BELIEVE IN YOURSELF


Self efficacy is the belief in one’s capabilities to organize and execute the sources of action required to manage prospective situations. If efficacy beliefs always reflected only what people can do routinely they would rarely fall but they would not set aspirations beyond their immediate reach nor mount the extra effort needed to surpass their ordinary performances. People who regard themselves as highly efficacious act, think, and feel differently from those who perceive themselves as inefficacious. They produce their own future, rather than simply foretell it.

I do believe and have confidence in myself. If you have confidence, you feel you can do things better.

The main reason people have trouble identifying or determining who or what they should be is because they do not start with HAVE.

Building confidence is not a easy thing to do especially when you are always faced with uncertainties in life.

Identifying the best personality for you to assume is another factor affecting confidence. Different circumstances require different attitudes.

Yes, it is a very meaningful song. We always sing it on our Thursday gathering.

If you believe in yourself, if you believe there's someone who walks in life with you....la la la la la la!!!

Now I remember the song of Julie Andrews, I Have Confidence In Me. What will this day be like, I wonder.... what will my future be... Yes, kailangan talaga natin ang kumpyansa sa sarili. If we don't have that confidence, we'll always be at the losing end.
