To all successful Digital Nomads out there, how'd you do it?

I’ve been at this digital nomad thing for close to a year now, and have not reached any form of substantial success where I can achieve the freedom and location independence I was hoping for. Its just one of those days where the prospects of freedom seem to be fading and the frustrations are definitely taking its toll. I’ve tried all kinds of strategies but still have not had any definitive success as of yet. I just wanna know, to those successful digital nomads out there, how’d you do it?
