To be wholly self-sufficient means to be able to live on your own without any external assistance. It would mean that you provide your own energy, grow your own food, and cover all of your needs without relying on society to help you. Unless you are literally living on your own in the middle of nowhere, it is quite impractical and, for most people, undesirable to be wholly self-sufficient.
However, there are many practical benefits to learning how to be self-sufficient. For example, if you decide to grow your own fruit and vegetable garden, you can cut down on grocery costs. If you have a large enough garden, perhaps you don’t have to buy fruits and vegetables anymore. Another way is to install solar panels on your roof to save on electricity bills. You could even start a homestead and raise animals yourself. By learning to be more self-sufficient, you can be frugal, save a lot of money, and live simply.
