❇️ NOT A MINNOW YET (500 STEEM POWER)? WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE?

2개월 전

IMG_1497.jpg

This is the perfect time for every "Steem User" to at least become a minnow as of right now. It's only $65 for 500 Steem Power! 💰

I'm already hearing the excuses rollin' in... I don't have the money, I can't afford it, I rather earn it, maybe next time... Are you being serious? 😏

It's all nonsense in my eyes, people will do whatever it takes to make an excuse for anything these days. 🤦

They rather spend 100X more time and effort to "make an excuse" and avoid by just taking action and doing it.

You know how many times I hear people complain all year that they want to lose weight and get in shape but never do it?

Jesus, probably in the hundreds of millions on social media!!

Why does this happen? Is it their mindset? Are they fearful? Do they lack confidence? Who the hell knows, everyone is different and have their own problems.

Listen, I totally get it. I know how it feels to have no money or influence. I was the same way when growing up in the 90's.

My thinking and mindset was fucked up... I had that poverty mindset and always made the excuses for everything why I couldn't do shit.

Why do you think I read over 100's+ of business books in the span of my life. Just for fun? HAHA... Hell no, I wanted to become great at everything. 📚

I know $65 bucks is a lot of money for some people but I totally get it. Let me ask a question, why are you spending hours on Steem then while you can be out there gettin' that cash?

Shit, I can go out right now and get $65 probably in an hour on the streets of Las Vegas by asking people for it.

Yeah, it's that freaking easy to do. 😂

This post isn't really about becoming a minnow. It's more about about a persons mindset than anything else.

I found out decades ago that making "excuses" is no way to live life.

Guess what? We are all going to fuckin' die one day and I have no plans to live a life filled with excuses and regret.

You only live once, don't be a bitch... (saying in the nicest way possible). 😅

Many will get offended by this post. I don't really care... I think a few people will get mad just because they know it's the truth and are just mad at themselves.

Don't get butt-hurt reading this... it's just words on the internet. LOL

Keep On STACKIN! 😎

Read your article and read all the comments. Let me give u my excuse for not buying steem. Its a bad investment. It loses value when market goes down and doesn't gain value when market goes up. My steemmonster investment has gone 10x while steem lost 90% of its value.

·

Why not do both? My Splinterlands Stack is worth over $3000! :)

·
·

Because steem only loses value.

·
·
·

Why waste time “value” on steem then? Lol

·
·
·
·

Because making steem from my existing steem doesn't cost me anything but i am not putting any new money. Also i play a lot of steemmonster.

get your shit together @stackin, Go put it all on red and come back an orca haha

·

I’m thinking about putting it on the green 0 and get 35 to 1 odds 😂😂🙌🏼

The trick, actually is to go with some friends and bet on all the numbers except for one...

Or maybe that was just me doing drunk math at the last casino party I threw.

·
·
·

That's smart, the only problem is that I have no friends haha jk

·
·

that's the shit! :)

This is a great point. I do have 500 SP, but was recently thinking how easy it would be to buy my next 500 - not that I have that kind of cash just laying around, but I can pull that much together.

·

You got this, if your building everyday... you are on the right track :)

Gah, I want to be there and will be VERY SOON!

(Even if the price goes back up)

Honestly I'm pretty shook by what I found out earlier. I even had a deeper sinking feeling about the economic situation here. I mean for starters if a person buys 500 STEEM power they still have a $0.00 vote so they won't see any tangible difference.

Secondly I didn't even realize the effects that the STEEM Backed Dollar situation had on the inflation situation. In the last 365 days STEEM has actually inflated over 17%. That is why I'm totally shook and if I would have known that I would have never invested to get to 10,000 SP back in November. But the situation was so confusing and hard to predict because there was no way to tell how much SBD was going to get converted to STEEM ......etc.

I thought the Inflation was 8.59% which is too high in the first place but that we were getting back 2+ % back by holding STEEM power which mitigated the risk. But then even on top of that we have the handful of larger investors / witnesses / founders who are able to reap the majority of the rewards and Steemit INC just slamming the price every month.

Now realizing the inflation rate was actually 17%, and 10% of the reward pool is being pulled away in the Worker Proposal System which is being paid in SBD which are going for $0.61 and falling and that will only get paid to very few proposals.

Honestly when stuff that has less than 5% inflation is falling like BTC and Litecoin then the premise of investing in STEEM doesn't look promising.

I have done the math and STEEM would have to get down to $0.01 and then I would have to invest $10,000 and others who were supportive of my content would have to do the same to have any sort of power in the reward pool. Then maybe a new crew could wash out some of the problems and get into witness positions and actually have a chance to turn a decent profit. Somewhat of a problem is always going to be Steemit INC though. They need to be running a skeleton crew right now and we have no clue how much they are paying some of those employees.

·

You just wrote a blog on here haha... I have an idea, just give me all your Steem to fight my Steem inflation HAHA

·
·

I have to use the STEEM to invest in a more legit project.

Right! ?? geesh, I'd rather gamble on Steem then in Vegas! 😂

That's the truth, i have experience lol

The thing is a lot of these new users don’t even know how to buy steem 😯

Send them your binance referral link hahaha

I understand your point but let us look past those who truly cannot afford it. There are many in countries where that is a weeks salary.

Of all the Planktons, how many could afford $65? There are tens of thousands of accounts on here that could be upgraded to Minnow instantly. We could see another 1,000 Minnows overnight if people wanted to.

The problem is that the most dedicated are those who have the larger accounts. Watching the numbers, we are seeing Dolphins and Orcas growing meaning the larger Minnows and Dolphins are buying and powering up to get to the next level.

The Planktons are not doing that as a group. It is a shame but it is not going to change no matter what the price.

·

I totally hear where you're coming from... it's really not a steem issue, it's a mindset problem in the world we see today.

I grew up poor, livin' in section 8 housing in my teens paying like $75 rent/month and on food stamps. I could of been that guy, doing nothing about it. People need to help themselves and start figuring things out. I always stated that the best investment in life, is to invest in oneself. 9 out of 10 just won't do it.

As for Steem, yeah we can all vote and help people become minnows but most will just power it down and cash out. Like I said it's the poverty mindset prob... not a steem prob. It just a world we live in today.

I truly don't have the answer how humans can change their behavior. They must learn to do it themselves I guess... adversity is the best cure for change.

·
·

The proverbial you can lead a horse to water.

We can present the opportunity but, unfortunately, most will not take advantage of them. Instead, they will complain how the system screwed them.

I get what you are saying about the mindset and, yes, I agree that is starting point.

You’re so right! 😎

Truth man...im waiting on a deposit to clear so i can at least cross the 1000 steem power mark. Anybody not powering up now isn't a believer...

I think you meant 10k steem power lol 💪🏼🙌🏼💯

Boom! there we go :)

It's only $65 for 500 Steem Power! 💰

I'm already hearing the excuses rollin' in... I don't have the money, I can't afford it, I rather earn it, maybe next time... Are you being serious? 😏

How many Steem would you be willing to pay for a redfish kidney so they 'quickly' can turn out to become into a 500 Steem Power minnow? };)

Shit, I can go out right now and get $65 probably in an hour on the streets of Las Vegas by asking people for it.

Yep, that may well be true. But unfortunately not many live or are in Las Vegas. ;p

BTW, I've born with three kidneys. Hahahaha

·

People dont have to live in Vegas... I can go to any street and get $65 in about an hour just by asking haha

·
·

I can go to any street and get $65 in about an hour just by asking haha

Haha yeah, I kinda would like to see you wandering thru the streets of Petare in my neck of the woods to confirm in how many hours you'd make $65 to backup your hasty assessments. };)

Hear hear, try it in Klang Malaysia where people work their ass off 12 hours a day for 10 USD! WTF is a Minnow any damn way its just a word on the internet right brosky?

Currently being a minnow means pissing away 65 USD that can't be withdrawn for over 3 months and while you might say everything else but bitcorn is a scam (perhaps) it's not like steem is a wise or safe investment for the sake of having a title as the only freshwater character in this fucked off broken failed (past tense) ecosystem..

Before you ask why I'm here or some dumbshit that I'm not compelled to justify with an answer I'll just say maybe it's to troll moronic posts like this..

I say good day sir!

Hear hear, try it in Klang Malaysia where people work their ass off 12 hours a day for 10 USD!

Haha yeah my 'pana' @skramatters. I bet that what our brosky Charles Fuchs ignores, is the fact that even when in Klang Malaysia people barely can get merely $10 working their ass off 12 hours a day, In Vzla peps must do the same during three fucking months of minimum wage to gather together those same ten buck$.

Someone should go read my last post on the Dunning Kruger effect haha..

This mentality is pervasive amongst first worlders especially Americans. I can appreciate the powerful mentality to not think "poor" and to live in a state of gratitude and abundance. But, it's one thing to climb out of section 8 government housing in the states compared to living in poverty in developing nations with crooked and corrupt kleptocracies that make the USA look utopian.

Furthermore, I've been to Vegas and all over the states and I don't know that many people that are going to give a meat head a dollar or spare change to pay for whey protein supplements and ground turkey LMAO. To get that money daily you'd have to be a junky with some hustle or give fantastic hand jobs providing organic coconut oil lubricant..

Dude for real said stop being a bitch haha, it's not the first time this wanker has caught my attention with his sheer stupidity either?

I'll give it right the fuck back, is it the hand or the mouth that got u out the hood pimp?

Someone should go read my last post on the Dunning Kruger effect haha..

That's entirely true!! A good bunch of peps around here should READ your Dunning Kruger effect post.

I certainly did it yesterday, but at the time I was already too fried galloping through the steem blockchain all night long as to be able to drop any fairly coherent or extravagant comment. Hahahaha

I even have pending a handful of due replies to the comments that you and others have left in my recent posts. I'll do that asap after I catch a peaceful and well deserved sleep time. ;)

As for the rest of your message here for the pimps, I guess I'm gonna round out the impeachment with this video next. };)

People getting in the game now don’t realize how easy it is to reach that 500 SP level. $65 is all it takes. It took me forever the first go round when I first started because Steem was at its high point when I started.

When I got back in the game here a few months ago, I started at like 150 SP in my account and have purchased about 15K Steem for powering up and buying various Steem Engine tokens. In my opinion, this is the best time to invest in yourself for the platform.

·

When I got first In was May 2017 and steem was like 1.20, as a new person I was like f this I’m buying 500 steem instantly. It did eventually pay off as in 6 months steem went to $6 and sold for some profits lol

You only live once, don't be a bitch...

This should be the official Steem motto and on the front page of every frontend 🤣

I'll be sure to send it to @ned HAHA

As a weight loss coach trying to help obese and morbidly obese people lose weight, I surely know all about excuses, @stackin. I hear my old excuses over and over again. I wrote a book about weight loss excuses and how to get over them. People buy my book, love it, and still do not try. It's exhausting and disheartening, and part of the reason I do other things besides weight loss coaching now.

As for powering up STEEM, we have SPUD 6 by @streetstyle tomorrow, Oct 1, and I will participate on one of my blogs again. There are a lot of smaller blogs doing this each month now, and it is empowering to see.

I'm a minnow on one blog here, and a fake minnow on the other two, thanks to delegations. Everything I do is to help other small blogs grow while increasing my own sp too. You are right to push the idea that now is the time to move up in the ranks. Who knows how long we will have this cheap opportunity?

You are no one on STEEM without some sp. Growing it is where everyone's focus should be now. It is hard to make new and small people understand this. It took me over a year myself. I'm not offended at all by your post, but encouraged instead.

·

I forgot all about SPUD!! Thanks for the reminder and your comment. People can learn from people like you :)

First you buy 500, get used to it and then you want more 🤑 and buy 10x to become Dolphin. 😂

·

You think like a true baller! If everyone had this mindset, they probably be winners in life lol

You the man! 😎

2 reasons for me. I'm putting my money into bitcoin and splinterlands. Serious question: What's the point and benefit of getting to 500 steem power and becoming a minnow?

·

So you can be a partner in the network instead of just a person who uses the space.

·
·
·

Minnow is the first major milestone. Your Steem power now has some weight to it. You have influence, more than you did before.

This is the point where you can delegate and start getting decent returns. You can make your Steem work for you, not the other way around. It really opens a lot of doors, you know?

Why not? 🤷🏼‍♂️... just bought 100 packs of steem monsters yesterday and everyone should already have bitcoin as there #1 crypto 😀

You are right friend, it's low enough to stop making excuses! I need to get on top of hopefully morphing into dolphin status! <3

The question is, how are you helping the little ones?

I give them some votes but I am delphin in other currencies

Damn It Charles I keep Buying more BETA Packs of Steemmonsters instead of Adding to my Steem Power. I am Sorry my Friend by I am Addicted to NFT's (Non Fungible Tokens) that are The MONSTERS ! @stackin

It is your perception and you might think all people can think like yourself. The 10x rule might be cool but is not what bring hapiness in the world.

As well it’s your perception also, we all make choices to be act or think in a certain way. One that brings happiness to them is all different in all of us.
