I 100% agree that what de-motivates people here is seeing what others are earning in comparison to themselves.
Remember those grinning thumbs up Exyle Selfies? 'here's what I just BBQd' 'Here's a picture of my Dad, we're just going to the cinema' - $30 a pop back when Steem was $0.20.
Presumably if he hadn't have gambled on JS and was still around they'd now be $600 a pop.
That'd be enough to turn anyone off whose grinding in the early days.
But as you say, you have to give it time, and just either not look at those kind of rewards or just suck it up and carry on rather than 'dwelling' on other people's good fortune!
