English term or phrase: Shine By Yourself
Shine as in glow, give off light
By yourself - without the help of others (solus?)

I have been trying to get this translated for a motto or a slogan, to see how it looks in Latin.

Thanks!

Latin translation:ipse luceas
Explanation:
This would be one possibility; 'luceas ipse' would also be possible. Of course there are verbs other than lucere, which would mean the same, but I think this would be most well-known.
