So many threads about sound and about motivation got me thinking. When I like the way I sound I am almost always motivated. It is usually when I am not happy with the way I sound that my motivation goes downhill. So one way of helping motivation is to practice sound. To practice it in a way that limits the possibility of things going wrong so that one is in a positive frame of mind. I find that very helpful so I made a video showing how I work at this.
Let me know if this helps you.
