When you’re sufficiently motivated to accomplish something, you’ll move heaven and earth to do it.
Motivation is “the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way,” or rephrased, “the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.”

You can physically help your goal by things like throwing away your junk food, only showering at the gym so that you go there, and similar activities aimed at focussing on your goal. People also use public commitments in social media to stay motivated by peer pressure.
Set small, incremental goals that are sufficiently exciting to be motivating and for which you have a reasonable expectation of completing.
Motivation is often the result of action, not the cause of it. Getting started, even in very small ways, is a form of active inspiration that naturally produces momentum.

Usually, such people think negatively, are self-centered, hypercritical, communicating with ulterior motives and life. Toxic people make you feel uncomfortable, guilty, and frustrated, and can ruin your motivation.
Self-esteem and motivation are dependent on your environment. Analyze your environment, identify the toxic people and avoid them. Be with people who support, appreciate, admire you.
