You Are What You Think!

Here’s an extract from Jason Gracia’s book Motivated in Minutes.

It has 1001 tips and ideas to help you get motivated – it’s a gold mine

for cartoon ideas as well!

Here’s one…

YOU Are What YOU Think…

This is one of the most important lessons you will learn about motivation. If you learn nothing else from this book, walk away with an appreciation for this idea. An example will help to demonstrate the point. Imagine that you want to write a book. Before you chose this goal, you rarely heard anything mentioned about the topic. The next day, after you have decided to write a book, it’s on your mind constantly. You notice an ad on television for writers, your ears perk up when an author is on the radio, and when your friend talks about writing a book, you become interested immediately.


You see, when you think of something you begin to see the world in a different light. Before I became involved in motivation, I rarely heard the word. Now that I have dedicated years to the topic, I see, hear, read, and think of the word hundreds of times a day. It is all because of what I chose to think about. Remember, it works the other way as well. If you choose to think negatively, you will see examples all around you that reinforce your negative and damaging thoughts. You are what you think, so think the right things.
