I don’t know but I noticed especially now that Self-Reliance is something that is no longer taught or revered. It’s like we have become so conditioned to depend on others and on things that we just can’t see how to do it on our own.
Every animal in this planet is Self-Reliant in one form or another. They learn to find food, breed, fight and at times kill so that they can live another day. This self-reliance is something that is bred and conditioned into every species.
When animals are first born some depend on others for their survival until they are strong enough to go out or are forced out on their own.
Unfortunately, we have forgotten to teach our children about self reliance. It’s like many young people including older adults are totally useless on their own. It’s like we are like little kids but in adult bodies.
We bitch and moan how unfair life is not or even knowing that we are the only ones that can change it. Yet we depend on strangers to help us with everything.
No wonder why there are so few Entrepreneurs out in society today. Most just want to be average and follow a schedule laid out for them. To be an Entrepreneur requires lots of Self Reliance among other things.
It takes a pair of Cohones to go out and make your own path in the world. To make our own path requires self reliance in ones self to know that even if I go make my own way there is still a huge chance that I might fail and yet some people go and make their own way.
Which is why Entrepreneurs are a special group of people.
And yet this brings me to you fellow Lyft Driver! You have the self reliance to go out there everyday and are able to get paid. Most people would just be scared in picking up strangers and taking them to their destination for money.
Self reliant people know that there are other ways to make money other than the one laid out by Society. Why do you think they don’t teach you to be self reliant or even on how the world works? Because doing that will open your mind and then help you become self reliant.
We all want to be the Brave Lion! In reality many of us are more like the scared Lion.
In order to be a great Lyft driver or even a great person who is living a life of progress is a person who has a strong self reliance belief in themselves.
Also no one is 100% self reliant and at times we will need the help of others and that’s ok. My thing is if you are constantly depending on others to do for you that’s is where I have a problem.
If you want to go somewhere in life you have to look inside of yourself and make it happen.
No one knows what you want except you!
