Succeeding On Steemit Is Difficult But That Should Not Be The Reason To Quit (Learn from what @ogochukwu told me at Enugu)

in motivation •  2 years ago 

Hello guys. Welcome once again to my blog. I know this is not the best of time for many. I know a lot of folks are helpless right now and are at a cross road. Your recruiters told you about the enormous opportunities here, that you can pay your bills with the help of your activities here. And then you joined with your body and soul directed on making the money as fast as possible. However, as clock ticks with the prospect of making the money looking forlorn, you get crazily frustrated.

I perfectly understand your situation. Yes because I have been there before, and may still be there even now but my case may not be as bad as your case. So I know exactly what you are passing through. I know what is like to be in your situation. Okay.

The truth about steemit

One thing with me is the fact that I like to be blunt with the truth. And lots of folks appreciate that. I prefer telling people the truth and then offering my opinion on how best to approach a difficult task and stand the chance of succeeding. That is me.

The truth is getting recognize here...succeeding here is difficult, more so when you are just an ordinary, inactive blogger. Of course, you don't expect it to be any different since money is involved. And just like every other endeavor where money is involved, it must have a level of difficulty in order to be valued. Steemit social capital program will be meaningless if the money is accessible to every Dick and Harry.

Success here isn't a month thing. It could mean several months or even years before one begins to see any appreciable payouts. These are some of the truths you just have to appreciate. Mind you, the fact that it takes sometime before one begins to experience real success, does not apply to those who are docile, who see failure in every endeavor and are always looking for reasons it cannot work, and therefore refuse to do anything other than keep whiling away time and expecting manna to fall from heaven.

What @ogochukwu told me could be of help to you too

I always try to know. I ask a lot of questions from those whom I am looking up to, because I know there must be some things they know that I didn't know. And when I do learn one or two things from them, I like to pass it around to those who are willing to learn.

One of the Steemians of Nigerian decent that I have much respect for, is @ogochukwu. I have always admired the way he compose his articles and respond to messages — very organized. So, when I learnt that he was also a guest at Enugu Meetup, I couldn't wait for the meetup to come!. During the meetup, we had interesting and educative conversations, and below is some of the things he said:

  • "Stay clear off the blogs of those who don't reply messages on their blogs". This was his response to my question on how he managed to get top dolphin and whale followers. Since one of the reasons we comment on articles, is to indirectly market our usernames to the authors of those articles, there is no chance that the author will know you if he is the type that doesn't reply to comments on his blog. When an author fails to either reply or upvote comments on his blog, it means that he didn't read them. And so going there to comment in the hope that he would visit your blog some day, is a waste of valuable time.

  • Stay clear off the blogs of successful steemians when you don't have anything to offer in order not to get marked as a serial spammer. Now, most struggling Steemains makes the mistake of visiting blogs of successful guys and beg for upvotes, beg to be followed or paste generic comments. Know this; such strategies can never attract visitors to you. You will just worsen your case because you will be tagged as a spammer (if you don't get flagged) and will be totally avoided.

  • Comment not only on the post but also on other comments made by your co-visitors. I never used to do this. I learnt it form @ogochukwu. Some authors appreciate those who respond to comments on their blogs. This means that when you visit a blog to leave a comment, don't end there. Endeavor to reply other comments made by other visitors on the same blog. This would make you stand out among fellow visitors, and may most likely endear you to the author.

Hey guys. I hope you are able to pick one or two points from this piece. The truth is that steemit program had no clear cut strategies for outright success. You have to continuously test out strategies and see what the results are. To give up is not the best. Let's keep doing this, perpetually trying to succeed and success will surely come when you least expect. Thank you.

Don't give up. Success is within reach only if you persevere

Starting out in any endeavor in life is always not easy. And so expecting otherwise is therefore an indirect expression of unreadiness in pursuit of any worthwhile goals. This has been the core definition of my person. So in any endeavor I find myself, I usually stayed back even when everyone has left to see if there would ever be a chance for success. Only when all indicators turn red that I would throw in the towel. I am grateful to God that I didn't give up in the face of initial challenges.

Are you finding it difficult to succeed here?

Maybe you are old or new here but you have been finding it difficult to make any headway. Is success what you crave for? Do you want to be taught about utopian.io opportunity and other worthwhile curation opportunities with special tags? Do you want to join a team with one spirit where the success of members is among the chief goals of its leadership?

This is very insightful especially the last point: commenting on the comments of other commenters. I never knew that was important and now @ogochukwu have made me see some light in it. That will be my new routine.

Success here isn't a month thing. It could mean several months or even years before one begins to see any appreciable payouts.

This is my steemit wise saying and always have it at the back of my mind to keep propelling me. I believe it is not now but someday soon. Thanks @eurogee for sharing.

Welcome dear. You have got the skills and will definitely make it huge here. Keep fighting...

This is great motivation this morning. Thank you so much

true its a tough world here but we strive everyday to make it one upvote at a time , one SBD at a time, eventually we will make it

My dear, the world itself is tough generally. Nothing comes easily in life. Like i said in my last post you need to do what you are doing consistently and creatively and don't give up!

True.... Baby steps, one day we would get there.

Persistence is key!

Great lessons you learned right there and you passing it down to us is cool. I really like it that you discussed the aspect of comment today. There’re newbies that don’t like replying to comments on their blog which seems to me as a very bad practice because I see no reason why they’ll do it. I hope they learn something from this. Thank you once again!

Not only newbies. No one actually likes writing. We are just living up to the task out of necessity. Thanks

This is lovely, motivational and inspirational @eurogee. I feel very much motivated and determined courtesy to this your lovely post. Thanks for sharing this information @eurogee.

Thanks boss

Hello old friend I really do love your post....

Succeeding On Steemit Is Difficult But That Should Not Be The Reason To Quit

This is just too true, all though I do tell new and old steemians, that on this platform everyone has his or her own appointed to be heard and it all depend on how creative you are....

I do love what you said:

Success here isn't a month thing. It could mean several months or even years before one begins to see any appreciable payouts. These are some of the truths you just have to appreciate.

Rome was not built in a day......
Will persevere till I succeed here....
Thanks for sharing

Goodluck my friend. Never give up!

And then you joined with your body and soul directed on making the money as fast as possible. However, as clock ticks with the prospect of making the money looking forlorn, you get crazily frustrated.

@eurogee you are a lifesaver, moments before I read(red) this, I was at this point. I hope things improve soon. I will do well to follow those pointers @ogochukwu gave you. The last one is indeed an eye opener. Thanks for sharing sir.

Welcome boss. Never allow quitting cross your mind. Let's do this till eternity. Success waits us somewhere along the line. Amen

Amen sir, thanks again

It was one of your post @jerrybanfield resteem that led me to your blog, is as if you are talking to me directly. Thanks bro, this post is helpful. I have joined your telegram group, I know I will learn from you. Thanks a million time.

You are most welcome

I actually got two points from this post.. One.. I should always reply to people's comment on another person post, I should stay clear off people that doesn't reply their messages..let me start the first point here!

And the second one is also necessary. Thanks

Thanks brother for motivating me by sharing this blog. I hope that one day I will be able to achieve success in Steemit 👍

Yes, we will get there someday.. Giving up is not an option

Welcome. Wishing you success

Yes bro though the journey has not being easy but with this wise words of encouragement. Am sure lots of people are gonna bounce back and follow your steps to success. Thanks man

Sure. They just have to continue.... Rome wasn't built in a day

Is not easy to succeed here very quick it take time and effort to keep on working and put up valuable post all the time with this success is within your range here

Blunt but clear. Thanks i will work on what you said. Success is not easy it takes time and effort. Am going to resteem this

That's awesome if you. Do out these points into practice.

I agree with you, these words have really encouraged me. I have already started to quail. Thank you for sharing this!

Absolutely agree! Blog it is conversation, not monolog. I like this post!

Great you love it

When I was introduced to this platform I always thank @joshuaetim who brought me here. He said, James, this is not a get rich quick scheme. You are a man of intellect and you will succeed but know that patience and commitment are two virtue you will live with if you are to get up there on Steemit. I have followed them and its paying off. Commenting like you rightly said is a way of building a relationship on Steemit and how do one hope to grow in any community without building relationships. Thanks boss @eurogee for this message. I hope you show up in Nasarawa soon.

Indeed patience and commitment is the virtue needed here, and I pray when the day come for the Nasarawa meet up, that I will be there.

Thanks for appreciating the effort here. On Nasarrawa, we will some day. Steem on

Yes Boss i did gained something here. Somethings i've not thought of came to light here.

Stay clear off the bog of those that don't reply to comments.

These set of people are very many here on steemit as they are after what come to them only. So long they can upvote themselves and get some good amount from it and from others, they care less about other commenters. To me, this is very bad.

I'll work with this .
Thanks for the enlightenment.

Yes boss. I had unfollowed lots of folks after my conversation with @ogochukwu. He is such a great guy to learn from.

Did you mean it? I guess I have to do same.

I haven't even thought about commenting on the comments from other users as well at all (except on my comments, posts of course). I always learn something new about Steem and today it's this.
And about success. Everything you do, you have to put some work into it. You can't achieve anything in a fast and easy way. People see opportunities and grab them, but not all are patient and hardworking enough. Especially here on Steem. They see it as a great chance to succeed, but again, you can't expect to become higher or one of the greater Steemians just by waiting and without hard work. It takes some time, and because of that, they give up.
I love Steem. It is building so much knowledge and so many interesting things.
Thanks for this great post. 😄

Your reply contains such a valuable information that will certainly be of use to those visiting here. Thanks a bunch!
