Being surrounded by inspirational reminders of why you're meditating can be incredibly useful. I'm not saying put up a bunch of corporate inspirational posters with jets flying toward a win; but symbolic images that represent what you want to achieve. In Tibetan Buddhism, many archetypical paintings and statues that represent fully developed aspects of mind are used. These are tools for visualization within the meditations as well. That's why high-quality Buddha statues and paintings can be hard to find. So surround yourself with images of the state of mind you wish to achieve. These can be pictures of a meditation teacher, Buddhas or even images that fill you with a sense of wholeness.
