How to do my own personal duties, projects better? (Detailed below)
Why is it that when I help someone with his/her job, work, project I try and do my best to complete tasks on time and do quality job but when it comes to my own personal duties I just procrastinate, lag behind etc.?
I seem to be working better with outer motivation, right?
But I am an adult so I need to have inner motivation. But how to go about it? How should I care about my own duties, stuffs at least as much as I do with when helping others?

My guess would be that when you're working with someone else there is a high level of personal accountability introduced into the equation.
You don't want that person to stress over your involvement - you don't want them to think you're a procrastinator - or that you aren't taking their project seriously - you want them to think you're a go-getter - that you're competent and reliable and efficient with your time.
When it is just YOUR project - you lose that dynamic.
Solution: find a way to introduce accountability even on projects that are just yours. There are a number of ways to do that, but one that I like is demonstrated here: Loopchange Study Schedule!

Perhaps, you may want to share with someone else your personal duties and goals. Kinda like having a training partner in the gym. If you're working out by yourself, you may get lazy. But if you have a partner to "pump you up" you may develop more follow through.
