Abstract: Is there any relationship between what a person thinks himself capable of doing and his actual performance? Will an increase in his level of aspiration increase his performance? The answers to these questions have implication for the teacher who is interested in better understanding the student in motor activity. Affirmative answers to such questions might do much to alleviate doubts that exist about the degree of effect or the control preconceived goals might have on the bodily actions. It is recognized that there are many factors which can be held responsible for the reaping or was be of the satisfactions involved in motor performance.
