Easy passive income expatriate Filipino nurses can start for only 1000 and 50 pesos per month
Let's face it. We Filipinos love to spend what money we have on things that we really don't need.
It's that time of the month again, and you can see many Filipinos dressed up elegantly. Branded Shoes, Bags, Watches, Clothes, and expensive gadgets. it clearly shows that we Filipinos have a penchant for the best life has to offer. Splurging on salary day is very common for many expatriates, especially those based here in the middle east. Where everything seems a lot cheaper compared back home.

So when the end of the contract approaches we end up scratching our heads. asking, why we didn't have enough money saved to go home and not to continue or extend our contracts. A lot of Filipinos refer to this as "Sumpa ng Desierto" but this is more of a psychological metaphor than an actual fact. This kind of behavior is deeply rooted within us expatriate Filipinos because we grew up not having a lot in life. Later on, having experienced abundance by working here in the middle east essentially gave us a lot of growth opportunities.
So, why do we fail? It is the Financial Discipline that we never bothered to inculcate in our minds and the Financial Education that we really need to be successful in these ever-changing times.
Before we go any further. Let us ask ourselves, What is our end goal? What should be accomplished? What should I be striving for?
Wealth? Riches? Travel? House? Car? and the list goes on....
Given some of us will answer a lot of the above, we fail to come to terms with the number one goal we need to strive for, and that is.
