Default Another Bearded Dragon Question

I've had my beardie a little less than a year. I got him from a breeder in Illinois (traded my corn snake for him, I just love bearded dragons so much!). He was an adult when I got him. Very healthy, alert, and friendly.
Here's the question:
Kaius (that's his name ) only eats out of my hand. I've left food in his dish before, but he has never touched it. I let it sit for 3 days before I became worried and gave in to hand feeding again. I don't mind hand feeding him, I actually like it. I'm just wondering if this is normal...
And there may come a time when I'm gone and he'll have to eat by himself. Is there anything I can do to encourage him to eat by himself?
