I planned it and I achieved it.

On seeing the first edition for this week, I had to quickly scroll down to my first ever post which was my introductory post almost two years ago on my phone. It wasn't easy doing that but I wanted to confirm if I did make any goal for Hive when I started but no, I didn't. Then, I never thought of having a goal but within me, I know I have goals to achieve in my mind which I will work towards.

Then, I searched for the newbie initiative post I made after a month of joining Hive and I laughed at myself seeing the impossible goals I made but I wasn't understanding how Hive works then. I just said my own to fulfil all righteousness on the post 😂😂 Those are the days when we were just a newbie.

The screenshot above was when I made a goal of achieving 500 Hive Power at the end of the initiative which only lasted for a month. How was that possible? I was just starting and I only had little Hive power apart from the ones being delegated to me and I wanted to get to 500 Hive Power. An impossible achievement but I had faith then na 😅😅

The funny thing about it was saying one of the ways to achieve that in less than a month was to post once or twice a day. Haha na! Is that even possible, considering how strict and difficult Hive is except you have a strong connection with the big whales who will always show up on your posts with bigger votes, I had none but went with my strong faith.

I kept the faith going even after the end of April and I still haven't even reached half of the goal. Though, I was inactive and didn't focus on Hive. If only I'd known the benefits of staying committed to Hive then, perhaps I would have gotten past my goal by now. I was just too not serious about Hive while I focus on another blogging platform helping me even before I knew Hive.


Then comes my first anniversary on the 30th of March, this year. I managed and pushed myself to get to this amount. That day, I had 609 HP even though I have seen people having more than 1000 Hive Power and that was when I was committed to getting to that number too. It was at that time I was actively engaging on this platform day and night and I was able to build more followers and engagement on my posts.

Then comes the month of June or so, I reached my first ever 1000 Hive Power and it was on a Sunday.

This was my happiest moment because it was seen in me through my service in Church. I was just too excited that I promised myself to maintain the number and never go below it but above. Right now, I am having 1300 Hive Power. I was supposed to have 1500 but I powered down some weeks ago due to a challenge I needed to solve with my siblings.


I was motivated to reach 1000 Hive Power when I saw some users having more than that in their wallets and because of that, I pushed myself day and night to get there. My engagement paid off!

Just two months ago, I have been thinking of how to increase my Hive Power to at least get to 2000 HP before the end of this year as that is what is on my mind. I still do not know how it will be possible because I must say, I am not earning as I used to before but I am never giving up.

I have some plans to gather some money to buy Hive and then power up because I have decided not to power down anytime soon again. Even if I need money, I have some HBD in my savings that could serve that purpose while I leave my Hive Power to keep growing.

If I can't get to 2000 Hive Power before the end of this year, at least I should be having 1700+ and I believe God, including my engagement and activeness which would help me too.

I achieved my 1000 Hive Power and I can still achieve another 1000, making it 2000 soon.


Thanks for your time.

You are so sincere and dedicated a person, Princess. I M sure you will achieve your goals. I have reached only 1100 Hp so far and you know Hive is the only platform where I work. I am even far behind you. Hehe. But that's what I could do with my optimum efforts.

Your content and engagement both are of excellent quality. Your faith is strong. How can anyone stop you building. You are on the right path, sweetheart I ❤❤

We all are trying our best and giving the optimum effort. Once we set our minds to a particular goal, we would achieve it. It's just a matter of consistency and never giving up.

We all would get to our goals. Thanks so much for the encouragement 🤗

That was an amazing content, making it through hive simply means you just have to get favor of some whales that support you. It could be very unfortunate that sometimes after sitting for a long time going through making content alone to recieve less support especially if it's a mind blowing one.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day.

You get the point here.... Once you can gain some whale's favor here, trust me, your effort in dishing out quality content would definitely pay off. It's just a matter of getting one through your effort here and one needs not to give up. Thanks so much for stopping by.

😁😁😁
Yes, I believe I will achieve that since it's all about your engagement on the platform.

Don't worry, very soon, you will look back and see how far you have gone on Hive too. It's a gradual process.

Thanks so much.

One very thing i love about setting goals is the the faith we always put in place whiles making the decisions.

I believe you saw many possibilities in posting twice a day😁 some how you just knew that you would attain 500 HP. I know that sounds funny but having that goal I believe has made you focused and dedicated to Hive at that time even though you didn't reach your expectations. The truth is we set many goals for just setting sake but deep within us we know that we can't attain it. My teacher taught me something in school those days, he said, "when you are aspiring for a thing, aspire bigger than what you want, so that atleast if you didn't reach the big one you would end up landing at the one your heart intended initially".

I know you to be a resilient woman sooner or later you would hit 2000Hp. If it is you, it is just the matter of time.

Hahaha..... Wish for the biggest thing and watch how things get going. My sister will always tell me to wish for something bigger because she believes in God and herself. At least with God, all things are possible.

We can just try our best so it won't be as if we never tried when we do not eventually get to achieve what we aimed for.
Thanks so much for reading.

I always dream big o. Your sister is right, there's nothing impossible with God. just imagine wishing for something small from God when he can give you even the biggest.

We can just try our best so it won't be as if we never tried when we do not eventually get to achieve what we aimed for.

But our best can never be enough , sometimes we need to go beyond our best.

Thanks so much for reading.

You are always welcome ma🥰

congrats on your milestones, i have an advice for you...

You said something about buying hive and powering it up, i think instead of powering up the hive bought, you can do a swing trade....

Buy the hive, keep it in your wallet and wait till hive pump to something around 0.9 to 1 dollar
sell it and wait till hive dips again to 0.5
then you will buy back the hive which would have doubled.. you can power up the profit and wait for the next pump to carry out the same transaction again...

Hive pump once in a while and that is the best time to do such a trade...

I read this again and again and I love this advice from you. Thanks so much for showing some concerns here too. This is indeed worth following up with.
