What are my personal resources?

Psychological capital (also known as personal resources) refers to a person's internal capacity for self-efficacy, hope, optimism, and resilience. They provide a distinct and significant, yet neglected, source of competitive advantage for enterprises. Research has shown that high levels of psychological capital contribute to the success of organizations.

My research group has proposed a model of organizational commitment that distinguishes between two types of commitment: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic commitment is driven by the satisfaction of needing and wanting to remain in an organization, whereas extrinsic commitment is motivated primarily by external factors such as salary and benefits. We have found that both intrinsic and extrinsic forms of commitment are associated with positive outcomes such as higher productivity, lower turnover rates, and enhanced job satisfaction. However, only individuals who are intrinsically committed to their employers will make meaningful contributions to the organization's success over time.

Intrinsically committed employees are more likely to go above and beyond the call of duty, which in turn creates a culture of engagement that further enhances their psychological capital.

Extrinsically committed employees are satisfied with their jobs but do not feel a strong sense of attachment to their employer. Therefore, they will receive low ratings on measures of psychological capital if they are asked to describe their feelings about their employment situation.

What are examples of personal resources?

Personal resources can include (but are not limited to) time, energy, attention, willpower, money, mood, presence, connection, support, spoons, and other items. They can also include skills, experiences, knowledge, connections, and objects that provide help in achieving goals.

Examples of personal resources include: my time, which allows me to work on projects; my will power, which helps me resist eating cookies even though I know I shouldn't; my attitude, which helps me deal with negative situations; and my friends, who always help me out when I need them.

Personal resources can be used up, lost, or depleted. For example, if you use up your will power trying to stop eating cookies, then you have lost a resource. If someone else's attitude helps you deal with a negative situation, then they have supplied you with a resource. Finally, if you use up all your resources and fail to achieve a goal, then you have depleted a resource.

It is important to note that resources are never completely gone. Even if you lose a game of rock-paper-scissors, you still have three more matches to play. Even if you use up all your energy at one point in time, you will still have energy later on.

What is self capacity?

Self-capabilities are thought to develop in the context of positive parent-child attachment experiences and refer to an individual's ability to do three things: (1) maintain a sense of personal identity and self-awareness across various experiences; (2) tolerate and control strong negative emotions... (3) manage interpersonal relationships.

Children who have secure attachments with their parents will have developed self-capacities that allow them to cope with stressful situations, such as moving to a new home or school. These children will be able to remain stable and consistent despite changes in their environment. They will also be able to manage their own feelings and communicate needs effectively to others.

Parents who have secure attachments with their children will try to provide consistency and stability in their child's life by not changing their behavior too often or making big shifts in their lifestyle choices. They will also help their children learn how to deal with change by explaining what is happening and helping them understand why changes were necessary.

Securely attached children will respond to these behaviors from their parents by becoming more stable themselves. They will begin to show signs of self-capacity development if they are able to remain stable during times of change and if they are able to communicate their needs to their parents.

These are just some examples of self-capacities.

What’s the difference between personal branding and self-help?

While some self-help approaches emphasize self-improvement, personal branding describes success as a type of self-packaging. Your personal brand is how you present yourself to the world. You want your followers to notice your one-of-a-kind blend of abilities, expertise, and personality. Your brand should make others want to know you and connect with you.

Self-help focuses on yourself in a way that will help you become better. Personal branding is about helping others by presenting yourself in a unique way. It's about being useful or beneficial to others at the same time that you're promoting yourself.

For example, if you are an expert on Google algorithms, then using that knowledge to improve your client's websites would be helpful. However, writing a book about your expertise and marketing it to companies that need help with their Google rankings -- this uses your talent and expertise to promote yourself in a unique way.

The bottom line is that self-help involves improving yourself while personal branding involves helping others by presenting yourself in a unique way.
