I'm afraid your sentence is not structured correctly and in fact makes no real sense.

What I think you mean is:

What I lack now I will make up for through my desire to excel. :ok:

OR

I will make up for what I lack now through my desire to excel. :ok:

okay, Thank you so much Josef, Appreciate your help.
That's what i mean.
Then how about the sentence
"What I lack now, I will make it up"
Is this sentence correct? or incomplete?
