Self-efficacy refers to your beliefs about your ability to carry out the tasks needed to achieve your goals. With self-efficacy, you feel you have the ability and determination to overcome obstacles and take control of your situation. For example, if you need to give a high-stakes presentation and you believe you are capable of preparing and delivering it even though it may be difficult or stressful, you probably have high self-efficacy about this task.
