“You can’t always visualize the reward, but you can believe in the sacrifice if the vision is strong enough.” – Don Connelly

Long time ago it was considered that talents, visions and prospects were not enough to bring the into physical or financial limelight it was always very difficult to have a podium to showcase that unique thing about you that you needed to be appreciated. There was a time financial rewards are only attained if you are tested and trusted on an avenue that people know.
Today we live in times where our experiences, visions and abilites can take us hight even above the gravity of the moon, dreams are no longer had at night, it's now in the blockchain battlefield where you can go far with sacrifices made to achieve your visions and desires.
two years ago a a blockchain was established to take away the "cons" and make "pros" possible, with only you being the limit to the height you can attain.

Ladies and gentleman, welcome to STEEM.INC

Are you still contemplating about this community? I came to steemit a clueless nobody, and today through @ned's visionary that birthed steemit, I can tell you the story Is different, Africa has been plagued by lack of job opportunities, poverty and lack of platforms to display individualistic talents and abilities, the story has certainly changed, will you join the crusade? to eradicate poverty and enhance entrepreneurship tendencies all over your community, and your society?

The knowledge of steemit alone is like a needle through a camel eyes, that Is making a way where the government or your society cannot. Steemit is paving way, like Jesus here is your chance to walk on water it seems too good to be true? Yes I know and that's why you must join today and live that dream.
