Step 2. Think about what you are missing out on because of the problem. It's an endless list right?
Step 3. Think of as many people as you can who should have the same problem but don't. Start with family, then friends and acquaintances, and then politicians and celebrities.
Step 4. Identify solutions to the problem that really don't help, like looking at porn, getting really drunk or wasted, watch TV and play video games for extended periods of time. These are all designed to establish a life of avoidance,
Step 5. Blame other people. Even if others are responsible for the problem.
Step 6. (Optional) Pretend the problem doesn't exist. More avoidance makes others think you are laid back and flexible - good call.
Step 1. Figure out where your focus needs to be to lead to more successful outcomes. When I was feeling sorry for myself I changed my focus to behaviors that might help. I then felt empowered!

Step 4. Do at least some of the tips, skills or behaviors that you learn from others. If you figure more discipline would help, understand it is a skill, develop it!
Step 5. Recognize and celebrate your efforts to change and even the small results you are making. Sharing is good, it helps solidify you progress. "I've gone three hours without checking Facebook!
These steps are not intended to be comprehensive or new but they are designed to help remind and refocus on what you really want. Learn, Do and Celebrate!
