Psycho Cybernetics Summary

Psycho Cybernetics Summary

You have a machine inside your mind. Don’t panic. This machine is what’s pushing you towards success. Or failure. Every person has this machine inside their head and this is what Maxwell Maltz called Psycho Cybernetics. But, after finishing the Psycho Cybernetics summary you’re going to have a core understanding of how you can programme your mind for success.

Psycho Cybernetic Summary

Self Image

Everybody you know has a self-image of themselves. And the type of people they are. The problem is that self-image isn’t always an accurate representation of who we really are. Some of the ways we view ourselves can be really positive. However, unfortunately, some of the ways can be extremely negative.

I used to have a negative self-image of myself. That I wasn’t good enough. And sometimes thoughts of inadequacy still pop into my head. But what you’ll take from reading this psycho cybernetics summary, and what I know now is that even though these thoughts can enter your mind from time to time, it’s what you choose to dwell on that really has the negative or positive effect on your life.

The Story In Your Mind

It all starts with the story you tell yourself in your mind. If in your head you believe you’re a winner you’re going to develop winning qualities in your personality and in turn you’re going to become a winner. And the opposite is true, if you think you’re a failure, you’ll begin to create habits that contribute to your failure and you’ll become a failure. You are just one big self-fulfilling prophecy. And the good news is that you can change this. You can turn it all around.

So where do these stories come from?

These stories come from every experience or memory you’ve had. It’s all stored in your subconscious mind. It doesn’t matter if it’s a negative experience or positive one. One of success or one of failure. For example, I can think of maybe one or two experiences in my childhood that affected me in a negative way. And I held onto those experiences for so long. Which in turn caused my negative self-image about never being enough. What have you been holding on to that isn’t bringing value to your life?

And, could actually be causing damage to it.

When I started to believe that maybe I was good enough and that I could do amazing things with my life that’s when I started seeing an amazing change in my life.  Eventually having the privilege of bartending across Europe, hosting cocktail masterclasses and meeting tons of amazing people. And this is possible for anyone. Once they remove the negative story their telling themselves and realise the true story of their life and who they are.

How Do You Change The Story You Tell Yourself?

The way Maxwell Maltz says to challenge the story you tell yourself is to question the negative belief. Challenge it. Ask it ‘Why?’

Before I questioned those negative beliefs it used to go a little something like this:

Negative Belief:  “You’d never be good enough to get that job” 

Me: “Yeah, there’s a million people that would fit the job better than me”

Or maybe it’s

Negative Belief:  “Why would they want to talk to you? You’re not funny”

Me: “Yeah, I guess there have been times I’ve said something and there was just an awkward silence”

Don’t become submissive to the negative thoughts in your head. If you do, you’ll be stuck like I was all through my teenage years. Never doing what I wanted to do, talking to the people I wanted to talk to and acting the way I wanted to act.

Instead, you should handle the negative beliefs like this:

Negative Belief: “You’d never be good enough to get that job”

Me: “Why wouldn’t I? I may not have as much experience as everyone else, but I’m a hard worker and quick learner, I bet if you gave me the same amount of experience and time someone else has had, I could do the job just as well as them if not better!”

Negative Belief: “Why would they want to talk to you? You’re not funny”

Me: “I’m a good listener and I’m interested in people, why wouldn’t they talk to me. And actually, even though there was that one time I didn’t get the response I wanted, there have been a lot more times where I have made everybody laugh. And in fact, I am funny”

What negative belief have you been letting push you around?

Whatever it is you’ve got to start questioning it. Because it’s always going to hold you down.

How To Replace Negative Experiences With Positive Ones

I said earlier about how every experience you have is stored in the mind. And that to live a successful life you need to think about success and remember successful experiences and moments in your life. So what happens if you don’t have any experience you can draw upon? Well, that’s the best part about this book.

You don’t need any experiences.

Your nervous system can’t tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined. To your subconscious mind, everything is reality. So if you’re suffering from low confidence and self esteem, there is a solution. And that is to visualise yourself as being a person with high confidence and a lot of self esteem.

Close your eyes and really imagine the kind of person you would be if your confidence skyrocketed.

How would you hold yourself?

What would you feel like?

How would you act around other people?

What clothes would you wear?

All you have to do is imagine and visualise every small detail and the story you’re telling yourself will begin to change to a positive more healthy one. You do this every day and over time every negative belief you’ve had about yourself will reveal just how fragile it really is. And you will see the kind of confident, positive person you truly are!

The Power Of Habit Summary

The power of habit

If you’re like me, you may feel like some days you have an abundance of willpower, and on other days you can barely drag yourself out of bed. Have you ever wondered why this happens? And more importantly, have you ever wondered how you can change your day so every day is highly productive. If so, the power of habit summary you are about to read will address these issues. And not only that, it will give you an effective way of setting habits that override willpower.

Before we really get into the topic of how to set effective habits is important to know that your brain is always looking for a way to save energy. And the biggest way that you can do this is by creating a habit or routines. In fact, your brain is so good at saving energy that up to 40% of daily actions are habits.

The Power of Habit Summary Points

What is a Habit?

Habits can be broken down into a three-part loop. This consists of an external cue, a routine, and a reward.

  • An external cue is something that happens in the environment, that causes your brain to decide which course of action it should take.
  • After this, your brain will start a routine that it is used to doing, in order to save energy. For example, when you wake up in the morning a cue might go to your brain, which sets a routine for you to go take a shower and brush your teeth.
  •  After this happens, you will normally get a feeling of reward or success. For example, in this case, the feeling of being clean and smelling fresh is the reward.

The more this is done the more resilient the habit becomes. It’s important to realize that some habits, good or bad, become so resilient, that even when you kick them there is always a higher chance of you relapsing. Therefore it is always important for you to stay vigilant with all of your habits. If you know there is a habit that you have a higher chance of relapsing over then you should set an action plan which will help you fight that urge and overcome the relapse before it gets out of hand.

If you already have a habit that you wish to change, fortunately, there is a routine you can follow which will allow you to break the routine and replace your negative habit with more positive habits. Coming up, is arguably the most important part of the power of habit summary you’re reading and that is: how do you change a habit?

Step 1 – Understand What You Crave From The Bad Habit

This is the first step in replacing a negative habit with a positive one. You need to  find out what rewards you get from your negative habit. For example when you smoke it is probably not the feeling of smoking that you enjoy, but instead the feeling of a nicotine rush. This is why patches and vapes are so popular when replacing cigarettes. Because rather than going cold turkey and losing the reward of a nicotine rush. Instead, you get to keep the nicotine rush and form a habit that is a bit more healthy.

What area of your life do you have a negative habit? For example, you might find yourself eating unhealthy food a lot. Perhaps this is because you find it comforting. Or perhaps it is because you like the taste of the unhealthy food.

These are just a couple of examples, which area of your life do you have a bad habit? And how can you replace the negative routine for a more positive one while still maintaining the same reward?

Step 2 – Substitute The Negative Habit With A Positive One

Now that you know the reason you engage in the negative habit, you need to begin substituting it for a positive one. I spoke briefly about how replacing a cigarette with a vape is taking a step towards a positive habit, But how else could you do that?

If you have the habit of eating junk food for the taste, then replace the action with eating an equally tasty healthy meal. If you find comfort in eating. Engage in a similarly comforting activity. But you have to understand the importance of replacing the negative habit. Not just trying to get rid of it. When you replace the habit but keep the reward you’re going to be well on your way.

Step 3 – Believe

Okay, so now you have an understanding of what’s causing your bad habit, the craving. And you’re also aware that you need to substitute the negative habit with a positive one while still receiving a reward. The next step in The Power of Habit Summary you’re reading is to BELIEVE that you can form a new more positive habit. If you don’t think belief is one of the important factors in creating a new habit or changing a negative one. Then just look at Alcoholics Anonymous. As Charles Duhigg says spirituality and God feature prominently in AA philosophy, but its not necessarily the religious component itself that helps people stay sober.” Therefore you don’t have to believe in God, you just need some form of belief. Maybe it’s belief in the system you are using. Belief in the fact that other people have done it and succeeded in the past. Or personally my favourite type of belief. And that is belief in yourself that you are capable to accomplish it.

 Change might not be fast and it isn't always easy. But with time and effort, almost any habit can be reshaped

Keystone Habits

A keystone habit is a habit that is used early on to provide a small win to help boost your belief in the habits you are going to form. For example if you wanted to go to the gym 5 times a week instead of focusing on your different gym workouts, what to eat, how often you should train for etc. You should focus on one keystone habit. Just showing up. By doing this you create a positive effect that overflows into the other areas of gym routine. Which in turn makes it more likely for you to stick to your new habits.

The Most Important Keystone Habit Of Them All

Out of all the keystone habits, there is one that is going to have a greater benefit than all the others. In any area of your life. And that one keystone habit is willpower. Because once you’ve cultivated willpower you can literally apply it to any area of your life with great result.

“But you said at the beginning of this article that habits can override willpower” I did say that and it’s true that you should always try to form habits to help you when your willpower fails. But at the same time you need to start by having the willpower to form those habits. And what better way than by making willpower a habit in itself?

The thing about will power is that it’s not something that is always there or always not there. It’s like a muscle. You can exhaust it if you spend too much time doing things that you don’t want to do. Or something that is incredibly tedious. And on the other end of the spectrum you can also improve it and make it stronger. Another way that will power will wane is when you are being forced to do something instead of doing it by choice.

I used to always tell myself I HAD to do stuff, even if I didn’t want too. And naturally this drained my will power and I wouldn’t get a lot of stuff done. Now, I always says I can do it but if it’s up to me whether I choose to or not. Doing this strengthens your willpower. Because you’ve given yourself the choice on whether you want to do something or not.

And Last But Not Least..

The last point in the power of habit summary is that if you really want to give your habit a good chance of being successful then you should sandwich it in between two already successful healthy habits. For example, I have a habit of getting out of bed the moment my alarm goes off and then straight afterwards having a shower. These are two positive habits. However, I recently sandwiched another positive habit in between the time I spent getting up and getting showering. Now, I do affirmations in the middle.

By doing this you are more likely to remember and engage with your positive habit!

Did you enjoy The Power Of Habit Summary?

I hope you enjoyed the power of habit summary I’ve written. Which habits are you going to change? There’s no point in learning something new without putting it into action. If you really want to make the most of this article and the power of habit summary you’ve just read, then I highly suggest thinking of one habit that you can change today.
