YOU ARE INNATELY RESOURCEFUL, according to Coaches Training Institute, where I was trained as a coach.
What does this mean? That you have deep wisdom which will tell you the truth and keep you on your path. It means that you can get the job done – that you can figure out how to get where you need to go, and to do what you need to do. It does NOT mean that you are completely self-sufficient. You still need to ask others for help. But you can figure out who to ask and what you need (or ask people to help you figure out what you need and who to ask. You’re still being resourceful and moving forward).
Being resourceful means that you already have the resources you need in order to grow to be who you are called to be. This is both good news and bad news. The “bad” news” is that you can no longer tell yourself that you don’t have the resources to do something or be something.
Some people want to see the ultimate destination and a detailed map of each stop when they start on a journey. But being resourceful means you don’t really need the detail. As long as you know where you are going, in general terms, you trust that you’ll have the resources you need along the way. All you really need to see is the first step, after which the next step will unfold, then the next step, then the next step… And in the end, I’ve usually been amazed at where I’ve finally arrived – it’s usually been different, and much better, than I initially conceived.
How will you act when you KNOW that you that you are resourceful – that you have everything you need already? And what’s stopping you from acting that way right now?
