Look, 1000 ppl playing and only 54 get paid, someone has to loose, and this time it's you. After 99 bad tourneys can come the one, that you run very hot and deep, maybe win it. How do you know, if you don't keep playing?
Greetings. I apologize in advance for using the translator. It is important to understand that playing poker, like any other, requires certain knowledge. If you are talking about motivation, then you are experiencing specific emotions when playing. This is totally normal. We all want to achieve results in this or that business. I have to ask myself, what do I want to get out of playing poker? As entertainment, or maybe it's an alternative income, or maybe it's new interesting acquaintances. I understand that now you are describing a specific situation and in order to answer your question, I think you need to look at it more broadly. You can turn to the logical chain: why does motivation suffer? Because we are losing. What do you need to start winning? You need to train and accumulate your knowledge. In poker, there is such a thing as luck, but this is not the main component. Mastering the theory is extremely useful. Then put it into practice and not necessarily do it when playing for money. You can also hone your skills with play chips. I agree that there is not so much excitement in playing for chips, but this has its advantages - for example, you will not experience a loss of motivation so much. Personally, I motivate myself with my results. The more I master the theory, the better my game becomes. In practice, this is an axiom. And most importantly, the more knowledge you acquire, the more interesting it becomes, and accordingly, you become more motivated. I wish you success both in the game and outside it. Who seeks will always find.
Motivation after a loss is to set yourself up to start from scratch and at the same time be calm and internally balanced. Only in this way, in this state, emotions cannot prevail over you, since you control yourself.
Originally i just started playing poker as a friendly game with friends at home, no money. Then my local pub joined the redtooth poker league, i loved being a part of that league, climbing the table, winning pub trophies, qualifying for regionals in London, it was a thrill, didnt care about winning money. But even battling across the tables i still felt compassion for the other players, i always tried to play fairly and never enjoyed taking money from other player if i thought they were playing with their rent money, i know the whole point is winning money but still...
My motivation is to be able to live calmly without worries without debt, to be able to live happily, because of the pandemic I lost my job and thanks to poker I can pay to rent basic services and be able to live although not all the months are good so sometimes I have to save little by little that life is very hard, difficult here but thank God and I continued fighting I would love to earn a stable salary in poker to earn the same every month because a bad month I have to tie my guts
I live in the richest country in the world, where there are the largest oil reserves of gold, uranium, bauxite, diamonds, and many more minerals, where hunger and extreme poverty flood us, thanks to communist policies, in where a university teacher earns only $ 2 a month, that is why I have been evolving as a person, and as a competitor, I am a poker player, for more than 15 years as a player this is my way out of economic problems, which invade my country, and thank God, I keep fighting, and that is the reason I know that the Lord of the skies has something good prepared for me.
If you lose, don't bother, understand that you gave your best ...
Survival and dreams. Dreams to be financially stable and keep playing so I can help out random people I come across in life that really need help. Also so my son can have most things he wants and make it easier for him to enjoy life and teach him how to find himself and help others.
My movitations in the first place is to have fun. If Im in a loosing streak, I just need to find the fun in the game again, maybe read som new tactics that can be tried out.. if its not fun anymore, I need to take a break from the tables
