⏺ Turn everything you touch into gold! Part 2

TO GOLD PART 2-min.png

Perfection consists not in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
-Arnauld, Angelique-

That's one very powerfully true quote.


With everything we do in life, we are given a choice. What choice is that, you ask? The choice to either do something averagely, or to do something with all you've got.
Why do people settle for less? Don't just accept your position that has been given to you. You need to understand that you have the power within to create a success of anything you desire to.

That's it. This topic isn't that technical. It's a very simple approach to things. Just give it your all. Do not settle for less than the best. If you truly deserve something, you can and will obtain it!

'Turn everything you touch into gold'.

I mean come on.. The phrase says it all!


I see it the same as flipping property, as it is 100% in relation to this concept. Taking something that's not so good, and creating something out of that of greater value.
What about Warren Buffet.. He says he's a 'value investor'. Why? Because he has the skill and the drive to take any business that is currently in the dumps, all the way to making far more than ever before. Every business he touches turns to gold.

Please, don't mistake this concept for some higher-power, or some magic trick that only certain people have.
That is not at all the point of this. We all have the potential. It is 100% in your head. Like I said previously, it's a choice.
Just the mentality that you can, and will make a success with the things you are doing.

Look, this isn't going to be a ranting article of how I explain why things aren't working out for you.. Because for those of you who know my writing style, you will know I am blunt in my approach. I don't feel sorry for those who don't put in the effort.
I don't want to act like some wannabe guru or anything, but I do have my own philosophies I run by. In my opinion, it's all a numbers game. You simply need to know the rules, and then play the game.
I won't be getting into that right now, but if I get enough requests, I will consider making a future post for you guys on my thoughts on that topic, and what I think would be the best approach for 'coming in hot' on a platform like this.

With relation to this current topic, and Steemit, you just need to do it.
Turn your account into a masterpiece. You need to approach every angle, and become a professional. By repeating this process enough, you will certainly start to see progress. Your account should be your portfolio. Like a CV for a job application. You need to take the utmost pride in it.
Become an all-round, diversified master in your craft. If you can do this, I can guarantee a 90% chance of you doing better.
This was a bit longer of a post than usual, I know. I hope you guys got the message. In short, you can prosper in anything you set your mind to, as long as you decide to dedicate yourself turning your passions and efforts into pure, solid, shiny gold!
Let me know your thoughts. I have 25K SP, so I like to reward nice comments!

@enazwahsdarb Hello from Sunny Southern California!! I have only been using Steemit for three weeks and continuing to learn how this platform works. I am following you and love your bold banner and animated character. I have decided to spend at least one day working on my Steemit platform. How do you manage your time around work and still being an advocate here? Stop by and say Hi. I also followed you on Instagram.​

Hello from Sunny Southern California!!

Hello from Cape Town, South Africa!!

I am following you and love your bold banner and animated character.

Thanks for that! Glad you like it.

How do you manage your time around work and still being an advocate here?

I wish I had a secret formula for a magic trick with this one.. Let's be real here, the only thing that causes a result, is action, correct?

Well, with that being said, just take the action.

We all have the same amount of time during the day, that's obvious, but what most people fail to recognize when making 'excuses', is how much of their time they actually spend being productive.

So my answer is simple: Just take unthought action. No pondering. Just doing.

Time management? My schedule is simple. I sleep 4-6 hours a day. Sleep at 2am, up at 7am. Every single day. I don't do anything special. I open my MacBook 10 seconds after I open my eyes, I go to YouTube, I search a 10 minute motivational speech. As soon as it's done, I grind.

I work from home, internet entrepreneur. So I usually work in bed :)

I still waste a ton of time during the day in my opinion. I would say wake up earlier than you're used to, and hustle for 2 hours straight on something before your day even starts. This will give you a really good feeling, and a ton of confidence for the rest of your day.

Your point is valid...I agree that you can brand yourself in your post..consistency leads to success my friend...keep steeming to more success am sure that you will be a big success here.

Thanks for those awesome words my friend! Appreciated.

I agree with your opinion too. Consistency definitely leads to more success!

It's awesome how you explain things so easily and still making it a motivation to keep up the good work.
Have to say it again: You make such a pretty post
Thanks for this, really help me out.

you explain things so easily and still making it a motivation to keep up the good work.

I appreciate that! Thanks for your kind words :)

Have to say it again: You make such a pretty post

yeah I remember you said it for my previous post too haha! You're very sweet.

Thanks for this, really help me out.

Ah it's my pleasure. If I am able to give assistance to those in need, then I am fulfilling my mission.

Thanks for this post, you have inspired me greatly ,I believe that all I an doing now I can do better and make them into Gold. Its just to twik the mind set a bit
I have been looking for inspiring post like this to boost my confidence level so I can do more and here it is . Thanks again

I like your optimism, and honesty. It's good that you realize to yourself that you need to improve. Great stuff! With that mentality, anything is possible for you!

I have been looking for inspiring post like this to boost my confidence

I am glad I was able to serve that purpose :)

Thanks again , I would looking forward to reading more of your post

Every time you have something new and awesome to share. Love your concepts! Upvoted

Thanks for that brother! I'm glad you are enjoying what I'm putting out there :)

Let's do this.

Great empowering words @enazwahsdarb!
I think we All have the "higher-power, or some magic" inside...we All are made by power...we All are magicians because everityng we touch changes in some way...hopefully changes into gold. We All are coCreators of Life...of 'our' lives!!!
Your words emanate strength and trust and they are remarkable pointers to the one inner force/power/strenght/beauty.

Thanks for that my man! Awesome of you to say.

I think we All have the "higher-power, or some magic" inside.

Amen to that! It's simply a matter of believing and thriving!

I like the way you described us all being our own magicians. Nicely said :)

Really awesome!

We create through magic...using our I-magi-nation. We are a nation/world of magicians!
So let's imagine only beautiful things for all of us!
"Imagine all the people" turning everithing around them into gold...hopefully not only the material things.

Dude.. That's so beast! I dig that analogy!!

Really nicely said. We are all our own magicians :)

Hey mate I'm new to Steemit this week and found your article pretty darn cool I like how you have formatted it and how it all looks. I think if I had one thing I'm struggling with its embedding the pics and finding cool ways to display photos/videos etc which you seem to have a good handle on. Any tips or past posts that have this sort of info? Would love to check out. Will follow you :)

Your first week here? Welcome brother!

Thanks for those compliments. I appreciate your kind words!

I actually haven't made a post-topic about formatting. It's just not with my theme of writing.

If you go to your 'Submit a story' page, you will see a link saying 'Markdown Styling Guide'. That is a good guide to help you get a kick start in the right direction :) I linked it in the word there too, so just click there and it'll take you to the coding guide.

Stay tuned!

that's awesome thankyou!

I stayed tuned, and I'm not sorry:
"Turn your account into a masterpiece. You need to approach every angle, and become a professional. By repeating this process enough, you will certainly start to see progress. Your account should be your portfolio. Like a CV for a job application. You need to take the utmost pride in it." - best phrase I read all day! And you are right! Paws up!

Good to see you back, my cat follower :P You sure sis stay tuned :)

best phrase I read all day! And you are right! Paws up!

I appreciate your kindness :) Thank you!

Thanks for sharing. I find these articles to be a huge motivator when I'm not seeing much of a return on my comments or articles and this just encourages me to double down.

To look and see what others are doing to be successful and how I can copy there techniques and make them my own. Great stuff.

My pleasure for sharing :)

Good stuff :) I'm glad you're taking things seriously.

I got minimal coding skills and am still sorting out markdown style

Same :)

Do you use markdown to get those big bold red/blue letters?

No that's not markdown :) Those are custom made images.

do you make your graphics or have someone to do that?

I have a designer making my cartoon characters, and that's it. Everything else I do myself.

Now go for gold!! :)

I have a designer making my cartoons, and that the only outsource I have. The rest I do myself.

Do you utilize markdown to get those huge strong red/blue letters?

Especially this part sounds incredibly familiar LOL. No, I do not use markdown for that. They are all custom made imagery fonts.

Best of luck!

Great post and you just earned a new follower my friend! Keep it up and best wishes from kenentertainment! I like the animated Dudes, they look just like you in your pic.

Keep it up and best wishes

I appreciate that man! Very cool of you to say :)

I like the animated Dudes, they look just like you in your pic.

Thanks! They are cartoons of me LOL. I should hope they look like my picture :D

Thanks for that. Stay awesome! Keep in touch.

So i take it that been diverse with your content will help you to succeed here on steemit?

Well.. No.

diverse with your content

Firstly, I don't think content is everything. I think it's surely an important factor, but I think relationship is the other side of the coin. I also think that you should be constant to a particular theme of content, otherwise you could confuse the audience.

When I spoke about being diverse, I meant in general. Just with everything you do you need to build that to a professional skill. Raising your caliber one step at a time. Eventually, with enough reciprocation, things will have to improve in results :) Make sense?

Nice share
Your post always interested

Thank my dude! I appreciate that you are enjoying what I'm putting out there.

Nice! Agreed totally says the golden whale! I think what makes Buffet such as good investor is that he start out buying where strong businesses, that he wants to own forever and where he likes the product. Warren Buffet drinks a lot of coke! You and this whale to like Steemit, so that is a very strong foundation for success! Also, you should always go for 'monopoly' and start with the endgame in mind. U&R!

I am nothing more than the same thing you are. Conciousness.
