Just read how Scott Adams used affirmations, in his Dilbert book. Anyone here has experience with it?

so basically Scott says he did this - he wrote down a goal, 15 times a day, and also visualized. He picked goals that were seemingly out of his reach (one was to make money in stock market - he didn't even have an account, and didn't know much about stocks). He says he tested it many times and it always worked for him.
Coming from Scott Adams - this definitely carries some weight. I mean, the guy is brilliant, there is no way he would not be skeptical about "positive thinking" and just accept what he is told.
My question: any of you had similar experience? what did you do, what worked and what didn't? I am going to try, but just wanted to learn more before that.
