Life is a game of inches

in motivation •  5 months ago

I am a big movie fan and one of my favorite movies is Any Given Sunday. It's a football movie with Al Pacino, Denis Quad, Cameron Diaz, James Wood, Jamie Foxx and LL Cool J. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you do.

3 months ago I did a post about the Best Monologues in Movie History with some of my favorite movie "speeches" (aka monologue).

One particular one stands out, one I used to listen to every morning when I woke up or when I needed motivation. The speech still gives me goose bumps to this day.

"Inches" speech - Any Given Sunday (1999)

I highly recommend you watch it, it is four and a half minutes and will completely fire you up.

If you think about it, a lot of it applies to Steemit as well. Being successful on Steemit is not easy, it takes a lot of work and more importantly persistence. Building an audience is difficult, time consuming, and slow. There will always be people who have it easy, but for most of us it is relentless hard work.

What will you do?

Set yourself a goal, like post every day something that offers value to the community and find at least one user with similar interests and engage them in their posts. Social media is as much about networking as it is about content creation.

hallo sir what happned?

motivation and creation to the community

This is highly motivating. I took on the challenge to make lots of valuable comments on people's posts everyday and that's been a sweet thing for me. Wonderful movie @ipromote, I hope to see more of your posts 👍

Thank you @ipromote for posting this. So glad I checked my feed today. I have not been very active on Steemit because of a family situation which has dragged my spirits down. And I just check my feed once a day or every other day until things are OK and I have the mindset to really comment and engage.
This is what I really, really truly needed to Lift my Spirits up.
This has helped so much.
Thank you again.

Like the singer? I did like that song Good Vibrations.
If I was him, I would likely be at the gym.

@ipromote

Haha, is he still living? No more like this guy:

https://steemit.com/byteball/@themarkymark/byteball-airdrop-the-largest-steem-airdrop

Then it would make perfect sense, that you don't like other Byteball airdrop postings.

And thank you for the recognition that we have so much influence to "steal" you users.

But let's just say, we're in a telegram group with the Byteball team, and they confirm every day there's enough money for everyone.

You actually went in and sniped referrals to other people's post. You had no influence, you were just jumping in other people's posts and sniping their referrals.

@themarkymark

Can you please explain what you mean by "sniping", so we can stop it if anyone disturbs?
I'd tell that to the other members of the Telegram group you flagged.

Thanks.

You go into other people's posts that are promoting ByteBall, and ninja send funds to people who are responding in the comments to steal the referral fees. It isn't a matter if you did it, I have proof you did. It doesn't even matter if you were the first to do it, you tried to do it along with others. In bird culture, this is considered a dick move.

@themarkymark

Sorry we didn't want to steal any reverals, just sponsor some people 49000 bytes for the airdrop.
But we have now noticed that many scammers are asking everywhere.

Please give us the nicknames where you think this are your reveral friends. We'll check our list and send you some Byteball bytes.

But by the way, it is technical not possible to change the refereral when people have used your link.

This was such a great movie! Is it just me or are all the best monologues that happen in the movies happen to be in sports movies? One of my favorites is from the movie "Miracle"
