Tips on being self-sufficient and independent:
-Be responsible and take ownership of your life. Don’t wait for someone else to take care of things or provide for you.
-Work hard. Work harder than others and be smart about where you’re headed. Make decisions based on where you want to be, not where you currently are.
-Don’t make excuses for why you are “stuck” somewhere. Excuses are boring and your struggles are not any more than anybody elses. Besides, you’re the only one who cares where/how you end up so you’re only making excuses to yourself.
-Figure out what YOU value, not what’s important to others, and focus on that. If being creative is #1 importance to you, then don’t accept a desk job you know you’ll hate. At the same time, if being financially secure is #1 to you, then don’t let others make you feel bad for working a job you don’t care about when it pays well. It’s your life and you need to do what’s best for you.

I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.
