If you are truly passionate about pursuing a career, you will do all you can to try to reach that goal. Self-motivation, the advice from others, listening to wisdom, taking classes based on that career--all these aspects are important in order to help you fulfill your dreams. I'm currently working on getting a book published. I had it published a few years ago, but am now having it professionally edited. I am pursuing a career in editing and doing whatever I can to achieve that goal.

Self motivation!

There is nothing more powerful for self-motivation than the right attitude. You can’t choose or control your circumstance, but you can choose your attitude towards your circumstances.

Here are few tips:

  • Keep Good Company

Make more regular encounters with positive and motivated people. Positive and motivated people are very different from negative ones. They will help you grow and see opportunities during tough times.

  • Keep Learning

Read and try to take in everything you can. The more you learn, the more confident you become.

  • Track your progress

Keep a tally or a progress bar for ongoing projects. When you see something growing, you will always want to nurture it.

  • Help others

Share your ideas and help friends get motivated. Seeing others do well will motivate you to do the same. Write about your success and get feedback from readers.

These are few tips that can help you get started in keeping yourself motivated everyday in your career. Hope this helps! All the best!

Best Regards,

I keep my career moving by sticking to two principles: don't make decisions based on fear, and checking in with myself regularly. If you're in a role that has taught you a lot, but you're ready for new challenges, then just go for it. Having a growth mindset is so important—you will learn as you go. It's better to try something that scares you a bit than to coast.

To keep myself honest, I'll put a reminder on my calendar every year to see if I'm satisfied with where I am career-wise. If the answer is no, I know that means I need to kick things into gear and seek the next growth opportunity. I think being a student naturally provides those moments of reflection every year, so it is really just continuing that cycle of staying focused on your goals!

There are already some great answers , and I absolutely agree that the right attitude and self motivation will bring you a long way. I would also challenge you to network. Broadening your network and knowing key business partners will help you in so many ways. It could also give you opportunities that you wouldn't necessarily be tapped on the shoulder for. Put yourself out there in a positive manner, and take chances.
