Salut!
I've been getting into some mind exercises lately involving visualization. It's so powerful that I feel great about myself after every session. Sometimes I psych myself out so much that I'm too excited and energized to get to sleep. I should probably start doing these sessions in the morning. -_- Haha! Anywho, I wanted to share some great articles about this technique to help you improve your everyday life. Remember, you CAN DO IT! And if you ever start getting upset, or sad, or anxious, and you consciously realize it, start repeating an affirmative phrase over and over in your head. It may take a while, sometimes 20 times, sometimes 700 times plus 40 mins of meditation and visualization. Make your life a little easier and a lot more fun!

Also, if you need an extra boost, just play this in your head/car/ipod/laptop. I find Bruce Almighty to be incredibly appropriate for this theme...also, I just laughed my rear-end off. Hee hee ^-^

"Thoughts, if powerful enough, are accepted by our subconscious mind, which then changes our mindset accordingly, as well as our habits and actions, and this brings us into contact with new people, situations and circumstances."
