PA Principle Week 31

You Have to Go All In

“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person” - Albert Einstein

A lot of poker players say they want to be the best.

They want to play the highest stakes in their format and be one of the very best players.

To reach these levels requires a monumental effort and their full dedication for a number of years.

They have to give their all to the game, master their habits, routines and mindset, whilst constantly trying to improve.

There are no guarantees of success and they have to learn to deal with the feeling of uncertainty better than almost anyone on the planet.

It’s scary to aim big and risk failing, that’s why most people play life small.

It’s easier to live life comfortably, watching from the sidelines whilst never really giving it your all.

You can tell yourself, “I could’ve done that if I had tried harder” which allows you to feel better about not having the success you really wanted.

The scary thing is, you are probably right!

You COULD’VE had the success you wanted if you had put your all into it.

And isn’t that a sad truth to take to the grave?

We are all capable of almost anything we dare to dream of.

But only a very small few ever put it all on the line to see how far they can go.
