Psycho-Cybernetics - The word cybernetics comes from a Greek term that means 'a helmsman who steers his ship to port.' Psycho-Cybernetics is a term I coined which means, "Steering your mind to a productive, useful goal .... so you can reach the greatest port in the world ... peace of mind. With it, you're somebody. Without it, you're nothing."
- Dr. Maxwell Maltz, author of 30 million copy best-seller Psycho-Cybernetics
Dr. Maxwell Maltz created his self-improvement phenomenon, Psycho-Cybernetics, at age 61, as the climax to an already varied, colorful and exceptionally successful career.
Dr. Maxwell Maltz
For many years, Dr. Maltz had a flourishing practice as a reconstructive and cosmetic facial surgeon.
Later still he lectured internationally on his medical specialty, and pursued a dual career as a prolific author.
Dr. Maltz was inspired to move from treating "outer scars" to "inner scars" after seeing many patients' continuing to have feelings of unhappiness, unworthiness as well as personal insecurities that were not cured from surgery, even though they and Dr. Maltz believed they would feel happy when he gave them the perfect new faces they desired.
Dr. Maltz first wrote of this discovery in his book New Faces, New Futures. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Maltz suggested that many people "see themselves" inaccurately, their perceptions distorted by unchallenged and often erroneous beliefs imbedded in their subconscious mind. After a decade of counseling hundreds of patients, extensive research on everything from German missile guidance technology (then more advanced than our own) to hypnosis, and testing his evolving "success conditioning techniques" on athletes and salespeople, Dr. Maltz published his findings, in 1960, in the original Psycho-Cybernetics book.
Psycho-Cybernetics became an instant bestseller and made Dr. Maltz one of the most in-demand motivational speakers throughout the 1960's and the early 1970's. Dr. Maltz went on to amass a wealth of "case history" material, seminars, workshops, radio broadcasts, over a dozen books all applying Psycho-Cybernetics to different purposes, from business success to athletic achievement to sex life improvement.
Maxwell Maltz passed away at age 76, but his legacy LIVES on through the instruction and teachings of Matt Furey, President of the Psycho-Cybernetics Foundation, Inc.
Furey embodies the teachings of Dr. Maltz par excellence. After winning both national and world titles in wrestling and martial arts competition, Furey went on to become a best-selling fitness author as well as a mega-successful entrepreneur, especially with his mastery of marketing over the Internet, where he is affectionately known as the Zen Master of the Internet®.
Furey holds packed seminars throughout the year and coaches hundreds of men and women in his highly successful MasterMind/Joint Venture Connection, as well as the all-new Psycho-Cybernetics Coaching Program.
Those who have seen Furey speak LIVE are astounded at how he can walk into a room and hold large audiences spell-bound for hours upon end. Time ceases to exist as an awe-inspiring presence permeates the room. Nothing Furey has to say is "canned" or "scripted." He speaks stream-of-consciousness, fearlessly trusting in the Universe to give him the very words he needs to uplift and inspire. Oftentimes an audience will witness Furey go on a roller-coaster ride of emotional highs - from laughter to tears to a feeling of profound love and bliss. No one leaves a Matt Furey event unchanged.
