How to Get Out of a Funk


You ever just feel like you have “lost it”?.. Lost the mojo you had at one point in your life, the energy to do something productive or just feel drained when you know you should be doing something for your business but you just don’t feel like it? You may know my story that I lost everything when the real estate market changed and for almost a year I was in a financial and mental coma, this post will help you learn how to get out of a funk and have the best year of your life!

1. How to Get Out of a Funk…Shift Your Focus

It is easy to be in a non-productive funk when you constantly are reminded of either what you don’t have or what you used to have but no longer have. The fastest way to start getting in the right mindset is to shift your focus from “what you don’t have” to “what you do have”. Have gratitude for the things in your life you DO have. Starting today, everyday, when you wake up and before you go to sleep, write down 10-20 things you are grateful for. Examples could be:

Lungs to breathe
Parents of Children that love you
The ability to get online to read and share this
The capacity to learn new things
The eyes to see the beautiful things around you

 2. Change Your State

I wrote something on this way back in April of 2009 – Are you on the court or in the Stands?. This advice comes from the combination of Landmark Forum as well as Tony Robbins. If you are depressed and wanting to know how to get out of a funk…go do something that will engage your physical body! Go parasailing, bungee jumping or skydiving. Do something that will FORCE your mind to adapt and change to the new environment you placed yourself in. It’s impossible to think about “how bad things are” when you are falling from the sky or being pulled at a fast speed behind a boat. DO SOMETHING EXCITING…something that gets your heart racing and forces you to SNAP out of being all doom and gloom.

3. Losing Yourself in Work is EXACTLY what I did to Get out of my Funk

I was on top of the world. I was making a ton of money in real estate, had income producing properties and worked for myself. That is, until the Florida real estate market changed and overnight I went from making lots of money and having security to being dead broke, in personal foreclosure and having 7 other properties in Foreclosure. I was depressed. I got so mad one day looking at bills I kicked the filing cabinet in the garage. I wondered what the hell I did wrong and IF I would be able to go back to corporate America and beg for a job. That is, until I decided to “lose myself” in my work.

I created a trigger that ANYTIME I thought about how bad stuff was, I would instead choose to prospect for my business. I would reach out to someone on Facebook, call someone on the phone or even call a teammate to see if I could do a meeting for them or something. I went from wallowing in self-pity to making well over $10,000 a month within 5 months without doing ANYTHING else but this.

But Ray, I just have to get my “mindset right”

Wrong. You don’t. You will NEVER want to call leads or prospect. I also don’t believe anyone can Think their way to a better mindset, I believe you HAVE to take action to change your mindset. Wanna know how to get out of a funk? Work your business like the Devil has a contract on you. Work your business till your throat is sore from talking to so many people. Work your business so you hear so many no’s that you start to laugh at them. THEN, what will happen is BECAUSE IT IS A NUMBERS GAME, you will get one result, a tiny result, a small commission that you should then CELEBRATE like you won the friggin lottery! Well, for 5 minutes and then GET BACK TO WORK!

Wanna Feel Better? Lose yourself in your business, have gratitude and change your state and you WILL change your life!
