Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon, wrote a book in 1960 called Psycho-Cybernetics. As a surgeon who altered the bodies of his clients, he found that very often their mindset was the same after surgery as before their physical changes. The people were still thinking of themselves as old, overweight or disfigured. Dr. Maltz wrote about them “setting the new goal of a positive outcome through visualization of that positive outcome … otherwise they will get stuck in a continuing pattern of limiting beliefs.” His ideas focused on visualizing one’s goals and he believed that self-image is the cornerstone of all the changes that take place in a person. According to Maltz, if one’s self-image is unhealthy or faulty — all of a person’s efforts will end in failure.
