These are all great questions and only you can answer them. A lot of people need external motivation to get something done; but not you. Your motivation comes from inside you. You will do more than expected every day. Today will not make a difference. But tomorrow, the next day, and the day after that will begin to show your improvement. Most people do not have the discipline to raise their expectations when no one is looking. But you can be different. You can be great. It's up to you!
