We all need independence: independence to make our own decision, independence to make our own mistakes, and independence to discover our individual path. We must believe in ourselves, and learn from our mistakes, and our failures. Don’t let them discourage you, the best lessons learned, are learned through mistakes… you remember the lesson better! It takes courage to be independent, and make your own decision. You can feel a little bit anxious, or nervous to know and understand, that once a decision is made, it’s all on YOU! But this should inspire, and encourage you to be more creative, and follow your path to your goal. Think of creative ways to accomplish your mission, and to overcome your obstacles. In the work place, take independence to a different level, and practice autonomy. Use autonomy as often as you can, start small, and take chances. Your independent (and great decision) will be noticed, and you will be rewarded, with additional and increased autonomy. Increased autonomy and independence in a new position, or increased responsibilities in the same position, you will make a big impact with decisions made, and outcomes produced.
It takes courage to be independent, have independent thinking and make independent decisions, to shape your goals and your path. Take the initiative, and self-motivation, and make the decisions to achieve your goals. Take a chance, and take the leap… your goals are shaped by the decisions you make.
“You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
I would also like to take a moment to remember our forefathers and the sacrifices and decisions they made to grant us our Independence. And thank you to our troops, for their daily sacrifices, protecting our freedom and independence, a sincere and heart felt appreciation to them and their families.
God Bless America!
