Your mind should be your best friend and ally. Great Mental Health and deployable Mental skills are 'the' Resources we need. They are, our Capital because they have economic value.
It's 'crazy' how the mind can continue to do all the things we do not want like, intrusive thoughts, fear, resentment, worry, anxiety, etc. Why does this happen? For some of us, we have become prisoners in our own minds, helplessly tied to uncomfortable memories, obsolete beliefs, and limiting thinking styles. What implications does this have for the family, society, and the workplace? How can we change limiting patterns and empower ourselves to thrive?
The world of work and life the way we know it has changed. We need to 'reskill' and 'upskill' our mental competencies so we can prosper in the new normal.
Skills/Capabilities and Resources now include:
Resilience, Self-efficacy, Self-regulation, Self-awareness
Relational agility, Self-motivation, Trust, Values, Experiences, Assumptions about the world and people, Self-esteem, Efficiency at learning, Beliefs, Flexibility, Optimism/hope, Memory, Empathy, Assertiveness (all cognitive and attitudinal).
These are all forms of 'capital' we all need to have to be able to thrive. This has implications for the workplace, for families for states, and for nations. Mental Capital affects family life, state branding, workplace profitability, the development of tourism in states and countries, innovation, and economic development for third world countries.
On TRUTH SERUM, we look at the different ways the mind can work for us, with us, or against us. We also get insights from guests on how Mental resources can be exploited to create wealth and achieve societal progress. We discuss this under the following themes:
1. The Availability or Deficit of Mental Capital in Nigeria and the Economic value of Mental Capital
2. Mental Capital as a workplace Asset
3. When Couples Collide: Mental Capital in the home
4. Baby Girl (gender-specific): Women and Mental Wealth Creation
