Personal drive – the intensity of your desire to achieve a goal
Commitment – the level of commitment either to your job/career or personal relationship with other people can also affect their self-motivation
Readiness – if you are not yet ready to act on a certain opportunity then your self-motivation will also be affected
Volition –your willingness to persist despite setbacks and challenges that will almost undoubtedly appear

The Qualities of a Self-motivated Individual

Self-motivated individuals are much more likely to be more organized than others.
They believe that when everything is organized well it will become easier for them to complete tasks and eventually achieve their goals. They further believe that staying organized helps them complete tasks according to priority, urgency and importance.

Being organized places a person in readiness to take advantage of opportunities when they appear. Many opportunities are unable to be acted on due to alack of preparedness. This leads to regret and in a circular fashion, can depress self-motivation. 

Self-motivated individuals are also known to have better time management skills.

For a self-motivated person, time is money which means wasted time is also tantamount to wasted money. It is even truer of time than money that it can only be spent once, so should be spent wisely. Thus, self-motivated individuals  make sure that less time is wasted and that each hour that passes contributes to their ability to complete their tasks for the day.
