Abstract: Let X be a reflexive Banach space, D an open and bounded subset of X, and $ T:\bar D \to X$ a continuous mapping which is locally pseudocontractive on D. Suppose there exists an element $ z \in D$ such that $ \left\Vert {z - Tz} \right\Vert < \left\Vert {x - Tx} \right\Vert$ for all x on the boundary of D. Then under the so-called condition (S), T has a fixed point in D. Although this result was proved earlier by Kirk, we show here a much easier approach.
