Are you ready for beauty and success? If you magically become more attractive, wealthier, more physically fit, or more successful overnight, month, or even a couple of years will you be ready for it mentally and spiritually?
Here is some information you can find online about the “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz. In a gist, Maxwell Maltz was a surgeon who studied why some people who became more beautiful overnight through surgery did not become happier or confident. Some did, in fact, become happier and more confident, but others became more depressed.
You’ve probably heard it before.
- “Not all rich people are happy.”
- “Money can’t buy happiness.”
- “Beautiful people have sad eyes.”
Now I’m not here to preach about the philosophy of happiness or that being happy is always more important than money because money can help you purchase the time and things that can make you happy whether that is a vacation, a new fresh and clean wardrobe, or a great dinner for you and your family.
But the fact remains that some people who become beautiful or successful have not “grow into it.” They may not have prepared for it.
“Psycho-Cybernetics” does a great job of helping readers manage their self-esteem.
Some people are not prepared for more attention or are unprepared to accept that they are at least “perceived” as better (not that they believe that they are better, only that people start to treat them “differently”). Or maybe they do not feel as if they deserve what it is they thought they wanted.
These are real problems people face.
There is a psychology behind self-esteem, identity, and how your perspective changes when you enter a new phase of life.
If you want to live among the stars (it is ok, just admit that you want to be famous, there is nothing wrong with that) and be highly successful (and eventually well-known), there is some preparation you might have to do. If you have the belief it will happen to you one day, be sure to look into “Psycho-Cybernetics.”
And if you have already reached a level of success or fame, and you are unsure why you feel down sometimes, “Psycho-Cybernetics” might be able to help you find some answers, or at least provide you with some exercises to work on
For most people, beauty doesn’t just suddenly happen, and huge amounts of money don’t suddenly flow into the bank account overnight. And some people have time to adapt to the changes. Therefore, it might be good to prepare beforehand.
Even if you want to live a regular life and not be called on to be on the pages of a beauty or fitness magazine, you could still get some value out of this book to help you become the best version of yourself (and truly believe it).
To rate it, I’ll give “Psycho-Cybernetics” a 4/5 because I think Maltz did a great job of applying his knowledge as a doctor in a way that could help and benefit a lot of people. -1 because there is some more repetitive information that you’ve probably read in other personal development books, although he does an awesome job of putting his twist on it, sometimes it felt like he added ideas to make the book “longer.” But overall, it is a fantastic, and helpful read.
