some of these personal life lessons add value to your life.

I believe that success is not our final destination. I don’t believe in failure, I believe in learning from mistakes. I believe that it’s okay to be obsessed. It’s evidence of passion in your life.

great post follow me and and my posts thanks

Thanks

Curation, is what I stared with it helps but sometimes even that is overwhelming.

Today I am completely discouraged!

I realize i don’t want the attention but I want to participate. I want to create and to be reviewed but being a perfectionist I will never be happy with what I have created no matter what I am told.

Does that mean I am giving up? NO, my negativity is my drive in a way but it can be a challenge not being overcome by it. If anyone watches my content I want them to get a “real” sense from what I produce and well positivity isn’t my best quality.

How do I support others with negativity? Criticism, I see flaws, I see areas of improvement, I can often add a dark light to any situation. Trick is wording things in a constructive manner.

So today I am down on myself, even though I spent yesterday meeting a few new people, gained a follower who produces great content herself, even encouraged her to start daily posting on dtube, set up a discord server, transferred my mining rewards into Steem, finished my first week on dtube daily posting, created my first montage, purchased the software to make everything streamlined, I am still frustrated with myself!

Is it the lack of attention? Yes and no, sometimes we need to take a step back and realize that the emotions arn’t particularily relavant to the intrinsic investment, yes I would like to have a video in the hot or trending list it would be cool just to say that I did it yet I struggle with being in the spotlight. I put myself here maybe because I wanted to step outside my comfort zone, man am I uncomfortable!

Energy is energy no matter the form use it constructively, take a step back, don’t make emotional decisions!

I started here as a curator, no intention of trying to contribute, but then I did it, now the ball is rolling I have only the choice to jump off or keep running and stay on top, today I stumble but have not fallen!

@dlife you encouraged me to try, supported my efforts, and in return you have gained my full support! It all started with answering my comment, that was it, you answered me, look at the direction you have encouraged me to take!? You are boss at this encouraging thing and I try follow your example. I know you’ll say I have good things to say but you may not know that’s only after careful deliberation of what not to say.

Taking your lumps and #steemon, nothing in life that’s worth fighting for comes without the fight! Today I fight my inner demon, negativity!

Perfect timing for this, perfect opportunity for me to collect my thoughts on the subject as I write about them, thank you.

To the top where you belong, son! I've been super busy this weekend, so haven't been on discord. Still have a lot of work today and then you know I have that TV pilot tomorrow, but I just want to tell you that I BELIEVE IN YOU. Many of us here do. Keep on going bro. You're my hero for stepping out of your comfort zone! Just keep at it. The capital will build. The following will build. We're in this together, champ.

·

Thanks boss! I think the discord is fairly well setup now, I have given you full permission so customize as you see fit.

I will always keep moving, just at times a new direction is necessary!

·

As long as you keep making the uncomfortable your domain, you'll not fail in the long run. To succeed is to fail over and over.

I would suggest not trying to make something popular - instead, make what you deeply care about. People will come to you for being you - it's the hardest thing to do as a human today, and greatly respected.

·
·

took some of that for my post, I tried something new and entered for a contest.

I don't want to be popular but it is something id like to say "I did it", and so can you type thing. If I can make it into trending or hot anyone can, and I wish to encourage others.

·
·
·

You're going to get there bro!

I'm going to check it out :)

·
·

That's true.

·

We can all do it; I'm just a minnow now but like all fish, in order to grow, perseverance is the key! Never give up, follow your unique path! How exactly does curation work anyway?

·
·

well its very complicated but simply put you vote early for content that gets big upvotes and you take a share for curating good content, 20-30 min mark for max rewards but its the votes that come after you that matter I believe.

#onelovedtube

Hehehe, ok!

·

Sure!

hi Sir.. This is very helpful for me as I am very new to steemit. It prepares me for the tough road ahead.. essentially HODL on! believe in ourselves and ask ourselves why we are here in the first place! xD I hope that this community is a warm and friendly one! =)

·

Wow that's perfect :) you're going to do just fine my friend!

#onelovedtube

·
·

Hello dlife! haha yes we all need a helping hand sometimes, I learn that if we can make this a "pay-if-forward" system, people will help you in times of need, when you help them. Its ideal, but people like this are hard to come by. I just watched black panther today, and i love the quote : " in times of crisis, the wise build bridges, while the fools build walls" kinda explains my point! Also! have a good day and stay safe my friend!

This is awesome thank you :) ... always reach to be the best

·

You're very welcome! Yes! Rise to the top, my brotha! Share the glory!

#onelovedtube

I hope, there will be more videos on DTube.

·

There will be! There will be A LOT more :)
You should make some!

Internet, communities and positive energy are rarely seen at the same time, but all this platform is new and I believe in it!

·

Yes it's extremely rare. This is the place to be! It'll be up to us to keep it positive!

#onelovedtube

wow! 2000 different books seems a lot. I don't think that I can read even half of it.

·

Yes you can! For me it's been close to 15 years doing that. So that's an average of 133.33 books per year. That's a little less than 3 books a week. Anything is possible! Or you can try audiobooks also! You'll get through it much faster!

:)

#onelovedtube

·

Claro que puedes con eso y más... sin arrogancia mi promedio es sobre 150 al año y me hace muy feliz

Sir. Your video is the first video I watched after registration on Steem. Really positive and fantastic! Keep good working :)

·

Wow that is sooooo cool! I'm so glad :) I hope we see more of each other on here! If you need any info on anything, please let me know :) happy to help!

#onelovedtube

What a video ma man! fantastic message I completely agree :)

·
·
·
·

·
·
·
·
·

I think in one of your comments but here it is again, Champ.

https://discord.gg/XCnDgFZ

definitely an interesting idea. I am all for keeping the Ego in check for most of the things you do in life. So thanks for reminding me again about that. Peace bro, you make great videos.

·

The Ego is the Enemy bro! :) I read that book and it reinforced a lot of my beliefs on the subject. Great read if you want to check it out :)

Welcome for the reminder, brotha! Thanks so much for the insightful comment :) I appreciate the kind words

#oneloveDtube

Already what I am doing, I am trying to make some thoughful comments to get people engaged, then form small community. Will do my best, and also good liuk to You! :)

·

That's great! That will help you out a lot on here and your friendships will build :) keep at it!!!

#onelovedtube

I do all encouragement here on steemit to keep going. Imagine for 202 days each post is hard to earn single dollar.

·

Keep at it! Look you have almost 1500 followers :) start working on your post. Go follow people who you admire and really like their post and start emulating some of the stuff they do with their blogs. Maybe that will attract more people.

#onelovedtube

Well at this stage in my life I will give anything a shot!

·

Nice! I'm glad you took on that challenge! Let me know how it goes, my friend :) we're all supporting you!

#onelovedtube

The only one who doesn't make mistakes is the one that doesn't do anything.
A mistake is an opportunity to learn more.
Thanks for sharing.

Dtube is one place in internet where hate is just not welcome. Im here short but this community is full of positive energy. Just like you said.

·

That's true. I have a theory behind that. I want to share it because I believe it's important for DTube moving forward.

#onelovedtube

·

I was thinking about your video and i came whit this idea. Mayby this will also help newbies contents to spread better?

"We only keep what we have by giving it away"

·

Brilliant! I love that :) so true

#onelovedtube

I feel it brother. Good message
Keep up the good work.

·

Thanks bro!!!

Oh thank you very much Sir. This has gone a long way in helping me. I used to feel very discouraged and at some point I thought it was inferiority complex. But I'm glad now because I'll begin to encourage others who were like ms

·

I'm really glad it helped :) very happy for you! Keep at it! You're doing the right thing!

#onelovedtube

it is very very helpful to me because i am new.

What a great message about encouragement, exactly what I needed right now! 😊

·

I’m really happy it helped :)

Sorry times, we have to get used to doing some things without expectations or appreciations... It makes life easier.... Takes for sharing

·

Just do it for the love, baby. Just do it for the passion.

Although life sucks without appreciation, life sucks even more without passion.

#onelovedtube

Hey man great to see that you are expanding if im not mistaken im following you 3 times already . will keep checking your videos

·

Pues se trata de apoyarnos todos como un gran equipo: " te sigo y me sigues te ofrezco mi voto y tu me ofreces tu voto..." se trata de respaldarnos en grupo y transformamos en los andamios para que potenciemos nuestras zonas de desarrollo próximo.......

starting with you !! thanks !! it really helped !!

Forgiveness is also something that helps the forgiver more than the forgiven.

Couldn't agree more. Talk about hitting the nail on the head brother. Loved it, really nice work!

·

Thanks so much brotha. Hammering away!!! 😂

·
·

Staying the course no matter what adversity stands in the way. That is the true test of faith. When someone prays for patience does God bless them with patience or the opportunity to be patient?

Lego that nego haha. Trademark that bro, let go those negative thoughts

I wonder if there are any meetups in India

·

probably a ton!

Yep! I've done that alot but very little lurrrve comes back at me lol. x

·

Keep at it! Patience and persistence are key!

Encouraging the community to grow by helping others is a great idea.

Ok, time for me to put this social experiment into practice. Thanks for sharing.

Hi @dlife, I am a brand new minnow. For the past few weeks (while waiting for my account to get approved) I've watched quite a few of your videos, and I really appreciate your humility. I appreciate your outlook and how you are being supportive of this community. I wish you my sincere thanks for being cool in that way. I feel like you have the right attitude towards this platform and now that I'm here too, I am happy to be able to officially "subscribe" to your channel. It's a pleasure, keep up the good work and I look forward to getting to know you more!

·

I'm a new fish too. STEEM is the future!

Hi @dlife. Thanks for the message. I have started using steem just recently and had felt like leaving it off. I am quite comfortable with other social media platforms as I am quite involved in the various activities present there but when it comes to steem I feel a bit moved apart. I almost felt like giving up steem and keep moving with insta and facebook. Thanks for the little motivation. This message serves really great.
Hats off man
👍🏾👍🏾

I'm actually not feeling unappreciated here, I've been loving the fun and feeling grateful, but thank you. This is about the 6th video of your's that I've watched and again thank you. I've enjoyed the information and entertainment. I'm not new to photography but I am new to vlogging and I appreciate what I've learned from you in regards to that. Keep up the great work!

·

Hey!!! Oh wow!! I gotta check it some of your blogs ;) thanks for bringing it to my attention! Thanks for watching the videos! I hope they’re helping somehow :) let me know if you need anything or want me to make a video about any particular subject! I’m here to help my brotha :)

·
·

Thanks @dlife! I'll keep that in mind and ask you here if I think of something... I just ordered some gear to try to make my vids a little more easy to watch. I was going to go with a gopro and a bunch of accessories but I decided I don't want to carry all the extra gear when I'm out on my landscape shoots so I just got some phone accessories. I considered getting a DJI gimbal, but again the weight, so I just ordered a little selfie stick, also a bright led light that clips onto the phone, and a wireless lavalier microphone. Hopefully they will help, if they don't or I stop making vids, they weren't that much $. Cheers!

I enjoy feeling underappreciated, part of the crowd. It makes me real.

But I'm a freak.

·

Hahahaha! Totally made me laugh.

Freak! :)

Hey whatever floats your boat 🚣‍♀️

I love this @dlife, it is quite informative and encouraging. Most discouraged persons in most cases find it hard to display boldness. As you have stated mustering boldness to initiate a communication thereby encouraging others would in return make us encouraged just like "giving free and receiving free" in return. Thanks a lot.

We seem to be on a similar train of thought. Today I wrote in my first post Fractals: "Open up your world and increase its scope by appreciating the small things." Now I hear you talking about appreciating the small things.. Man I'm happy to be here, I say a personal chant before bed every night that I think helped draw me here to experience this positive community. I'll share it here for the first time ever because it gives me courage and maybe it will encourage some of you to put yourselves out there as well.

This is my soul.
Peace, love, health, happiness, benevolence, prosperity, protection, knowledge, strength, confidence, creativity, movement, positive momentum, mobility and smiles.
Rest in peace all those that I have known that have inhabited this Earth but do no longer in a physical form.
Creativity, creation, abundance, protection and prosperity for all. Understanding and forgiveness. Acceptance.
Thank you
