The basis for life is all interpretation, an internal chatter that either zaps positive momentum or dwells on negativity and drains the well.
For starters, your attitude should weave together what optimizes you rather than than conflicts. For example, instead of looking at your day job as a means of necessary survival, try to find how it bends toward your expectations.
If you have something to look forward to, even if it's an exaggerated goal, it'll push you to find the right focus. Near and far are more attached than you think.
