Poker Mindset Gift: A Different Way to Think

Just moments ago, I sent an email out to my subscribers. Instantly, I received a response from Earl who said, "Great email. Put a totally different spin on my poker thoughts. Thank you."
 
I love instant gratification! Thank you, Earl!
 
Frankly, I had started to send one of those limp messages about holiday cheer, but realized there was a huge poker lesson in what I had been experiencing over the last few weeks.
 
With the encouragement from Earl, I'd like to share that email message with you:
 
 
What do the holidays have in common with poker?
 
As I've watched people frantically prepare for the holidays over the last few week and declare, "I'm not yet ready… I don't have enough done," it reminded of how many poker players react to the bubble during a poker tournament.
 
They embrace their "not-enoughness" rather than figure out how to embrace the experience with joy and abandon. Yes, I said abandon.
 
Over the years, it has become increasingly obvious to me that the poker players who care the least about losing are the ones who most frequently win.
 
My holiday gift to you is a suggestion: Take a few moments over the next few days to acknowledge how you are already more than enough. Look at where you have won in your life. Recall that feeling the next time you are in a poker tournament and wonder when is the correct time to move all in.
 
While you are at it, keep a look out for an announcement from us next week about how you can take your poker game to the next level after the first of the year.
 
 

If you want to be one of the first to hear about our new poker training and poker coaching tips, just give me your name and primary email below. I always protect your information and never share it with anyone else.  You'll also get a FREE poker pot odds mini-course that I am getting ready to turn into a paid product:

Until next time, remember my motto,

If you can't raise, don't call.
