Outcome - Stay motivated in long term

“Self-image”is the mental representation your subconscious has about yourself and ensures that it fits your outer-life, that means, your current behaviors are reflections of your self-image.

Obstacles - Ride your subconscious

Planning for the next temptation prepares your subconscious mind to better respond to your cue by delivering a better routine with the same reward you seek
