    "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well."

    I was on a book-reading tear last summer and this became my mantra, but, I don't know where I read it.

    Also, my mom always said, "Carry on as if you knew what you were doing."

    Don1984, I love Suart Smalley in the mirror with his daily affirmations. Brilliant.

    There are so many literary references to looking in the mirror and giving a pep-talk to your reflection. "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" Song: "I Believe In You."

    And there was a self-improvement book by Napoleon Hill where one of the exercises was to talk to yourself in the mirror each day.
