Hi guys, gals. I heard this great saying the other day, we don’t need more resources, we need to be more resourceful and it made me go, “Click, click, click, click, click, click.” All those… Like, literally, you know when you can feel the cogs in your brain going, “Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me.” So what do we mean by not needing to have more resources? We need to be more resourceful. Well, we’re in this consumer age, we buy more courses, we read more books, we consume more podcasts. It’s like we’re bingeing on information and technology and everything that’s all around us. But the problem with doing that is we actually forget what’s inside us or what’s kind of in our immediate vicinity.

So I’ll give you an example. Say you like shopping. Hands up, who likes shopping? Okay, I’ll admit that. So you hear about a new book. So the first thing you want to do is jump onto Amazon or Booktopia or Audible or somewhere and grab that book and consume, consume, consume, consume, consume. What if you actually thought about the message that was in that book, try to kind of work out some stuff for yourself and maybe go to the library and borrow it as a resource that’s actually already there. Okay? We can actually have that resource right at the end of our fingertips rather than buying a new book. Okay? So it’s one thing that we can do, automatically. Another thing you can automatically do, which means you’re being more resourceful instead of going for more resources is reach out to people you already know within industries, or that are good at certain things, instead of trying to find out more.

So you automatically want to go and find out everything about them, do what they do, buy what they buy. What would they wear? All that kind of stuff. Maybe they’ve got a course, you’ll grab that. Maybe they’ve got a day, you’ll go to that day. How about actually just looking at your wardrobe and working out how you can be more stylish, maybe taking a little bit of inspiration from them, but working with what you’ve got.

Now, this might… It’s a little bit greeny, actually. It’s a little bit environmental and please don’t, I mean, no disrespect from that. Because, I have been a mass consumerer. Consumerer? Is that a word? We’re going to make it a word. So I’m one of those people that I see something, if I can I’ll grab it. I’ll read it, I’ll listen to it. I’ll wear it.

I’ll do all those things. And I’m really starting to go, “You know what? I have enough.” I’ve even been writing in my journal every day for the last few days, “I am enough, I have enough, I am enough. I have enough.” Everything I need is kind of already inside me. Sure, I might need to grab a little snippet, a nugget, a tip, a tool or something from somewhere. But most of it’s there. You are the same. You are enough. You have all the goodness inside you to be the most extraordinary you. I promise. I promise. I promise. It’s just about pulling it out and not consuming more. We have a saying that, when you wake up in the morning, you should create before you consume. And I couldn’t agree with that any more. Every single day, you know my story, every single day, I write in my journal before I start getting on Facebook or YouTube or Twitter or Instagram or any of those kinds of things.

I write in my journal before I read a book. Okay? It’s because it’s what’s in you that’s coming out, that is the most powerful. I promise you. I absolutely promise you. So when you look at yourself over the next day, two days, whatever. The rest of your life, make it, the rest of your life. And actually before you go, “Okay, I need extra help or a knowledge or buy something or something from out there.” I want you to think about what you already have as your first point of call to being more resourceful. And then your second point of call to being more resourceful is to reach out to those closest around you, rather than the big fish, way over there. We’re in our little… Mwa, miss you too, [Kim 00:04:36]. I’m so sorry. I haven’t got to see your show yet. I’ll message you separately. And I’ve got to come to Melbourne.

Oh, God, I’m getting distracted, people! [Sellem 00:04:44], honestly, opera, go see it. Dramatic. Costumes. Awesome. Go. I’ll tag that in here. You know people within your industry or within your close circle of friends that you can reach out and ask for help with before you go, “Okay, I’ve got to meet the top person in my industry to find out more.” You don’t. I promise you, you don’t. So go, look first. What’s inside you? Secondly, what’s in your closest circle, whether that be friends, locality, like I mentioned, the library. What’s already on your bookshelf instead of buying another book. [Samantha Mary 00:00:05:31] pay attention! So I want you to look at that and see how you go. And remember be more resourceful! Be more resourceful! We’ll chant it. Be more resourceful! Have a great day, and I’ll see you all tomorrow. And I’m better by the way.
