How we can build self-efficacy by Albert Bandura

Selfefficacy is a person’s belief in his or her ability to succeed in a particular situation.

Four ways we can build self-efficacy

1. Mastery Experience. In other words, PAST SUCCESS. Small and big wins from the past are GREAT ways to boost your current confidence. Create those wins, feast on them as you build your self-image as someone who succeeds (“That’s like me!!), and brings those past mastery experiences to mind when you’re facing current challenges.

2. Vicarious Learning. In other words, seeing someone else achieve the success YOU would like to achieve. The basic idea here: If they can do it, YOU can do it. KNOW that. DO NOT get envious of their success. Celebrate it. And say, “If they can do it, I can do it.”

3. Social Persuasion. In other words, someone tells you that you can achieve success. Like a coach. Or supportive parent or friend. “YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!” You can also persuade yourself through positive self-talk and an antifragile, confident mindset. And, remember to be the one persuading others of their potential!

4. Physiology. In other words, if you want to succeed, ACT like a successful person. Walk, talk, breathe, and carry yourself as if you’ve already achieved that which you aspire to achieve. Presence-101 style. Strike a power pose and go rock it
