Defunking … Every human being experiences funk. You are not unique in experiencing funk, but we all seem to have different process for handling it. What we’ve witnessed, is that this very personal process of handling funk in life rarely changes for an individual, from cradle to grave. Yet, the demands on us to “get over it” increase exponentially in life and the opportunities to be “funked” grow vertically. What we’ve experienced is that this “GAP” between process and trigger becomes the most self limiting variable in personal inspiration, happiness, success, leadership and love for life. The more that funk happens, and the more funk we experience, without resolution, the more likely it is that we will put the foot on the brake. So, the normal reaction for people in a funk (self scores below 5/10 in any area of life) is to focus solely on one or two of these areas of life in order to defunk. For example, if someone was down in career, they might turn to mentor. Down in health, they might end up at a gym or personal trainer. Mentally down they might even start meditating, and so on.The problem with this is that as one area of life gets sorted, funk grows in another area. One improves, another shrinks. So we go from unfulfilled at work that triggers us to drive harder but as a result, our family and love-life suffers. Or if our finances are struggling we might start worrying about money and ignore our health. Our overall FUNK score (VIP Score) doesn’t change, it simply changes shape. Old problems may go away, new ones appear.
