Something came to me so obviously connected with the NLP 101: You Cannot Not Communicate post that I regret not putting it up.
Have you ever heard of the Pygmalion effect? It refers to situations in which people perform better than other people simply because they are expected to do so.
In a study conducted by Robert Rosenthal, teachers of students were told that certain students were more gifted than others, when in fact, they were just students that were randomly selected. The amazing thing is, compared to an IQ test they took at the beginning of the year, and the same test at the end of the year, those randomly selected students showed more improvement than the other students!
Now here’s the important question: how are you looking at the people in your lives? If you could not not change the world, how would you affect people differently if you saw them as broken compared to if you saw them as whole?
What if you saw them as radiant beings of infinite possibilities and joy?
How do you see yourself?
Something to think about, isn’t it?
