While you certainly should feel comfortable asking others for help when needed it is also important not to become a burden.
The more independent you are, the less you have to rely on others. This gives you the freedom to live.
The following tips can help move towards a more independent life.
Have emergency money on hand
As simple as this sounds, if you find yourself in an emergency that requires a good chunk of money, what will you do if you don’t have it? You will likely call up friends or family members. This puts you in a position of owing them. Set aside ten percent of your salary every pay period. This can be used to build up your emergency fund.
Always learn new skills.
If you don’t keep up with your skills, you will have to rely on others who are up-to-date with theirs. Most people don’t know everything there is to know. However, if you are on a constant learning path you will always be able to thrive.
If you truly want to become independent, consider starting a business.
Many people feel they can do better than the companies they work for. If you can make it happen for yourself, you will have the freedom to be your own boss.
For those who don’t want to start a new business, you can still take steps to increase your independence at work.
For instance, you should try to delegate several of your tasks. If you are not at a manager’s level, you may need to negotiate your position. For instance, you could teach someone a skill in exchange for him or her taking on some of your responsibilities.
Increase your network.
Attend a networking event at least once per quarter. You can arrange one yourself or you can attend one that is already scheduled. Once you develop your network, reach out to the network at least once per month, even if it’s just for a quick hello.
Stay out of trouble.
This seems obvious, but if you get arrested and have to spend time in jail, you lose your independence. Being incarcerated is difficult to shake even after you are released. People don’t believe this could ever happen to them. However, they start with small infractions, and as they get away with them, they increase the level. Sometimes, they find themselves in situations that are difficult to reverse until it’s too late.
