My name is Gav, but I write under the pen name G-Freedom because freedom is my deepest value.
I originally come from Northern Ireland but I moved to Indonesia when I was 23 to start a new life. It’s the best decision I ever made.
I write this blog because I want to leave a piece of me out there forever. I see this blog as a way to be useful to humanity by sharing what I have learned in life. I don’t write to make money as I make plenty of cash from my real world activities. I just want to write and share. I’ll be doing this until the day I don’t have a single word left to say, probably when I die.
I am an avid quitter of things I hate. When I was young people would always tell me to stick with things longer, but I told them to go screw themselves. Because of that, I’m living the exact kind of life I want.
However when I DO feel passionate about something, I never ever stop. I’ve been working out, learning about business and money, writing and traveling all of my life.
I despise arrogant, cocky people who think they are better than others because they have had success in some field. I have more respect for the working man who eats a humble meal and breaks his ass to take care of his family than any king or billionaire.
Despite that, I don’t hate the rich, and I aspire to be rich. I just believe in doing it by working and earning it. The character a man builds along the way is much more important than the contents of his pocket-book.
I think deeply. I don’t believe in God in a religious sense but I think there’s some kind of higher power. I believe you are here once and then you die forever. Make the best of it.
I hated school and quit after high school. Since then I have traveled in 40+ countries, married a great woman and made myself financially free. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that school is the only way to make it in the world. Most of the people who tell you that are the people who have never left the school system and don’t know any better.
I love peace, have deep sense of compassion for the suffering and wish to live with my loved ones safely and undisturbed, but if someone harms me or someone I love, I will gladly do the time to make sure no future threat exists. I think most men can relate to that.
When I was in school I used to get bullied, then I learned to box. Nobody messed with me anymore. I recommend all men who read this site to learn how to fight.
I can not live without truth. Any form of living a lie or fake life will cause me to not be able to sleep at night. I believe totally in the saying “If it can be destroyed by truth, it should be destroyed by truth”.
I am an exact balance between my mother and father. I get a free-spirited curiosity and love of adventure from my mum, and a down to earth sensible and practical mind from my dad. I love them both and could never repay what they have done for me.
I believe life is half luck. Anyone who believes otherwise has never thought about it or suffers from a God complex.
I would love to hear from you. If you have comments, questions or concerns, leave me a comment on any post and I will get back to you.
Thanks for reading.
