Self-motivation becomes a very vital factor for the employees, when organizations failure is apparent in many aspects of organizational functioning. Self-motivated employees help themselves individually and they help the organizations mutually. In many extent organizations do not provide motivational elements for the employees.

But the reality is that employees have to continue their works within the demotivating circumstances because of survival issues. This study assists how employees use their self-motivation to overcome the workplace barriers. Qualitative research (semi-structured interview) approach has been applied in this research to collect data from 20 employees among the Bangladeshi Readymade Garments (RMG) factories. The findings suggested that self-motivation works positively to reduce conservatism, negative mindset, lack of self-confidence, and to overcome inner conflict.
