3  On such days I should boost my motivation to study in order to be successful and accomplish my goals.

I think the native speaker may have misunderstood what you were saying.  I have added some words to correct this correction  :)  However, the correction from Christopher is a better way of saying the sentence.

 

 

 

Now to answer your question:

-  "should to boost" is incorrect, "should" should be followed by an action, e.g.  "I should go somewhere" or "I should relax".  The "to" is unnecessary and sounds strange

-  "boost my study motivation to be successful" ..... you can say "to be" in very short/simple sentences, but in a longer sentence with several concepts, it needs extra words.... e.g. you can say "in order to be"

-  "accomplish my goal" or "accomplish my goals" ..... if you only have one goal then you can say "accomplish my goal"  but if you have many goals you need to say  "accomplish my goals"..... it is common to hear language learners use singular instead of plural, so the native speaker may have wanted to correct you on this by saying "goals".   However if you only have ONE goal, then it is ok to say  "goal"  :)

 

 

I am not a professional teacher, this is just my opinion as a native speaker

In order to accomplish my goals and to be successful, on such days, I should boost my motivation to study.

"Should" is a modal verb (like can and will), so you never put "to" after it.

 

"Study motivation" is awkward. Be careful of compound nouns; they don't always work! It's better to just accept the natural phrase that native speakers give you.

 

Also, look up "infinitive of purpose". Christopher has given you a good option for rewriting the phrase if the meaning is unclear.
