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,[1] as a person’s belief about their capabilities to produce designated levels of performance that exercise influence over events that affect their lives.[2] It is a belief that one has the capabilities to execute the courses of actions required to manage prospective situations.

Additionally, it builds on personal past experiences of mastery.[4] 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.
