We all have excuses for when we don’t achieve our goals or perform at our best.

  • Not enough time!
  • Not enough money!
  • Not educated enough!
  • Not smart enough!
  • Not old/young enough!

These are all resource issues.

However, consistently successful people don’t worry about what they do or don’t have, they do their best with what is available to them.

That’s called resourcefulness.

They don’t sit around complaining about how few hours there are in a day, they make the most of the same 24 hours that everyone is given.

They don’t use a lack of money or education as an excuse, they do their very best with what they have.

They don’t wish for something that they don’t have and rationalise to themselves as to why they are in their current situation, they look around with eagerness for something that they can use right now, for someone they can speak to, for something they can learn, for anything that will take them closer to their goals.

If you’re struggling in life at the moment and have goals that seem as far away as ever, my suggestion today is don’t blame a lack of resources, but become more resourceful with what you have.

You’ll be amazed at what you can do with what you’ve already got.

Of course, this also means that you’ve got less excuses for not making progress, giving you more responsibility for your success (or lack thereof) whether you like it or not.

As scary and confronting as this can be for some people, it’s a good thing.

What have you got around you that you can be more resourceful with?
