I've been into the Crypto world for about 6 months and no while I don't have the Ferrari yet (like I was expecting 😭😭😭), neither do I have the Instagram models draping around me (I thought I would by now too 😭😭😭), and I don't have the well-toned body with six abs (I wanted to hit the gym but it was too painful😭😭😭😭😭). But in my short while here, I've learnt some very valuable lessons.
One of the biggest lessons I've learnt from Crypto is patience. I have not always being the most patient person and many times I just go "HULK SMASH".
But coming into Crypto I didn't have the money to put in as a student who was already broke. So I had to gather various coins and wait for their value to go up. Fortunately or rather unfortunately I entered Crypto in the bull market, so I had to be super patient. I remember checking Coin Market Cap everyday praying for a spike in price which never happened by the way, so painful 😭😭😭. But all in all it taught me patience and that lesson has been an invaluable one in my journey through life as a whole generally. Being using what I learnt from Crypto in other spheres of life and it has been great so far. So instead of Magic Internet money, I found patience (fair enough but not the same😭😭😭).
Also, it taught me hard work. Anybody that told you that Magic Internet money is like Magic (did you see that guys 😂😂😂) is lying to you. Unless you already have the money to invest, it's not sweet and easy. At some point when I just started I had to be curating content on about Four different platforms. Then I was curating on Steemit, Scorum, Uptrennd and a last one I can't remember. I had to drop Steemit (I will vent about why I did that and my problem with Steemit in another post) and now I just focus squarely on Uptrennd and Publish0x, occasionally posting my sports content on Scorum. But it's not easy starting, so I discovered that those videos of guys with Ferrari's and Instagram models following them around and them working out and only sitting in front of a screen for 5 minutes and making $5,000 was a sham(I've been scarred for life guys😭😭😭😭😭)
But I'm grateful for what I've gotten and learnt and the people I've met through Crypto. Also I'm specially grateful for Publish0x because it has made my writing better. When I joined Publish0x my writing was mediocre if I am to be a bit nice to myself but in the one month I have been here ( I'll do a post celebrating my one month on Publish0x soon, anticipate that 🥳🥳🥳), I saw some great writer like SkinnerCrypto and Mad Max and so many other guys who I don't know their names and they just blew my mind with the way they wrote, and I'm gradually seeing improvements in my own writing. So that can be another thing I learnt from Crypto, my writing is also better.
