Build a rock-solid wall of friends around you
Plus an announcement about the next few months
Happy Sunday everyone!
Consistency is key. When you adopt a mindset of consistency in everything you do, you will find it much easier to step outside your comfort zone. It’s 2 AM on a Sunday night and I still haven’t written this week’s post, so here I am. After a hard week with literally zero free time, I just got home after a lovely Sunday night, 2 beers deep, ready to give my most insightful thoughts.
Whatever you do, whether that’s studying, working on your business, learning a skill, or hitting the gym, always remain consistent. Getting in shape won't happen if you work out six hours a day five times a month. Hitting the gym for 1 hour a day is a lot more efficient.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have an amazing week ahead. Enjoy the read!
Grow your mindset: Build a rock-solid wall of friends around you
“We are the average of the 5 people we hang out with the most”. Took me a lot of time to understand that. I was thinking that I couldn’t get affected by my friends’ opinions and views and that I knew what I was doing. Well, that’s bullshit.
I realized that I was totally wrong, after the first year of the quarantine. During that year (2020) I had all the time in the world and I was spending it on video games and other nonsense stuff. During that year, I had no job, I failed every exam at my uni and I wasn’t working out. I remember waking up every day, thinking that I would be productive and a couple of hours later I would go to sleep thinking that another day went by and I hadn’t done anything.
All that changed when a buddy (George) introduced me to the NFTs. I immediately fell in love with it and I realized that there was a great opportunity and space to build something. So that’s what I did, I started to build my way up so here I’m writing a newsletter with zero experience in writing but fully passionate to help others.
The journey was made easier by another friend (hey Alex) who has a good understanding of the world's economy and has helped cultivate my mindset and strategy along the way.
Now, my circle of friends consists of 2-3 people who strive to enhance each other's minds in every aspect of life and I’m grateful for that. I couldn’t do it alone and I deeply believe that friends are having a massive impact on you.
I’ve been in both cases, with bad and good friends and I know where both of these paths lead. It might not be easy to see at first but if you feel like you could have better friends, you certainly should try to find them. It’s ok to give up the ones that don’t want the best from you — they don’t deserve you.
When you hang out with people, always ask yourself: “do these people truly want the best for me?“. If the answer is no, you better give them up. If the answer is yes, you should protect them as if they were diamonds.
Doing it alone is extremely hard or even impossible. Building a rock-solid wall of high-value friends makes it a lot easier and faster.
In the past couple of weeks, my activity on Twitter has dropped dramatically. First, it was the IRL issues and then it is that I’m working on many different things at the moment which leaves me zero to no time for Twitter.
But no, it’s not that I’m inactive. I’m working really hard in the background to figure out more ways to add value to the space.
I’m happy to inform you that I’m working on a web3 tool that we are going to launch in March. Unfortunately, I can’t share more info on that but I can say that it’s a tool for both artists and projects.
On top of that, I’m trying to find ways to create a small community of passionate individuals on technology, art and personal growth, so in the upcoming weeks, there are going to be some cool mint mechanisms, more activity on Twitter, and probably a more personalized space for this community.
Stay tuned ;)
NFT News Report
Earlier this week, Coinbase announced the launch of a new open-source L2 built on the Optimism network with the goal to onboard 1B+ users into the crypto-economy.
Obviously, this is great news for all of us, but we yet need to wait for the execution. I’ve dedicated a thread to this, so if you have more questions here you can find some answers.
Blur has changed the balance of the space and looks like everything is hanging from a string. The bidding reward mechanism has created tons of liquidity for traders to be able to close their positions. But at the same time, 20% of the traffic is created by only 10 wallets, and that’s insane and dangerous.
Buying power is getting more and more centralized and it’s really uncertain when the whales will decide to exit. If there’s something that I’ve learned is that trying to time the market is not worth it.
If you are trading NFTs at the moment, I’d suggest you do your research and take a more macro perspective.
Solid Friends are like family they always want to help you. They support you on the time when you need.
