Quick Ways to Get Yourself out of a Funk

I’ve been in a funk lately… Not a good kind of funk with all types of funky hats and quirky suspenders either…

No. I’ve been in a mood lately… and what else do I do when I’m in a mood? I do my damnedest to break out of it. Reading some inspirational books, talking with my mother about life, chatting with friends on Facebook – whatever I can do to break the funk.

I’ve always been intrigued by what a few simple words and phrases can do to motivate or change a person’s behavior. Whether it is Henry David Thoreau’s personal story of Walden, or a simple YouTube video of Muhammad Ali with his awesome lyrical jabs at his opponents to get in their heads, I’ve found much comfort through the use of prose to instill a form of inspiration or motivation in others… perhaps a reason why I’m in the industry that I am in.

Here are a few videos, quotes, and images that have helped move me and help me get out of this crap filled funk, and help elevate me to committing to greatness and perfection, no matter how out of reach those qualities are.
