Get what you expect. Here's how.
Is it really that simple? Yes and no, but mostly, yes. It's all about creating a positive mindset, which for some, is admittedly more difficult than it is for others, but can be done.
Pygmalion Effect: The high expectations a person of influence has of us results in higher expectations of ourselves, and thus better performance outcomes.
Golem Effect: (The opposite of the Pygmalion Effect.) The low expectations a person of influence has of us results in lower expectations of ourselves, and thus poor performance outcomes.
Galatea Effect: Our own high or low expectations of ourselves without regard to ouside influences.
Thoughts are like arrows: once released, they strike their mark. Guard them well or one day you may be your own target.
