An Independent Mindset




“We are so accustomed to the comforts of “I cannot”, “I do not want to” and “it is too difficult” that we forget to realize when we stop doing things for ourselves and expect others to dance around us, we are not achieving greatness. We have made ourselves weak.”
Pandora Poikilos.


I believe to be successful we need to take responsibility for our own life. With a healthy level of self reliance we do not need to look to others to sort, fix, mend or organise our lives for us. As individuals we are each responsible for the life we have and we alone have created.

Self reliance is like a muscle. We can use it or lose it. When we start to be self-reliant on a regular basis, we grow bigger, stronger and able to cope with what ever life demands are put upon us. Self reliance is the single universal quality that truly powerful individual share.

Trying to win people over, seeking approval and acceptance, trying to impress and craving praise all create weakness and destroy ones real power because it make one dependent on other people’s whims. We end up being a puppet, controlled by other’s mood and choices.

Are you dependent on the acceptance of others, do you follow like a sheep? Take a closer look to see if you are making your own decisions, living the life which is right for you.

Look within you today at improving your self reliance… independent mindset will lead to more confidence and inner peace in your life.

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach.”
Walt Whitman
