"No one ever made a dime panicking," Cramer reminded viewers. Big selloffs like today will try your skills and your patience, but if you don't let fear force you out of good stocks, you'll reap long-term gains.

Cramer said as the markets nosedived early this morning, he noticed that Starbucks (SBUX) - Get Starbucks Corporation Report , an Action Alerts PLUS holding, was still up, and was tempted to lock in a gain.

But then Cramer remembered that Starbucks was already down on a bad quarter, as customers ordering via their phones overwhelmed baristas. Panera Bread (PNRA) had similar issues and the stock zoomed once those issues were resolved. And Starbucks is still a great long-term story.

In the end, Cramer said he stuck with Starbucks and will be better for it over the long-term. Sticking with winners is how you catch great stocks like Apple (AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. Report , another Action Alerts PLUS name, and (AMZN) - Get Inc. Report , which has exploded over the past few years.
