Back in the 1950's, a plastic surgeon by the name of Dr. Maxwell Maltz made a provocative observation. He frequently operated on people who had facial deformities, as well as those who simply wanted to beautify themselves. He noticed that after the surgery was complete and the patient had healed, some of them felt just as ugly or deformed as they felt before the surgery, despite the fact that their features had actually been radically changed for the better! He couldn't understand why these folks couldn't "see" the new and improved appearance, whereas other patients could. That's when it occurred to him that our personalities have a face, which can also become "disfigured" over time. His curiosity led him to study the mind, and he became the author of one of the best-selling self-help books of all time, Psychocybernetics. His simple techniques are powerfully transformative, and they are geared to help free us from negative and limiting thoughts, fears, and concerns
