We absolutely believe in our slogan, and it's efficacy is supported
by tens of thousands of participants since 1994 whose lives dramatically
improved as a direct result of our proven-effective program.
Self-efficacy has been defined in a
variety of ways: As the belief that one is capable of performing in
a certain manner to attain certain goals, as a personís belief about
their capabilities to produce designated levels of performance that
exercise influence over events that affect their lives.
It is a belief that one has the capabilities
to execute the courses of actions required to manage prospective situations.
It has been described in other ways as the concept has evolved in
the literature and in society, as the sense of belief that oneís actions
have an effect on the environment; as a personís judgment of his/her
capabilities based on mastery criteria; a sense of a personís competence
within a specific framework, focusing on the personís assessment of
their abilities to perform specific tasks in relation to goals and
standards rather than in comparison with othersí capabilities.
Additionally, it builds on personal
past experiences of mastery. The idea of self-efficacy is one of the
center points in positive psychology; this branch of psychology focuses
on factors that create a meaning for individuals.
It is believed that our personalized
ideas of self-efficacy affect our social interactions in almost every
way. Understanding how to foster the development of self-efficacy
is a vitally important goal for positive psychology because it can
lead to living a more productive and happy life.
