Adoption—the benefits of “psycho-cybernetics” by Judith Land

Maxwell Maltz | Psycho-cybernetics | Nik Wallenda

Nik Wallenda never could have crossed the massively powerful Niagara Falls and the cavernous Grand Canyon on a tightrope wire suspended high above the abyss without using psycho-cybernetic techniques to create a positive inner vision of a successful outcome. Psycho-cybernetic methods are highly popular with motivational experts, coaches, Olympic athletes and individuals in every profession hoping to achieve lofty goals.

Lacking self-identity, feeling insecure and existentially uncertain of their place in the world many adoptees suffer low self-esteem, which is the single most important emotional gauge of future happiness, success, feelings of well being, confidence and positive assurances. Our self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment and determines what we become. Humans are built to conquer environments, solve problems and achieve goals. We find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to surmount and goals to achieve.

Action begins in the imagination. Maxwell Maltz, an American cosmetic surgeon, was one of the most important and renowned authors in the field of psychology. The personalities of many of his patients were remarkably transformed following surgery leading him to believe that self-image was the key to higher self-esteem and success and the key to our personality, behavior, and character. Change the image of self and you change the personality, human behavior and the results. His psychological methods and mental visualization techniques ‘psycho-cybernetics‘ proved extremely popular with highly successful individuals for attaining personal goals and became the basis for nearly every self-help book and motivational speaker.

Psycho-cybernetics provides a path to a dynamic new self-image and self-esteem needed for achieving success and happiness. The mind is a powerful tool. The stronger and clearer our inner visions are the more likely we are to succeed. A positive inner attitude is essential to setting and achieving goals and when our expectations are high we are more likely to accomplish them. Happiness and high achievement are habits. So are failure and misery. How we visualize ourselves performing before engaging in an activity has a direct bearing on the net results. Olympic athletes and exceptional performers in every profession use these techniques to enhance their performance and assure positive outcomes.

I strongly endorse psycho-cybernetics as a highly effective and straightforward self-affirmation method for increasing performance. The common sense relaxation and visualization techniques are refreshingly positive and beneficial as self-motivational tools. Adoptees hoping to reunite with birth parents to create a more comprehensive self-identity, and launch careers as authors and public speakers, will find these mental techniques highly beneficial for increasing confidence, inner peace and happiness, and assuring positive triumphant outcomes.
