So I've recorded a couple of songs and covers but I feel a total lack of motivation because I really don't think I like my voice.. I love what I do but everytime I listen to myself I get so uninspired I sometimes just quit in mid songwriting. I have these great ideas and then when I start recording vocals I just quit... Does this happen to anybody else? Should I just keep going? And I don't think technique will help since it's the overall character of my voice I don't like.

If you don't like your voice, you need to identify what aspects you don't like. How exactly do you want to sound? Your technique isn't bad, but there is definitely a lot you can change to sound like another person... if that is what you are after.

GoldenGuitarI really like Van Morrison and some other old timers. It seems like all of those old guys have the same technique... Really powerful. I like this man too

A vocal coach can help bring out he best in your voice.

I have actually had a lot of formal vocal training over the years and sing well with others but as a lead singer/frontman my voice is...plain vanilla. It is what it is so I do a lot of the ballads and 3 part stuff but we need a different instrument for big lead rock vocals.

I was expecting to hear my own voice. Your voice is awesome dude, I wish I had it.
