Important Obstacles Of Poker
Here is my list of the 7 most important obstacles that require your attention from the start:
Attachment to result :
Generally, when a recreational or a person who plays poker does it by hobby, enjoys the task itself and although the option to win is important, it is far from being an exclusive goal. He simply likes what he does and money is a secondary pleasure.
When you decide to start with this activity in a professional way a new focus appears, and it is the economic part.
This is the basis of the greatest number of problems that poker players face; In the moment in which you put the focus on the result, since a percentage of the success does not depend on you by the variance; It all begins with the problems of de motivation, feelings of injustice, tilt and negative emotions.
To overcome this obstacle I recommend practicing detachment to the result; usually consists of something as simple as not obsessing about the results and putting the focus on the task.
The complaint or the cry:
As you dedicate yourself to suffering, complaining and / or “crying” for every bad beat you have, I’m sorry to say that you’re in for a lot of suffering playing poker, as this will easily represent 60% of your day. You expect so much discomfort that it is already the case is a priority to attend. I invite you to consider hiring the services of a mental coach or assess if you rent (quality of life) / (economically).
To overcome this obstacle apply what you will find in the post and eliminate the complaint of your life.
Much could be said of tilt; This is the second reason I hire my services as a mentor and coach.
Ideally, the tilt does not appear, but at the very least we want to have techniques of this style to manage it and meditative techniques to eliminate the remains from one day to another. Nothing worse than starting a session with tilt remnants of the previous day.
To overcome this obstacle, practice mindfulness or some alternative meditation that you like and take a look at the video of emotional management.
Although it is difficult to appear at the beginning, whenever there is attachment to the result, you know that you are traveling a fast road to de motivation.
To overcome this obstacle emphasizes the solutions of the first obstacle.
