Demonstrating Self-Reliance Increases My Confidence

Life is a fascinating mix of exhilaration, joy, and fear of the unknown. I am sometimes unsure of what is around the next corner. So, I realize I must strive each day to depend more on myself. 

Life requires me to be self-reliant. To me, being self-reliant means that I can stand alone and do what I need to do. I plot my own direction.

I know I can do anything on my own. 

It brings me comfort to know that I am okay regardless of what happens. My self-sufficiency empowers me to do whatever I believe is right or best for each situation.

I determine my own destiny. 

When I encounter a rough patch, I give myself time to consider my options. I ask things like, “How do I want to handle this situation?” and “Which option can bring me the most positive result?”

Ultimately, I know I can prevail because of my self-reliance. 

Sometimes, being self-reliant means knowing who to go to for help. I learn from the experience of others who are more knowledgeable in whatever I am pursuing. Then, my own knowledge and wisdom increases, building my self-reliance and confidence even more.

Today, my capacity to handle things on my own is at its highest because of my self-reliance. My goal is to show the world that I can rely on myself to accomplish my dreams.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Who comes to mind when I think of self-reliance? Can I pattern my behavior after them?
  2. Do I determine my own direction in life and go after what I want?
  3. When the going gets tough, how can I demonstrate self-reliance?
