I think this statement requires modification and elaboration to read 
"having a qualified (or competent) posek of one's own."

Rav Shimon Schwab, ZT"L, says that a Torah scholar must have secular 
knowledge.  See 
Those  beginning on page 13.

Also,  I doubt that one will find any rov who is competent to pasken 
ALL sheilos.  At times,  very specialized knowledge is required that 
most rabbonim do not have.
