Queens, sometimes the best form of motivation to help you get over any hump and reach your goals is visualizing what you want to do, be, and see in your life. A great way to do that is to figure out what you want and create a bucket list. A bucket list is the ultimate goals list of everything you want to see and do before you die. This is a great tool to have whenever you're feeling particularly unmotivated. Just pull your list out and go through each item for a great inspirational boost.
