Self Motivation !!
The initiative it takes to drive yourself to accomplish set goals and see results is your self-motivation. It is the main force, the "why", behind the results you are pursuing & the ability to transform areas of your life and reap positive outcomes. Self-Motivation stems from devotion and persistence, which are characteristics of long term success. The more clear cut you are on your focus, the easier it is to be consistent in your efforts in making your goal your reality. There are two types of motivation; intrinsic & extrinsic motivations. When you are seeking a goal with internal rewards, this is a base for intrinsic motivation.

Self-Motivation will require a long duration of practice but it is a skill which is absolutely essential for success.
