How do you motivate yourself?

As I stated in my previous post, I am completely unmotivated to study. I am very bad when it comes to studying unless it is a topic I am interested in. So my question is how can I motivate myself? How can I say no to the computer, force myself to sit down and look through the notes and textbook when distractions surround me and tempt me?

What do you do when you need to be motivated? How do you get yourself to do something you don't want to do but need to do before the deadline? I feel that if I tried to Google ways to force yourself to study it may only distract me more and I'll get lost in Google. But until then I'm sucked into Netflix with the knowing that I need to study but the lack of motivation and attention span to do so.

Any advice?

In the past I would consider my goals after the exams. And that bitterness comes before sweetness.

That is a good way to put it.

I am not the right person to give advice in this area since I find myself often in the same situation. On the other hand, I don't have to study for anything. When I did, the motivation came from knowing that the sooner I got it done then I would have all that time to myself. I thought of all the things I love as a prize when I am done doing what I have to do.
