** He told a story about Roger Bannister and the 4 minute mile which used to be considered an impossible barrier to breach.  Nobody believed that it was possible until Roger Bannister ran under 4 minutes.  As soon as it was proven to be possible, numerous other runners broke the 4 minute mile barrier.  Why did all these people break the barrier at the same time?  The power of belief!  As long as they believed they couldn't break 4 minutes, it was a self-fulfillling prophecy.

** All stories are backed by research.  On belief, he tells of an experiment ([[Rosenthal &amp; Jacobsen, 1968]]) where teachers were told that some students were 'spurters' who would learn faster than others.  This expectation became self-fulfilling as the randomly chosed spurters gained faster than the other kids.  He also told of an experiment by Langer (cit?) where older people who experienced a week pretending to be 20 years in the past ended up having better memory, improved health, and general characteristics of youth.
