4. Think Of Alternative Sources Of Income:

A Nigerian can be self-reliant by thinking of alternative ways to make money. Let me give an example that illustrates this; You are a man and all you do is depend solely  on your salary that the government pays you at the end of each month, let’s say government was not able to pay you for a particular month and you don’t have any other source of income. Does it mean you and your family would go hungry ? Wouldn’t you pay the bills ?

But when you had already thought of alternative sources of income, you are automatically going to escape a bad situation by being self-reliant executing the plan you had in mind of other ways to make money.

There are several businesses you could do to boost your income that would not affect you normal job. All you have to do is create a little time for it and some investment that wouldn’t cost you much.

Generally, what this point is trying to say is that thinking of alternative sources of income would surely make you to be self-reliant.

5. Understand Basic Things:

If you really want to be a self-reliant person in Nigeria, then you would have to learn and understand basic things.

You need to have a fair knowledge of many things that happen around you, even though you must have being specialized in one thing.

Let’s take a look at a situation where a man is an engineer and all he knows is about construction and the like, when he gets home, his wife cooks and he eats well (but he doesn’t know how to cook).

But there’s this weekend, where his wife travelled for a function and he was home and no food at home, does it mean that he would not eat the whole weekend, simply because he doesn’t know how to cook ?

That shows he lacks “self-reliance”. Your ability to do some certain things at some certain conditions makes you a self-reliant person.

When you have basic understanding of things that happen within Nigeria, you can know what to do and how to do it without asking or relying on people for help.

Self-reliance just builds you up and why you would wonder why people in cities in Nigeria like Lagos, Abuja, Calabar, Port Harcort and others are more successful than people living in villages where they grew up. It’s because when they go out to those cities they become self reliant and take full responsibilities of what they should do.

They think outside the box and come up with something reasonable compared to when they would be in their villages where they would depend on their normal farm for food, fetch water from their normal stream and sleep in their father’s house of which they dwelled for years.
