In this video, I show you how to increase confidence in sports. Specifically, I explain the 4 mechanisms described by Albert Bandura by which we can increase self-efficacy: the belief in our own capabilities. Once you understand these 4 mechanisms, you can begin to use different strategies to build confidence.
Confidence is referred to as self-efficacy in the sports psychology literature, and it is considered to be the most important psychological state that affects performance. In does not matter which sport you play (whether it be soccer, basketball, football, etc) - these mechanisms apply in all sports.
