Key Ideas

Resourcefulness is a mindset

With resourcefulness, you are driven to find a way

An attitude of resourcefulness inspires out-of-the-box thinking, the generation of new ideas, and the ability to visualize all the possible ways to achieve what you desire. 

Open-minded

In being open-minded you find value in all kinds of different people, events and circumstances. 

You demonstrate a willingness to embrace different possibilities, opportunities, thoughts, views, suggestions and experiences outside of your normal repertoire. You push yourself to do what others believe to be impossible

Self-assured

This is the first step you take in getting things done.

When you are self-assured you like and trust yourself and your capacity to handle any problem placed in front of you. You know your value, appreciate your talents, work ethic and your ability to consistently follow through on your every word, deed and action.

Imaginative

Being imaginative is not always about creating something new, but also, with a little ingenuity making old things work better. 

Creative thoughts quickly move you from one idea to another and to another. One of those ideas may bear the fruits of a genius idea or solution.

Proactive

Avoid being a passive observer. Participate actively and always be deeply involved. Take the initiative to be a part of creating and finding solutions.

To be successful you cannot put your dreams on hold and wait for the right resources or people to show up. Get out there and create your own resources and networks. 

Persistent

Don't give up. If you stop trying before a problem is solved then you haven’t accomplished anything. If you don’t succeed at first, get up and try again.

Never see a setback as a failure, view it as practice. Practice makes perfect. Use fear and frustration to push you over the finish line of what you are seeking.

Hopeful

Train yourself to see the positive benefits in every situation.

There is a solution to every problem, even if that means a change in direction. As you cultivate a positive outlook you will see it is easier to come up with solutions. Fear and frustration block innovation.

Stress and motivation

Used effectively, stress can motivate us to accomplish more than we had imagined possible. Stress can jolt us to reach our potential. Without stress, we’d feel rudderless and without purpose.

Not all stress is bad for you
  • “Good stress”: which psychologists refer to as “eustress,” is the stress we feel when we’re excited about something.
  • Acute stress: when something surprises us or catches us off guard. Acute stress is the body’s response to ensure you react and take measures to deal with the unexpected situation. It has no lasting negative effects if we deal with it quickly and move on.
Build your resilience

Resilience is how we deal with stress effectively so we “bounce back” after a difficult time.

As we deal with issues that cause tension and strain, we learn to face adversity, deal with significant issues and overcome problems. We learn how to formulate realistic plans and carry them out.
