That's what I was gonna suggest, too - INS's idea of aliens is a little better than the disgusting lil' green men Twinkle has in mind.

In my profession I use something called visualization. I visualize what I am going to do and how. Sometimes over and over again. And it works.

You can apply that to anything in life. If you constantly think of yourself as fat, you will be fat. If you constantly think of yourself as thin, you will do things to make yourself thin.

Nothing wrong with desiring to be a model. But you have to be willing to work for it. My profession is unusual like that and when I started some told me flat out I'd never make it, but I am. I work hard and keep improving and work on it every day even when I'm not out actually doing the job.
