Tap into the power of The New Psycho-Cybernetics.
Do you struggle daily to reach your goals, overcome obstacles, and eliminate pesky worries about your future?
Most of us still live by the motto, "No pain, no gain." But this approach to life is actually a prescription for fear, frustration, and self-doubt.
Much of what we learn about success is based on the pain/gain idea: in essence, work harder, be more persistent, and develop greater willpower. The New Psycho-Cybernetics formula is anything but painful. It will allow you to achieve all your goals, faster, easier, and with less strain than you ever thought possible.
Entrepreneurial genius Dan Kennedy has teamed up with Dr. Maxwell Maltz to create The New Psycho-Cybernetics: A Mind Technology for Living Your Life without Limits. Dr. Maltz's principles of Psycho-Cybernetics have inspired and enhanced the lives of more than 30 million people around the world. Dr. Maltz invented a simple, step-by-step program that will help you replace a negative self-image with positive affirmations of empowerment.
The New Psycho-Cybernetics will help you:

There are many versions of this book, some edited by other people, some are only 'based' on psycho cybernetics, some are the original text from Dr. Maltz. But this one beats all of them. Good audio quality, narrated by the author, and effectively modernized to make it more appealing. Great Product!
I listen to a lot of this kind of thing because I'm interested in the psychology of performance and confidence. I downloaded this because it had a scientific sounding title, it talk about a 'mind technology' which always convinces the gullible like me, and because I've liked Dan Kennedy's marketing books.
What a mistake!
The audiobook is a development on Dr Maxwell Maltz's work by Dan Kennedy and the "Psycho-Cybernetics Institute" and takes the listener through a series of techniques and behaviours to improve one's self image presented in quasi-scientific way.
The late Dr Maltz is presented as prophet in his field, apparently inventing visualisation, which will come as a surprise to those civilisations who have been meditating for millennia. So reverently does Dan Kennedy refer to Dr Maltz's work you'd assume he was one of the leading psychologists of the last century.
He was a plastic surgeon.
That pretty much tells you all you need to know.
The content of the book covers the basic bases of developing a positive self image, but the techniques and examples are well past their sell by date, embarrassingly so in some cases, superseded by newer and much better researched works.
The narration combines Dan Kennedy (a marketer) and archive material of Dr Maltz.
For a guy who wrote books like "The No BS Guide to Direct Marketing" you might expect a strident, confident presenter but instead Kennedy is pretty meek and laid back to the point of somnambulism. Not that this stops him coming across as arrogant as he frequently tells the listener about his public speaking gigs when he is rubbing shoulders with luminaries such as Bill Cosby. Oh! How I bet he wishes he could edit that out.
Kennedy confesses to being no motivational speaker (and ain't that the truth) by he is a positive Anthony Robbins compared with the speak-your-weight-machine-monotone of Dr Maltz.
And why offensive? Two particular areas literally made me wince out loud. The first example from Dr Maltz, when he tells us that any actress who doesn't learn her lines or "look after her looks" should soon find herself out of work. It's an old fashioned view of women but this is archive material.
There is no such mitigation for Kennedy's assertion that both depression and cancer can be attributed to a bad attitude.
For that damaging, narrow-minded, idiotic comment alone this book should be deleted from Audible's catalogue and consigned to history.

I think it could have been a couple of hours shorter - it did go on and dip a few times, but there were some great points in there
Such a great book filled with practical ways to deal with the self image. I will be employing what I have learn. Turning it into a course for myself to complete.
Effective self-image re-programming.
There was a moment when it all clicked... "your willpower cannot out-perform your self-image..."
Dan Kennedy is not a '"rah-rah" type of speaker. Instead he is clear, includes enough voice inflection to keep you interested, and moves along at a good pace. The older recordings of Dr. Maltz are obviously from a period when the recording quality was not as high, but it's still great to hear from the original author.
To be honest, this book has really influenced me. I've read the book as well, but I listen to this when I go out for my run. It doesn't make me laugh or cry... but it has helped me to understand both my successes and failures in life.
"Great book, well read."
I really enjoyed the narration. Very calm well read. It made listening to the whole thing easy and pleasant. Very useful knowledge too. I plan to follow the instructions and heal myself and elevate my self image and my success. This is a great book for everyone and a must read for anyone who feels crippled by challenges and that has the same challenges repeat over and over again.
"Well worth the time"
The presenter starts a little slow but grabs the viewer further in. Well recommended listening for striving peak performers. JT.
"Must buy for the rising entrepreneur"
Great audio, with many insights into your self image. Easy to listen to. Great for young and old entrepreneur and business minded people.
"Some urgent updates required"
The program is great and definitely of value! However it requires some urgent updates...i.e. References to audiocassette recordings is like 20 years past. Also, the original recordings are sometimes difficult to understand/hear and the background music at the same time surely doesn't help! Just play the recordings and leave out the noise (even more distracting and annoying when playing the book at increased speed!!)
Furthermore, the references to 'handbook material' is a little overstated! There is no such thing... If you refer to the PDF as the handbook then the overstatement is even worse. Maybe I did miss something here...?
Other than that, a valuable contribution to increasing your capacity to achieving your goals, thank you!
"good material, bad bragging narrator"
the narrator is a bragging every section he speaks in. took lots of my time to get the "meat and potatoes" of the book. Maltz speaks in small fragments of chapters towards the end of each chapter. its still good material,
"Powerful tool set for High performance"
One of the most powerful books I've discovered. Great mind tools for high performance. A Must read.
one of the most amazing audio books in the market today! relevant even up to today!
Thus audio is of immense value when you are prepared to take a good hard look at yourself. Are you ready?
"Best Book I've EVER Listened too!!"
The techniques in this book are incredible finished right now at 1:30am and starting implementation today morning!! So awesome!
"Back to Basics - It Never Gets Old!"
I love this book!
"You are what you think about most." - Earl Nightengale
Maltz, Nightengale, Rohn - it's all about positive thinking. This is a great reminder on how we should think...as a professional, as an athlete, as a human being.
