Self-efficacy is the self-confidence you have in yourself to change your negative behaviors and be successful at making those changes in your daily life. A correlation was found between making positive behavior changes regarding your health and how you perceive yourself. Confidence affects decisions that you make, the effort that you put into goals, how you interpret barriers and how determined you are to succeed when faced with adversity. When you think about it, your confidence IN completing a goal might be just as or more important than really knowing HOW to complete the goal.
Behaviors and Feelings that ZAP Self-Confidence
• Negative Self-Talk
• Lack of Trust
There is SO much More to You
The fact is, there are many factors that determine our confidence level. In order to create meaningful changes in your life you first have to believe that the changes are possible. If you set in your mind that there is no resolution, the discomfort takes over and the excuses creep in causing the following:
• Rationalizations- “I really didn’t NEED to make those changes”
• Denial- “It’s really not THAT bad”
• Projection- “I am not really the problem, the STRESS makes me eat”
Once your mind goes on the defensive, you end up right where you started. As a result, your self-confidence remains low and again you feel defeated, hopeless and frustrated.
