If you get your expectations about yourself too high, the pressure subconsciously rises. Then, when the moment comes to prove that you'll live up to them, you freeze. Or rebel. Or break down. Remedy: Don't think in superlatives like 'all day', 'every day'. Not even for a second. Instead implement a rule that you can *definitely* follow, no matter what. Could be something like 15 minutes coding daily. Do that for two months; mark off on a list every day after you did your 15 minutes. Again, don't be a robot about it! If at a single day you just can't, forgive yourself - back on the horse next day. Be serious, though, and get a 5 of 7 average over two months. If you make it, try 20 minutes next 'season'. Later on the job, you'll write for hours and hours, but you'll get paid for it and you'll have a boss helping you by breathing down your neck. ;-) For now, settle for steady (even if slowish) progress. Slow is better than not at all because you overestimate yourself and end up evading.

Remember after you pass degree it would be not easy for you to get a job if you are not good at coding So, think about your future and start working hard.

Well, based on your explanations, I suggest you start somewhere. Learn these according to my personal preference: HTML, CSS, BOOSTRAP, then PHP, MYSQL, then JavaScript. The challenges you'll meet with the above mentioned are common as a programmer. That's my advice. But then each region or continent or country has common and more acceptable languages but the above mentioned are most common. That's my humble opinion.

Choose problems to solve based on what your difficulty level is. Solve as many problems as you can. Start off from small problems involving strings, pointers, array manipulation. Once you get the taste of it, Coding is gonna be a habit.

Well check this out. Assume that your life depends on coding and that when you graduate with little or no proper coding skills, you ain't gonna be useful to your family and society. MOVE AND GET CODING IMMEDITELY.

I suggest you take a fresher course in Maths. Especially in Equations of various types, indices and then do play lots of game puzzles. Trust me, it will go a long way to help your brain to be more tactical is problem solving.

Don't say, "I'm gonna code all day", say instead, "I'm gonna code at least 30 minutes a day". And you know what? You can split that 30 minutes into 3. I think the best way to stay motivated while learning to code is to find people around you who love coding. It could lead to something big like collaborating on big projects. Coding is fun when done with others.

Watch some CS50 videos on YouTube. That always motivates me.

Try to make some games it will give enthusiasm to learn programing, then move to small projects Just learn fun

Preparing for the better programming language is like get ride of syntax as well as mood-off until you understand the "E A C H A N D E V E R Y L I N E" written in syntax Listen to the syntax, if the syntax is boring and gotta a headache in the mind... Then relax for a sec and Think again again and again.... Go to YouTube and search for syntax and listen each and every point to understand Plz listen...Until you understood... It is a tool and remedy to process the brain cells to run and run and run.... Last but not least to get rid of lack of motivation...plz concentrate for yourself not for others...and search for motivational videos in YouTube about to program like a pro and became like a pro in programming side... =>If you are lack of sleep then go to sleep until you have a good sleep... =>If you are lack of motivation then get motivational videos until you fulfill urs thoughts... =>If you are lack of knowledge in programming then go and understand everything you understand...

I don't think that "my life depends on coding, I should code or die" is a good way to motivate yourself... I have the same problem: I'd like to code, I even have a bachelor's degree in math modelling but that was part-time education so I didn't learn more than I had learnt at school programming in Pascal and solving simple problems like square equations... My problem is that I don't know where to start from, I know the basic principles but I have no idea which languages I'll need in future to get a job or make the project I want. It all seems so much. I personally need a couch, someone who kicks me from time to time, but not constantly.
