Day 1: The Shamonj Gifts Work to Learn Challenge- Psycho-Cybernetics
The first book I have chosen to read is Psycho-Cybernetics. Psycho-Cybernetics is the mother and trailblazer of all self help-help books and it was written by Maxwell Maltz in 1960. The book has sold more than 35 million copies. The book has had a large impact on the self-help industry. Motivational and self-help experts in personal development, including Zig Ziglar,Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy have based their techniques on Maxwell Maltz.
Matt Furey suggest that there are 2 types of self help books. There are those that you read and say, what a great book. And those you experience so profoundly that your life is positively transformed, renewed, restored, and changed forever. When a book is an excellent book that changed your life forever, you tend to remember how you got the book and who introduced you to it. As time progress, you begin to recognize the differences between who you were before you read the book and who you became after you read the book. Psycho-Cybernetics is that type of book that is meant to be experienced and not just read. However, in order to experience it you have to respond to the information written creatively.
Entrepreneurs, physicians, salespeople, athletes, lawyers, coaches, teachers, musicians, writers, and others from every walk of life have used the knowledge to develop their Self Imagery and to build their lives.
Everything about Visualization, Mental Imagery and Self Imagery was deeply inspired by Dr. Maltz work, the principles of Psycho Cybernetics. The self image controls your ability to achieve goals or fail at achieving your goals.
If you are going to read and experience this book, it is best to read the book and practice the techniques for 21 days before making a critical judgement concerning it.
As you read this book with me, one of the many secrets you will come to understand is that you can be happy every single day of your life while you are working towards achieving your goals. When you discover that you can be happy right now through the process, instead of expecting that you will be happy once you achieve your goal then you have already fulfilled the promise of Psycho-Cybernetics.
Change his physical image and nearly always you change the man — his personality, his behavior — and sometimes even his basic talents and abilities. The self-image also sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment. It defines what you can and cannot do. Expand the self-image and you expand the “area of the possible.” The development of an adequate, realistic self-image will seem to imbue the individual with new capabilities, new talents, and literally turn failure into success.
