Who Was Maxwell Maltz?

Maxwell Maltz (March 10, 1899 – April 7, 1975) was an American cosmetic surgeon and author of Psycho-Cybernetics (1960), which was a system of ideas that he claimed could improve one's self-image leading to a more successful and fulfilling life. He wrote several books, among which Psycho-Cybernetics was a long-time bestseller — influencing many subsequent self-help teachers. His orientation towards a system of ideas that would provide self-help is considered the forerunner of the now popular self-help books.

Best Maxwell Maltz Quotes

Here are some of the best Maxwell Maltz of all time...

Best Maxwell Maltz Quotes: You will act like the sort of person you conceive yourself to be.
Best Maxwell Maltz Quotes: It is no exaggeration to say that every human being is hypnotized to some extent either by ideas he has uncritically accepted from others or ideas he has repeated to himself or convinced himself are true. These negative ideas have exactly the same effect upon our behavior as the negative ideas implanted into the mind of a hypnotized subject by a professional hypnotist.
Best Maxwell Maltz Quotes: He must have a burning desire to solve the problem. But after he has defined the problem and sees in his imagination the desired end result secured all the information and facts that he can, then additional struggling fretting and worrying over it does not help but seems to hinder the solution.
Best Maxwell Maltz Quotes: Happiness is a mental habit, a mental attitude, and if it is not learned and practiced in the present it is never experienced. It cannot be made contingent upon solving some external problem. When one problem is solved, another appears to take its place. Life is a series of problems. If you are to be happy at all, you must be happy – period! Not happy “because of”.
