"What is your biggest challenge at the poker table?" is frequently how I first connect with a new friend on Facebook. You see, I'm doing research for m y book, Life Lessons from Poker™, and I find that people share amazing insights when I simply ask.
My Facebook Friend, Caryn:
Some people blame their losses on being unlucky, other people, bad beat stories. These tend to be people who won't take responsibility for their actions. Others can use this information as a tool to better themselves at the poker table and in life.
"Was I too impatient? Did I act in retaliation or from an emotional place? Did I make it personal?"
When we take the game and apply it to our lives, we can gain insight into how we are as people, how we deal with adversity, and if we are smart, how we can learn and apply this knowledge on and off the felt."
Thank you, Caryn, you enrich my life!
Remember my motto,
If you can't raise, don't call.
