quote by Albert Bandura

What people think, believe, and feel affects how they behave. The natural and extrinsic effects of their actions, in turn, partly determine their thought patterns and affective reactions.

Restlessness Self Efficacy quotations

Self efficacy quote Maturity is learning to walk away from people and situation that threaten your p
Maturity is learning to walk away from people and situation that threaten your peace of mind, self respect, values, morals and self worth.

Self-belief does not necessarily ensure success, but self-disbelief assuredly spawns failure.

People not only gain understanding through reflection, they evaluate and alter their own thinking.

Self efficacy quote We are what we believe we are.
We are what we believe we are.

Such knowledge is probably gained in several ways.

One process undoubtedly operates through social comparison of success and failure experiences. Children repeatedly observe their own behavior and the attainments of others

Self-doubt creates the impetus for learning but hinders adept use of previously established skills


Once established, reputations do not easily change.

Self efficacy quote Success - See your goal; Understand the obstacles; Create a positive mental pict
Success - See your goal; Understand the obstacles; Create a positive mental picture; Clear your mind of self doubt; Embrace the challenge; Stay on track; Show the world you can do it!

When people are not aiming for anything in particular or when they cannot monitor their performance, there is little basis for translating perceived efficacy into appropriate magnitudes of effort

Ironically, it is the talented who have high aspirations, which are possible but exceedingly difficult to realize, who are especially vulnerable to self-dissatisfaction despite notable achievements.

Persons who have a strong sense of efficacy deploy their attention and effort to the demands of the situation and are spurred by obstacles to greater effort.

Self efficacy quote Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.

Perceived self-efficacy also shapes causal thinking.

In seeking solutions to difficult problems, those who perceived themselves as highly efficacious are inclined to attribute their failures to insufficient effort, whereas those of comparable skills but lower perceived self-efficacy ascribe their failures to deficient ability


In social cognitive theory, perceived self-efficacy results from diverse sources of information conveyed vicariously and through social evaluation, as well as through direct experience

People judge their capabilities partly by comparing their performances with those of others

Self efficacy quote Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure
Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, surrounded by assholes.

Even the self-assured will raise their perceived self-efficacy if models teach them better ways of doing things.

If self-efficacy is lacking, people tend to behave ineffectually, even though they know what to do.

The satisfactions people derive from what they do are determined to a large degree by their self-evaluative standards

Self efficacy quote If you want to improve you self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator.
If you want to improve you self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator.

Self-efficacy beliefs differ from outcome expectations, judgments of the likely consequence [that] behavior will produce.

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.

Success and failure are largely self-defined in terms of personal standards.

The higher the self-standards, the more likely will given attainments be viewed as failures, regardless of what others might think.

Self efficacy quote I lost myself trying to please everyone else. Now I'm losing everyone while I'm
I lost myself trying to please everyone else. Now I'm losing everyone while I'm finding myself.

The human condition is better improved by altering detrimental circumstances and personal perspectives than by trying to alter personal outlooks, while ignoring the very circumstances that serve to nourish them

Self-efficacy is the belief in one's capabilities to organize and execute the sources of action required to manage prospective situations.

Who you become is infinitely more important than what you do, or what you have.

People behave agentically, but they produce theories that afford people very little agency.

The performances of others are often selected as standards for self-improvement of abilities

Self efficacy quote Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where
Self-control is strength. Calmness is mastery. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn't shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Don't allow others to control the direction of your life. Don't allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.

The adequacy of performance attainments depends upon the personal standards against which they are judged


One cannot afford to be a realist.

How children learn to use diverse sources of efficacy information in developing a stable and accurate sense of personal efficacy is a matter of considerable interest

Self efficacy quote Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.

The effects of outcome expectancies on performance motivation are partly governed by self-beliefs of efficacy

Self efficacy quote Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.

Self-appraisals are influenced by evaluative reactions of others.

Agemates provide the most informative points of reference for comparative efficacy appraisal and verification. Children are, therefore, especially sensitive to their relative standing among the peers with whom they affiliate in activities that determine prestige and popularity

The evaluative habits developed in sibling interactions undoubtedly affect the salience and choice of comparative referents in self-ability evaluations in later life

Stringent standards of self-evaluation [can] make otherwise objective successes seem to be personal failures
