I think it might be reasonable to also consider outside factors. Is there anything that's not art related that's smacking you in the face?

I'm starting to feel more and more that it's something you are born with, genes basically.
There is no other conclusion I have come up with that separates hard workers with "lazy" workers.
How many people do you know that was like super-duper lazy and suddenly said you know what? I'm going to become super-duper active and hardworking. Hardworking people always just tended to be hard working since forever, the A & B students back in school are still usually the ones still hard working today, if they havent got involved with bad addictions and habit that is.
Of course desperation is a great motivation too, I also think being locked away in some room with only 3D content and work to do would also be a great motivation as you literally will have nothing else in the form of entertainment.
The correct type of 3D is one of the best things I would like doing work wise and even when I was choosing subjects to study back in university, but I have many other hobbies that I prefer over 3D, things that are naturally more fun but dont really pay a salary.
Also Art is mainly about expressing yourself through your media and tools, if all you are doing is copying concept and trace work, or creating general assets because your work requires you to do so then that's not really art, all you are is a workhorse that's converting already existing art over to 3D dimensions, so it can get boring fast.
It's like a telling an artist to draw specific individual boring objects, "yeah erm my catalog requires everyday house objects as hand drawn pictures, so get to it". Don't think many artist will be enthusiastic or thrilled about that kind of work.
Honestly I'd say the luckiest 3D artists are the ones doing whatever they want and creating some compelling and artistic work and still getting paid, i don't know how, selling posters of their work maybe? Etc.
