    this is going to sound bad but you cant motivate yourself. you have to find something that motivates you. i believe that the biggest thing that will motivate someone is the fear of not proving yourself and failing. you dont want to disappoint yourself so remember that when you say "ahh ill start in an hour" and then you dont. it is yourself that you are bringing down and stopping by not doing the work. and with regards to a revision tip keep your phone away from you as it will cause a distraction, do it in half hour intervals 30 minutes revision then 10-15 minute break then half hour revision and keep doing that.

    Think of where do you want to see your self after 10 years time and chase that. If what you thought is irrelevant to what you are trying to motivate yourself to do, then it might mean that you are in the wrong path. Robert_Gray is right, what you do needs to motivate you. And most importantly, success in what you do needs to motivate you because its what your goal is.
