What’s keeping you from learning new things and embracing the abundance mentality, so that you can earn the title of a resourceful individual?

Monday Morning Motivation – Resourceful

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss "resourceful."

Hopefully, the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week. Please feel free to forward the newsletter along to others who you think would benefit from the content.


There are a lot worse things to be called than resourceful!

Being referred to as resourceful is one of the nicest compliments that you can receive. Let’s break it down:

  • Resource – A large stock or supply of something of value
  • Full – Having as much as possible

So, the question is this: how do you go about gaining the title of a resourceful individual?

It’s easy:

  • Never stop learning (e.g., always be looking for resources).
  • Embrace the abundance mentality (e.g., believe that there is always more than enough to go around).

"Resourceful" is one of the few words that we can use to describe someone where breaking it down results in a clear picture of both:

  • What defines a person in this manner
  • What is necessary to become a person defined in this manner

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • What’s keeping you from learning new things and embracing the abundance mentality, so that you can earn the title of a resourceful individual?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning 

Have a great week!
