When the desire that grows in a person is balanced with will and ability, self-confidence grows, especially when someone gets motivation and support from seeing that he can develop more than he thinks. In entrepreneurship, it is necessary to have self-confidence; self-confidence will provide the motivation needed for the business to thrive. Without a sense of self-confidence, every effort made will be in vain. This study reveals one determining factor for entrepreneurial success is the presence of self-confidence, and self-confidence can be categorized into several variables, including feelings, beliefs, perceptions, and expectations. Many successful efforts are due to a sense of optimism, where every failure is an opportunity to get up and move forward. Without a definition of confidence success in entrepreneurship is impossible. The results show that there is a positive and significant effect of entrepreneurship self-efficacy on entrepreneurial intentions.
