Self-reliant means being confident in your own abilities and able to do things for yourself. Instead of looking for happiness from someone else, we have to realize it’s not out there. It’s within us. Happiness isn’t in the future, it’s not somewhere else. It’s available right inside us, right now, all the time.
Self-reliant Leadership is synonymous with knowing which questions to ask yourself and having the courage to answer them and act.
It is essential that you decide to believe in the value of who you are and what you have to offer. Once you make this decision the emotional centres of your brain release an emotional energy that motivates you to lead as if what you are doing is the most important thing in the world.
All organisations need people who can articulate a shared idea of why they exist, who they are and where they are going. There remains a continual need for leaders who are self-reliant and independent at their core.
Self-reliance is something you develop in stages as you get older, learn from experience, and become more and more independent.
Men and Women with solid levels of self-reliance and self-belief are emotional independent, which means they can formulate and clarify vision and values and leverage the talent of others to achieve their full potential.
Trust yourself, more than anyone else. You may be much more equipped to weather your problems alone than you ever fully realized.
Summing-up: Self-reliance —or working hard to “earn” your own success–is key to personal happiness. If you stop depending on others to get you through hard times, you start to find happiness by and through yourself.
