If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

Psycho Cybernetics: The Power of Deep Desire

Rational thought, to be effective in changing belief and behavior, must be accompanied by deep feeling and desire.
Picture to yourself what you would like to be and have, and assume for the moment that such things might be possible. Arouse a deep desire for these things. Become enthusiastic about them. Dwell upon them-and keep going over them in your mind. Your present negative beliefs were formed by thought plus feelings. Generate enough emotion, or deep feeling, and your new thoughts and ideas will cancel them out.
If you will analyze this you will see that you are using a process you have often used before-worry! The only difference is you change your goals from negative to positive. When you worry, you first of

Turning what you think into reality

 "Hold a picture of yourself long and steadily enough in your mind's eye and you will be drawn toward it," said Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick. "Picture yourself vividly as defeated and that alone will make victory impossible. Picture yourself vividly as winning and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. Great living starts with a picture held in your imagination, of what you would like to do or be."
  Your present self-image was built upon your own imagination pictures of yourself in the past which grew out of interpretations and evaluations

Self-Image: Its Value

This self-image becomes a golden key to living a better life because of two important discoveries:
1. All your actions, feelings, behavior-even your abilities-are always consistent with this self-image.
In short, you will "act like" the sort of person you conceive yourself to be. Not only this,  but you literally  cannot act otherwise, in spite of all your conscious efforts or will power. The man who conceives himself to be a "failure-type-person" will find some way to fail, in spite of all his good intentions, or his will power, even if opportunity is literally dumped in his lap. The person who conceives himself to be a victim of injustice, one "who was meant to suffer," will invariably find

Ways to Enable your Success Mechanism

You do need to be familiar with the following, however, because having memorized, they will throw "new light" on what is to follow:
1. Your built-in success mechanism must have a goal or "target." This goal, or target, must be conceived of as "already in existence by either (1) steering you to a goal already in existence or by (2) "discovering" something already in existence.

2. The automatic mechanism is teleological, that is, operates, or must be oriented to "end results," goals. Do not be discouraged because the "means whereby" may not be apparent. It is the function of the automatic mechanism to supply the "means whereby" when you supply the goal. Think in terms of the end result, and the means whereby will often take care of themselves.

The Secret of "Hypnotic Power"

Dr. Theodore Xenophon Barber has conducted extensive research into the phenomena of hypnosis, both when he was associated with the psychology department of American University in Washington, D.C, and also after becoming associated with the Laboratory of Social Relations at Harvard. Writing in Science Digest recently he said:
"We found that hypnotic subjects are able to do surprising things only when convinced that the

Knowing about Psycho Cybernetics

Psycho Cybernetics is about changing and improving oneself, enabling to feel and live as changed individual.
The author Maxwell Maltz was a highly successful plastic surgeon based in New York. He found that though he could change his patients' faces, often they would still feel bad about their appearance for psychological reasons; they were in need of a "psychological facelift." Maltz popularised the term "self-image" to describe this inner face.In 1960 he published
Psycho-Cybernetics in which he introduced his analogy of the brain as a cybernetic "servo-mechanism", like the computer on a guided missile,designed to automatically find a path to the target (self-image) it is programmed with. His book was highly innovative at the time and became one of the most influential text son the subject of self-image psychology and goal visualization.
