RESOURCEFULNESS:  Ingenuity and skill in dealing with new, unexpected situations

Using creativity and innovation to solve problems + seeing the opportunities in unexpected situations = resourcefulness

Resourceful people are positive and enthusiastic because limitations and unexpected situations do not hinder them.  They are not bound by unlimited resources nor favorable conditions; resourceful people are always searching for creative means in which to solve a problem or reach a goal.

Resourcefulness requires confidence, open-mindedness, and proactive persistence.  Resourceful people are ingenious, creative, and innovative.  They embrace limitations and unforeseen circumstances as opportunities in disguise.
