Most of us have no problems identifying goals we want to accomplish. It's putting these plans into action that is difficult.
Sometimes we lack discipline or motivation. However, there's another reason why you might struggle to make changes in your life - you have low self-efficacy.
What is self-efficacy? What are the main four sources of it? How can you develop more confidence in your abilities?
These are some of the questions I'll answer in this short book. The advice you're about to read is based both on scientific research and my personal experience. I will share fundamental knowledge that will help you build more confidence in your abilities and reach your goals.

It's a short book and I knew already some of the points discussed, but it's a useful short book.
That was the weakest point for me. I found the narrator terribly boring (sorry).
Some Good Advice, but Not Terribly Interesting...
Some good info in a very quick read, but there are better guides out there. I found a lot of the information here to be either extremely obvious ("don't give up") or dragged out and repeated too much.
I liked that he mentioned physiological effects of nervousness are interpreted differently by confident and anxious people.
Found the voice to be a bit droning and difficult to listen to...There were also a few instances in which he emphasized words strangely and I found this distracting.
Some of the better advice was included in the social aspects of confidence-building. Surround yourself with people that persevere in areas that would make you give up.
If I had a dollar for every time this books says "self efficacy".....
My roommate overheard around 10 minutes of this book and commented that he was annoyed by this as well.
