Albert Bandura (December 4, 1925 – July 26, 2021) was a prominent psychologist, known as the originator of social learning theory and the theory of self-efficacy.

Self-belief does not necessarily ensure success, but self-disbelief assuredly spawns failure.


  • If self-efficacy is lacking, people tend to behave ineffectually, even though they know what to do.
