Below are some great quotes from the book. Enjoy.

“A human being always acts and feels and performs in accordance with what he imagines to be true about himself and his environment…For imagination sets the goal ‘picture’ which our automatic mechanism works on. We act, or fail to act, not because of ‘will,’ as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.” 

― Maxwell Maltz, The New Psycho-Cybernetics:

“Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance. —Bruce Barton” 

― Maxwell Maltz, New Psycho-Cybernetics

“If you can remember, worry, or tie your shoe, you can succeed with Psycho-Cybernetics!” 

― Maxwell Maltz, New Psycho-Cybernetics

“In an interview in 1992, Leary stated, “It is a genetic imperative to explore the brain. Because it’s there. If you’re carrying around in your head 100 billion mainframe computers, you just have to get in there and learn how to operate them.” 

― Maxwell Maltz, New Psycho-Cybernetics
