There’s good news for you! Psychological and behavioral research reveals a significant correlation between self-efficacy beliefs and the initiation and maintenance of health behaviors.
According to Albert Bandura,
Self-efficacy is the belief in one’s capabilities to organize and execute the courses of action required to manage prospective situations.
The belief that one can control stressful events is related to emotional well-being, successful coping, health behaviors, better performance on cognitive tasks, and good health. It has even been linked to a lower risk of mortality (Taylor, 2012).
What makes you great? What goal have you achieved? Is it a skill you have mastered?
How did you do it? Did you write a timetable? Enlist help? Reward yourself for accomplishments along the way?
Because if you can write a few bids, cut all of your hair off in one fell swoop, or even drag a gigantic trash can filled full of sand and rocks through a ton more sand…. You can do anything.
