Sit up immediately when you hear your alarm bell ring, also sleeping in a cold room helps.
Best thing is to try and get enough sleep, it not only helps you wake early but is necessary for your health and if you're having to DRAG yourself out of bed every single morning, you're not sleeping enough.

It doesn't sound like it'll work but setting an alarm the other side of the room used to help me.
Now, I wake up Mon-Fri early for work and I find that my body won't let me sleep any longer than an extra hour at weekends, which sucks a bit but just means it also isn't as difficult getting up in the week as I am accustomed to it now!
Just get up before you even give yourself a chance to think about it. Once you are up and in the shower, there's no going back!

Have someone come into your bedroom, vigorously shake you awake, take your duvet and pillow and bam...you are awake

Consistency with the time you fall asleep, and wake up everyday (even weekends!)
Don't eat/drink within a few hours of sleeping (so you sleep better -> feel more rested in the morning, so easier to get up)
No screens in bed (so you sleep better -> feel more rested in the morning, so easier to get up)!
Warm shower before bed (gets you asleep faster)
Use "sleep cycle app" from App store on iPhone if you have it, I'm not fully sure it actually helps, but it's a good placebo to make you feel well rested
I've also heard of something called Binaural beats, they didn't help me, but apparently they can help, google it
Invest in the best bedding possible, you spend a lot of your life in bed, so it's worth
Open curtains asap to get your body used to when you're supposed to be getting up
Try and get outside asap too

Get enough sleep, but I sometimes use 2 alarms on the other side of the room (suggested above). If you are motivated enough you will get up.
