Dream about the experiences
When you think about achieving your goal and the steps that are involved in making it happen, think about what sort of life experiences it is going to offer. There may be potential for travel to new places, meeting new people, learning new skills, trying new foods, attending training camps… the list goes on. Committing yourself to a goal offers a direction and the road to get there has a myriad of options and experiences. Listing the experiences that you want to have in your life as part of your goal setting creates a checklist of accomplishments on top of your potential achievements. This makes the process a success in itself, which is great for maintaining motivation. This is why creating “bucket lists” is so motivating – if you have experiences ticked off your list, the year has been successful.
