Why do play poker?
I constantly keep thinking to myself, what it takes to succesed in life, What does it really take? Is it a good plan, education, money, personality, ambition, determination (the will to never give up regardless of how bleek the times may get), power, fame, so really what is it all about?
I can't speak for u all, but I could speak for myself, I think the key to life is wealth, because it's funny is'nt, wealth puts u in a commanding postion, there-fore letting u have power by having ppl run your companies, which then leads u to accumalating more wealth which puts u in a higer/wealthier domain, which leads u to becoming friends with more powerful ppl, your family memebers are all happy, no-body can tell u nada, and u can tell everybody, everything u choose, when u choose! Now some of u might be thinking well even with all your wealth without education, ppl can still outsmart u/con u out of your wealth, but here's the thing, for a person to become rich means that person had to have some sort of talent to making money in the first place, and a good plan, correct? Motivation, determination, and ambition all go hand in hand when it comes to making money correct? There-fore meaning your an all around person correct? Many ppl have told me that life is'nt about money but the precious times spent with your "Loved" ones, and the "Little" things in life. Really? Would'nt we all be better of if we all were more wealthier, more wealth means more times spent with your "Loved" ones, and less time stressing over little things, which leads me to my main purpose for this whole thread, in online poker I've come across many ppl stating they only play poker for "FUN" Wtf kind of horse-shit is that, is it really "FUN" we u lose all your money? Is it really "FUN" When u have to go back to your bank account to feed your poker needs once again, and then lose all your money? I don't think that's funny at all, not one bit. When I play, yes I take it very serious, yet for some reason or another my seriousness at the tables die down when I'm up, and then they start up again when I'm broke , I know it's very confusing, why I do what I do, when I'm and up and when I'm broke is mind twisting, but I'm telling u all I don't play poker to get a fix, I personally play to make alot of money one time, and relax, maybe a cool Sunday Mill would help make me relax , but I really doubt since my hungar for wealth and power are in the ranges of the 100mill and up mark, will I make it I highly doubt, but poker is a start for now......
Why do u play? and if it is for "FUN", can u just plz explain what u exactly mean by it! Ty all
