"Greed is good"

We all know the famous saying from the movie "Wall Street", "Greed is good". I am not going to say that statement is wrong. If you want to get somewhere in life, you have to be at least a little bit greedy. As long as you are not killing people for it, greed is indeed good. But if you want greed to work, it has to be combined with another very important talent. PATIENCE!
If you don't combine greed with patience, it won't end well. I have been there, there are only very few people that can make a lot of money in a very short period of time. And the factor that helps them, is mostly luck, or they are doing things that aren't really legal.

Hive as an example

You can be greedy on Hive too, posting 10 to 20 posts per day, but it won't work. As people won't keep on upvoting your content. Because it is too much. The chances are you will get downvotes pretty fast after your 7th or 8th post of the day. That is being greedy without patience, it just won't work. Being greedy on Hive takes patience. You can post one or two posts per day, comment as much as you want. But you will have to have the patience to let your account grow. Make good content, and appreciate other's content by upvoting it. This is the way to grow on Hive. Greed combined with patience. I started on Steem almost 5 years ago, without any investment whatsoever. The only Hive I bought was a month or to ago, where Hive was at 30 cents, and I bought about 2250 Hive. All the rest I have earned with being consistently "greedy". Posting every single day, curating my self, and reading and commenting to other people's posts. This creates a network, and gives you a larger following every day. Is that greed? I think so, I am here to earn money, so that is greed, but I am patient with it. I have the time to wait years and years if necessary to earn bigger. It is the only way it will work.

Morale of the story, to all the Hiveans, be greedy, but with patience!
