  Lesson 1

The Secret to Being Better

Insight inspired by Psycho-Cybernetics (Maxwell Maltz)

Our first lesson is inspired by a book called Psycho-cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz. In his book, Dr. Maltz shares what he believes to be the secret to being better, which is simply to develop a healthy internal self-image.

During his time as a plastic surgeon, he had many patients who would have their outward appearances transformed (via surgery), but wouldn’t be happier as a result of their surgeries. In short: their outward appearance changed, but their internal feelings and attitudes towards themselves would remain the same.

Dr Maltz writes…

“To really “live,” that is to find life reasonably satisfying, you must have an adequate and realistic self-image that you can live with.”

“You must find your self acceptable to “you.” You must have a whole-some self-esteem. You must have a self that you can trust and believe in. You must have a self that you are not ashamed to “be,” and one that you can feel free to express creatively, rather than to hide or cover up. You must have a self that corresponds to reality so that you can function effectively in a real world. You must know yourself—both your strengths and your weaknesses and be honest with yourself concerning both. Your self-image must be a reasonable approximation of “you,” being neither more than you are, nor less than you are.”

Changing how you see yourself doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why our action step today is to simply write down how you see yourself. Once you have an idea of what your self-perspective is then we can start working on replacing those negative beliefs.
