If You Piss Me Off... .:. #MyHiveGoals 2023

in LeoFinance3 months ago (edited)

I have mentioned in one of my previous posts that sometimes I look like I'm so focused and dedicated to HIVE, and some other times I'm so disappointed that I'm ranting around like crazy... lol... I suppose that's something normal for us humans (or I'm just lying myself 🙂), that we have our ups and downs... Similar to the markets, they can't go always up (or always down)... You can't be always 100% positive, with a smile on your face, doing great in every single moment... At least, I can't do it like that... I mean, I could smile and FAKE it, but I don't want to do that...

I rant, I'm disappointed in the platform sometimes, I'm disappointed in myself when I don't react as I should when I take things too personally, when they are not like that at all... I know that I'm like that as others who are close to me can CONFIRM it... lol... In some moments, it looks like I will power down all my HivePower and leave, but, something is pushing me to go forwards... Despite all that, whenever I have a "crisis", I do something opposite, diving deeper into HIVE... Something similar happened recently...


If You Piss Me Off.jpg
Created in Canva.com

The last few weeks (maybe 1-2 months) were tough... I went through multiple crises like that... I noticed some negative stuff happening on HIVE, and as a good empath, they stick to me... I was pissed off seeing people doing dumb stuff, and it wouldn't be the problem that it was happening for the first time, but it was a repeating issue, over and over again... I was at the edge of losing that "light at the end of the tunnel... When emotions settled down, I decided to run the weekly HIVE live show in the Ecency Discord!!! The idea was to educate new Hivians about the platform and unite experienced Hivians on that mission, collaborating with the audience, and creating something more than "one talking head" video... You can check the show every Wednesday in the Ecency Discord!

After that episode, I had another "breakdown" that happened a week (or two) ago... I was in a discussion with close friends about things that are happening on HIVE and the direction where we are headed... From our point of view, it wasn't a good direction, and the situation looked even worse as most of the HIVE whales were FOR that direction... Knowing how big the influence of only 5 to 6 big whales accounts, the situation looked even worse... It was the situation when you realized that someone wanted to put you in a place from where you couldn't see that (already mentioned) light! This time it was even harder as fellow Hivians had a similar view and it hurts even more when you have a confirmation of your fears... After a few days, I rented a server and spin up a HIVE WITNESS node!!

The moral of this story is... Piss me off and I will do the opposite of what you expect! 😂 When you think that you will kill my motivation, I will add one more brick to the wall...

The idea for this post was to write about the HIVE Witness node that I'm running with @achim03 under the @liotes account, but this got too long so I will leave that for another post... At this moment, I will just call you to support our witness by voting for us here... If you are reading these posts of mine, you probably know most of my views about HIVE, decentralization, and empowering others, and I can say that I will continue to promote those views in the future... Can't say that Achim is sharing the same views 100%, but we do agree on many points...

Let's go back to the #MyHiveGoals part of the post, and as usual, in the beginning, let's check out HiveStats...

In the last report, I said that I'm chasing an 80K HivePower goal when my goal for December 31 is 79K! 🤦‍ I forgot my own yearly goal... Anyway, with this last #HivePUD, I made that goal a bit closer...

In the last 7 days, if I exclude my 1K power-up, I have accumulated 284 HivePower which is almost the same amount as I did in the last report... That amount isn't just my author and curation rewards, but also some HIVE tokens that I have powered up during the week... Those tokens are generated in the second layer and moved to HivePower!


Again, in the last report, I gave myself a "hope" that I can reach my LEO Power despite being so far from it... I staked over 500 tokens in that week, but this time, I couldn't repeat the same result... So, I staked fewer tokens, but still, not that small amount...

During the week, I have accumulated and staked 270 LEO tokens and to reach my yearly goal, I should at least double that amount in the remaining week... Can't say that I will get there, but I can say that I will continue trying to do it!!! As someone said in the comments on a previous #MyHiveGoals post, in the end, what counts is that numbers going up! It is indeed like that!

GAMING GOALS - Flexible Goals

The thing with Rising Star goals are exactly how they should be... Collecting more cards gives you more powerful stats in the game that later on, give you more income from doing missions... All that leads to getting more STARBITS tokens from those missions that I can spend for buying more packs than I did a few months ago, which leads to getting more cards per week NOW than it was at the beginning of the year... That's how the SNOWBALL EFFECT works!!!

I bought some additional EPIC cards that I didn't have in my deck, so this time, I have added 180 new NFTs to my collection... I'm less than 500 cards from my yearly goal!!!


Regarding my GLX tokens goal, no news about it... I have unstaked half of the tokens waiting for the LP rewards for the pool... I left the other half staked as they still bring some GLGT tokens by being staked...

pg divider203.png

It's time to update the numbers and put them into the spreadsheet until the next week! So, freshly updated numbers for #MyHIVEGoals, on December 3rd, 2023 are:

These are my initial goals for 2023 created on January 15th, 2023:

Join me in this awesome #MyHiveGoals and let's grow together! It is fun, motivating, and will keep you focused!

Thank you for your time,

P.S. You have my vote for you witness

Thank you very much for the vote and especially for your kind words! I would like to avoid that bad stuff, but I can't look at injustice and turn my head to the other side... 😃

Reading your posts I often find myself in line with your opinions and considerations. Hive is not perfect and even I have sometimes had ups and downs as motivation.
Decentralization is something that should always be preserved in my opinion!
The future of Hive will depend on the future decisions of the community and that is why I am happy to support your witness and hope to increase my HP more and more ;)

The future of Hive will depend on the future decisions of the community and that is why I am happy to support your witness and hope to increase my HP more and more ;)

The moment when I felt that this COULD be obstructed and that some decisions could be made WITHOUT the community, I decided to get involved... That was one of the main reasons for starting the witness and I hope that other Hivians will take the initiative to protect their right in one way or another... If we don't do it, who will?

Thanks for the support! It is always great to hear that others have a similar opinion as us! 🙂

I really appreciate you and your perspectives, @ph1102! I'm sad to hear about the negativity that you've experienced here, and about the whales wanting to go in a direction that is not good for Hive. I'm still apparently not aware of the details of this movement. I feel you on the empath thing in relation to other people...yeah, it sure can be a bugger!

Huge congratulations on your incredible successes in the face of great challenges! As I told Achim, all my witness votes are presently used, but as soon as I have a free one I'll vote for your witness! I really appreciate that, even with things that really bother you happening on the Blockchain, that you still maintain such unwavering commitment and dedication!

I just did my massive powerup of 2,715.315 HIVE straight to dolphin level for the December 1st #HPUD. I love and believe in Hive, and I'm determined to grow here to become a force for good on the Blockchain. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

I'm still apparently not aware of the details of this movement.

Well, there were more different initiatives that were kind against the small creators, which is unacceptable from my point of view... Some of the witnesses that are on your list were involved... 😃

Congratulations on your power-up! That's a huge number!

Ugh! That's unfortunate to hear! Do you have any links to this so I can go take a peek? I always want to know what the witnesses for whom I vote are supporting!

Thank you very much! I really appreciate it! I grew my Hive Power by over 88%, with one small action! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

I always want to know what the witnesses for whom I vote are supporting!

hehehe... You should check what they are talking about and work, on BEFORE giving them a vote... 😃

Currently, the big topic that some of the "big guys" want to push is to remove author rewards from HIVE... It is still just a discussion, but...

For example:
https://peakd.com/reward-pool/@r0nd0n/hive-blog-rewards-will-need-to-go

Well, yes, indeed, that's very true! I truly do my best to do that, but one thing that I've noticed is that there are areas where I agree with them and other areas where I don't. I wish I could find a solid set of witnesses with whom I agree on all important topics.

Arg! What the hell are they thinking?!? Remove author rewards?!? That is utterly stupid! Author rewards are an integral part of what makes Hive, well, Hive! Thank you for the link!

I just read his article, and I think that removing the reward pool is equivalent to throwing the baby out with the bath water. I removed my vote from his witness, and gave it to yours. I have more vote reorganization to do. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Great job on that growth; and you have another witness vote! Cheers! !BEER

Thank you very much for your vote and support!!!
Appreciated... Let me check if I have some !WINE 😂

I will vote for you guys later on.
I am already at 30 limit, so need to make space for liotes.

Thanks for your consideration!
Lately, I'm doing regular "cleaning" of my witness votes... I pick my votes by the actions of witnesses... You can't find a trace of some of them... Don't see how inactivity helps to HIVE and can't find sense in supporting those people...

I think it's fine to do that. Hive is always changing and people can always disagree. I don't think it's bad to have these ideas being debated and I didn't realize that was why you created a witness.

Great progress on your goals

Thanks!

I don't think it's bad to have these ideas being debated and I didn't realize that was why you created a witness.

Well, it's not the problem in debating things... The problem is when there is no other side in the debate... Having an alternative is the only way to go and if there are no alternatives, we are screwed...

Nice achievement so far! Hope the best for this year~ So many HP staked this year
!ALIVE
!LUV

Thank you! It's not "that many" staked HP this year... I mean in general... We can do better 😃
Personally, and seeing people from my surroundings, I'm very happy with what I see :)

@cursephantom sent you LUV 🙂 (1/10)

Made with LUV by crrdlx

@ph1102! You Are Alive so I just staked 0.1 $ALIVE to your account on behalf of @ cursephantom. (1/20)

The tip has been paid for by the We Are Alive Tribe through the earnings on @alive.chat, feel free to swing by our daily chat any time you want, plus you can win Hive Power (2x 50 HP) and Alive Power (2x 500 AP) delegations (4 weeks), and Ecency Points (4x 50 EP), in our chat every day.

I agree with you that lately the Hive adventure resembles an emotional rollercoaster. There are ups and downs and we have either a choice to follow along or try to take an active role in how the ride evolves...

Yeah... As we can't just view from the sidelines how things are falling apart, the only way is to take an active role and brainstorm how to help out...

100k man ... get 100k , this fill be more fun 😅👌👌👌🍻 ... I hold my eyes open when you get there 👌👌😋

That would be awesome to reach, but I'm afraid not this year... Maybe in 2024! Will see :)

Bitcoin has risen further this weekend and is now trading at $41,500. When the price of HIVE remains the same, my mood worsens. But apparently there is a reason, I don’t see trading on the Korean Upbit exchange.

I will vote for your delegate in the coming days.

Bitcoin has risen further this weekend and is now trading at $41,500. When the price of HIVE remains the same, my mood worsens.

When our legacy chain is doing bigger numbers and volume, that worries me a lot... Sometimes I have a feeling that we are just struggling in the mud without making progress... I see people blaming each other, the market, the start, the onboard, etc... Usually, the problem is in us and our way of doing things...

Thanks!!

I agree, everything depends on us. But at least once every six months, the Koreans could make this damn pump :)

hahahaha... If HIVE depends on Korean pumps, we are screwed... lol...
But, I must admit that it's nice to see those pumps sometimes... :)

Look at these trading volumes, friend. 500 thousand per day on Binance and 3200 thousand on Upbit. Unfortunately, without the Koreans, the price of our token is several times lower than it is today.

I don't know if we can ever be perfect in Hive, but I love the platform and I know your point of view.

So I hope you succeed, man. You already have my vote. I'm sure you'll reach your goals, so let's drop those fractional numbers and reach 80k HP!

Hehehe... Thank you very much, my friend!!!

We will get there!

I like that philosophy of life. So I do my bit by supporting the witness.
I don't care much about what the whales do. If the community is clear about the path, they can always make a fork and let everyone go their own way.

If the community is clear about the path, they can always make a fork and let everyone go their own way.

That's an interesting point of view... But, I would say that the community will be the one who will decide where will HIVE go... If it goes against decentralization, freedom of speech, and Hivians, they will show resistance...

I know that many people think that people DON'T care about those things, but when the time comes, people will care...

Thanks for the support!!

Hey, I really respect your views, especially regarding about the things happening on our communities.
I find you to be a honest guy with good morals and I hope you will always stay like that.

I support your work and I have voted for the @liotes witness.

Also on a more happier note, did you see that the GLX Ranked plays give rewards now in the face of liquid GLX ?
I thought that's pretty cool, I've been playing quite a bit.

Thanks for the vote and for your kind words!

Regarding the GLX, I saw that they implemented rewards for ranked plays, but as I didn't have time to play it, have no idea how it works... I had a very busy month and I suppose that it will not slow down, so not sure that I will play the game at all... 😔
On the other side, I do plan to support the token and do the LP idea...

Like a phoenix you rise from the ashes! That is great news about the Liotes witness and a good place to try and inact some positive change in Hive through better governance.

I guess I am feeling similar to you with the ups and downs on Hive in recent times.

Like a phoenix you rise from the ashes!

That darn AI from Canva gave me some problems with creating that image... lol... In the end, it was my fault as I forgot to tick one box... 😝

I guess I am feeling similar to you with the ups and downs on Hive in recent times.

It happens to many... I always remind myself of that "corny" saying... It's not important how many times you fail. It's important how fast you get up...

Thanks for all your support! Appreciate it!

It's natural to react in any way, but you have learned the way to control the negative reactions and turned them into patience and positive thinking. Things get worse for to be taken care of, the problems should be solved rather cursing. You are on it bro.

BTW, your goals are almost reaching the target.

Things get worse for to be taken care of, the problems should be solved rather cursing

Exactly! I would just one thing more... It's important to realize a problem BEFORE it grows into a bigger problem... I remember those ads at the dentist's office, where it says something like Prevention is half of the health

Thanks for the comment!

We all experience ups and downs, and it's important to remember that progress is not always linear. So it's great to see your honest reflection on your emotional journey with HIVE. I must commend you on how you've managed to maintain your focus and dedication to HIVE despite the challenges you've faced.

Regarding your HivePower and LEO Power goals, it's impressive how you've managed to accumulate and stake tokens despite the obstacles.

And I am impressed by the fact that by focusing on your passions and values, you've managed to create a strong foundation for success.

Congratulations on the journey so far

I'll follow the link and support your witness votes.

Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words! ❤️

Challenges and obstacles are those who make us stronger! Without them, we wouldn't grow and wouldn't realize what success looks like!

The pleasure is mine

Challenges and obstacles are those who make us stronger! Without them, we wouldn't grow and wouldn't realize what success looks like!

You've said it all 🔥

Well said my friend sounds all perfectly normal and self aware to me you do you mate and don't let anyone sway you otherwise.
