An individual on the planet cannot have all the skills and resources to be successful because, if he did have them, he’d already be successful. However, it does not mean that the person is devoid of all skills and resources either. Everyone has their own set of innate abilities and these unique features are also the reason why we seek and achieve success.
Making due with what you have as a student while overcoming the challenges and limitations that lie ahead is being resourceful. In other words, a resourceful person will get things done by optimizing the abilities and resources that he already has. They don’t see a challenge and wonder if they can overcome it. They simply think about how to use what they have to overcome the impediment.
Being resourceful is like being the hero of a big-budget movie. It’s like being James Bond. No matter how bad the situations become, Mr. Bond always has a way to take advantage of the situation. Well, Mr. Bond isn’t exactly a medically sane fellow in the normal world, but if you get my drift, a resourceful person will never give up but instead find creative ways to solve problems. As Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
Students frequently experience storms, gales, and hail because life is not always easy.
