Up Your Game By Taking Out The Trash

Have you ever taken a good hard look at how your gambling results show up? It doesn’t even matter if you are into poker, if sports betting is your thing or even if your prefer something so simple as online slot machine games. If you take a close look, you may find yourself experiencing ups and downs.

So far, so good, nothing new here. What’s this all about? It’s about taking a look at what’s happening between your ears when you go through the inevitable downswing. As you have undoubtedly noticed by now, your online gambling will go through up cycles and through down cycles. The key question is what are you saying to yourself when you find your self in a downward trend?

Do you find yourself beginning to doubt your strategies? The exact same strategies that worked just fine 2 months ago? Do you find yourself saying something like: “…I’m playing right, I’m following my proven strategy, but nothing is going right!” Or something like : “Darn, I haven’t even hit a draw in more than a week, what’s going on here?”

It’s about the psychology you are experiencing in your downswings that makes all the difference in the world. If you follow your downward trend with your thoughts and your mood, you will almost inevitably find your results getting worse and worse. In other words, you have to take control of your head and not get swayed by the results.

Really, think about it. This is gambling we are talking about here. There will be ups, there will be downs. However, its how you handle the downs that affects your long term success.

Have you ever payed attention to the most professional of the super successful poker players? No, not the grandstanders, not the camera hogs. No, the true professional. The one who takes a win, who takes a loss and doesn’t (at least visibly ) react at all. In other words, the professionals know how to take a loss.

Think about this in terms of boxing. A professional boxer can take a hit, in fact, he knows and expects to be hit multiple times in any boxing match. Likewise, the professional gambler can take a hit and keep right on playing.

How do you apply this to your gameplay? Simple, be like the pros. If you find yourself spiraling down a negative path after a downswing, just stop it. Toss that garbage out. Your results will reflect your ability to do just that.
