Recently, I have been keep thinking of the word ‘self-efficacy’, something I studied in University. Self-efficacy means the extent or strength of one’s belief in one’s own ability to complete tasks and reach goals.
People with a strong sense of efficacy are more likely to challenge themselves with difficult tasks and be intrinsically motivated.
While, people with low self-efficacy believe they cannot be successful and thus are less likely to make a concerted, extended effort and may consider challenging tasks as threats that are to be avoided.
I believe believing and having faith in yourself is very important, as most of the time, it is not your ability that is telling you that you can’t do the tasks, instead, it is you fooling yourself.

If you think you can do something then you can. If you think you can’t do something, then you won’t be able to.
