    I thought about that message and wasn’t sure what to do with it. A part of me knew that I had just found the first piece to an thousand piece puzzle; and going off that impression I decided to learn a little more. I wanted to know if it was true. Do we really become what we think about? I began searching and came across another book. Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz. The book was written in 1960 but I decided to read a piece of it. 


"We all carry with us a mental blueprint or picture of ourselves. It has been built up from our own beliefs about ourselves. But most of these beliefs about ourselves have unconsciously been formed from our past experience, our successes and failures, our humiliations, our triumphs, and the way other people have related to us, especially in early childhood. From all these we mentally construct a “self” (or picture of a self). Once an idea or a belief about ourselves goes into this picture it becomes “true” as far as we personally are concerned. We do not question it’s validity, but proceed to act upon it just as if it were true."
