First define what you want to motivate yourself for. Once you are clear about the goasl, make auto suggestion to your self that you will do it. Then gather all information and skill; work out method to perform, arrange the inputs and set them in motion. What you want will e done.
In fact, self motivation is just a matter of self confidence and action, that arises from thorugh knowledge and keenness to work.
By believing in yourself and your ways, no matter what the world has to say about it. By believing there is someone up above who is keeping track of all the things you and the others are doing, and there will be some imaginary day when it all is going to be weighed and everyone is going to get their share. By thinking about some past experiences when everyone except you were wrong. By thinking about some great people who were always opposed in life, but still they succeeded. Finally, by listening to some nice motivational songs or watching some light hearted movie which makes you forget everything and gives a head start.
But , lets be practical, if nothing works for quite a while, it means its time to do some serious self analysis to find out what is actually wrong. Good friends are pretty handy in such situations.
Good question which depends on nature of the person. If you have firm idea and determination to do something it should be targetted and should be considered as your motive... For example if your are interested in IT career then some aim should be set as doing Btech then trying for software company etc...To set this aim you can follow your friends who are in high position or merit list in your class.Just thing that if he can get why not me...on trying with full dedication any impossible thing can be made possible..
However if the person is very weak in nature and often take things unseriously then no one can help him get motivated..
I think this proverb is well suited
"Where there is will there is a Way"
Any person should have will to get motivated and setting his mind under control then automatically motivation comes..
