Self Reliance – the belief the God gives everything that we need to take the next step. What is it?

I am thankful to all those who said no. Because of them, I did it myself. ~ Albert Einstein

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

If we all exuded self reliance, what would our world be like?

What lies within the student who took a $6,500 course to become a Microsoft Certified System Engineer who was legally blind?

We must take full advantage of educational opportunities. 

Those who have the lowest level of skills, who refuse the required constant updating, will find themselves uncompetitive, under employed, and unfulfilled. 

If we all exuded self reliance, what would our world be like?

What lies inside the mom of a boy named Noah who spent day after day for months and months inside a Neonatal intensive care unit until her boy was healthy enough to come home.

We must confront and overcome the obstacles that we all must face.

Confronting our trials produces perseverance, and perseverance character, and character hope. And hope is a shinning beacon that lights our path during our darkest days.

If we all exuded self reliance, what would our world be like?

What lies inside the man who took personal responsibility for his actions by Sleeping in the boys room.

I’ve seen a lot of things in the bathroom. I’ve seen men peeing while making business deals on their cell phones. I’ve seen two VPs having a meeting. I’ve even seen men take their computers and spend hours in the bathroom doing their work. But never have I seen a man snoring so loudly that I thought the door would come off its hinges.

Self reliance means that you take personal responsibility for your own actions. You take personal responsibility and don’t blame others. You must work and produce results. Honorable work is great source of happiness, self-worth, prosperity, and security.

If we all exuded self reliance, what would our world be like?

What lies within the man whose raising three little kids – whose taken to court by his ex wife for a crime he did not commit.

You must stand for and defend the integrity of your own mind and the principles you believe to be honorable. You have to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.

Turn your anger in, and depression will follow. Turn your anger out, and wars will rage. Turn your anger up, and hope will shine.

Self reliance is born out of continually seeking education like the blind man did, overcoming the obstacles that we all must face like the mother did, taking personal responsibility for your own actions, and fighting for what you know to be right, like the father did.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. 

If we all exuded self reliance, what would our world be like?
