There will be no big payouts or large following without goals, do you have them?
I did say I will fill you in with everything I learn from the mentorship training in the MLM( Multi-Level Marketing ) center I signed up with. I am Keeping my words.
On Monday, I didn't have the opportunity to join the training because it was scheduled for 8 am. and I was late. They are strict about time, and even though I woke up as early as 6.am., I wasn't able to get to the training on time. I promised I will be on time today, being Tuesday, and I did.
Once you make plans with your subconscious, it makes a habit to help you win. This is exactly what I did. I told my head I have to wake up early today, prepare against all odds and attend the class on time. Even though I slept late, as early as 5:30 am, my subconscious woke up.
You won't be able to achieve big feats without goals
I was startled out of bed, thinking I was late again. I realized I wasn't and I was glad. I rushed to the bathroom after exercising and brushing. My friend asked where I was hurrying to, I told her a training session scheduled for 8 am, one in which late coming means missing out on everything. She was skeptical that they will keep to time, I didn't want to tell her, I had missed the training on Monday because I was skeptical about time consciousness too.
I left early and got there on time, wrote down my name, and moved to the training hall. At exactly 8 am, the class began. We prayed, and we had self-affirmation exercises, we recited them, and settled down for business.
Today, the training session centered on goal setting. It was educating and insightful because as it stands, I already have an overview on how to achieve most of my goals in life, the MLM business, most importantly on Hive.
Every point I listened to and jotted down, I transformed those thoughts into what I wanted for my Hive account. You remember I said I signed up for the MLM organization, not only because of the earning credibility but the lessons I will be gaining from the mentorship class, which I will use in other businesses of mine.
I am proud to tell you that it's already starting. The topic around the goal-setting today woke up a little bit. I realized I have a set goal for the next three months on Hive, and I leverage the information I gained there and plan to run the race of Hive with it.
For instance, I told you I wanted to be able to gain up to 1000 followers or more before the end of the newbies initiative training. Today, I got a sneak peek at how to do it. You see, the moderator mentioned that in our MLM business, if we invite 100 people to the first business class, there is every possibility that 10% of these folks will sign up for an account. I looked into this insight, and figure out that if I talk to 100 people every day on my hive account, 10% of these people may hit the follow button. From these statistics, I will be able to hit 1000 followers in 100 days, which is exactly three months.
Ten percent of your efforts is bound to pay off
I wasn't working on random facts just because I was told. I had real-time experience, because yesterday, I was able to talk to about 30 people, and three people followed me. With this ideal, I was convinced the moderator was right, after all, because I had direct contact and experience. Knowing this, I am convinced that with effort and consistency, I will be able to hit 1000 followers in three months.
Also, other points were raised, one of them is making our goals, follow the smart outlook,
Listen, we all have goals, and they are only achievable if they follow all of these criteria. If you just want to be rich without giving yourself a deadline, with measurable, realistic, and achievable plans, you are bound to remain where you are. It's important that you have a deadline, and that you have realistic plans.
Deadlines are as important as the goals
To do this, you need to break your goals into time-frames, or quadrants.
Quadrant one- Immediate goals - 1 hour-1 day
Quadrant two- Short term goals -1 day - 90 days
Quadrant three- Mid-term goals - 3-12 months
Quadrant four- Long-term goals - 1-5 years
With this, you will be starting your goals with an end in mind. A deadline helps you measure if you have been able to achieve set goals or not. You will be able to hold yourself accountable by knowing if you hit the mark or fall short of your plans. Once you get a hang of what you want, you won't fall for anything, and you will be able to guard all actions towards achieving them.
Finally, with these plans in place, you start asking the question, why and how. The "Why" allows you to stay in clarity of purpose. You will know the reasons you are pursuing that career, that job, that business, growing your hive account, etc. When you know why, you start asking, how you can get there. Your focus on how will bring you to the point where you set realistic goals and work towards them.
In a nutshell, why-plus-how equals goals. And from the training session today, I learned all of this, after writing this for you, I will take a break, and look into possible ways to make all my goals become a reality. Starting with my Hive account, and other parts of my life. Thanks for reading.
Congratulations @iskafan! You have completed the following achievement on the Hive blockchain and have been rewarded with new badge(s) :
Your next target is to reach 500 comments.
You can view your badges on your board and compare yourself to others in the Ranking
If you no longer want to receive notifications, reply to this comment with the word
To support your work, I also upvoted your post!
Thanks for the heads up hivebuzz
Hmmm... This is impressive. The most important part is that you have a framework that allows you to get the theories and also put it to practice.
1k followers in 100 days? Wowww.
I would like to watch and see how realistic this would be. Hehe
GoodLuck on this one and I hope to get more breakdown of your MLM sessions
Thanks you very much boss. I like that I can implement the theories as well
I know it might seem impossible to gain 1000 followers in 100 days but I am willing to go all the way, and see where it will end.
I'll definitely share my MLM journey with everyone.
Thanks for coming around and for all your support
Yeah. It might be impossible, but the chances are high.
It kinda becomes easier if you can get to meet 10 new authors each day. I've seen your comments and I know that you don't just do it because of word count so, as far as you continue leaving genuine comments, you may as well get 20% reward or more for your efforts. In that case, you may get 10 follower a day from visiting 50 posts.
It's just a probability. After all, humans are quite unpredictable.
Just don't make it a WORK per se. Have fun while pursuing the target.
Yes, I figured out, what I need is to meet new authors too. With everything you said, I can feel it's coming true already. I'll put in my best and see where this goes. And, yes, I'll have fun too. Thanks.
Wait a minute, is there something unique about word counts? Does it count for anything on Hive? Fill me in, please 🥺
Hahah... The word count is kinda psychological, but it's an old trick. For lack of better terms, I will call it an outdated trick.
When I started writing, that was last year in a platform which is already dead. At that time, comments that does not have sufficient word count were seen as spam. I noticed that some people still operate with the same mindset here, but qualifying a comment based on word count is kinda myopic (in my own opinion)
Some times, a comment with only two lines may have more Quality than the one with 100+ word counts.
So, the most important thing is to genuinely make a comment. Whether long or short, as far as it's a genuine comment, you are good to go.
Another thing is, those participating in Engagement league knows that having alot of word count in comments also gives them more points. Hehe.
But the genuity is all that matters.
Lol. I think I understand
What's engagement league if I may ask that too?
Never get tired of asking. Hehe.
This is Engagement League
It comes with pretty good mentions and reward. It also helps to bring your profile to spotlight.
I suppose it would be a good motivation if you have already started your commenting riot 😂.
If you want to join, just leave a message in the comment section of the highlighted post. If there is further question, do well to ask. I would be glad to answer as much as I can.
Hahhah... I am never tired of asking, especially, knowing that you are here today to attend to all of my questions.
I'll check the link out, this might be my chance to gain that 1K followers, who knows?
Thanks for everything 🥺
Hahah... I have always been available to do this here and on discord, but the last few weeks have been filled with alot of physical activities, but I will be more active from this weekend onward.
As for engagement stuff, you can also try to check out Ecency front-end. They have a sort of engagement league too and you will get some points there which you can use to boost your post.
It's like Killing BIRDS with a stone. A typical win-win-win situation.
Someone mentioned this to me once, but I am comfortable using peakd than using ecency, I really don't know why.
Maybe, I have to start getting used to it, if I am looking for a win-win situation
What do you think about reblogs? I have seen the point allocated for this, it's high. But does that look ideal?
I mean, constantly reblogging lots of posts on my timeline. Will that not annoy my followers?
What do you think?
Lemme tell you what I think, starting from the Ecency stuff.
No offence meant, but whenever I go to ecency, I see this
They send notification for EVERYTHING. I wouldn't want to whine about this, but it's kinda disturbing because the notification also comes when you are not on the App. It just hits like normal SMS notification, and I don't want that in my life.
Little wonder why most of my Social Media Apps are freezed?
Most of these are Crypto related so, I freeze them so that I can keep it off the eagle eyes of our Police.
But when it comes to these other social media apps freezed, I freeze them because I don't want to be doing something else, and be getting notifications because of something that I may not be interested in at that time.
So, Ecency has its positives, but I'm all in for Peakd. I still won't discredit it because people earn well by using the front-end, but I won't enjoy using it. Not yet.
As for REBLOGS, please keep away from it 😂.
Not entirely though. Just reblog what you consider to be worth it. Afterall, points you get from reblogging 20 post is not as big as what you will get from writing a post.
So, always be you. Enjoy the whole thing, without stepping out of your world. That's when you will get to enjoy have fun while doing the fun work attached to be on Hive
Wow .... I didn't realize Ecency had her personal app, that's new to me.
Well, in the country we live in, it's important we keep most of these notifications at bay so not to get into trouble
Yes, I'll stick to using peakd because I enjoy it here and I am able to interact faster and better
Reblogs? I barely touch them, I will start reblogging those posts I find interesting, and wish another person should read
It's been fun chatting with you on Hive today 🥺
Hahah... It's nice chatting with you.
Have fun and enjoy
You too boss.... Thanks 😊
you're such a great teacher and trainer :)
i love to see you in action
Hehe... Thanks Boss Lady.
Somehow is finally HOME 😂.
Can't wait to see you back in action. Like, full scale action.
Start with a video 😂
As for @iskafan, she is blazing
a video is coming today... hehehehe maybe posted tonight if i can get it done LOL
i have so much on this new schedule now that i've missed a whole month of action.
i needed this! :)
and yes - I've been noticing @iskafan 😏 anyone that gets my attention is blazing 😉 let's see her continue to bring that passion and excitement to charge all around her too! hehehehe that's when you know that it's CONTAGIOUS energy - when its not just lighting yourself up - but drawing others.
we love that 😍
Awwwnnnn.... I'll definitely try as much as I can to charge and lighten up everyone around me. Thank you very much ma'am 🥺
hehehehe glad to hear this - we will be watching you grow and shine!!
Hehehehe, I ain't blazing yet. My fire is yet to start 🥺
hehehehe well maybe you are blazing to those around you.... and then we will be even more inspired when you blaze brighter!
you can always burn brighter, right?? :)
Surely, I can burn brighter 🙈
hehehe yes - its very difficult to gain true followers at that rate - but I applaud her for her determination!!! :)
hi honey :)
hehehe I'm also very much a stickler to time also LOLOL
when I have meetings - I don't like people to be late because it wastes everyone's time of people who were actually there on time! it feels that the people who come late think that their time is more important than others, since we are just waiting around to begin the meeting for them LOL
so - i begin the meetings on time - and if it is important - then people will come. and I'm glad to see that you saw this VERY quickly and were able to get there on time the next day! That shows you have drive and determination! And - it shows that you respect the time of the instructor and the students... nicely done :)
sounds like you have a nice plan here for growing! I use some of those techniques also - but for me... it have changed the way that I grow my followers now. I don't just want numbers. I want the people who engage truly and who want to interact and get to know me.
Too many people are just "numbers" who barely miss you when you're gone. But when you develop genuine followers... (it will take longer - but I find that they are more substantial followers) then I've seen it grow even more significantly.
but everyone must find their own way - and it seems like you are on a good path to grow! You will find ways to tweak it along the way to be more suitable for your benefit!
I like the way you plan :) I'm also a planner hahahaha
thank you for using my #dreemer tag - it's how I found you today! hehehe and I've been seeing more of you! I have been evacuated from my home for a while due to wildfires - but have returned home yesterday, so I hope to be around more :)
I'm preparing for a Dreemy virtual hug from our Original Dreemer.
The fire in California is a big one, but it's just a momentary lapse. Hope you had a good rest.
Welcome Back 😋
Is there something called "too much rest"?
If so... I had this.
but... it had a recharging effect! there was some time that my mind was really struggling a lot... and it seems that God had the right plan.
just take everything away from me so that I know what I want back ;)
it worked! Thank You Lord hahahahahaha
and i'm looking forward to the NOT virtual hug. i want a real one :)
plans plans plans for the future hahahahaha
Hahahah... The future is bright. That's what I know and I believe it.
God gave you what you need. Albeit the series of Wants.
Isn't he wonderful? Hehe.
I'm sure that you had enough rest and I'm also sure that your creativity is already overflowing.
Can't wait to Kickstart the whole project. It will be a SUCCESS.
God will blaze the trail for us.
Amen!!! I'm so ready.
are you ready???
I AM SO READY!!!! i want so much right NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.... hahahahahahahahahahaha
and i want it to be a success too! i'm so thankful that while I was gone - everything ran like clockwork!!! that is so important that nothing fails just because I'm "down"
BUT. i also heard that morale was down because I was gone. and that makes me feel good /bad.
you know? hahaha
obviously bad - because i don't want morale down.
but good - because I know that I bring something unique to fire people up about the dreem
and that's important - It makes me realize more of what I bring. not just the idea -but the continued passion to inspire and ignite others. you know??
yeah you know what i mean ahahahaha
i guess we should stop talking on @iskafan's post hahahahaa i forgot where i was LOLOL
Hahahahaha.... You guys can have fun on my post. It's an honor to host this conversation @dreemsteem 🙈
I understand the essence of being on time for anything. Once you are on time, you will be to access last minute information such as change of plans or venues.
I had wanted to be on time on Monday but external things got in the way, and I let it rest, because I thought, maybe, I needed to be late on the first day, so I can value the rest of the journey
So, the next day, being today, I inserted being on time regardless of circumstances on my mind. And I tried to blur everything that might stand in my way out, by leaving an hour early.
This way, even if I don't find transportation on time or we experience traffic congestion, vehicle break down, etc, I'll still be able to meet up.
I will be doing this everyday. This might give me time to get to know other people who are early before the event begins too.
Thanks for putting the essence of time consciousness out to me, I appreciate it.
About followers, I understand the part about the genuine following and the interaction involved. Maybe, as time goes on, I'll tweak my plans.
I'll keep using the #dreemer tag because one of your ambassador, @kenechukwu97 , gave me a warm and passionate welcome in my first few weeks. He did not only delegate HP to me, he also promoted my posts to the eyes of the rest of the #dreemer team. I was really happy to have people I could talk to on my post.
Thank you so much for bringing this dream to the spotlight. It helped me find my place here.
EXACTLY right - too many people wait til the very last second to rush to a meeting - and they need to PLAN AHEAD like you did - by making sure that nothing interferes with that timeline.
of course - sometimes, life cannot be helped and things get missed - this happens!
But... if you are doing your best all the other times... then those "life happens" moments will be rare!
very good! love to see you employing this in your life - that will help you to be very successful - because you NEED information to evolve to your best version of yourself - and information sometimes has time limits, don't they hahaha
and @kenechukwu97 is one of the very best on our team. we have many amazing - but he has always gone above and beyond. our @kemmyb always impresses me too - she is his fellow ambassador.. hehehe they are my two shining stars that can always be depended upon!!! they never disappoint me :)
I'm so glad that he brought you here!!! and yes - DreemPort is all about bringing GENUINE interaction to your posts to engage with you! I'm so glad that you felt that warm reception and I hope you CONTINUE to do so!!!
If not - then we are doing something wrong at DreemPort and I'd love to hear back from you how to improve, if that happens!
And be sure to be interacting with others on the dreemer tag, and also on the posts that you find in DreemPort when you log in daily! Hopefully we will be a part of you building those genuine followers to make your goals achievable and successful!!!
It's amazing how we both thought of the same thing. I sat back and thought over why you said thank you for using your tag. Then my head said, "wait, what if you find people who use similar tags"?
I smiled. This is because my head explained that I will be able to find other genuine authors because they will be breeds of dreemport. This way, interacting with them, I'll gain their trust, and probably their follow. This felt like a win-win situation.
I am saying this because I had difficulty finding interesting and educative posts to read. I was only able to find 20 good ones in the last few hours to interact with.
Once I thought about your tag, I had the light flickering, telling me, my days of going round, tirelessly looking for good posts is over because I just found it with #dreemer
its a win-win-win-win situation! hahahaha
must be AT LEAST 4 wins always :)
1 win for you
2 win for the reader you interact with
3 win for dreemport
4 win for hive
(and probably WIN FOR MORE!)
and yessssss that's exactly what we hoped for!!! :)
that people would start using the dreemer tag to search for others too!
also - i'm not sure if you are using DreemPort yet on your own - or if @kenechukwu97 is entering them for you still! either way... when you are ready - we would LOVE for you to enter your posts onto DreemPort to have others come read your posts!
and then when you log on each day - you'll find other dreemers there too!
don't worry - you don't spend all your time there! hehehe you spend most of your time on Hive! Because that's where we want you to stay and thrive!
but DreemPort is just a way to direct YOU to others to support, and then direct THEM to you.
I'm sure that Kene will tell you more in time - and I'll leave that to him since he was your ambassador! hehehehe
but if you have any questions - i'm here too :)
Oh, smiles, I forgot to mention, my ambassador had already told me about DreamPort and I have an account as we speak.
Today, it was a privilege to read interesting posts on my curation list, and I send in my post too.
I have high hopes that tomorrow, I'll have more eyes feeding on this post, and that means plenty of people to talk to.
So, yes, it's an all four win for me and more wins(if there's room for more...lol)
It's already in my plans for tomorrow 🥺
hehehe nice!!!! I knew he would! He's on top of all those things!!! hehehehe
very very good - and i'm glad that you entered yours!
I hope that you start to be exposed to more writers that you enjoy!
and more importantly - start building some relationships among the ones you like the best! It's my experience that when you keep supporting others that you enjoy - they will come to find your posts too and start engaging with you... then.. before you know it - you're following one another! hahahaha
It doesn't always work that way of course - but its what we strive for! :) genuine followers, genuine support, real connection :)
and there is never any pressure - if you feel like DreemPort isn't for you - we won't come placing guilt or burden on you! hahahaha we might miss you - but never guilting you :)
you do what works best for you and hopefully we all grow! :)
I completely understand ma'am. And I'll hold everything we've discussed to my heart so I do not forget quickly. Thank you very much for being here and speaking with me about every lousy thing I bring up. I appreciate you. 😚
hahahahahaha "every lousy thing"... lol
lesson #1: Don't be over-critical of yourself.
You are your biggest fan. Appreciate yourself and lift yourself up. Strive to find things to compliment yourself on humbly and if you find something you need to correct... do so, but don't humiliate yourself by saying things like what you said above. hehehe especially publicly. LOL
it's ok to admit fault - but do so in a way that is kind to yourself. You see? Build yourself up - don't tear yourself down. The world is very capable of doing this for you (tearing you down). it doesn't need your help!!! hehehehe 😂
this is not said to be critical of you. this is said to point you to honor your mind 😍
I am sorry for bringing myself low. I will keep my shoulder and my head high up from henceforth. Thanks ma'am
Best of luck to you with your goals! It seems you have every intention of putting the work in, so I know it'll pay off for you! Your determination is very admirable, it makes me encouraged to start setting my own goals :)
I do and I am willing to put in my best efforts.
I am glad to hear this, I hope that you will make those goals soon, and work towards each one too.
Thank you so much for coming around 😊
Growth doesn't come without commitment and planning. The great rewards you see today comes from hard work of yesterday.
Keeping to time, staying focused and obeying simple guidelines will help reach to goals.
Nicely done @iskafan
@dreemport brought me here.
I agree with you. The seeds we plant today are the harvest we will get tomorrow. I'll do my best to follow through everything consistently. Thanks for coming around and for your advice
I learned a lot from your tips, I would actually use a few.
Also I hope you get to achieve your goals.
@Dreemport brought me here
Thanks for your wishes.... I am happy you learned something too
This is amazing! You may not believe it if I tell you that I read all the comments under your post after reading your post 😃😂 I smiled and laughed at the same time, it's just so cool to see those persons around and I'm glad you had a nice time with them.
By the way, your goals are achievable. Just be you, have fun and watch you as you grow towards your goal. All the best with it dear
Got here through @dreemport 😊
I am honored to have you read through everything including the comment section. You are a sweetheart ☺️☺️
I'll do my best and watch out for the results. Thank you so much for your unending support 🤗
Aww girl, you deserve every attention you're getting... You're good really 😉 I want to be like you 🚶♀️🚶♀️🚶♀️
Hahahahaha... She has started whining me 😅😅
😂 No nah, why will I? I'm just telling you what's on my mind 😌
