Psycho-Cybernetics
    #716454 - 07/01/02 07:37 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Has anyone read this book?

I have read it once and skipped through it twice..

Awesome read, but I would like to maybe discuss some of the things with someone else who has read it. Would give me inspiration to read it again too.

Definetely... it helped me a lot..changed the way I see a lot of things.
Very solid and pretty easy to read.
I just want to read it again and maybe discuss some of the topics with someone else who is reading it.

Psycho-Cybernetics 2000? Is this a different version..or just a reprint?

My copy is old as hell... from 1960.. and the Author is Maxwell Maltz

Maybe I can obtain Psycho-Cybernetics 2000... an updated version of this book would be cool... but I still suggest reading the original too.

Well..I couldn't wait and I read the whole book again.

Maybe I will find this Psycho-Cybernetics 2000 somewhere once you get your copy

So Phrozendata...I don't know how you'd like to do this discussion...since we have different versions of the book... but I guess I'll start with one section

Chapter one covers how your self-image determines your relationships with others, how you react to them and so on. It stated that all your feelings, behaviour, and even abilities are always consisten with your mental image of yourself..or who you think you are. You will always act like the person you perceive yourself to be, and cannot act otherwise.

That is, if someone perceives themself to be a failure at any thing they do, will always fail. And if someone perceives themselves to be a "victim of suffering", they will always suffer, the subconscious will find a way to verify this opinion.

Next it covers how the self-image can always be changed. Old habits can be hard to break, and a self-image is just that. He states that the key to changing your life is by first changing your image of yourself.

I really don't know how to discuss this book.. but I guess this is a decent starting point.
