Are guarana and caffeine smilar or just the same?

When i drink instant coffee which contains 0,5% guarana extract(9mg per serve) i feel motivated, focused and energized but i don't feel same when i drink instant coffee w/out guarana. I feel only some energy but not motivation.
What are your experiences?
Are guaranine and caffeine same or different?

wikipedia.org/wiki/Guarana

Guarana contains a high concentration of caffeine.

Cheers,
