Art makes you.

The things you surround yourself with dictate who you become.

If you surround yourself with nothing or with simple ideas, you will be nothing and have simple ideas.

This is true of people as well as things. See ted talk on social networks and how people are who they spend time with (…/nicholas_christakis_the_hidden_influe…).

You can put up signs and other such reminders but art has higher bandwidth.

A good art piece will communicate more than just a word or a sentence.

It will communicate an emotion. A state of mind.

By surrounding yourself with these triggers you can push yourself into your desired mood.

You can create an environment for yourself that makes it easier for you to succeed than not to succeed.

What do you us to trigger your mental state?
