1. WAKE UP WITH A PLAN
The reason I’m mentioning this step at the very first is that it is necessary for us to have a plan in our mind when we wake up in the morning.
Each day you should wake up with a plan to your goal. Don’t just approach your days in an unfocused void. The state of mind leaves too much room for discontent, opposition, unhappiness and hopelessness. In order to avoid these we always need a plan in our mind.
Apart from this it is also good to wake up early in the morning because that lovely morning breeze, mild sunshine and the chirping of birds could make our mind so fresh that we can start our day with a fresh mind , full of good and positive thoughts.
