Do beliefs effect behavior?

Here we were, in the  middle of one of those super home improvement stores, looking for gas dryers…

Our dryer blew up-2 weeks ago!  Now, you may wonder why it took us so long to get another?

One of my husband’s closely held beliefs is he can fix anything!  One of mine is we need a dryer!

But, we waited for a part to prove the dryer had dried its last pair of socks.  Yet, the part finally arrived last Thurs-he vainly tried to breathe life back into our old friend, the dryer!  Nope.

So, Sat, off we went…Our mission, to get a gas dryer!  But, the store where he BELIEVED had gas dryers-he saw them a week ago…not now, but he couldn’t let go of his old belief system-he needed “new cheese”.

Who Moved My Cheese? is a great book about change & the subsequent reactions. This and other resources I recommend to my coaching clients is at Marcia’s Marvelous Mentions on the web site!

He finally agreed to leave-after asking if they’d had gas dryers before?  They did-they were all sold!

His behavior transformed.  He went after the new ideas!  We, thankfully found our dryer!

It’s being delivered tomorrow-now, we get to move stuff in the basement.

Does belief effect behavior?  What do think?  Help me out!
