The Law of Self-Efficacy

You have to believe in order to achieve!


Self-efficacy is the belief that you can do it!
Psychologist Albert Bandura has defined self-efficacy as 

one’s belief in one’s ability to succeed in specific situations.  


How confident are you?

If you scored high (mostly 3’s & 4’s) 

odds are you WILL succeed!


If you scored low (mostly 1’s & 2’s)

Identifying the barriers that are most likely going to trip you up 

will help you get past them. Take baby steps and you WILL succeed!


Think of self confidence as a bank…

Each time you keep a promise to yourself, 

your store of self confidence gets bigger, 

making it easier to keep the next promise to yourself!
