Sometimes Things Go Wrong.

Things go wrong.

Sometimes things go horribly wrong.

You've planned and prepared and practiced -- and still things can go wrong.

There is nothing you can do about it.

You couldn't have anticipated things going wrong like this earlier and there is really no way to be OK with it now.

Things are bad and you're not really sure what to do.

So what do you do?

  1. Remember what's right with the situation.
  2. Learn any lessons you can from what just happened.
  3. Take time to breathe.
  4. Smile... (even when it hurts)
  5. Go hit something.
  6. Share your feelings with someone you love.
  7. Think carefully about the next step.
  8. Do something (anything).
  9. Resist the urge to blame anyone.
  10. Stay focused on your goal.

Bad things happen to good people.

There is no denying this.

And you thinking about "why" and "why me" just isn't a good use of your time.

Those questions are natural.  In fact, that sense of discovery is how our brains are wired.

Bad things continue to happen those who don't get back up.  To those who won't keep trying.

As bad as it might be right now, staying down makes things work.

If you don't get back up, if you don't keep trying, things will only get miserable.

You'll only feel worth.

Which is why you should keep trying.

Because it's only the real option that you have.

Things will go wrong for you.

It will get tough for you.

Don't spend your time looking around corners.

Stay focused on your goals.

Let the bad things come.  Be a bad-ass when they do....
