Posted By on June 21, 2019



believe week welcome back I'm your host Scott Busse okay we're in the fourth day of belief week so the weekend for me is approaching it's always a good time working hard during the day work day as you are – okay let's get right to it belief week we're actually day 11 and today is what's the title let's get the title it is self-efficacy okay self-efficacy is it's not very well known that term I think it's well known in academic scientist social psychology psychology all of those uh those fields of study for sure you'll probably know it as confidence and resiliency grit all of those things kind of spun together so also very commonly known as belief in yourself so I have a question can confidence be taught well if you've been attention through the last couple days you'll remember that we went over a couple exercises of how you can choose to be confident but also how you can learn to be confident and that is a lot about what we're going to talk about today and we will go over a specific article so sorry I'm gonna be clicking around we've linked an article that I thought was pretty good and succinct and gets right to the point of the title is how to increase your self-efficacy and it really makes some really cool points central to the the reading is a psychologist named Albert bandura and he came up with a really good theory based on self-efficacy and his definition is the belief in one's capabilities to organize and execute the courses of action required to manage prospective situations it's fancy talk but it's all related to your belief in being able to start do and complete a task basically okay so this article goes through four different ways to increase your self-efficacy and that's what we'll go through today the first one being mastery or how often you do the same task over and over and over it's related to the time that you put towards this specific we'll call it a task it's more than a hobby it is a like a like an action the more what this is saying the more that you do it the more you are honing your skills your ability your the repetitive nature allows you to develop confidence in this specific task so mastery of a skill is a very very important topic and I think one of the main reasons why it's not celebrated as much anymore is it's pretty correlated to the fast-paced nature of today's culture and the art of being a skilled craftsman or you know spending a lot of time on one specific task it's just not celebrated as much as it used to be so don't forget that you still can do this okay the second source is through what they able is modeling and that is you you watching somebody else and taking note of how they do it and learning from from the way that they do it I guess they're showing you the possibility of being able to do the certain task so this modeling behavior is really really important and it it can be observed every day and what it does is it gives you a little bit of a belief that you too can do this I just had a thought the the first thing that came to my mind was the four-minute mile it was it was actually broken as a as a time maybe fifty years ago I think so by a Kansas guy actually the mile was it was never conceived never fathomed that anybody could run a mile that fast and this guy named roger bannister actually broke the four-minute model and the funny thing about that was once he did it boom boom boom boom boom like four to five other people did it within within the next year so we had gone the entire history of mankind never being able to run that fast of a mile race this guy does it and then all of a sudden four to five more people do it right after that so it was that initial breaking through of that that mindset that allowed these people to model that behavior and see the possibility okay the third source would be what she being the article writer she labels social persuasion and this is what others tell you about your ability so how about that within our 30-day challenge we're gonna talk about the influence of other people and having key people in your life speak vision or speak possibility into you and how that's key you know like you see yourself one way and you know in a lot of ways that is one vantage point and one limitation but having people in your life who see you in a different way that that shows you so much possibility and helps to build your confidence so that is a third way for you to build that efficacy the fourth way is is physiological factors like your your emotional state your your health your wellness and how you feel if you are out of whack with your your health lifestyles let's say you're not sleeping the way you need to be or you're you're living a very stressed life very chaotic messy life chances are that you're not gonna feel very good about taking on a new task or just yourself in general so it's kind of a no-brainer but that is a very important tangible the better you feel the better you're going to be able to to react or to take on and have confidence in yourself so yeah those are the four ways to develop ethicacy within yourself a lot of them are again no-brainers not that difficult to to begin to cultivate actually so it's a really cool article so want you to read through it and comment about it and yeah see see what what sticks and possibly what you can begin to implement into your life all right here we go go about your day give it some thought and we will be back tomorrow see ya
