5 Steps To Take When Things Go Bad

5 Steps To Take When Things Go Bad

Sometimes it seems that nothing goes right. Sometimes it seems that no matter what you do, there are problems.

As I’m creating this video and post for you, cryptocurrencies are in a bad way. They have fallen and it seems that there is no hope for some. For others, we see that it will take a while, perhaps quite a while, but eventually things will turn around.

Here are 5 steps that can help you as you face your own trials and challenges. This can help you to overcome those problems.

Also, I’m doing something new on this post. I’m giving you a (limited) transcript of the words. This way you can follow along. I apologize that it is not perfect and even some laughable errors came through. Well, this is the state of the art of transcriptions today. It will get better with time but it is a lot better than nothing at all.

Thank you very much for visiting. I look forward to hearing from you.


(Limited) Transcript For You


00:00:01.800 –> 00:00:10.139
Well hello there, my fellow travelers Terry Brock here and I want to talk with you a little bit just me here in the study, it’s kind of late at night and winding down at a good day today.

00:00:10.500 –> 00:00:17.910
But I want to share with you about how we get through some of the tough times when things are tough right now in the world of crypto, man. It’s getting clobbered

00:00:18.180 –> 00:00:28.260
We’re seeing hit really hard in the last few days and the numbers are in, oh my goodness range. You know what I’m talking about. If you’re in crypto but you know if you’re not in crypto, even if you go

00:00:28.560 –> 00:00:33.060
Well, I’m not doing much with that you know what it’s like when you run into those times, and you’re going

00:00:34.170 –> 00:00:40.350
How am I going to make it. Well, here’s some thoughts that I have just kind of between you and me and I’d love to hear what you have to say about this as well.

00:00:40.710 –> 00:00:47.070
This is to be expected. It’s something that is normal. Hey, welcome to the planet, it works that way here throughout the centuries.

00:00:47.370 –> 00:00:57.840
They’ve had things. And by the way, a whole lot worse than us. We get upset because oh damn my first class upgrade didn’t come through or oh I’m stuck in traffic.

00:00:58.200 –> 00:01:04.260
Yeah, right. Okay. Tell that to your ancestors who had their lives. Literally threatened.

00:01:04.710 –> 00:01:17.100
Day to day through pestilence through famine through wild animals coming after them or aggressive narrow do wells that were coming down the, you know, from the steps of Asia and hit number one.

00:01:17.580 –> 00:01:25.620
They had a lot worse than and today. Okay. Yeah, there’s some tough times, you know, crypto going bad, or I’m sorry, you’re stuck in traffic.

00:01:25.950 –> 00:01:34.530
I’m sorry that happened and other things really much more serious still happen, but this is part of life. And so what we’ve got to do is realize okay it is going to happen. But then, secondly,

00:01:35.250 –> 00:01:42.600
Take a long term point of view. Now this is particularly for those of you, my friends out there in crypto land and we’re looking at everything. He was right up here and then

00:01:43.440 –> 00:01:50.790
Going down for well last year it was the other way. It was right here. And oh my goodness, every day was a little bit better might be a little bit off and then it go back up again.

00:01:51.180 –> 00:01:56.310
And by December, we’re going hey rockin enrollment, AND THEN JANUARY comes around. It’s a little down

00:01:56.640 –> 00:02:05.700
It’ll come back and then February down a little more. Yeah, but it’ll come back. We saw a little bit of an upside and April, and now it’s just an, oh my goodness land well

00:02:06.210 –> 00:02:10.710
Look at the long term if you focus on the long term, rather than the short term of what it is right now.

00:02:11.250 –> 00:02:16.440
It’s going to be good mean by the way a fourth thing really important. Sometimes you need to call out the junk.

00:02:17.070 –> 00:02:20.430
Get rid of the junk that and things you’re doing that, you really shouldn’t be doing.

00:02:20.820 –> 00:02:27.750
Things that are in business that just aren’t working. If you’re not making a profit on it and it’s now that’s what business is about. It’s not helping you.

00:02:28.440 –> 00:02:38.160
You need to look at something else you need to change your course. And so that’s the key, those who fail or those who adamantly hold on to something and never let go, in spite of the change

00:02:38.550 –> 00:02:44.550
Those who are smart, say, hey, things have changed the wind of change here. We got to move a little different direction. We got to adapt our strategy.

00:02:44.850 –> 00:02:56.040
Stay the course with your principles, but for your strategies, your tactics, the day to day operation adjust adapt improvise adapt and overcome.

00:02:56.550 –> 00:03:08.610
keywords that they train in the United States Marine Corps improvise adapt and overcome, and that’s what you and I have to do in business and so number five, the final one, I’d say stay

00:03:09.180 –> 00:03:14.190
Positive in the midst of everything going on, be realistic but positive that we’re going to make it.

00:03:14.520 –> 00:03:18.420
We’re going to figure out what it takes. I don’t know what’s going to take, but I’m going to get the tools.

00:03:18.720 –> 00:03:22.980
I’m going to learn the skills. I’m going to take the courses. I’ll enroll in the

00:03:23.250 –> 00:03:31.560
Online courses that are available today. There’s a lot of them out there. It’s a wonderful time to be around. I’ll hire the mentors. I’ll read the books. I’m going to do whatever it takes.

00:03:32.010 –> 00:03:40.260
And I’m going to get ahead, and I want you to embrace that now. So if you’re going through a tough time try those five principles and see how that works for you and I look forward to hearing from you.
