We tested two complementary models explaining the link between well-being and PI: (1) broaden-and-build theory and (2) self-regulation as limited resource approach. In line with current research on well-being, we differentiated between hedonic and eudaimonic well-being using life satisfaction and vigor as indicators. Hierarchical regression analyses showed that only vigor predicted both forms of PI. Our results support the self-regulation approach and indicate that eudaimonic well-being is the relevant affective well-being dimension for proactive behavior. © 2011 Baylor University.||Source Title:||Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/44593||ISSN:||10422587||DOI:||10.1111/j.1540-6520.2011.00490.x|
