* Set up a bank account to save specifically for the object or experience you desire. Make it a priority to make regular deposits to this account.

* Ask yourself: “What’s going to happen today?” Will you meet a new person that becomes a good friend? Will you be assigned a new project at work and develop new skills in the process?
* Whatever challenge comes your way, confront it and give it your best effort. If you consider life’s trials as great journeys you traverse, you’ll truly discover valuable knowledge about yourself and the world around you.
