Paul and Brian went into the office at the same time. They both looked at the clock on the wall, then looked at their own watch, and they had a different reaction:

Paul said: “My watch is slow.”

Brian said: “ The wall clock is fast.”

They both seemed to be talking to themselves. A moment later, Brian said suddenly to Paul, “Why do you think the wall clock is fast?”

Brian said, “why do you say your watch is slow?”

Paul said, “I think my watch is not accurate. The wall clock seems to be more accurate, so I think my watch is slow.”

Brian said, “My watch keeps good time because it doesn’t go slow, so the wall clock must run fast.”

Whether you have self-confidence or not, it directly affects the perception of it. And often, your perspective and attitude is the key to success or failure.

老王与老李同时走进办公室,都看了看墙上的钟。再看看自己的手表,结果却发出了不同的反应:

老王:“我的表慢了。” 老李:“壁钟快了。”

他们两人似乎自言自语。片刻之后,老五突然对老李发问说:“你怎么说壁钟快了?”

老李说:“你怎么说你的表慢了?”老王说:“我觉得我的表不准,壁钟似乎准确些,所以我想可能是我的表慢了。”老李说:“我的表走得很准,因为我的表不会慢,所以我肯定是壁钟快了。

对一件事情,有没有自信心,直接影响到对它的看法。而通常情况下,你对事情的看法和态度,是做这件事情成败的关键所在。
