Those who follow their passion and reach the pinnacle of their success typically do not roll out of bed at 1 pm on a Monday, grab a pack of smokes while they drink a Pepsi. Rid yourself of negative influences, instead opting to surround yourself with positive, like-minded , individuals who share the same passions.
Follow these tips:
1. Give Thanks
Before grounding yourself by placing your feet on the floor that morning, take a few moments to focus on these things you are thankful for and why. They can be anything. They can be anything.

A study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology discovered that health care workers were less stressed and less depressed when they kept gratitude journal.

2. Make your bed

Now write out the tasks that will help you to work towards this goal. This will help keep you focused and diminish distraction. Think big.
