Let K be a closed convex subset of a real Banach space E, T:KK is continuous pseudocontractive mapping, and f:KK is a fixed L-Lipschitzian strongly pseudocontractive mapping. For any t(0,1), let xt be the unique fixed point of tf+(1t)T. We prove that if T has a fixed point and E has uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm, such that every nonempty closed bounded convex subset of K has the fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings, then {xt} converges to a fixed point of T as t approaches to 0. The results presented extend and improve the corresponding results of Morales and Jung (2000) and Hong-Kun Xu (2004).
