    What Motivates You?

    A friend of mine was feeling down tonight and while thinking of ways to cheer them up, I was thinking of how I cope with feeling defeated and/or down in the dumps. Usually I hit up Youtube and watch a video or two like this one: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSYtQy9EqTA]MOTIVATION - "Be Great, Powerful Beyond Measure" - Best Inspirational Video Ever [Original] - YouTube[/ame]
    Just curious, what motivates you? What quotes or rituals do you use to get yourself ready to seize the day?

    Re: What Motivates You?

    I go to a movie. Or, I do something that puts some time and space between me and whatever is dragging me down. A breather gives me perspective and oftentimes my creativity ramps back up and I come up with a new way of tackling the problem at hand - - or I just really it's not as big of a deal as I initially thought it was. If I've learned anything whilst swimming with the barracudas = sometimes you just need to breathe in, breathe out, and move on.

    Is this a metaphor for being high on drugs?
