What is proactivity?
Proactivity is the behavior of anticipation and accountability for own actions and choices facing the situations imposed by the environment ", ie, being proactive means taking in his hands the responsibility for their fate, whether in life or in a poker session.
Obviously, both in life and in tournaments there are factors we can not control.
With great frequency, great players go to showdown before the last letter with the best equity, but not always finish winning the hand, it is not always that equity is 100%.What they do to be eliminated or losing a lot of chips in a bid gambling by a technically inferior player (who probably did not play well the hand) is not be whining, wondering how it could all have been different if the outcome is another, cursing mentally the player who eliminated them. The best have a resilience (ability to overcome obstacles and resist pressure) very big and know that it is no use whining. They get so angry at the moment, but its proactivity with respect to that feeling makes it last a few seconds, and then are already focused on the more important it is to play your best game, actively choosing how they react to unexpected results.
The opposite of proactive is reactive. Usually this is the main feature of the worst players. The fact that a table has a direct influence on your performance and phenomena as the bad beats impress both earning absurd power to affect your mood and consequently make play worse because the memory of negative results is like a ghost weighing and playing tricks on their cognitive capacity.
I would like to know the opinion of you friends!
Good luck to all ...
