Self-reliance is important for everyone. Self reliance is the ability to deal with issues and take responsibility without leaning heavily on others.Whilst for many it may be quite daunting, the fact is that it can also be empowering to learn how to do this. As a life coach I help people to become more self-reliant and take their lives forward in the direction they want.
Assume responsibility for your actions.
One of the key aspects of self-reliance is taking responsibility for what you do and say. It is an important facet of self-reliance and one which will improve your confidence and self belief each time you feel you are standing on your own two feet.
Take control of your life
Taking control of your life may sound like an odd thing to say, but the fact is that many people simply amble their way through life with no real purpose or desire and then wonder why they have not achieved the things they wanted to. Taking control of your life means several things such as making your own decisions, and acting on them, taking care of yourself and setting realistic goals you want to achieve. As you take control you will feel empowered as you come to realize that you are master of your own destiny.
Ensure you know how to carry out the relevant responsibilities
Obviously taking control means that you need to ensure that you are able to carry out certain tasks If you don’t know how to do certain important tasks then you will need to learn. This is where many fail, due to not wanting to ask for help or advice and guidance. Don’t be afraid to ask – Wise people always ask advice when needed. Part of being responsible is, knowing when you need help and are prepared to ask for it.
Know which direction you want to go in
Goals or aims are necessary to provide a direction to aim for .This will motivate you to achieve your desires .Like a ship without a rudder, without goals you will not achieve the outcomes you wish for.
