Ellen Langer quote on the psychology of possibility

"Psychologists have traditionally studied the 'norm' rather than exceptions that could show that we are capable of far more than we currently realize [...] It is important for people to realize there can be enhanced possibilities for people of all ages and all walks of life. My research has shown how using a different word, offering a small choice or making a subtle change in the physical environment can improve our health and well-being. Small changes can make large differences, so we should open ourselves to the impossible and embrace a psychology of possibility."

~ Ellen Langer (source)
