Why Being Broke Can Make You A Hero.

When you have unlimited resources then focus doesn’t really matter.

If you have twice as much money and time to achieve a simple task then getting it right the first time isn’t as important as you might have otherwise thought.

The idea of “having enough resources” is just a logical interpretation of your current situation.

Most of the time, it’s an attitude issue. A priorities issue.

It might seem like you have to achieve success the first time around — or that you don’t have enough money or experience or manpower — but that just might be a perception illusion.

  • What if getting it right the first time means that you only achieve mediocrity? Is that good enough for you?
  • What if running out of money means you have to deliver a product that isn’t beautiful? Does beauty matter?

You subconsciously place all kinds of restrictions and inhibitions around what you need to do in order to be successful — magically hoping that by playing by the rules your  formula for success will yield better results than the last time.

There is no scarcity. No real scarcity for anything that matters.

As long as you can think and work you have everything that you need in order to be successful.  That’s why this discussion is really just a discussion about attitudes.

Logically, at some point you run out of time and money and opportunity. That’s just common sense.  But the truth is that you have more resources then you realize right now.  You have better resources.

And so, sometimes feeling like you’re running out of resources is a healthy thing. It reminds you that what you are doing today matters. It reminds you that the choices you make are important. And relevant. And that those choices ultimately determine how successful you become.

Its never been about the resources that you have.

At some point all of your resources are gone. Whether its life or health or money or friends, at some point, those things go away.

What you’re left with is the resource that you are. You. You are left with you.  And that’s not all together such a bad deal after all.  Because you can do with no one else can do.

You can care more. You can whine less. You can stand up when you’ve been knocked down. You can smile in spite of the pain. You can live, laugh, love, and lead all while feeling broke and sad and unprepared.

It’s not the resources you have but how resourceful you are that really matters. So act like it.
