Rise Above Pain, Frustration and Failure with the Magic Power of Psycho-Cybernetics and
Theatre of the Mind
Self-Image Exercises Tap the Unlimited Resources of Your Subconscious Mind
Welcome to the Official Site of Psycho-Cybernetics and Theatre of the Mind. This is where we do as the good doctor, Maxwell Maltz, did for so many years. We heal internal scars. We give you an emotional face lift. We transform the agonizing pain of defeat, failure, frustration and loneliness into courage, confidence, love, gratitude and peace of mind. We help you reach your goals by showing you how to remove the obstacles that you think are standing in your way.
As a reconstructive plastic surgeon, Dr. Maltz realized that although “plastic surgery” benefited 0.5% of the population, the other 99.5% had unresolved emotional scars from the past, and that these could be removed by changing your self-image. Once these internal scars were irradiated, what followed was a life of success and happiness with you reaching “the greatest port in the world: peace of mind.”
On this blog, I will be giving you Psycho-Cybernetics success tips for transforming your self-image, as well as making recommendations on books, courses and seminars that will take you to the next level. Make sure you subscribe to our email list as well because we have special offers that you’ll want to see.

Today’s message will rattle a few cages and ruffle a number of feathers, including those of some friends who subscribe to what I call the “F-U-N Philosophy.”
Before I continue you may want to plant your feet on terra firma in order to consider my words more deeply.
Or you can turn on your favorite loud music, the television as well – and grab some rattles to shake as you read.
You might even experiment with both methods to see which one helps you retain the information better.
By the way, I guess I should forewarn you that this email will be a High-Test piece of copy.
High-Test, naturally, meaning high testosterone.
Here we go…
This morning I met with a client at 6:30 A.M. The first words I spoke to him were not, “Hi, hello, how are you? how’s it going?” or any reasonable facsimile thereof. Shown below is how I/We began:”
“Fred, let me ask you a question. Do you think the Great Wall of China was built by people having fun?”
“Uh, I don’t think so,” said Fred.
“How about the Golden Gate Bridge?”
“Negative on that one, as well, sir.”
“You were up early to play the piano, weren’t you?”
“Yes, I was.”
“Do you play the piano because it’s fun.”
Fred hesitated then replied, “I play it because I want to get good at playing it.”
“How often do you think about how much fun it is to play piano?”
“I never think about the fun. I do it because I love it and enjoy getting better.”
“Are there days you’ve practiced that were not fun?” I questioned.
“Yes, of course, but I also realize those practices are important, so I stay with it. If I only practiced or trained when it was fun, I’d never get anywhere. Getting better takes work and sometimes work, quite frankly, sucks.”
As the session with Fred continued, I elaborated further on my theories about fun (as well as feelings). I’ll cover “feelings” in another email, but for now I choose to stay on point.
There are many well meaning teachers, coaches, parents and mentors who have, in my non-humble opinion, erroneous ideas about “FUN.” Everything is supposed to be fun – otherwise you shouldn’t be involved in it. If you’re involved in sports, music, dance, theater or computer software development, fun is IN – everything unenjoyable is out.
Yet, this is not how a successful career or moment in time is created. If you want to write a book, the fun part may be coming up with the idea – but the actual task of writing each day can be absolutely dreadful and laborious. And there’s no amount of marijuana, booze or pharmaceutical prescriptions that will belie this fact. Each and every day you will do battle with an enemy that Stephen Pressfield, author of The War of Art, calls “Resistance” – and yes, he uses the capital R.
Resistance is omniscient. It knows when you’re beginning to weaken and at that very moment encourages you to go easy, to be a slacker, to not give it everything you have, to give up.
This is when the Confucian ideal of “duty” is not such a bad idea. Instead of looking for “fun” – you think of what you want to do as a duty. You can figure out clever ways to make your duty more enjoyable, yes, even fun. At the same time, you don’t make fun the objective. Fun is a foregone conclusion for those truly doing what they love to do. There are many who will never say they do because it’s fun; it is their duty.
In the realm of athletics and other performance arts, coaches can be seen and heard admonishing their students to NOT be tight, to be free and loose. At this point they often advise to “just go out there and have fun.”
I am in agreement with this advice, IF the person is tight or tense. If he or she is already relaxed, if he’s focused and concentrated to begin with, why give any advice at all. Sit and enjoy the tranquility or an undisturbed mind. It’s a rare gift in this world – yet, I assure you the Shaolin Temple in China is filled with monks who live peaceful, enjoyable, austere lives without one iota of thought as to whether or not their existence is fun.
As I told Fred this morning, “Mastery isn’t about fun. It’s about getting better at something; then getting good at it; then very good; then absolutely phenomenal. Once you reach the apex of the mountain, you continue on the same course by adding another skill, another language, another attribute, another art. Always adding something else because this is what keeps you young, this is what keeps you vibrant – and in simple modern day neuroscience, it’s the key to brain longevity.”
Learn something new everyday. Most people stay with the familiar – and you don’t want to be similar to “most people” – do you?
If you do, then go out there and have fun. Do whatever you feel.
If you prefer mastery – or if you want to be at least decent at something, then don’t choose that which you abhor. Choose something you enjoy; something fun. Just don’t place an expectation of infinite fun on what you’re doing. Some days will not be fun. Some days you’ll strike out three or four times – and I don’t care how you want to couch that experience, it’s NOT FUN and neither should it be.
Failing, making mistakes, having setbacks is not a source of pride and joy. Yet, the faster you can transform these experiences into the seeds of equivalent or greater benefits, the faster you’ll get back to doing your duty – or having fun.
Fun isn’t really a dirty word – but it quickly becomes one when it’s the objective rather than a state of being.
Be it. Do it. Live it.
P.S. When you reach the mountaintop, that’s when you realize what a blast you’ve had along the way. You can have similar feelings at the start or during various stages as well – but you better pay more attention to your feet and your direction than your fun feelings if you want to make it all the way to the top.

A week ago today I went to the bowling alley for the first time in approximately 12 years – in part to demonstrate to a client how visualization in action works.
The last time I bowled was in China, wherein I hit my best-ever mark of 181, with an all-or-nothing style of throwing strikes with minimal technical skill. When I bowl, I view my mission as straightforward and simplistic – cause an eruption when the ball whacks the pins.
From the first time I picked up a bowling ball to the present, I’ve played in less than 100 games and have received zero instruction regarding technique, set-up, approach, how to hold the ball or how to deliver a hook.
In fact, until last week, the thought of taking up the sport with gusto and enthusiasm never occurred to me. I was completely oblivious to the obvious; people actually purchase their own balls and shoes and bags and compete all over the whirld in this sport. It’s no different than golf, baseball and all these other endeavors people are attracted and addicted to playing.
Yet, my perceptions were dramatically altered when I called my friend, Will, after playing three games, to give him the report. The first game was a throwaway; a warmup. I didn’t even crack the three-figure mark, bowling a measly 94.
Then I got seriously involved, psychologically and physiologically speaking.
I took my time and focused on my preparatory alignments, getting into a tai chi type of position wherein I started focusing on my feet and worked northward. Additionally and perhaps most importantly, I formed a gigantic mental image of what I wanted: a strike.
I pictured every single pin being shattered into submission as I breathed life into the core of my physicality.
Then I glissaded across the floor and unleashed a torrential outpouring of “fury.”
What a difference a thought makes – especially a high-voltage thought such as the one I was ruminating on in my imagination.
I threw six strikes in the second game and five in the third. That’s eleven strikes in total – after having only one in the first game.
Was I visualizing in the first game? Was I using the powers of my imagination? Was I breathing deeply?
Most certainly not the way I was in games dos and tres.
I was going through the motions and mechanics of what I thought would work. Yet, the reality is, at the end of the day, technique will only get you part of the way to your goal. It won’t take you all the way. As Albert Einstein reported, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
In my conversation with Will after the games, when he heard I bowled a 176, he remarked, “And that was with a house ball and shoes that 1,000 people have already worn. Just think what you’ll do when you get your own custom drilled ball, your own shoes….”
Will planted an idea in my imagination I’d never considered before. What would happen if I got my own ball and shoes? What about getting some instruction, as well?
I can tell you from experience, and from what I’ve observed of coaches in all sports and physical endeavors – any instruction I receive will be entirely physical. It’ll be all about the mechanics, the physics, the structure of the ball and the dynamics at play. If the psycho-physical part of the game is covered at all, I’ll be delighted as well as surprised.
Most coaches actually believe that excellence is simply a matter of proper mechanics and genetics.
Mechanics and genetics are factors that may influence your success but they are NOT all they’re cracked up to be, either.
Epi-genetics can trump genetics in cases that appear hopeless. And when it comes to mechanics, although helpful and useful, consider this: My friend, Will, is a mollydooker (Australian for Lefty) and he bowled a perfect game (300 score) with his weight on the wrong foot when he released the ball.
Then he got taught the “right” way and was never the same until he went back to doing it the way that came naturally for him.
This doesn’t mean that mechanics coaches are always wrong – but they are almost always off target with their body-only approach. When you make the physical body the most significant aspect of what is going on – you’ve neglected the bowling ball shaped apparatus on the top of your neck that really holds the keys to the kingdom.
If this is not the case, then how do people without hands learn to play the piano? How do people without arms learn to shoot the bow and arrow? How do people with stumps for all four limbs learn to wrestle?
It’s an intangible, mostly indecipherable quality that is not easily quantifiable. Call it heart. Call it desire. Call it intention. Call it imagination. Call it will power. Call it all of the above.
Whatever you choose to name it – you cannot see it – but you can most definitely observe the uncanny results it creates.
Be it. Do it. Live it.
P.S. Make sure you retrieve a copy of Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded – then begin the implementation of your visualization skills in a positive manner by working on a game or skill with numbers that prove the techniques are working.

Today’s my 35th birthday (this calculation is based upon going back in time) and as I was fishing through my files to send yet another book off to be published, I found the following magazine column I wrote back in 2006 – a scant ten years ago.
You’re going to enjoy reading this article, especially in light of recent surveys and tests, wherein you will find the MAJORITY of our population, both children and adults, are addicted to their “smart phones.”
Just got back from a walk along the beach with a couple clients. While trapsing across the sand and shells – and avoiding the jelly fish that are in the shallow waters, I explained to them the importance of “taking a pause” from technology.
As great as our computers, cell phones and other gadgets are – I believe they can also be a curse.
People today are MORE mesmerized by their gadgets than anything else. And with this techno-hypnosis comes amnesia for WHO and WHAT created the technology.
People created these gadgets with the power of thought.
But those who use the gadgets forget that YOU are the owner of the greatest Super Computer in the Universe. YOU are both a broadcasting and receiving station.
YOU are the one who creates – not the other way around.
In my seminars I don’t allow any techno gadgets of any kind. At first, the techno-addicts are irritated. But, if they’re open, they soon realize I’m doing them a favor.
Some cannot stand it so they have attempted to go unnoticed,
sitting in the back row with their smart
device on their lap, under the table, scrolling
emails when they could be listening to a riveting message. Even if the person gets away with it, temporarily, what has he gained?
I carry a cell phone with me much of the time – yet I rarely answer it unless it is family or someone I am expecting a call from. I have no problem pausing and letting the thing ring without answering. Doesn’t bother me if someone is angry about this either.
The other day I was talking to a guy who said, “You know, remember when we didn’t have voice mail, email or FAX. If you weren’t home and the phone rang – you still managed to go on living. Now with all the technology, people feel they can’t get anything done even though they are “on call” all the time.”
Use technology to enhance your life – but don’t let it control you. Know when to say no.
Take a pause. It’s good to give yourself space.
Take time to sit quietly and breathe. Breathe into the Super Computer within. Delete the garbage. Make space for new information.
Picture the aspects of your life you’re grateful for. Remember your happiest moments. Relive them and rejuvenate yourself.
And for heaven’s sake – do not sleep with your phone next to you. Put it in another room and take a pause.
Do the above and I guarantee you’ll get more fulfillment out of life.

Let’s pretend you have a goal you want to achieve and it’s really important to you. You think about this goal during the day and dream about it at night.
Then along I come and offer you an alternative.
I say: “I have a proposition for you, my friend. I’ll give you one hundred bucks cash, here and now, and you can forget about your goal. You no longer need to achieve it. Or you can continue onward and take your chances. What’s it going to be?”
Assuming that your goal was something other than making a sum total of one hundred smackers, what would you do?
I posed this question to a few teenagers recently and none of them went for the moolah. I was so pleased – yet felt this wasn’t good enough until I upped the ante to one thousand fungolas. Their answer was the same; a resounding “no.”
When I was a teenager my response would have been the same, regardless of the figure. If I was offered seven figures NOW – or the opportunity to work my gluteus maximus off to become a champion, I would have taken the latter every single time.
Now, I realize that many throughout the world would take the payout and get the thrill of immediate gratification. They’d say, “To hell with goals, achievement and disciplining yourself to a cause that ultimately may not come about. I want the dough.”
Yet, of all the achievers I’ve ever met and whom I respect, I doubt that a single one of them would take the payoff. The achievement of something that you’ve worked for is of far greater value than a hand-out.
Each and every day I practice the Chinese art of taiji quan. Let’s suppose my purpose in practicing is nothing more than to enjoy good health and have peace of mind. And then you come along with a suitcase full of cash and trinkets, offering me seven or eight figures if I’d give up my practice.
My decision would be immediate as well as final: “Get out.”
Now imagine that you’re an incorrigible and irascible trust fund child and you have a nine-figure inheritance forthcoming that you believe you are 100 percent entitled to… NOW. We’re talking about at least one hundred million doll-hairs that can and will be ALL YOURS – BUT ONLY IF you complete a plethora of goals within two years time. These goals include reading 25 classics, running a sub-5-minute mile, learning to play a musical instrument, speak a foreign language, learn a martial art… as well as avoiding certain actions deemed negative. In this particular case, it would mean no swearing, no smoking, no drinking and no “nookie.”
If you failed to achieve the above, you’d get NOTHING. On the other foot, you can give up now and take ten percent of the total – and the other amount goes to someone you vehemently loathe.
Can you say “OUCH” loud enough to wake the neighbors and stir the sleeping cat, dog and hamster?
Well, there’s a novel called The Will by Benjamin Laskin, and it will guide you through a riveting scenario of “the two choices” highlighted above. I recently read this book and could not put it down. I believe you’ll feel the same way about it because you’re literally observing the transformation of a young man from privileged-class “loser” to bonafide success story who succeeded AFTER being stripped of every advantage he had – including his car, his income, his father’s credit card line, and much more.
Because you’re a lover of Psycho-Cybernetics and understand it’s profound and positive message, I sincerely foresee The Will to be a winner in your eyes. That’s why I’m giving it a double-thumbs UP and a double-big toes UP.
Grab your copy today and be sure to write me and exclaim how much you loved the book.
Live it. Be it. Do it.
P.S. About that seminar in May? At the present I’m looking on an event in Toronto in August. I may still be able to squeeze a health and fitness seminar or a Psycho-Cybernetics seminar in sometime in the latter part of May, but things are currently uncertain due to some baseball obligations. I will keep you informed and updated as I learn more.

When I was 13 years of age, I saw a movie on the life of Muhammad Ali called The Greatest.
In this movie, Ali played himself, which wasn’t hard to do because most of the movie contained LIVE clips from his weigh-ins, press conferences and fights, inside and outside of the ring.
At the time, Muhammad Ali was both loved and hated by the masses.
Why was he hated?
It wasn’t due to his boxing ability or lack thereof. It was mostly due to his incessant bragging and non-stop belittling of his opponents: calling them names and mocking them to sell tickets and get free publicity for his fights.
Nevertheless, Ali was my hero and every time he proclaimed with unabashed enthusiasm, “I’M THE GREATEST OF ALL TIIIMES,” I smiled and laughed out loud. In fact, I loved this line so very much that I began uttering it out loud myself, in public, at my hometown’s outdoor swimming pool.
During practice for our swimming team, when I’d finish a race ahead of all my teammates, I would proceed to brag in Ali-esque fashion. I’d point my unknowingly pompous finger in the air, proclaiming myself to be numero uno, while saying for all to hear, “I’M THE GREATEST OF ALL…” – well, I believe you can finish the sentence.
There were three results that came to light after making my boastful proclamations. The first was I won all my races that summer. Every single one. I finished the season undefeated in butterfly, freestyle and individual medley. Second, I broke records at nearly every pool we competed in. And third, I was absolutely, hands-down, the most loved and the most hated member of my team.
Not only did I have much younger, easily impressionable athletes on the team coming up to me and asking for autographs – but I also had others, typically a fews years my senior, who wanted to smash my mouth with their fists.
I can honestly say I had no idea this one superlative sentence, uttered aloud, with enthusiasm, in front of others, would change the course of my life so much.
If I could go back in time and re-live as well as edit this mental movie, I would cut out the section wherein I publicly boasted. Instead, I would be humble in public but a confident, courageous and arrogant S.O.B. as I stood before a mirror in my own home, in private, and uttered the same line with vim, vigor, snap and ginger.
On deeper reflection, I would also advise every single person on the face of this earth to do the same. The reason is simple. Everyone one of us IS the GREATEST OF ALL TIMES. There is never going to be another YOU, EVER.
When you were created the mold got tossed away. You are unique in a way that can never be duplicated. Imitated, yes – but never copied or modeled to exact perfection.
Realistically speaking, YOU are the GREATEST because you swam and won the first and most important race that can ever be swum; when you defeated hundreds of millions of others on the way to being conceived.
Ah, yes, – I’m referring to the “sperm and the egg race.” It’s a true story about YOU and it’s much more relevant and important than the race involving the “tortoise and the hare.”
Don’t believe me? Then get thee before thy mirror – look yourself in the eyes and proclaim yourself the GREATEST of ALL TIMES – with enthusiasm. Do it several times – then stand back and behold the rush and the flow of positive neurotransmitters circumnavigating your noggin.
Is this positive thinking?
It’s more along the lines of positive emoting – positive primal screaming and positive positioning of yourself in your own mind so that you’re well equipped to fight and win the greatest battle ever fought. That, my friend, is the battle for control over your own thoughts, your own brain and your own destiny.
Live your life with gusto and enthusiasm. It’s far better than the alternatives.
Control and monitor the images and pictures you play in your private mental movie theater – then stand back and behold your circumstances shifting to make way for YOU – the GREATEST who has ever lived inside your very own skin.

Today I’m sending you a note from my journal about the wings that allow you to soar through life with effortless ease. Following on the footsteps of my previous email (now on the blog), this entry is in cursive.
Note: If you never learned cursive you probably cannot read it, which is regrettable as the writing and reading of cursive handwriting causes you to slow down and absorb information much more deeply.
Cursive handwriting unlocks the brain in mysterious ways and is an important aspect of rewiring your brain for the positive.

Today I’m doing something you don’t see much anymore. I’m writing to you with an ink pen and a sheet of plain white – non-college ruled paper. See the image below – and enjoy what comes to mind as you read. Make notes – this is a life-changing letter…
November 17th, 2015
On December 1, 1998, my wife’s parents came to the United States for a six-month visit. The visit ended up lasting nearly 17 years, during which time Wai Po and Wai Gong (Chinese for grandparents on the mother’s side) took several trips back to their homeland in China, to keep up with the changes.
Less than a month ago, due to their age and the possibility of health difficulties manifesting, they decided it was time to return to the Big Country. It was an agonizing decision because none of us wanted them to leave – nor did they – but ultimately, they want to be back in China when they take their last breath on this earthly plane, so it’s for the best.
For the past two weeks all of us were counting the days. Last night, it really started to hurt. I could sense how they cherished every single moment with us; how they looked forward to cooking us one last meal; doing the dishes, having one more conversation in our home; watching me write in my journal or practice tai chi; seeing our children doing homework; seeing them exercise, even, as odd as it may sound, taking out the garbage for the final time.
True story, just before getting in the car to go to the airport, Wai Gong (grandpa) insisted on putting the trash receptacles on the street for pick-up. Yes, he even savored taking out the trash. Talk about having a spirit of gratitude.
One last time.
At 5:15 A.M.
When I hugged Wai Po (grandma) I automatically began to thank her for all she’s done for our family for the past 17 years. She interrupted me to thank ME for all I’d done for her and her husband for the same period of time. I was stunned – so was she, I think. Neither of us could say, “You’re welcome.” We couldn’t even think such words. We could only feel a deep sense of thanksgiving for each other and to express it with xie xie ni (thank you).
As Wai Po and Wai Gong got into the car to go to the airport, I told my son and daughter to stand with me and maintain eye contact as long as possible. See them off in grand style. Don’t just turn around and walk away. This is a moment to remember for the rest of your lives. Your grandparents are going back to China, to stay – and the only way we’ll see them again is when we go there ourselves.
I realize it’s nine days early for a Thanksgiving message, but the truth is everyday is an opportunity to be thankful. Each day is a day to count your blessings, to go through your life and cherish the best moments; to be grateful for the life you get to live, the people you get to meet and the opportunities that come your way.
Savor your life’s experiences. Love your family and friends – and forgive your enemies.
The present moment is all you have.
Live in the NOW, aware of every breath, conscious of as much detail as possible in all there is to experience.
Realize how all moments must pass, and will.
Even the most beloved will come into our lives, and eventually go. It may not be easy when they depart, but this “coming and going” is an unmistakeable law of living.
As for our memories, we can hold them near and dear to our hearts. Doing so invigorates us and keeps up healthy. Keep in mind that withIn sadness lies happiness, within sorrow their is joy and within emptiness you will find substance and meaning – provided you are looking for it.
Adjusting to life in our home without Wai Po and Wai Gong will take some time – especially after almost 17 years of being with each other. Ah, the lessons I learned by being immersed, perennially, in Chinese culture, are gifts I shall treasure forever.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
P.S. The teleseminar I held last Friday on Failure Forces for those who purchased Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded, was epic. Send me the receipt for your order by email and I will send you a link to listen to the replay.
November 4th, 2015
Today is the last call for the free bonus teleseminar I’m giving away when you order your copy of Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded – which contains my commentary, foreword and afterword on the 55-years young self-development classic, written by Maxwell Maltz, M.D.
Psycho-Cybernetics is often credited as the springboard and launching pad for the plethora of knowledge existing today on the topics of goal achievement, visualization, self-image and mental imagery. As one best-selling author once told me, “We cut our teeth on Psycho-Cybernetics.”
Similar comments can be noted about the grand majority of best-selling self-help authors of the past 50 years – including many of today’s top speakers and writers, such as Anthony Robbins, Bob Proctor. Dan Kennedy, John Assaraff, Tom Hopkins, Mark Victor Hansen and too many others to mention here. The late Zig Ziglar and Dr. Wayne W. Dyer can also be added to this list of Dr. Maltz acolytes. In fact, the same goes for NFL Hall-of-Fame legend, Vince Lombardi, who had a dog-eared, underlined, highlighted copy in his personal library.
35 million copies sold doesn’t happen by accident.
Now, here’s some important news for those of you who order Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded during this LAST CALL.
I have a free gift for you when you order Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded today.
The gift to you will be a LIVE teleseminar wherein I reveal the Biggest Causes of Failure in Society Today and What You Can Do To Nullify Them.
After you’ve purchased the book, all you need to do is send me your receipt by email and I’ll put you on the list for the priceless teleseminar I have planned. It’ll take place late next week – so see yourself placing this order NOW. Doing so will land you on the teleseminar with me.
Make Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded an integral part of your personal library today. This book has already changed millions of lives. Be one who leads the field in this new era of achievement. .
P.S. A hearty “thank you” to those who have already responded and purchased the book. I’ve been collecting your email receipts and will be notifying you next week with the information about the teleseminar.
November 3rd, 2015
27 years ago I was sitting in an audience, listening to the late Zig Ziglar give a riveting speech about goals and how to achieve them. Partway through his presentation, Zig declared how your IMAGINATION is the “greatest nation on earth.”
In order to make such a statement you must be a person who thinks with both sides of his brain. This is why the logical, linear person, upon hearing such a statement, scoffs and tells you you’re full of baloney.
Zig Ziglar didn’t scoff because he knew nothing great is ever achieved unless someone, somewhere, first imagined it.
Don’t believe me, then look around your home or office. Or go for a stroll or a ride along the road. As you witness the objects indoors – or the homes, street signs, traffic signals, streets, roads and buildings outdoors – ask yourself if these objects just showed up out of the blue, without anyone imagining them being where they are first. I dare say you have a very hard case to prove with logic alone.
As I’ve told my students over the years, “There is no creative power or magic in logic.”
Yes, logic is important, but it is NOT the way to conceive of something and create it. In fact, logic is often the “demotivator” or destroyer of dreams and goals.
Logic, when overextended, becomes a major source of weakness. A person cannot even conceive of a better life because he immediately succumbs while pondering all the reasons something can’t or won’t work. Coming up with reasons something WILL work – that’s not logic’s department. It lies in your ability to IMAGINE.
To understand the creative power all of us have within, it’s imperative that you begin SEEING DIFFERENT. When you see different, you think and imagine unusual higher-powered thoughts – and these thoughts cause avenues to open up in and to you that you were incapable of seeing previously.
These new avenues begin inside your forebrain. When you combine your newly imagined goals with the positive memories and emotions stored within the hippocampus, you’re able to envision taking charge of your life in a new way.
This is what Zig Ziglar understood to be true. Where did he learn this piece of information?
From Dr. Maxwell Maltz, author of Psycho-Cybernetics, the 35 million copy classic best-seller now in it’s 55th year of publication.
Nearly one year ago, I was asked to help create an updated and expanded edition of this monumental life-changer. What an honor it was to add a riveting foreword, a powerful afterword and essential commentary throughout. Today this book went LIVE. I encourage you to order Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded NOW so you can discover new life-altering principles in your life on a daily, consistent basis. I recommend this book to you because it will expand your IMAGINATION – making it so powerful and so effective in causing results to flow into your life, that other people will marvel at the changes in you.
Naturally, most of these people will have logical reasons to explain your successes, opting out of the better life themselves. It’s too bad, but it IS a reality.
Here’s some more great news: I have a free gift for you when you contact me with a receipt for your order. It’ll be a LIVE teleseminar wherein I reveal the Biggest Causes of Failure in Society Today and What You Can Do To Nullify Them.
After you’ve purchased the book, send me your receipt and I’ll put you on the list for the priceless teleseminar I have planned.
P.S. Yes, your imagination is the greatest nation on earth. Place your order for Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded NOW and you’ll understand why.
