This video produced by the National Geographic shows two different basketball players reaction while blind-folded.

The first lady was an amateur and made to believe that she had good shots while blind-folded, while previously, she missed all 10 shots.

Second time around, when blind-fold was removed, she was able to get 4 out of 10 shots with positive encouragement.

The second guy was a keen basketball player, and able to get 9/10 shots in. While he was blind-folded, he could not get any shots in. When blind-fold was removed, and he played again, and crowd’s negative reinforcement made him miss his shots.

Wow.

What will you do differently today having watched that video?

Is there anyone you will affirm? How about start affirming yourself?
