You’ve probably heard somebody say, in a condemning
sort of way, ‘Take you and your BAD self and get out of
Funny, isn’t it – how the person refers to the other in duplicate.
You … and your BAD self.
Dr. Maxwell Maltz, on the other hand, liked to talk about YOU …
and your BIG SELF.
In contrast to the ‘bad’ self – your BIG SELF is interested in
helping the normal you become something more than the little
self thinks he is.
And your mission is to find your BIG SELF, make friends with
him or her, gain your self-respect, find your dignity as a human
being – focus on what you want and make it happen. You came
into this world to succeed – and you can only succeed when you
understand that knowing the mechanics of something are not
enough. You must also know the mechanics of your own mind.
The other night I was talking to a lady who is NOW – enormously
successful in business. But two years ago, when I first met her,
she didn’t have a single client.
She knew the mechanics of her profession like the back of her
hand. I would even argue that she knew her ‘stuff’ better than
anyone I have ever met. So why no business. So why no clients.
Answer is simple: She didn’t understand the mechanics of her own
mind. She was letting the ‘little image’ of herself control her life.
Once she began focusing on her BIG SELF in the theatre of her own
mind – the world opened up to her and gave her abundance beyond
The key to success, regardless of endeavor, is knowing both the
physical mechanics of your craft as well as the mental mechanics
of what it takes to become a success.
And finding your BIG SELF is the key.
You’ve got to be able to go into the Theatre of your own mind and see
yourself as much bigger than you are – as capable of rising above your
present circumstances. You’ve got to be able to picture your BIG SELF
as ten feet tall; as gigantic.
And when you can do that it – your ‘bad self’ sort of shrivels up and dies
from lack of attention.
Inside of you there lies an Automatic Servo-Mechanism that steers you toward
whatever you think about most of the time. If you think about your bad self
most of the time, this servo mechanism attracts more of what you don’t want and
becomes an Automatic FAILURE Mechanism.
But … if you think about your successes, if you replay them in your mind’s eye,
you find your BIG SELF and this automatic servo-mechanism becomes an
Automatic SUCCESS Mechanism.
Now tell me, which would YOU rather have on your side.
