“Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther.” –  JP Morgan

“The wise man bridges the gap by laying out the path by means of which he can get from where he is to where he wants to go.” – JP Morgan

“Once we realize that imperfect understanding is the human condition there is no shame in being wrong, only in failing to correct our mistakes.” – George Soros

The skillset to be successful is not just having the set of technical skills to do your task well. Playing the cards is generally pretty straightforward, given time anybody can learn it. But the skill that allow you to keep playing, keep pushing yourself is extremely difficult. Why do you think people time and time again keep failing to achieve their goals in their lifetime? It’s because they don’t have what it takes to DISCIPLINE themselves to achieve it.

You are basically at the beginning of your poker journey. You need to learn to be disciplined. The following are basic things what I think a starting player needs to be doing to be successful:

a.) NEVER play games you are not bankrolled for.
b.) NEVER play tilting

It all pretty much sums up to being discipline to ALWAYS make good decisions for yourself. The STAKE is too great for failing, you don’t just fail at the tables, you fail achieving ALL things you desire. You fail at your goals, not just your poker goals but your life goals. And you WILL continue to fail until you learn to be disciplined. Learn it now or be a failure all your life.”   SirNeb on Card Runners

“The world of poker is fraught with dangers to one’s bankroll and mental health-a world where the individual has to worry less about the problems that others will cause him than the problems that he will cause for himself”  from Brandon’s Adams book intro, “Broke”

“From a finance perspective poker is a game of arbitrage. Collecting small edges of value thousands to millions of times. The value can be in skill, card/hand strength, position etc etc. All these go into the edge you have against the other players at the table. The issue is that when you’re making money by basically collecting “small”, big mistakes are destructive. Every big repeated error undoes alot of the good small decisions you’ve made. In the lower stakes games its these things that kill players.” Tiancai on Card Runners forums
