n our lives events occur that are beyond our control and which we cannot control with all our desire. But we can control our reaction to these events, and in principle our attitude to life and what we do. f you think you have something will not work, thus you start in your own mind this "prophecy." You will begin to adjust your other thoughts and actions under this "prophecy" to prove to yourself that you really can't reach. You start to make less effort and make more mistakes simply because at some point, you lacked confidence in yourself or your abilities and you decide that you can not afford.
Therefore, it is necessary to get rid of such type of thinking, and if you take something to carry, up to a limit, increase the number of tables, play longer sessions, or something like that, then you must believe that you are capable of it. Just start telling yourself that once you come means you can.
In poker there is an element of luck, which is not to blame anybody. Babbity, cooler and downswing is an integral part of the profession you have chosen on their own initiative. Your thinking is able to help at the tables, or, conversely, to reduce the performance. The choice is yours.

Good points, but it does feel a little copy pasta.
I agree that there is an element of luck, but also need to learn from their mistakes and errors rivals. And to believe in yourself.

Agreed there is a factor of luck but that should even itself out over the course of time. Putting yourself in consistently good situations will prevail. If you lose, rate yourself not on the outcome but how you played at each point getting there. Sometimes you do it all right and still lose, sometimes you do it all wrong and still win. Be honest with yourself. yet still, I have suffered from loser mentality and take some time away to get my head straight.

re: Poker & Do you have the mentality of a loser?
Thinking too positively, have a game of poker to be even less pessimistic if we want to have a successful gram. Otherwise we hit the top of the door frame.

We need to think positively. Not only in poker, but in real life. If you believe in the fact that all will be well, and good luck will be with you!
