As humans we tend to have this systemized pattern of thinking that we already somehow won the game, that we haven´t played yet. You psyche yourself up to stay cool and confidant, when you already have these preconceived ideas that you are special and that you hit the big jackpot already. I remember every time I would buy a lottery ticket I would always pretend or really know that I wasn’t going to win. I mean what are my chances. Is god just looking right down at me and telling me I am the one? I am special. Well we would all like to imagine ourselves as special people with some kind of shooting star flying over our house every night spilling some kind of luck potion. Yeah, you and the rest of the world.
Don’t get me wrong. Staying confident and optimistic plays a major part in playing the game. On the other hand you can’t only rely on that strategy. If a prophet came to you while you where sleeping and foresaw your next winnings, I would say to you lay off the crack. Or if somehow on this planet that had happened, honey, 50 million people and I would be knocki’g at your door. It’s important to map out a personal gambling method that will work for you.
The first step is to ask yourselves a series of questions. What do you anticipate getting out of gambling? Are you looking for an entertaining and leisurely distraction from it all, or are you just an extra on film sets out of work, trying to make fast money to go on that trip to the Caribbean you have been boasting about for months? Are you the type of person that needs to play with a wad of doe in your hands in order to get your blood pumping, or does one bill make you shake like mad? Can you handle parting with your ” moola” or would that send you straight to the bottle? You have to decide on an amount you feel good about playing with according to your bank account. Are you capable of sticking to your limits, or in the heat of the moment you loose control, and do something you financially weren’t prepared to do? Or you may have the “yoyo” syndrome, as I like to call it, of changing your mind every single time you get some une’sy ‘eeling flickering in your head? The key is to ask how much self-control do I have? Remember these questions are key components to securing your success, or dealing with failure. So, before you set out on a “gambling crusade”, make a realistic plan for yourself that will suit you. In no time you will have created your own gambling method that will never fail you. And just think about that trip to the Caribbean you can really take. You will always be a winner. Have fun!
