In this episode of the 2A Warrior Podcast, Ryan talks about the number one thing holding people back from achieving their goals and being successful: a lack of resourcefulness. Ryan shares a story of Dee, a woman he met while working in inner city ministry in Tampa. Dee had a dream of going to nursing school but believed that her lack of resources was holding her back. A volunteer named Brenda offered to pay for Dee's college tuition, but Dee didn't follow through because she didn't have a quarter to make a phone call to the college. Ryan uses Dee's story to illustrate how a lack of resourcefulness can hold people back from achieving their goals and encourages listeners to develop their resourcefulness.
Here are five key takeaways from the episode:
Resourcefulness is more important than resources: Many people believe that a lack of resources is what holds them back from achieving their goals. But in reality, a lack of resourcefulness is often the real obstacle. If you can learn to be resourceful, you can overcome almost any obstacle.
Inner city ministry can teach valuable lessons: Ryan met Dee while doing inner city ministry in Tampa. This experience taught him the importance of resourcefulness and the power of helping others.
Overcoming obstacles is possible: Dee's story is a reminder that even when obstacles seem insurmountable, there is always a way forward. It just requires resourcefulness and persistence.
Small obstacles can have a big impact: In Dee's case, a simple lack of a quarter prevented her from taking advantage of a life-changing opportunity. This illustrates how even small obstacles can have a big impact on our lives.
Resourcefulness is a skill that can be developed: Like any skill, resourcefulness can be developed and improved over time. By adopting a resourceful mindset and seeking out new solutions, you can overcome even the most challenging obstacles.
Overall, this episode of the 2A Warrior Podcast is a reminder that success is not just about having resources but about being resourceful. By developing your resourcefulness, you can overcome even the most challenging obstacles and achieve your goals.
