Happy Sunday everyone!
Humility is a great virtue. Being humble is fundamental for growth. Recognizing your weaknesses and limitations while having the willingness to learn from others is needed to start taking action toward development. You can’t change yourself if you can’t see that you are doing something wrong. And trust me, everyone makes mistakes.
A humble person is more likable to people. Not only that but since it's easier for them to admit when they're wrong and apologize, their relationships with others are a lot smoother. A humble person is willing to listen to others and consider alternative viewpoints, even if they ultimately disagree with them.
With all that said, embrace humility, and stay humble as you question everything.
Enjoy your read!
Grow your mindset: Get Yourself a Victory
Not everyone is lucky enough to have the confidence needed to be untouchable from other people’s opinions. As a result, a single failure can cause chaos. One failure will follow the other and that will vanish the little confidence there was in the first place.
I was reading the book “12 rules for life” by Jordan Peterson and at some point, he was explaining how lobsters are thinking and interacting with each other.
Lobsters have their home on the ocean floor and they favor secure places where they can live and hunt for prey. They know that territory matters. However, great spots are always in short supply. So territory-seeking among lobsters produces conflict. Someone has to lose and leave defeated. In the aftermath of a losing battle, regardless of how aggressively a lobster has behaved, it becomes unwilling to fight further, even against another, previously defeated opponent. It will simply lose its confidence.
The same thing can happen to humans too. You might lose your job, break up, or feel rejected, causing your confidence to drop, and now you feel less and less able to make a turnaround.
But how do you exit this loop?
You need to get yourself a W.
Start small, and set goals. Tell yourself you are going to hit the gym every day and commit to it. Set a goal that is achievable and work hard to accomplish it. Once you make it, celebrate.
This is the only way to escape this loop.
If you are fighting with this already, don’t hesitate to shoot me a DM, I’d love to have a call with you and talk through it. You are never alone friend.
Twitter Growth: Build your community consistently — Don’t lose your momentum
As you can tell, my numbers on Twitter have dropped lately and that’s because I took a break from content creation. That causes my engagement to drop massively. But I’m not motivated by numbers, that’s won’t stop me. I’m ready to build it again, and this time will be better than ever.
To be precise, in the past month:
My tweets dropped from ~3500 to 700 (-80% 📉)
Monthly gained followers dropped from 2,500 to 400 (-84%📉)
Global Reach dropped from 7% to 1.29% (-81%📉)
I’m currently at my all-time lows in terms of engagement and activity on Twitter but all that will about to change.
For the next 30 days, I will follow this routine and I’ll share my progress with you in the next posts:
1 hour of replying under others
20 minutes of replying under big accounts
1 hour of speaking in spaces
1 hour of calls with web3 friends
3-5 tweets a day
2-3 threads per week
A similar formula helped me get over 15,000 followers in less than 6 months and it’ll help me exit the pit I’m currently at. Consistency is everything.
If you wanna follow me in this 30-day challenge, send me a message with the phrase “30 days” and I’ll make sure to support you to the fullest during this challenge.
NFT News Report
“No longer an NFT project”
While banks are freefalling, crypto is rising again with $BTC hitting the $28,000 mark. But NFTs aren’t following. Especially after what happened with poopie, Doodles founder, people seem to lose their trust in founders once again.
If you aren’t aware of what happened, earlier this week, Poopie said this on the official server
And later when he asked about doodles, he said: “floor it and gtfo”.
As you can imagine, this made Doodles drop to 3.5E floor and made many people angry.
Yesterday, I’ve dedicated this thread to how founders can build a rock-solid project and actually succeed.
Replies of the week
I wanna say a big thank you to all the ones who are constantly under my tweets supporting me. Thanks for everything legends
Great write up - I see a lot of tweets talking about content quality VS follower count. I asked a question around this but didn't get an answer.
What is your take on companies going to accounts with bigger followings even though there is a sentiment that follower count isn't that important in achieving success?
Good weekly vibes with Bubits! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
