BUS 610 Week 3 - Discussion 1 For this discussion, you will explain the dynamics of how self-esteem affects self- efficacy. Provide an example of an internal or external force that impacts your self- efficacy. Self-esteem and self-efficacy are two distinct concepts often used interchangeably. Self-esteem refers to the overall sense of self-worth or value of an individual, whereas self-efficacy refers to the belief of their ability to achieve specific tasks or goals. A person can have high self-esteem by experiencing low self-efficacy in a specific area or vice versa. Self-esteem can affect self-efficacy in different ways, for instance, a person with low self-esteem may be less likely to believe in their ability achieve tasks and goals, which can lead to reduced self-efficacy (Cherry, 2023) An internal force that can affect your self-efficacy is your beliefs regarding your abilities. If a person believe they can achieve a specific task or goal, they are more likely to have high self0efficacy. Conversely, if a person doubt their abilities, they may have lower self-efficacy (Cherry, 2023). Cherry, K. (2023). Self-efficacy and why believing in yourself matters.
