I talk shit to the bar for a few seconds to get thinking positive, but as soon as I've psyched myself up, I shut up and clear my head...turn on auto-pilot and just do it.

For what it's worth, someone (a power-lifting guy) told me once that the most successful lifters (successful in that they have a high percentage of completed attempts) on average clear their head for 10 seconds before the lift. I don't know if he pulled that out of his ass or what...but I figure I'd just pass that nugget along.
