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.

There’s still time to gain access to my See Yourself at Your Best teleseminar, being held tonight at 9 PM EST. And I’ll give you my password to the event for free – under one condition.
Here tis: The event is free to all my coaching members, as well as everyone who purchased my all new CD program, Maxwell Maltz’ Theatre of the Mind
.It is NOT for people who did NOT purchase the program listed above. Why? Because the phone lines are going to be FLOODED as is. There’s only so many people I can let on without complications.In fact, there are so many people who want on this teleseminar tonight that even if you’ve gotten the program already and want on – PLEASE email me and tell me you “DEFINITELY WANT ON.”If you don’t tell me that you definitely want on, I’ll assume you’re leaving a spot open for someone else.
This teleseminar is going to be a CLASSIC.
And it’s going to answer a question that no one seems to be asking:
“Why does history repeat itself?”
No, I’m not going to be talking about political history – although it most certainly does repeat itself. Even so, I’m going to be talking about YOUR PERSONAL HISTORY. Or, the history of those you know personally, care for and love.
Why does the man/woman who’s married to an alcoholic abuser get divorced and marry the same type of person?
Why do some coaches who take teams to the championship games seem to have the WORST LUCK imaginable at the WORST POSSIBLE TIME. over and over again? Why do other coaches always seem to find a LUCKY way to win when they’re in the same championship games?
Why do people who lose weight gain it all back, and then some?
Why do people who are getting results following a certain method, stop using the method that was helping them?
Why are some people accident prone and injury prone while others never get so much as a hang nail?
Why do injuries on sports teams sometimes spread like the bubonic plague?
Why do people who feel used and taken advantage of keep attracting the same sort of people into their lives?
Again, WHY does history REPEAT ITSELF?
You’ll get my unadulterated, unabridged, uncensored and politically incorrect answers TONIGHT at 9 PM EST.
Looking forward to it in a big way.
If you’re a coaching client or already purchased Maxwell Maltz’ Theatre of the Mind, then just email me and I’ll get you my password so you can attend.
If you haven’t purchased yet, but would like to attend, then go here NOW – order, then email me for the password.

One year after being barred from competing in the NCAA tournament, UConn came back with a vengeance, beating Kentucky for the national championship.
But did UConn really win it? Or did Kentucky beat themselves?
Depends upon your point of view.
I say “both.”
UConn, the number 7-seed in the tournament beat 8-seeded Kentucky, 60-54. They are “hands down-hats off” the 2014 NCAA champions.
At the same time, Kentucky beat themselves.
The Wildcats missed 11 free throws. ELEVEN.
If your team only misses ONE – like the mighty Wisconsin team Kentucky beat to reach the finals, it can prove fatal. But ELEVEN?
How can you miss 11 “free” throws in a national championship game?
And this isn’t the first time a John Calipari coached team did this. Back in 2008, when he coached Memphis into the title game, this same sort of scenario happened, giving Kansas the title.
So where’s the breakdown begin? How does something so ugly repeat itself on the national stage?
To chalk it up with words like “it happens” accomplishes nothing. At some point you need to dig a little deeper.
I know a young man who was a tremendous ball player – yet, every time he took the court in a crucial situation, all hell would break loose. The other players would fail to do their job. He did what he was supposed to do – but it seemed like everyone else forgot what game they were playing.
One day, when given the opportunity to coach the player, I told him that we needed to change what happens to the team when he’s given a job to do. We began to work on a mental picture that included not just himself, but the others on the team, doing their job – and the team succeeding.
Guess what happened when we upgraded his mental pictures?
The team stopped screwing up.
So the question is: Can you bring a previous memory onto the court, the filed, the diamond, the office, the classroom, the home and so on – and have your memory positively or negatively influence the outcome of an endeavor?
I believe you can.
Last night, I believe UConn brought their U-CAN memories into the game.
And I believe it’s within the realm of possibility that Kentucky’s coach brought a haunting memory with him into the game, a memory that took place with a different team, six years ago.
It was the same with Marty Schottenheimer. Everywhere he went, he built a winning football team. He took teams that were awful and made them great.
But when it came time to win a game that really, really mattered – no matter where he was, no matter what team he coached, history repeated itself. His team would make mistakes late in the game that ensured they would lose.
At some point, if you want the trend to discontinue, it might be a good idea to look deeper into the situation. As a coach, is it possible that Schottenheimer brought mental images of “Oh, No” with him into championship games? And is it also possible that Coach Calipari did last night as well?
Or should a coach, player, student, salesperson, entrepreneur, etc. – just say, “it happens” when things get unexplainably familiar?
With Theatre of the Mind, you give yourself a fighting chance. You give yourself a way to rise above the agony of defeat, to change circumstances in your imagination first – and later, in the real world.
And it all begins with Seeing Yourself at Your Best - not at your worst.
Tomorrow, at 9 PM EST, I’m having a free teleseminar for those who’ve already purchased a copy of my NEW program, Maxwell Maltz’ Theatre of the MInd.
If you’ve already ordered the program, just drop me an email and I’ll send you the info for the call.
It’s going to be a great one.

Ever listen to all the “one-hit wonders” when they’re playing on your favorite radio station? Ever stop to think, what happened?
How can someone be so GOOD one day – and irrelevant the next?
Well, it’s not just the music industry where this happens. It takes place in every arena, coliseum, classroom, court room, sales office and living room.
Everyone has ONE DAY, one moment in time, where he or she shined brighter than ever before. Everyone has ONE DAY that was so marvelous, so jaw-dropping good, that he’s never been able to duplicate it.
But what if there was a way to duplicate your very BEST day, to duplicate it on command, to rise above yourself and make almost every day feel so incredible that your results skyrocket and you shatter records everywhere you go?
Now, let’s get real. If you throw a perfect game, chances are that it will never happen again, regardless. But there are a lot of games that are just as exciting, just as inspiring, even if they’re not perfect.
The key here is NOT to create exact duplicates of your very, very best. But different shades of your BEST. Shades that you are proud of. Shades that make you say, “Wow, that was unreal.”
The people who are around you, making decisions about your future, aren’t just looking at how much talent or ability you have. They’re not looking at the one moment in time when you shined brightest. What they’re looking for is CONSISTENCY. They’re looking for the person who repeats a great performance over and over again.
No one wants an employee who worked his tail off for a day.
No one wants the salesperson who was really good ONCE.
No one wants the trial attorney or surgeon who succeeded ONCE.
People want consistency. And the gatekeepers in your life demand it.
Even if you’re a solo entrepreneur, the same is true. Sure, you make a lot of your decisions – but your customers – they’re looking for consistency. Being good for a day isn’t good enough. And if you’re not consistently good, they’ll go somewhere else.
You’ve got to prove yourself over and over and over again.
My friend, this is why I’m so BIG on Theatre of the Mind. It’s the only program that is all about making you a CONSISTENT top notch
It’s not going to make you perfect. But it IS going to give you what people in positions of power, influence and control are looking for.
It’s not enough to be a one-hit wonder.
You need to bang out lots of hits.
Yes, one hit may still shine brighter than all the others. That’s the nature of things. But if you have dozens of other hits to go along with the ONE BIG ONE – that’s all you need.
As the late Jim Straw once said in a seminar I attended years ago, “Many entrepreneurs think they need to hit a home run in order to be successful. Not true. Give me an entrepreneur who hits singles and doubles and the occasional triple-bagger, and I’ll show you a success.”
In the game of life, if you focus on giving it all you’ve got, if you’re consistent, reliable and dependable, the coach has got to keep you in the lineup.
Theatre of the Mind keeps you in the line-up by helping you repeat your good performances while minimizing the times in which you
Think of it this way: Who’d you rather have at the free throw line in the final seconds of a championship game, the guy who shoots
50% from the line – or the guy who shoots 90%?
Be the person who gets the job done the right way over and over again. Be the person who kills the competition with consistency.
P.S. There’s been a schedule change for the teleseminar called “See Yourself at Your Best.” The new time for it will be next Tuesday, April 8, at 8 PM EST. Those of you who’ve already purchased Theatre of the Mind can attend free. It’s a bonus for taking action NOW rather than some other time.

The other day a young man asked, “What’s the difference between Theatre of the Mind and visualizing?”
First of all, the word visualizing is a misnomer. It confuses many people, in part, because they have doubts about their ability to do it.
I use the word “visualization” here and there because people are familiar with it, but when I put people through a Theatre of the Mind exercise, I do my best to avoid using the word.
Why? Because it gives the wrong impression. Many people think they cannot visualize. They think they cannot “see” with their eyes closed.
The same people who’ve hypnotized themselves to believe they don’t “see” with their eyes closed, will acknowledge being able to dream in pictures – as well as imagine in pictures. If you ask the person who says he cannot visualize if he can “imagine” – you’ll usually hear an “of course.”
Second, the above still appears to be talking about one sense though. It’s not. Theatre of the Mind is much more than using “inner vision.” It’s using ALL the external senses internally: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.
Every sense that we have on the outside is capable of being developed on the inside. Just as something we dream about in the evening can come about in the day, so it is with Theatre of the Mind.
You can picture, taste, imagine, feel, sense, smell, touch and hear with your eyes closed. Instead of “seeing with eyes closed” you “SENSE” with eyes closed.
Third, when you do Theatre of the Mind, you access past memories and use them to your advantage. When people practice other forms of visualization, the past is usually ignored. The practitioner is future oriented. This is a mistake because it creates an “I’ll be happy when I achieve this goal” mindset.
Truth is, you may be happy for a short time after achieving your goal – but it won’t last long. Why? Because you’ve never practiced being happy. You’ve never practiced living without resistance and stress. And you cannot hold onto an emotional state for long that you don’t practice.
I remember telling this to a friend a few years ago. He began to argue with me, “Dr. Maltz said you need to have a nostalgia for the future,” he said.
“Do you know what the word nostalgia means?” I asked.
“A good feeling about the past,” he said.
“Correct. And how can you have a nostalgia for the future if you don’t know what it feels like to have nostalgia for the past? Ever think of
“Hmm, you got me there,” he said.
Your past and future are connected. In fact, your past, present and future are all right here, right now, in the now. The good news is you can choose which part of your past you use in the now to positively influence the future.
If you drag the negative past into the now, it influences the future to be negative. If you bring forth the positive past and relive it in the now, you influence the future to be positive.
Fourth and perhaps most important of all, Theatre of the Mind gives you peace of mind NOW. Dr. Maltz called peace of mind the greatest port in the world. He did not call the achievement of wealth, fame, titles and rank as the greatest port.
Peace of mind is the component lacking in so many programs. Because your focus is upon the goal, the future, the thing you must have in order to be happy, there’s no peace of mind built into your practice.
With Theatre of the Mind, peace of mind is built into what you’re doing. You understand that you do not find happiness when you achieve
a goal. You bring happiness to the goal. You bring peace of mind along with you. You can assume that happiness is a byproduct of achieving a goal – but you’d be assuming wrong.
Fifth, when you do Theatre of the Mind, your increase your physical abilities and skills. You don’t just achieve goals. You get GOOD at
whatever you’re doing in life.
Don’t know about you, but I think getting GOOD at something is one of the best things you can do for yourself and others. In fact, being BETTER than good is a great way to go, too. And along the way, if you’re willing to put in the time, maybe one day someone will be able to say you’re the BEST.
And it all starts with YOU.
P.S. I’m holding a free teleseminar tomorrow night for those of you who’ve already purchased a copy of Theatre of the Mind. It’s going to cover some important keys to living “One Breath at a Time” and seeing yourself at your best.
April 1st, 2014
John and Becky came home from work feeling stressed out. Big time. They wondered what they should do to turn their stress into power.
The answer was on the kitchen table.
John spotted a package and opened it. Inside was a set of CDs and a DVD on how you can create power and results through the magic
of mental movies.
He opened it and along with Becky, flipped through the CDs, thinking about where to begin. Toward the back, they spotted a bonus CD
entitled See Yourself at Your Best.
They popped that CD out, put it on play and sat in silence, listening to the voice guiding them through the best moments of their lives,
followed by some positive projection for the future.
When the session ended, John and Becky were in awe. All the stress of the day was gone. But more than that, they felt an incredible sense of relaxed, effortless power. They felt that all was well. The rough day was now a blessing.
Five minutes after completing the exercise, a prospective client that John had given up on, suddenly called and wanted to meet ASAP.
He wanted to get involved with their program.
John sent me an email: “Coincidence? I think not,” he wrote.
When you do Theatre of the Mind exercises like See Yourself at Your Best – a bonus CD in my new program – you train yourself out of the “rough day” feelings and transform those energies into something “out of this world.”
There’s really no need to end your day feeling bruised and beaten.
You can always end your day on a positive note. All it takes is your willingness to let go of the unproductive past while bringing in gratitude and appreciation for what IS working as well as for what previously worked.
You have memories in your mind and they’e playing in the form of mental movies.
Some of these movies need to be thrown in the dumpster. Others need to be replayed on a regular basis so that you can repeat what you did when you were at your best.
Far too many people live life with their best moments in the dumpster. That’s not where they belong. Your moments are memories to cherish and relive, with gratitude, so that you get many, many more of them.
Being ungrateful is like going to a restaurant where the waitresses are rude. Even if the food is good, you don’t want to go there anymore.
The same is true with the Infinite. When you’re ungrateful, when you’re resentful, you’re given more of the same. But when you’re grateful, you’re given more to feel good about.
Following along with me on the See Yourself at Your Best CD is not only a good way to reverse the feelings of negative stress, it’s ‘the way” to create the flow you want to see in your life.
P.S. I’m having a bonus teleseminar this Thursday evening for all who have already gotten the NEW program. It’s going to ROCK. Naaah. It’s going to FLOW. It’s going to FLOW so well you’re going to see and feel rocks and obstacles knocked out of your way.

“Happiness is a habit. You don’t suddenly become happy because you achieved a goal. You practice happiness all the way to the goal. And when you achieve your goal you’re still happy. Never think achieving a goal will give you lasting happiness. It can’t because happiness doesn’t suddenly arrive and stay put. You nurture happiness. You make happiness a habit and then it becomes one.”

Worried about the future? Obsessing about the past? Fearful of how things might turn out? Feeling bad about making mistakes or failing to accomplish some goal? Angry about some injustice inflicted upon you?
There’s a quick way to get out of these vicious emotional cycles.
I like to call it living “One Breath at a Time.”
Not living “one day at a time.”
Not living in “day tight compartments.”
It’s living one breath at a time AS you live one day at a time – or as you focus on goals you want in the future.
It’s a very simple process. It really is.
But simple is often made complicated and difficult.
Because it’s hard to trim away the fat and get to the bone and sinew of what makes something work.
Give someone a simple formula for anything, then watch the person try to add his own twist to the matter. Simple now has
Simple is good – and if you want to repeat something good, keep it simple.
Show me simplicity and I’ll show you focused, deliberate power. Show me something complicated and we’ll see confusion.
Truth is you only get one breath at a time. You don’t get two at a time. You don’t get three or more.
You don’t get to hang on to yesterday’s breath and you cannot prepare for tomorrow’s. You can only take one breath at a time – so why not do your best to live that way?
Sakai Yusai, the late Tendai Buddhist marathon monk – whom I wrote about in Expect to Win – Hate to Lose, told me how he accomplished the grueling 100 Days of Non-Stop Walking feat.
Huh? 100 days of non-stop walking? That’s right. Walking for 100 days straight without sleep, without sitting and without lying down.
He was allowed to eat – but could not sit as he did so. Instead, he could lean against a pole until he finished his meal. And as soon as he finished, he went back to walking.
Any Tendai monk who is given this seemingly impossible task, walks in-doors, in a special room, for 100 days.
Sakai Yusai said that the feat was very difficult the first two days. He didn’t believe he could make it. His mind was filled with worry and self-doubt.
Then he tapped into the power of his breathing. He focused on nothing but his breath. After he did this, the Master said the rest of the feat was “EASY.”
Wait a moment. Let me get this straight. The first two days were pure agony, but the next 98 were EASY because you found a way to breathe?
That’s right. That’s what he told me.
There’s a reason the Japanese proclaimed Sakai Yusai a “Living Buddha.”
I was fortunate to meet him in Japan, at his home, in 2007. I was fortunate yet again to have him come to the U.S. to visit me and take part in a seminar I held in 2008.
“Live every day as if it is your whole life,” he said. When I asked for him to elaborate on that one, he said that you wouldn’t think of putting on yesterday’s dirty socks to wear again today. So why bring yesterday’s trauma into today? You have a whole new life. Everyday. Remember the good times and bring those with you – but leave the negative past behind. Breathe it away.
I’m so fired up about this subject that I’m going to hold a bonus teleseminar for everyone who gets the NEW Theatre of the Mind package – and I’m going to have this teleseminar next week. Details to follow.
If you’ve already ordered your copy of the NEW Theatre of the Mind – (not the solo DVD that was offered a year ago), you can include yourself in this bonus offering. If you haven’t gotten it yet – there’s still time.
Be one of the next 138 people to order and I’ll include you in the bonus teleseminar.
Jump on this NOW, my friend. It’s going to be AWESOME.

The unsolicited testimonials keep rolling in on my newest program, making me one happy camper.
Here’s one that left me in awe:
I have listened and learned from some of the greatest self help gurus on the planet, both living and dead. I can honestly say that all of them made meaningful contributions to my success and my happiness.
I can also honestly say that I have never done what I am doing now. Not once. Not before this. Not ever. I sent you a testimonial over a week ago on your Theatre of the Mind program – but before you use it I want to send you a revised testimonial. A second one.
Why? Because I have grown by using it in a time frame most would consider impossible. It has been only 3 weeks since I got the course and I have been entranced to use it every single day like no other course has ever engaged me. I just keep re-listening to it and doing your exercises.
They’re easy, effortless and are taking me to a whole new level. The people who have shown up and the business opportunities that have presented themselves as a result are beyond anything I have ever had happen.
Many people may already think of me as successful – afterall, I wrote a best-seller and speak all over the world. So they might think something like your course could not make such a huge difference. Well, they’d be wrong.
So let me say this: No matter where are in life – successful or lost, you need Theatre of the Mind and you need it now. Get it learn it and live it like I did for the past 21 days and you will be transformed in a way that you have never experienced and cannot experience anywhere else. If you care one iota about yourself and your loved ones honor yourself and give yourself 21 days of daily exposure to your own Theatre of the Mind, guided by Matt.
You will emerge transformed, happy and on a far better road than you can even imagine now.”

MJF: Thank you, Dr. Dave. This makes my week. Keep me posted on all the good things coming your way.
P.S. One of the special bonus CDs in the package, entitled See Yourself at Your Best, will take you to heights you’ve never conceived of before. And it’ll do so effortlessly, regardless of your field or endeavor.

Ever been around someone who absolutely must be the “smartest” person in the room?
I call this type of person a SPITR – and that’s pretty much what he or she does; spits on everyone in the room.
You know the guy I’m talking about.
Whenever you and your friends are talking, he’ll listen briefly – (and I mean very, very briefly.)
He’ll then proceed to position himself as most knowledgeable amongst all in the room.
He’ll interrupt and begin arguments with openers like, “That’s not true.” Or, “that’s not what really happened.” Or he’ll feel the need to pile on until his information trumps all others.
I know a lady who couldn’t even be introduced without making a comment that denigrated the person introducing her.
“John, I’d like you to meet Jane. She’s the one I told you about who does acupuncture and deep tissue massage to eliminate pain from old injuries.”
Before John can even say hello, Jane “fixes” the introduction.
“Actually, what I do,” she says, “is Tuina massage combined with acupressure and a bit of Reiki, feng shui and tarot card reading.”
Intro killed. Just had to “correct” the introduction before it barely got off the ground. Had to be a SPITR.
I know a guy who can’t stand to not know something about a topic others are discussing or someone is teaching. He’ll keep quiet for a day or two, during which time he’s searching the Internet or the local library to find the one thing about the subject you don’t know yet. And he cannot wait to tell you what he knows that you don’t.
He will NEVER approach you and ask you what you know on the subject. That would downgrade his
SPITR status. He must appear all-knowing, even if the mirage requires staying up for a week to research your area of expertise.
Another SPITR symptom is trying to out-think the master. Even though the SPITR is a complete beginner in a new course of action, he will not allow himself to “listen, believe and apply.”
Instead, he must reinvent the computer. He must prove he can outsmart those whose knowledge he could really use.
Earlier today I had a coaching call with a client. He asked for details about a financial turning point I had many years ago.
I told him that “paying yourself first” regardless of bills and debts was key. I mentioned how you need to take 10 percent of every check and put it away. I repeated the W. Clement Stone maxim, “If you don’t have the saving habit, the seeds of greatness are not within you.”
Then I mentioned that I’ve stated this very truth at seminars for at least the last 12 years. I recounted how this advice is from a man who started with nothing and became a billionaire.
Yet, despite his credentials. how many people who hear the message will follow his sage advice. Very few.
Some refuse to picture themselves saving 10 percent. It’s not part of their self-image. These people are the “I can’t do that’s.”
Then there are the SPITR’s. They immediately try to figure out a ‘better way.” They’ll spends hours, days, even weeks trying to out-think the billionaire.
Years later, guess what? The SPITR is no better off.
This is why I say the SPITR is actually the dumbest person in the room (DPITR).
Now, you may wonder why a person would choose to be a SPITR when it should be obvious to him that he’s getting DPITR results.
Well, just because something “should” be obvious doesn’t make it so.
Once again, it all comes down to self-image. The SPITR feels compelled to argue, fix and overwhelm with his vast knowledge because deep down he feels bad about being a DPITR.
So a SPITR is really a DPITR. A wolf in sheep’s clothing.
And the real fix is so simple: Shut up and listen.
After you’ve done that, learn what to do, picture yourself doing it, then do it.
Once you’ve been doing it for some time and you’ve got a track record, then you can make modifications.
Putting wings in front of the bird’s head doesn’t work. You might try to out-think the Creator on this truth. But you’ll only prove yourself foolish for trying.
Whenever you catch yourself being a SPITR, and virtually all of us do from time to time, remind yourself that you won’t learn much when you’re spitting. You’ll learn much more when you’re listening, asking, listening, asking and ultimately acting on what you discover.

Imagine your son is being scouted by several MLB teams. And on the day the scouts show up to watch him play – he strikes out four times. He fails utterly.
What do you think would come of such a thing?
Well, one scout went back to the office and said to draft this player in the 1st round.
Because he showed the same “face” when he struck out as he did when hitting a home run.
Bottom line: He handled failure professionally in a game that has a lot of it. And that doesn’t happen by accident. It requires training in the mental game.
How do you handle failure? What’s your attitude when you make a mistake?
If it isn’t a reaction that is cool, calm and collected, then you need to make a shift; you need Theatre of the Mind and you need it NOW.
Claim your copy here.
P. S. By the way, the player was Chipper Jones. He’ll most likely be a first-year Hall-of-Famer, too.
