I'll admit that I'm just guessing, and I don't have any desire to judge or offend you, but it seems to me that you're unhappy with your lack of motivation. I'm suggesting that you might be better served finding a way to be happy in whatever circumstances you are in now (after all you said yourself they're not bad) rather than putting your hopes for happiness on things you may or may no achieve that may or may not make you happy. Then, once you have that more or less sorted take another look at what you want to achieve.
The thing is... if we were all motivated and doing more then what is necessary would we be goofing on the forum/internet all day ?
Not the best place to ask that question.... hence all the responses: "hey that sounds like me"
Tonnes of things I want to do, both in work and life, are hindered by me thing about it too much.
I want to get more qualifications, I want to be better at my job, I want to invent something really cool and make it available to the public.
This weekend I decided I wanted to start helping with habitat for humanity... I have the application open on my browser, just need to click send... still haven't done it.
what I end up doing is committing to things to achieve my goals, then use that as motivation. A while ago I registered for the Argus, its R500 that I could have spent doing something else but I used that as motivation to achieve my goal. In the end I finished the race but its only because one day I just sat down and registered. The rest was me just guilting myself.
So just kick start your goal with a commitment.

My idea of "Help from above" is a sniper on a roof.
Dedication, hard work & an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen?
"Willpower is the spearhead of self-discipline. To use a World War II analogy, willpower would be D-Day, the Normandy Invasion. It was the gigantic battle that turned the tide of the war and got things moving in a new direction, even though it took another year to reach VE Day (Victory in Europe).
To make that kind of effort every day of the war would have been impossible. Willpower is a concentration of force. You gather up all your energy and make a massive thrust forward. You attack your problems strategically at their weakest points until they crack, allowing you enough room to maneuver deeper into their territory and finish them off.
So the proper use of willpower is to establish that beachhead — to permanently change the territory itself such that it’s easier to continue moving on. Use willpower to reduce the ongoing need for such a high level of sustained force. You need to use your willpower to establish a beachhead on the shores of your goal." ~ Steve Pavlina
Im interested in those who feel demotivated? Mind answering these questions, if you dont want to please feel free to ignore:
Last lay (aka sex)?
I have a feeling that sex is one of the best motivators, anti depression activities around. That, and LSD.
