Cybernetics (loosely translated from the Greek): âa helmsman who steers his ship to port.â Psycho-Cybernetics is aÂ term coined by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, which means, âsteering your mind to a productive, useful goal so you can reach theÂ greatest port in the world, peace of mind.â
Since its first publication in 1960, Maltzâs landmark bestseller has inspired and enhanced the lives of more than 30 million readers. In this updated edition, with a new introduction and editorial commentary by Matt Furey, president of the Psycho-Cybernetics Foundation, the original text has been annotated and amplified to make Maltzâs message evenÂ more relevant for the contemporary reader.
âBefore the mind can work efficiently, we must develop our perception of the outcomes we expect to reach. Maxwell Maltz calls this Psycho-Cybernetics; when the mind has a defined target it can focus and direct and refocus andÂ redirect until it reaches its intended goal.â âTony Robbins (from Unlimited Power)
Maltz was the first researcher and author to explain how the self-image (a term he popularized) has complete control over an individualâs ability to achieve (or fail to achieve) any goal. And he developed techniques for improving and managing self-imageâvisualization, mental rehearsal, relaxationâwhich have informed and inspired countless motivational gurus, sports psychologists, and self-help practitioners for more than fifty years.
The teachings of Psycho-Cybernetics are timeless because they are based on solid science and provide a prescription for thinking and acting that lead to quantifiable results.
