Re: Research Initiative of the Week: The Effect of Self Efficacy and Verbal Persuasion on Performance
Great post and discussion!
It's amazing how our perception really does shape our individual realities. If I allow negative thoughts to form, building a perception that I cannot lift that weight, chances are I won't, or will heavily struggle.
On the other hand if I stay positive and change my perception of the task to one of success I am highly more likely to succeed.
Something that can truly be used through all aspects of our lives and in lifting as well.
