"What’s a version of yourself that isn’t flashy or famous?"

Understanding why you want to do something is important. If the why is good the way will come. The why comes with time and intuition, but mostly through being honest with yourself. I'm glad you're having fun; not enough people do that.

It's really difficult to do that, especially when sometimes our motivations are not things we appreciate about ourselves? I'm not sure if we should be changing our motivations once we realize them or if we should just accept them...

You don't have to accept anything except physics (even then, the best parts of physics came from not accepting physics) but I do think it's good to be as close to the truth as possible. Motivation also doesn't have to be one singular, perfect thing; you can start with some dimensionality reduction and go from there.
