When you get it right your motivation becomes effortless and flows. This comes from being congruent internally. I personally don't believe in hard work and know that anybody does anything that needs prolonged dedication because they enjoyed doing it to a large extent. That is probably the main motivating factor for most people - the intrinsic enjoyment value of the task.
This myth that pervades society that work should be hard is probably spread and perpetuated by successful people who want to feed their egos and seem as if they are better because they made it by going through a load of stress and strain. They say that they worked hard but in fact it came effortlessly and it was an enjoyable experience as all motivated activety usually is whether you are motivated to create something or watch TV. This myth is generally damaging to society because it means that people think that you have to sacrifice so much to become successful and put yourself through things you dont enjoy. People subsequently get put off and dont follow their dreams because the goals they set themself involve doing lots of stuff that they dont like. Some people actually even struggle through and become successful with this method. It goes against the truth which is that when you are aligned internally you can create effortlessly and experience abundance etc.
When a successful person says they worked hard they mean they did a lot of work. It doesnt mean they didnt enjoy the vast majority of the experience.
