Practicing the art of self-efficacy


Self-efficacy is commonly defined as the belief in one’s capabilities to achieve a goal or an outcome. As a result of having self-efficacy, you can be assured your positive thoughts will be converted to positive action.

American futurist Joel Arthur Barker once said, “Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”

  • What do you dream about?
  • What do you worry about?
  • What brings you joy?

To make your dreams come true, it is going to take more than prayer, love and hope.

I would argue that it takes discernment, self-efficacy, action and support, among many things.

Kelli Stewart is a great model of self-efficacy.

As we close out the month of April, I pray this month was able to bring showers of discernment, grit, focus, and self-efficacy upon you.
