How to Know if You Can Be a Digital Nomad

Can you be a digital nomad? Are you ready for the digital nomadic life? Would you like to change your office for an island paradise? Would you love to have a flexible work schedule? Maybe you would like to be able to practice sport or realize your passion every day. It seems like a dream, right? Well, it's not that far away!

Every day, more people leave their office work for the flexibility and freedom to live as a digital nomad. The digital nomads are dedicated to work from their computers. This allows them to work from any place, be it the dining room of their house or any place with Wi-Fi, like a house in Bali.

The digital nomads are self-employed, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and full-time workers. They work exclusively online. Income, job expectations, and types of life vary from one to the other, but everyone enjoys the flexibility of not having to go to an office every day. They also do not have a fixed work schedule.

But the truth is that it sounds easier than it really is.

The digital nomad life is not for everyone. That is why this article is written for you. Below are a few signs to know if you are up for it or not. Make sure you are honest with yourself, and you can find out for yourself.

You Are Tired Of The Status Quo

The life of a digital nomad is not an escape from reality, but it is still a different lifestyle. A few years ago, the idea was almost impossible. Now, it is more common, although it is not yet "a normal life". If you do not like to belong to the crowd and you like to take the alternative path, you could be prepared for the life of a digital nomad. However, if you love playing it safe, this is not for you.

You Do Not Mind Being Different

Just like the first point, the digital nomad life is different, and so is digital nomad. Many people find the idea strange. Although once you enter the world you would meet many people who are in the same situation and you will find your support and new circle of friends, many people nearby may still be shocked by your decision.

You Are Flexible

If you hate surprises, the life of a digital nomad is not for you. But if you like surprises and not knowing what will happen tomorrow, then you can make the switch to digital nomad life. When you do not have a good Internet connection, they cancel a flight, or they steal your computer (these are things that can happen) you have to cope.

Can you bear the uncertainty?

You Know How To Manage Your Money

If you are wasteful with money, you must learn to manage your money before launching into this adventure. Being a digital nomad is completely different from having an everyday work in an office with a fixed salary.

The digital nomads are not usually rich, but they have enough and constant income to lead a self-sufficient life. You should not only consider how much you earn to survive day to day. You should be saving for the contingencies that may arise, the days when you get sick (remember that you will be independent), and even set aside a part of the money for retirement.

You Are A Fighter

To become a digital nomad, you cannot be just a dreamer. You must also be a fighter. A successful freelancer or digital nomad is clearly a dreamer. He loves the image that his future projects. Successful people are fighters.

A fighter is a dreamer. He takes his dream, builds it, adapts it to the response of the market, accepts the criticism it gets, and converts it into reality. That you love to dream about future projects and exotic travel does not mean anything. It is only if you are aware that you must invest time to build those dreams that you will achieve success.

So, what do you think? Is digital nomad life for you? If the answer is yes, start now! You can become a digital nomad faster than you think. Prepare your accounts, do your search and find an income that may be remote. Give yourself a couple of hours a day for this dream and make it come true. In a few months, you could be working remotely from anywhere in the world.
