Leofinance: The Ownership Mindset

The existing system has most people trapped. They are slaves crying for freedom but never achieving it. We live in a system of indoctrination. Unless one is from one of those special families, we are all conditioned.

What are we trained for?

To be obedient stooges. That is the fate of most.

It is a reality that is tough for many to swallow yet that is exactly the case. This is something that starts at a young age, in the educational system. We are not taught to be free thinkers or aspirational leaders. Instead, we are prepared to get a job.

That is the mindset most have. It is true they yearn to be on the other side, but they cannot handle it. Freedom is something often discussed but, to be honest, most get crushed by it. Rather, they meekly go through life, always placing the blame on someone else.

Do we not see it on Hive. After all, isn't it always the whales fault? Do not see post after post about people droning on how they are mean and don't care about anyone but themselves.

People are such wonderful students. As long as they can point the finger at someone else, then can relish in their self-justified anger, while also doing nothing about their plight in life.

Leofinance is the opportunity at freedom and most are crapping all over it.

The Ownership Mindset

I once worked for a guy who ran a very successful sales organization. He was one of the best producers in the region. His numbers were consistent along with being at an elevated level.

Once we were talking about things and what made him successful. He summed it up this way: his job is to do whatever needed to be done. Read that again. He felt it was his job to do whatever needed to be done.

Whatever the task, he was the final line of defense. Nobody to drive the truck, he did it. If the bathrooms needed cleaning, he would do that. Paperwork had to be filled out, he took care of it. Naturally, there were people hired to handle those things for the most part, but guess what, people call in sick. They quit. They do all kinds of things.

The moral of this story is that he had the ownership mindset. He took responsibility for what was taking place. He didn't plead or beg. Simply put, he knew what had to be done and went about doing it.

How many have this attitude on Leofinance? Does we see people taking this to heart?

Still Operating Like A Slave

What is ironic is the events over the last couple weeks really drive this home.

Not long ago, we got news that there was a new model being implemented for the Ad Revenue. Does everyone remember that?

Essentially what happened is that everyone who has Leo Power suddenly had a financial interest in what is taking place in terms of the traffic on Leofinance. We are all sharing in the money coming in since it is going to be pushed to the LP holders.

Now we are all part owners in the ad revenue. We each have a piece of the pie. The success of Leofinance.io as well as the associated applications that have ads on them is ours.

Here is where the shift in thinking has to enter. Most still operate like it is the problem of someone else.

Remember, do whatever is needed to be done. Is this the mindset most have?

A few months back I wrote 10 Ways To Be Successful On Hive. Since Leofinance is a subsection of that, it is applicable.

One of the suggestions was to take ownership.

Here is what was written:

Owners have different mentalities. They understand that overall success enriches their wallet. We are no longer just users of a platform but, rather, those how have responsibility to the long-term path of the ecosystem.

People complain about being the product on sites such as Facebook, yet fail to fully grasp the transition on something like Leofinance.

We are not the products here. In fact, we are all partial owners. With one's stake (Leo Power) each has rights to a portion of the Ad Revenue. This is the same as getting paid from the proceeds out of a business.

In other words, we all are part owners in this website (and the assorted applications). Remember, LEO is the overriding token for all else.

What Are You Willing To Do To Make Leofinance Successful?

This is a question we all should be asking ourselves. Why?

Simply put, LEO can offer many on here life changing money. In just a few years, entire financial futures can be radically altered. Since there is an ownership model in place, anyone is free to join in.

Articles such as How can we increase ad revenue for leofinance.io. offer up suggestions at what each of us can do in this area. We already see a number of posts about how to write a SEO optimized article.

Following some of these show an ownership mindset.

Doing whatever it takes to make Leofinance successful is crucial. This is now in the hands of us. Not only are we a community that is here because we enjoy it but we also have a financial stake in what is taking place.

So what are you willing to do to make Leofinance successful?

Biggest step to being successful is actually wanting to be successful so many people out there lose plenty of money due to poor decisions.

However it is on each and every one of us too use the tools we have available.

We can- and should point people in the right direction and we can tell people how- and why to use the tools.

But as you said, it's up to them to use them.

They have to have the motivation for success and the desire to get ahead.

Most talk about it but that it is. Action is what makes the difference, as with anything in life. There are those who talk about losing weight and those who go to the gym.

I've been talking about going to the gym, but I usually end up at McDonald's on my way there. The emotional quick-fix a tasty burger gives me is awesome. lol

Hard to pass on McDonalds. It is a vice of mine too. Fortunately I am not out too often so I dont stop by there.

When I worked, I was there way too often.

About 90% of gym memberships are actually never used. People will invest a lot of money into these and then never go.

And be willing to put in the effort. This is something people often overlook.

Of course, I presume you meant that as part of your view.

Plenty of people put in the work however they still don't want to be successful and self-sabotage so you are absolutely correct and that was part of my analysis.

You have to have the desire to be successful. If you are not motivated to be successful no matter how much hard work you put in you're never going to achieve that dream.

Excellent content and excellent question.

1

Self sabotage usually is a sign of deeper issues. Many do not believe they warrant success. So while they say they want it, there is something within them that causes them to take action counter to that.

Decades of conditioning will do that to a person.

Absolutely it really sucks when you see somebody get opportunities and just self destruct things.

Which really makes it hard for the people who are looking for opportunity and willing to put in the effort.

There is always a balance though. That is the reason why opportunities go to people who are worthy.

1

As they say, there is a reason why there is plenty of room at the top. Many do not even take advantage of what is right in front of them.

Sad to see because people end up struggling a lot more.

You touched on a great topic. It is really important to realize these.

I think LeoFinance is already successful and I believe it will be more successful in the future. What matters is where do we stand? Do we want to remain products on WEB 2 platforms or an owner on WEB 3?

I hate being a product ever since I know Hive. That's why I'm willing to do whatever I can for a platform that gives me freedom and ownership.

If LeoFinance is more successful in the future, it means we will be more successful as well. If we are determined to stay here, then we must do our best to succeed.

A lot of people are being coached into the world of 9-5 and that has taken a huge part of ownership from us as humans...

We need to be told what to do all the time which is crippling our growth.

Almost everyone knows the way to get fit is through exercise but no one wants to do the hard work involved.

I've been heavily focusing on optimizing my posts for SEO reasons. I think it's working, as I pulled some decent traffic according to the last update from @hitmeasap latest report on LeoFinance traffic.

Would be awesome to see some kind of incentive for those pulling in the most traffic aside from just the post rewards. I dunno how it would look like or anything like that, just an idea.

Your content has generated 597 page views from Google in the last 30 days. These are the top 3 posts in terms of page views.

I strongly recommend trying to optimize these posts and keep them up-to-date. With results like that, you're killing it. :)

It sure is and it's also easier to rank older content, which makes it important to do necessary changes and keep older content up to date.

That is something I have to get back to. Updating my older content and optimizing it some more.

I will hit that starting next week. I have some things to handle first.

I'm thinking of making a post with the top 3-5 articles or something like that for a bunch of people, that pulls in traffic. Would make things easier for people who're interested in keeping older content up to date.

Not really sure which people to include though.

Doing anything like that helps a great deal I imagine.

Getting an article with some strong links to older articles and sent out a few different places would help a great deal.

If anything you will add to them.

There is no way to do that since we have no idea who pull in the traffic. You might right the article yet someone else might place it somewhere which gets a lot of attention.

Who gets the credit then?

Also ranking is a building process. What happens if I cite your article 40 times over 6 months in different articles along with Tweeting it out 5 times? Suddenly it is more valuable yet you just wrote the original post.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I see your point, but I am definitely with @l337m45732 on this. I have mentioned this a few times these recent days.

I don't have any answers for how to do it, but I am sure a system like that would encourage people to produce more optimized content, as they would be rewarded "over time" for the efforts they put in once while creating the content.

That would naturally lead to more traffic, more Ad Revenue and growth as well. So it would be a win/win situation for everyone involved, on many different levels at the same time.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That is all true but now you are putting a premium on optimizing content over the marketing/spreading around of said content. In other words that would encourage people only to share their own stuff.

Maybe it is the way to go. But as we discussed, both aspects have to be pursued.

Look at the twitter feed posts. Those are valuable clicks coming through.

Like I said, I don't know how to do it properly. I'm just saying that I think it would do wonders.

You obviously have good points, but I wouldn't focus on sharing my own content, because I would still earn due to the Ad Revenue at the end of the day.

How about some sort of on-going contests?

  • XXX LEO for the users who've brought the most organic traffic to the site in let's say 6 months, counting only content that has been produced after the contest was announced.

It would be fairly easy to track, as long as you knew the users who were participating. You could track the progress with a monthly post or whatever, revealing numbers and stuff to hype things up a bit.

Hmm.. I actually kind of liked that idea, so I might have to do something with it. lol

I love that idea. Maybe @khaleelkazi can help come up with something?

I see what you're saying! That's why I said I dunno how or if it would work.

Clearly the article was good if anyone cites it multiple times, so I think the original creator should still get some kind of ad revenue boost or something.

Good and optimized, as I am learning, are two different things. I wrote a lot of good articles over the years (if I do say so myself) but obviously they were optimized for crap judging by the results.

Now I am changing that, or at least working on it. Hopefully it will pull in more traffic.

Whether I send them out or someone else does, makes no difference. I keep sending out others articles on Twitter too.

It all adds up.

That's the beauty of community efforts. You can do a little bit of everything if you want, but it's totally fine with doing one or two things and focus on that. Others will jump in and cover other areas.

I think there is nothing better in the world than having that feeling of freedom that we can achieve with Cryptocurrencies, especially with the #Hive family and with #LeoFinance, that allows us not only to dispose of our money when we have a need, but we can write any thing but that yes without disrespecting or belittling someone else's work.

Cryptocurrency can lead to that.

It is up to us to adopt the ownership mindset and take control of our platforms. This is vital.

I keep on staking LEO, as it is my crypto priority for the year and I'm trying to be more active in the community. Had a few harsh days last week but I'll do my best this week to help LEO grow.

That is true. Some simply put their heads down and go. The most successful tend to be the ones always with the time to take on something else.

Funny how that works.

After finishing academic studies, most people's goal is to do a job, aka, work for others. That's how they see things. Maybe they don't think about doing something on their own. Even some people think about it, they see it as very risky. They are happy to get a paycheck regularly.

When someone has an ownership mindset, his action is different. He knows what he is up to and where he wants to see himself in the future.
