Psychological Capital: Believing You Can Succeed
For the past few decades, psychologists have been studying a cluster of personal qualities and characteristics that have become known as psychological capital (see Figure 6.1). They are the inner resources you need to succeed at almost everything, and certainly professionally. They include believing you can succeed (having selfconfidence and optimism) and having the inner strength to see things through (having willpower and resilience). Each of these qualities is an important part of a person’s inner context for change. And each is capable of significantly affecting how likely someone is to succeed in changing their behavior.
