  4. To appreciate other cultures. 
  5. To live simply. You can survive with very, very little.
  6. To make friends with strangers as travelling make you desperate for human interaction.
  7. ...but to also embrace your solo travel experience.  You will come home with a new sense of independence.
  8. To try new things as what you do at home doesn't always work when you travel.
  9. To think creatively. Sometimes it takes a little thinking outside of the box to get by.

  10. To find beauty in small things that you did not notice before you started your trip, like a home-cooked meal.

Therefore, in order to be mentally prepared to beat uncertainty, what better way than just imagining the worst case scenario? If it turns out badly, you will at least not be taken by surprise and, if it turns out well, you will be happy.
