Self-efficacy is your perception about your ability to do something. No matter what task is in front of us, we all have an idea of what our ability is to complete the task. If you have strong self-efficacy, you generally believe that you can master any challenge. Meanwhile, a student with weak self-efficacy typically believes that they will fail at a task and cannot rise to the challenge.
To reach our most difficult and ambitious academic goals, it is so important to maintain a strong self-efficacy. The belief in your ability leads to the improvement of that ability. Set-backs become experience as you engage in the learning process. Your confidence becomes unshakeable as you embrace the challenges in front of you and grow from courageous attempts at greatness. If your self-efficacy drops, so does your learning as you believe that you can't accomplish the goal or learn the ability that you are struggling with.
Here are four ways you can improve your self-efficacy and take control of your learning today!
Growth comes from experience. A lack of self-efficacy can take away your experience. If you believe you will fail, you are less likely to give your best effort which robs you of learning or growing. Commit to increasing your self-efficacy and believe the best in yourself. You deserve it!
