Don't stop believing
When you are down and out it is the best time to ------->
Review your play looking for leaks in your game
Remember what got you there (Usually Poor BRM)
Read new strategy, opinions, advice, hand history, ect
Ask questions (try to ask players with more experience/higher level)
If you take this time to analyze yourself while you scrape together a bankroll - you will do your game a great service.
Sitting around feeling sorry for yourself waiting for that next SSI check to come in the mail will do you no good that is for sure.
