Being resourceful is more than just making use of the resources around you. If you need to accomplish goals and you consistently find unconventional ways to do that, then you should have realized that is a mindset. It’s a way of thinking that is innate in some but can be learned by others.
It all starts with being open-minded. Rather than being constrained by your circumstances, you should look at the things you can do. Even if you are surrounded by red tape, you can maneuver your way around. Use these boundaries as a way to push yourself. After all, obstacles are meant to be overcome. With that in mind, optimism surely plays a role in this mindset.
Keeping an open mind will allow you to see that everyone and everything around you is a resource. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you objectify the people around you or that you are opportunistic with ulterior motives. In fact, you will be looking at how you can learn from the things around you.
Being quick-minded has as much to do with your intelligence as it is your creativity. Having a unique perspective on the world will help you to adopt new uses for common items. A man couldn’t have ended up on the moon if we didn’t have a crazy idea and tried to make it happen. That’s not to say that you need a team of scientists to accomplish your goals, but you need to think outside of the box.
Some people look at artists and wonder what it takes to be born with creative talent. It is the same way they look at innovators. It’s when they accomplish something great. For lazy thinkers, it is much simpler to conclude that we all have our God-given talents and if you weren’t cherry-picked to do something great, then your life is average. Every well-known (or even obscure) innovator will always speak tirelessly about their hard work and dedication.
That’s the truth. Being resourceful is a skill and not thought of as a talent in its own right. Sure, that is a better descriptor, but it comes from the willingness to try and try again. It’s not something you can go to school to be taught, but it is something you can reinforce. The best lessons in life are the ones we take in from experience — they are the ones we take in from being aware of our realities and knowing clearly how we want to change these realities.

Creating something generic is not something any aspires to achieve. The pursuit of ingenuity does not start with waiting for inspiration.Read More
