Doubt not

Thomas S. Monson, in the priesthood session of October 2000 General Conference, said, “Remember that faith and doubt cannot exist in the same mind at the same time, for one will dispel the other. Cast out doubt. Cultivate faith.”

How does one do this? Are there really people out there who don't doubt? (If so, have they really examined their faith?) How does one stop doubting? “Just believe” doesn't work for me, and even if it did, is it really admirable to just set aside our doubts rather than resolving them? Do all our doubts have to be resolved in order for us to have faith?
