Colonoscopy and Self-Efficacy – Isaac Levinsky

Self efficacy is the belief in one’s own ability to complete a task. When faced with a big challenge this week – another Colonoscopy/Endoscopy with a 4 liter prep of TrilLyte to drink in 3 hours… – I got through it by stating “I can handle this!” and “I know I will be okay!” 🙂 And I was, I did not focus on how bad the prep drink tasted, but instead on the fact that I will get through it and there is a reason to do this – I want to feel better!
