In a world where everything changes so quickly, we can become complacent which makes us not seek self improvement within ourselves. When we finish school and it is time for us to find a job to “become part of society”, we can have a tendency of not seeking any further self improvement. We are told that we need to find a job because we have to be able to provide for ourselves, which is important, but sometimes it comes at the expense of not wanting to have the life that one always dreams of.
Self sufficiency is important not only because it encourages to look for more opportunities but because it helps us evaluate ourselves to see what we are truly capable of. Today we have the capability to look for the careers that we always dreamed of because the world is not the same as it was 50 years ago. During the era of the baby boomers, they had to go to school, graduate college and get a job in order to be successful because they were taught that way. Now in today’s world, you can choose to either go to college and get a job like you normally would or you can seek other ventures, some people pursue a sports career if they have the talent for it or some choose to start their own business, and is all thanks to the internet. With the internet, we have some of the most advanced resources on the planet that made all possible the technology that we have including smartphones. With this technology people can choose to start an online which is greatly beneficial for them because they can spend more time with their children and family.
So how would you know if you have what it takes to start your own business even one from home? that is something you have to find out for yourself. There are a lot of resources you can use for guidance: books, attend webinars, go to live meeting seminars which is a great way to network with people with the same interests as you, here you can get ideas of how to improve on your already existing idea and how to improve it even further. People have to understand that when you’re starting a business is going to take time, you will try out different ideas and make mistakes along the way and that is part of the process, no one has ever come up with a great idea without learning from their mistakes. This process can take a lot of pain, but in order to succeed you have to be able to withstand the pain, and that pain can help build your character and approach in how you handle setbacks in your business.
Self sufficiency is important because it allows you to have full control over your life and decisions. You have to improve yourself and educate yourself everyday because it never stops. The day you stop learning, is the day that everyone is going to pass you by.
