To find yourself think for yourself
A necessary quality about finding your purpose is that if you are self-reliant then you don’t need to depend on anyone. A man who relies upon himself enjoys glorious independence, for he has not to wait to be helped by others.
Being self-reliant allows you to feel that life is never dull and dispirited. Life should be a great adventure full of interest and excitement. Through your own resources you accept all challenges of life, and you develop new virtues and qualities and you find yourself. Thinking for yourself and using your own initiative leads to confidence of finding a way out of difficulties, which is an important component to finding yourself.
