Self-help books of the past extolled the value of positive thinking. Today, a widely used variation of positive thinking is guided imagery, also known as visualisation. By forming compelling, positive images in the mind, a person overcomes the blocks that have plagued every generation - anxiety and self-doubt.

The method involves forming vivid mental pictures of what you are trying to achieve.

Based on material from "How to Boost your brain-power" by Roger Yepson published by Rodale press 1987.
