Question and answer
Q: The belief in one’s power to accomplish tasks and affect outcomes is________. (Points : 5) a Self-Talk b Self-Efficacy c Self-Concept d Self-Esteem
A: One area that many people forget about when they start the search for a diet that they will stick with is what their current levels of self-efficacy are. If you do not have very high levels of self-efficacy, [ [ this can have a very large effect on the outcome of your dietary attempt, potentially even more than the actual effect of the diet itself! So what is self-efficacy? Self-efficacy can
be defined as your belief in your own ability to do whatever it is you set out to do. If you feel that regardless of how hard you try, nothing ever seems to work in your favour, or that you will never be able to accomplish a set goal because you are simply 'not good enough', you have very low levels of self-efficacy and this will have a big influence on your motivational levels to start and stick with any diet or exercise program. There are four main factors that can affect the self-efficacy that you demonstrate, these being actual experience, vicarious experience, verbal persuasion, and the emotional and physiological states you find yourself in. Actual Experience The actual experience component of self-efficacy is just that - the actual experience you go through. If you consistently find yourself skipping workouts or digging into the second helping of food, you are going to find that your belief in your own ability to stick with a plan is largely going to go down. Likewise, if you are able to persevere in the face of a challenge, you'll likely find that as time progresses, it actually becomes easier to say 'no' to things that will harm your efforts because your belief in your capability to do so goes up. Vicarious Experience Next come the vicarious experiences you encounter. This is what you see others doing around you - for example, if a friend is dieting right along with you, however, is experiencing a much more rapid success rate than you are, this could lead to negative feelings in your own abilities to diet. It is important that you take these vicarious experiences in context. Remember that there are different circumstances for each situation and that you are doing the best with your own individual scenario. ] ]
