The circumstance you are in has a lot to do with the person you are

The circumstance you are in has a lot to do with the person you are

Nowadays I feel like I’m not as productive as I once used to be. Even when I re-read the articles I write in various blogging sites after publishing them, I feel no satisfaction with my creative side. Today I sat on the chair and analyzed as to what happened to me. Why am I not improving myself with increasing number of publications ? Every angle of investigations have converged at one single point- The circumstance which I’m  living in! The scape goat!

I’m in home since last few months and doing agricultural jobs here. As some of my followers already know, the place where I live in is a small and remote village. The people I talk to on a daily basis are mostly illiterates and don’t understand the basics of Internet. They don’t even know the language English either. On living in such a narrowed circumstance, the things I find on internet doesn’t interest me much. Be it some great scientific article I happen to come across, or something important about steem blockchain or cryptocurrency. I don’t find them to be as interesting as they once seemed to me. Instead, anything related to my real life intereststs me a lot!

Few months back I used to live in some big cities in my country as part of the job I had then. During the period of those 2 years, I had learned a wide range of things. Getting new friends from across the country was a big benefit and boon to me. I could understand the broadness of the world in its entirety( I’m a skeptic here of my own words!). Each and everything appeared on newspapers seemed to have some relation with my real life, which inturns further boosted my zest to continuously learn new things. I was able to sense the feeling of thriving myself as a better person in those days. It was the circumstance existed around me that helped me in this process. Learning something new everyday seemed a joyful habit.

But now, I feel like I’m in a stagnated situation. I have nothing new to learn. I’m repeating the same things over and over again. The circumstence I’m in doesn’t encourage me to be creative. Despite working hard, I always end up getting too bored!

If you are a person having big dreams and living in not so suitable circumstances, you are prone to be affected by the similar conditions that I now go through!

Your surroundings do really matter when it comes to shaping the person you!

We the people of the World..

We the people of the World..

India has the largest written constitution in the world. Preamble of our constitution starts with this very statement- We the people of India… On steemit we have no boundaries, no nation is there to limit our freedom. We can be identified by this very sentence- We the people of the world..! Indeed we are!

We are here in hunt of the people. Each and every upvote and comment we receive has the hands of real humans behind it. Being so, why should one hesitate to socialize with others? No reason to justify that behavior. I still have the same strong feeling I had when I joined here that the steemit is a social media platform. We can get acquainted with each other and the very concept of earning is much associated with the real people who value our post!



The talent one has in engaging with the community is what determines the success rate here. Growth of those who are self restrictive is stunted and dwarfed. As social beings we are blessed with the trait of interacting with others.One needn’t to do much but should replicate this inherent talent here in order to emerge successful. But many seem to be reluctant in doing so! One such thing being follow and follow back.

When we follow the big players, chances are very narrow to get a followback. Because they have already gained a good friend circle by now so it is more than enough for them to survive here.  But when we follow someone who is of our level they will surely follow us back if our homepage and interactions look good enough. Again there are some kind of people who never give a followback even when every aspects of our profile seems fit. I will call them arrogant. I dont think their nature is different even in real life.

This platform is for interactions. Good content producers, commentors and curators are all here for creating a good eco system. Being part of it by engaging with the community is in our hands. Grow yourself and let others Grow!

Thi is me,
