Human beings are the only life on the planet who is driven by achievement motivation. It can get you too far which you did not even dream of. The people who things their intelligence is fixed they think that they cannot do anything great with their limited brain power. They learned helplessness and depends on others for anything and everything. It is developed due to past failure in life and they stop trying things internally.  The people who things their intelligence can grow they can cross any limit. Their locus of control is always internal they don't depend on others or does not fluctuate on unfavorable circumstance. 

If you have not a very strong emotion with your goal you cannot give your full potential. So, find the motivation trigger of your goal and never forget it. You have to be motivated intrinsically otherwise it cannot stay longer. The last thing is believing in yourself that you can do it. The great saying "If you think you can do it, you can. If you think you cannot do it, you are absolutely right." If you have a burning desire towards your goal you will get it. The great thing always starts with you and don't forget that you are awesome.
