In the popular TED talks and books by Simon Sinek, he outlines that what you and and how you do it are ineffective motivators.
You must start with why.
If your goal isn't RELEVENT to you, your life, and your situation, the motivation to achieve that goal is lost. The why, the motivation, the true purpose must apply to you.
Warning: This may require some soul-searching curiosity. Digging into the motivation behind our goals might lead us down uncomfortable paths, but they are paths we must take. The internal willingness to achieve a goal is directly tied to its relevance in our lives.
Take some time and examine the RELEVENCE of your goals.
