Have you heard about the Pygmalion effect?

Last Update: January 21, 2016


Pygmalion or Rosenthal effect is a phenomenon whereby higher expectations lead to an increase in performance ( Based on Wikipedia). This has been a practice among schools.

The diagram above clearly shows that if a teacher has a strong belief that his student has a potential, he will give him positive expectations and encouragement which will allow the student to engage and show more interest in his learning. This will result in high student performance giving him better grades. A perfect example of how well we can achieve in Wealthy Affiliate(WA). If we will have a strong belief or determination that we will succeed with our online business, this will have a great influence among our WA Community giving each other inspiration to stay focus in every lessons and be determined to achieve our individual goals. Our self-fulfilling prophecies...




We need to inspire each other through Education, Engagement and Empowerment and focus on the four D's ( Discovery, Dream, Design and Destiny). See diagram below.

I use this with my clients for coaching and hypnosis. Come to think of it, I use it with me always ;-) Could be why GBSs "Pygmaion" and the musical version, "My Fair Lady" enthralled so many. Like your blog and its clean graphics. Larry

Thank you, Larry. I love to use graphics/illustrations in my blog to better explain my thoughts about a certain topic. It attracts visual readers because they can easily follow what you have to say thus absorbing more information.

This is similar to, "the strangest secret in the world" by Earl nightingale. The conclusion to his spoken word recording " Man becomes what he thinks about all day long" (this includes women also it's just earl's words). Worth a check if you like motivational stuff. Type into youtube it you're interested.

Thank you, Sam for sharing some thoughts about Earl Nightingale. I come up with that conclusion based on what I have analysed on the result of the Pygmalion Effect. It is the idea of it. I added you in my network. Hope you will follow me back.

All the best in your online business!
Adel :)
