Different people are motivated in different ways. Some are motivated by money or praise. Some are motivated by fear.
One of the things that motivates me is that I hate not doing what I say I'm going to do. So I am going to publicly post a few New Year's Resolutions to motivate me and to keep me accountable.
1. I'm going to write 30,000 words per month.
2. Publish at least four books.
3. Blog at least 3 times per week.
4. Continue to be awesome.
