Lesson from the bear market; bitter sweet experience


I am a lover of sports and dearly would do anything to enjoy this hobby. I heard a lot about blockchain and the potentials it offers and I decided to give it a try to see if I could gain anything valuable from it.

My intentions on this space was to give timely news about sports activities around the globe. This was the niche I planned for myself, I got recruited from a steemjet competition held in my school last year and I heard there are lots of opportunities here to get reward and value.
I made my first introductory post and applied to work with @diimp. I wanted to be a part of the community and carve a space for myself. My first proposal was rejected and it was devastating. I had to call it quits, nothing was forthcoming also and you know that saying of 'It's not for me'.

That was the whole thing on my mind. I left the blockchain space, the little support I got from my friends reduced because I keep hearing that there's a BEAR MARKET

I got to understand it from the recent decrease in the activities of my friends who were motivating me here. I check their blogs and nothing was happening. When the shepherd goes away, the flock scatters.

I got to learn this from the bear market

  • Never allow a bad moment take away consistency from you

  • The bear market is a time for building for the future

  • Build motivation from the hardworking fellows.

  • Build relationships to help you grow

  • Never get carried away when the reward is not forth coming, stick to value.

I learnt many of these from the little time I've been here and I do hope that this incentive by @infovore and facilitated by @mosunomotunde will go along way in helping us back to steemit.

If I get this, I would power up so I can have more basis to develop more here. I look forward to being a winner.
