Quite simply, this is true because relying on others to manage our learning and career progression means that neither will occur.  Certainly, learning can never be "given" to us by others.  We must rely on our own neurons and the connections between them to learn anything.  There are instances in which we rely for a while on others for career advancement, for example, through a family or friendship connection to get a job. However, unless we rely upon ourselves to perform ably, few workplaces will tolerate us for very long. I find it difficult to conceive of any situation in life in which we can enjoy success without self-reliance skills.  Unless one has a severe disability, in which case one cannot always rely upon oneself, people will care for us, but they will not and should not do what we need to do for ourselves.
