Do you know the answers? Why is one man sad and another man happy? Why is one man joyous and prosperous and another man poor and miserable? Why is one man fearful and anxious and another full of faith and confidence? Why does one man have a beautiful, luxurious home while another man lives out a meager existence in a slum? Why is one man a great success and another an abject failure? Why is one speaker outstanding and immensely popular and another mediocre and unpopular? Why is one man a genius in his work or profession while the other man toils and moils all his life without doing or accomplishing anything worthwhile? Why is one man healed of a so-called incurable disease and another isn’t? Why is it so many good, kind religious people suffer the tortures of the damned in their mind and body? Why is it many immoral and irreligious people succeed and prosper and enjoy radiant health? Why is one woman happily married and her sister very unhappy and frustrated?
Is there an answer to these questions in the workings of your conscious and subconscious minds? There most certainly is!

In learning how to use your inner powers, you will open the prison door of fear and enterinto a life described by Paul as the glorious liberty of the sons of God.
Psycho-Cybernetics: The Subconscious Mind as a Goal-Seeking Mechanism Maxwell Maltz observed that his plastic surgery patients often suffered from self-image problems: corrective surgery did not always result in correction of the "mutilated self-image". What he found was that the subconscious mind acted like a cybernetic mechanism depending upon the goal. Give the subconscious mind a "success goal" and it acts like a "success mechanism". Give it a negative goal and it will act as a "failure mechanism". Give it "dieting" as a negative goal and you will fail. Give it "body reshaping" as a positive goal and you will succeed at weight loss. Imagination versus Will Power Dr Maltz also discovered that will power was worse than useless in forming new habits. Will power is not the key to weight loss. Will power is a negative way to break some bad habit. In reality, "will-power" is "won't-power", an approach that is likely to reinforce the bad habit. Like a fish with a hook in its mouth, a person using will power struggles to break a bad habit. The harder the struggle, the deeper the habit hooks into the flesh. Don't struggle to achieve weight loss or any other goal.
Dr Maltz discovered that imagination is the key to building a new self-image. For Maltz, will power might fail even when strong as a bulldozer, but imagination could make the same task seem light as a feather. Will power cannot succeed at weight loss, but imagination makes weight loss attainable. Embracing new good habits is sufficient to displace old bad habits without a struggle. Through imagination, a person can plant a new self-image in the subconscious mind. This new self-image acts automatically to guide the person to a goal-like an autopilot. We achieve weight loss or any goal by conforming to the new self-image created by the imagination.
