Brain Byte: The Power of Belief

“The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.” Richard M. DeVos (Billionaire entrepreneur)

Have you ever heard of the classroom mixup where the Gifted and Talented students were assigned to the teacher who expected the Low Performers and the Low Performers were assigned to the Gifted & Talented teacher?  Although the students were different, the expectations of the unsuspecting teachers remained the same. Those who were expected to perform well – did, even though they did not have a past record of high performance.  The students who were expected to perform at par to sub-par, did so, in spite of the fact that they had been performing remarkably prior to this switch.

Belief has a powerful impact on performance.  

Where does your belief need to change and where is it working at it’s best?

How are your beliefs impacting the performance of others?

Where are your beliefs holding you back?
