Maxwell Maltz was a plastic surgeon in the 1950s. He made a scintillating discovery in a new scientific field of his day — cybernetics. He wrote in the book Psycho-Cybernetics that our “subconscious mind” is not just a mind but a goal-striving servo-mechanism.

He compared it to a torpedo or heat-seeking missile. It needs clear-cut targets to work on. And if you don’t give it one, it will find one.
