Poker Mindset Follows Your Words

Poker players often exist in the middle of a whirlwind of emotions. They are ecstatic when they win and in dispare when they lose.
 
The rub is that if you are a tournament poker player, the vast majority of the time you lose. That is, IF you consider that you win ONLY when you win first. If that's you, then take up bowling and forget poker.
 
Winning at poker is far more than how much cash is in your pocket when you walk away from the game. How many poker winners do you know that are miserable? I bet a lot.
 
In the long run, this is what is really important: How you look at your experience at the poker table and how you use that time you invested to better your life.
 
Everything is energy. Your house, your car, a tree, a dog, your actions, your thoughts, your words. Everything.
 
The words we choose create a vibration around us. When we vibrate at a high level, we pull positive experiences to us. When we vibrate low, we pull disaster.
 
That's quantum physics. I didn't make this stuff up!
 
Poker Mindset Exercise
 
Imagine someone asks you, "How did you do the last time you played poker?"
 
What is the instant answer that comes to your mind and out your mouth? "Fine" or "Just ok" or "You won't believe the bad beats I took!"
 
On the other hand, regarless of what happened, do you think and say, "I played great!" "Played my A-game!" "I had a wonderful time!"
 
Take a moment and say these words aloud: "Fine; Just OK; I took a bad beat."
 
Notice how you feel inside your body. Do you feel flat and discouraged? Is your energy low?
 
Now say these words with conviction. REAL conviction: "I played my A-game; I had a fantastic time. Why am I such an AWESOME poker player?"
 
How do you feel inside your body? Do you feel better? Is your energy higher? Do you feel uplifted, REGARDLESS of what actually happened?
 
Everything is energy. The words we choose have a meaning to us and create a vibration inside us and around us. They are clues to what we are creating, whether we are doing it consciously or unconsciously.
 
For many poker players, looking at their cash winnings and bracelets is the only way to keep score. There is a better way.
 
The next time someone asks you about your poker, what will you say?
 
Before you answer, take a deep breath and bask in your abundance.
 
Until next time, keep my motto in mind:
 
When you can't raise, don't call.

    I hear a little "Law of Attraction" in there courtesy of Joyce Lee.

      Hi Pam, thrilled to see you here! I’ve been practicing the Law of Attraction for nearly 60 years, sometimes consciously and other times unconsciously. I must say that I prefer conscious creation!

      Many times when I see Joyce Lee’s inspirational messages, they are perfectly aligned with what is on my mind. There are no coincidences… only divine appointments.
