Resourcefulness – The Ultimate Resource

RESOURCEFULNESS is the ability “to deal well with new or difficult situations and to find solutions to problems“. – Merriam-Webster Dictionary


For many people, unemployment can trigger emotional and sometimes physical distress.

Rather than focusing on what you don’t have, use resourcefulness to re-frame a seemingly negative situation. Focus on how you can use what you do have to achieve your goals. Perhaps you could use your network, creativity, time or skills to help you make the transition to employment.

According to Tony Robbins, resources can be useful but resourcefulness is the ultimate resource.

Along with a different perspective, ingenuity and creativity can help you problem solve and develop the skill of resourcefulness.

Try asking yourself:

– What else can I try?

– What has worked for others?

– Who can help?

By exercising our ability to solve problems, we develop resiliency and are more accepting of change.
