Maxwell Maltz Quotes

40 Maxwell Maltz quotes:

"The "self-image" is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior."
"Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment."
"Close scrutiny will show that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance, or stay where you are."
"Stand up to crises. Don't let them throw you! Fight to stay calm... even surmount the crisis completely and turn it into an opportunity. Refuse to renounce your self-image. No matter what happens, you must keep your good opinion of yourself. No matter what happens, you must hold your past successes in your imagination, ready for showing in the motion picture screen of your mind. No matter what happens, no matter what you lose, no matter what failures you must endure, you must keep faith in yourself. Then you can stand up to crises, with calm and courage, refusing to buckle; then you will not fall through the floor. You will be able to support yourself."
"Close scrutiny will show that most ''crisis situations'' are opportunities to either advance, or stay where you are."

"What is opportunity, and when does it knock? It never knocks. You can wait a whole lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare yourself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live / with your self-respect alive and growing."

"Begin to imagine what the desirable outcome would be like. Go over these mental pictures and delineate details and refinements. Play them over and over to yourself."
Author: Maltz Quotes Category: Imagination Quotes
"Thus man of all creatures is more than a creature, he is also a creator. Man alone can direct his success mechanism by the use of imagination, or imaging ability."
"When you see a thing clearly in your mind, your creative ''success mechanism'' within you takes over and does the job much better than you could do it by conscious effort or ''willpower.''"

"This is where you will win the battle / in the playhouse of your mind."
