If you are saying yes this is me more than you like to admit, then just know that you are not alone and you just lack motivation and inspiration.
Many people are suffering day to day from lack of motivation. Just because this seems to be common doesn't mean that it has to be your life. We were created to live different lives (not the same), find purpose and complete the goals we have set out to accomplish.
If you are unhappy with your life or unpleased with what is happening around you, then change is needed and you have the power to do so through self- motivation. Einstein challenged that insanity would be completing the same thing continuously but expecting different results. How can change occur if everything stays the same. You must have the desire to change! To have the desire to change in combination with motivation are the keys to goal setting and maintaining.
Motivation is what determines our level of success and achievements. Motivation is a key piece through your goal process. Yes, completing and achieving your goals is a process. Below are some reasons why motivation is important:

Remember that goals come from the desire to want change and this may be positive motivation or a negative one. Identify what you want to fix or change. Identify what makes you happy or how to add more good into your life. No matter if it is the desire of change or an uncontrollable circumstance that forces change, embrace it and seek things that inspire you in a positive aspect. Set powerful goals and start using small motivators such as listening to motivational speakers, surround yourself with positive people in your life, and reading inspirational quotes and books.
Now it is time to commit yourself to a positive lifestyle. It is time to get focused and pour all of your energy into happiness. Get yourself on a schedule. Priorities your day to day activities and focus on important task. Also, be realistic and know you limitations. Motivation is essentials in helping you make the right decisions to complete task and goals accordingly.

The difference between people who are consistent with completing goals and others is motivation.
4. Overcome Setbacks & Delays
How often have you given up on something because you hit an obstacle? Challenges will come and when they do, this is when a decision has to be made. Will you give up or will you be motivated to continue? Motivation is the very thing that will keep you going.
5. Keep On Track
Do not loose site of you goals. Motivation will help you stay focused. We have all heard the phrase, "Keep your eye on the prize." At this point, it is going to take a high level of motivation to keep you going. Be sure to remove distractions out of the way. It is time to get motivated and reinforce your dreams.
