Chasing Financial Freedom in Suriname
Objectives I’m pursuing- financial freedom
I'm currently a 21 year old Surinamese undergrad and carrying on with a generally agreeable life at this point. In any case, this won’t last long if I keep up what I’m doing now. Trust me when I say I’m nowhere close to monetary independency. All I own is being or has been provided by. I also never had a job. Anyhow, while not actually having anything of my own I would like to be a financially free individual.
How do I define " financial freedom "
Without truly exploring this term enough. I came up with a definition as follows: ~to be able to afford basic wants and needs~. This definition is nowhere near perfect, but I feel it speaks to me the most when I think about that term.
Why I chase financial freedom?
Before I set this as a goal I wanted to achieve I thought about why I wanted to achieve it in the first place. So to answer this I listed all my basic reasons. There is obviously a hierarchy when it comes to my needs, hence they will be listed as most to less important.
- Being set for life ( home ownership, more than enough in savings account etc.)
- To give back to my “providers” (family)
- Giving back to the community
- Traveling all over the world for the sake of adventuring
How am I going to achieve this exactly?
I actually don’t have clear answer on this but knowing myself, the three main things that I need to be able to do this are discipline, a schedule and confidence. With having those three things working I am hoping to being close to achieve my goal. I am a creative and putting all my bottled up ideas at work would give me some kind of leverage. I know I have potential and it’s up to me to make it happen. But with all the bright ideas I have in mind there is a huge obstacle: Being a full time creative (artist) in a country like Suriname is not something to dream about at the moment because it’s not very reliable as far as I know ( hopefully I’m just a foolish person and totally wrong about it). But I’m still doing my research and I know it’s going to take time before I can be financially free while doing the things I love. Just gotta start my journey.
