1. Introduction

There is no shortage of resources on the internet. There are literally thousands of books, blogs and websites on almost any topic imaginable. Some of them are more valuable than others, but none of them are free. So what does it take to be resourceful? Let’s start by discussing the different ways in which you can become resourceful. You can learn a new skill, read a book or watch a video, you can make an extra income or solve a problem that has plagued someone else for years – or you can be resourceful by being inventive and thinking outside the box. In this article I will discuss four specific types of resourcefulness: creative thinking, problem solving, creativity-based learning and embracing others’ ideas.

2. Definition of Resourcefulness

As noted in my previous post on creativity, I would argue that it is not only possible, but necessary to be resourceful. If we don’t do so, our capacity for creativity will be significantly diminished (even if we excel at other things).Being resourceful does not mean “beating” an obstacle; it means “using your resources” — whatever they are — to get what you want. It could be that your resourcefulness is rooted in your personality and talent; it might even require a change in your personality (or at least a new way of thinking about how you think and how you work).It could also be that the problem is too difficult for you to overcome. If the solution is too difficult for you, there are two ways you can deal with this: either accept it and move on; or find a way to circumvent the problem by using another resourceful person.

3. Importance of Resourcefulness in Today’s World

I’ve been thinking a lot about resourcefulness lately — specifically, the idea that resourcefulness is an important character trait for entrepreneurs. The reason is that resourcefulness allows you to focus on what matters most: your product, your team, your mission and your customers. By focusing on these key things, you get the right results. That’s why it’s so important to be resourceful in everything you do. The only way to do that is to focus on the resources you have at hand and then harness them to help achieve your goals. After all, if nothing else, people will appreciate the fact that their actions have been motivated by a desire to succeed and a strong belief in themselves. The above is just one example of how I think about resourcefulness in entrepreneurship — there are dozens of others. But I think it is an important part of being successful in anything you do, regardless of whether it involves making money or not (though I am certainly more skeptical about how much of this applies).

4. Characteristics of Resourceful People

As a new company, you probably don’t know any resourceful people, and that’s okay. If your business is just getting started, your team is likely to be less experienced and less familiar with the resources that are available. When you have a larger team of resourceful people on your team, you should pay special attention to their personalities. You want people who have the skills necessary to succeed in whatever it is they do; but you also want them to be resourceful in what they do. The best way to look for resourcefulness is through personality traits — which describe the way someone thinks and acts and how they handle themselves in life. The most common personality types are extroverted (which means they are outgoing), conscientious (which means they take pride in doing well & giving their best), agreeable (which means they are pleasant) and intuitive (which means they like to work with others).

5. Examples and Stories of Resourceful People

There are many stories of resourceful people in the world. The most famous one is perhaps that of Martin Luther King Jr. His speech, “I Have a Dream,” was delivered in front of a large audience and has since been regarded as one of the most influential speeches in American history. The story is told that after recovering from an accident as a child, he was sent to a special school for children with physical handicaps who could not attend regular public school. While there he learned to read, write and do basic math using a mechanical device called a slide rule (which would become his trademark). King went on to give arguably the most famous speech ever given in United States (even though it was delivered at the Lincoln Memorial on Washington D.C.). At the beginning he stated that he wanted to talk about “the dream” which he described as “a dream dedicated to the proposition that all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics—everyone can get ahead in this country if they work for it.” He then went on to explain what this meant: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. “What this means can be very difficult for people outside America to grasp (and indeed it took me several years before I understood what King was talking about). It seems clear enough from reading King’s words alone: there are no positive traits we should aspire to possess; really you should simply strive for your strongest traits because doing so is what will get you ahead (and being courageous is part of being resourceful). But according to King it didn’t matter whether we had English or Spanish heritage or could speak American English or French; one thing would count: being brave! Being brave isn’t just something we do when facing danger; it’s also something we do when faced with new challenges and opportunities like becoming leaders across generations.

6. Conclusion

You are resourceful. You have the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in whatever you set out to do. The secret of successful people is that they are resourceful enough to overcome any obstacles life throws at them. But we all know how hard it is to put an idea into action, right? However, there is one thing about which we’re sure: if you have had plenty of practice at this stuff, it will come naturally when you turn your attention to funding your startup — something that typically takes years of full-time work by many experts (and plenty of trial and error).

    It´s interesting how through history we can found important personalities that gaves us examples of their own resourcefulness, something that caught my attention went the famous speech of Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. how with clever resourcefulness could introduced his speech and not only that if not that He could visualize his four little girl living in a country that won´t judged their by their skin color if not by the content of their own character, and in his dream he included to black men and white men, jews, protestans, catholic, etc. In conclusion I strongly believe that the resourceful character trait play an important role even though in our daily basis because usually not only as enptreprenours, if not as professionals we have to face trials and obstacles in our way and it´s there, where the resourcefulness take action. .
    Thank you so much
