>Put in a good day’s work. Being productive at work will make you feel like you have accomplished what you set out for each morning. Stay focused and committed to growing the business, so others are confident in you as a leader.
>Connect with upbeat, enthusiastic, high-energy people. Surround yourself with people who have similar business views and can offer solutions to problems. It can help your mood and productivity to be around happy, smiling people.
