As of July 1st, 2023, it has been 160 years since the abolition of slavery in Suriname and the Caribbean islands when they were colonies of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. However, even today, millions of people worldwide are still trapped in various forms of slavery, often referred to as “Modern-Day Slavery.” In this context, fear has emerged as a powerful force that controls and restricts individuals, comparable to the way slavery did in the past. This fear can limit people’s freedom, hinder their pursuit of dreams, and impede their full potential for growth.
Despite recognizing the parallels between fear and slavery, many individuals unknowingly consent to this new form of enslavement in their lives, driven by fear itself. Fear of failure, fear of judgment, fear of uncertainty, fear of risks – these emotions hold us back from pursuing our dreams and achieving our goals.
The truth is life itself is inherently risky. From the moment we are born, we embark on a journey filled with risks. However, avoiding risks altogether does not guarantee security nor happiness. Taking risks is an integral part of life, just like getting married, having children, or driving a car. Embracing the inherent risks that come with pursuing our dreams is a part of living life to the fullest.
Often, people hesitate to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams, seeking security that may not exist. Our perceptions and thinking habits largely shape our lives, and poor thinking habits can keep us trapped in a state of stagnation.
The essence of life lies in living our dreams to the fullest and finding contentment in the choices we make. Emancipation Day serves as a reminder of the importance of breaking free from the chains of fear and embracing the risks that come with pursuing our aspirations.
