Data collection tools included three valid and reliable scales: Molavi’s subjective well-being, Baer’s mindfulness, and Schwarzer’s self- efficacy. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and regression analysis.                                
Results: Findings showed that there was a significant positive correlation between mindfulness, perceived self-efficacy and subjective well-being (sig=0/01). Regression analysis indicated that mindfulness 17/20% and perceived self-efficacy 27/00% predicting of it.                                                           
Conclusion: Increased mindfulness and perceived self-efficacy can be used to enhance cancer patients’ subjective well-being as well as to improve their life satisfaction.
