Start with what you can effect in your immediate vicinity and definite in a very specific way what is important to you in the broader sense of life. Then set yourself a schedule that you want yourself to have and everyday make small incremental steps to move in that direction.
Reward your successes and try not to be too hard on yourself when you fail; don't get caught up in the little things. Always return to your process.
Learn why it is you do what you do on a very foundational level. Social media, food, exercise, sleep, relationships, work, friends, where is it that you're getting your fixes and which of these things and in what way they are detrimental to your ability to stay disciplined in your goals.
Try and realize that the struggle is the reward.
