Has Becoming a Lawyer Helped Me As a Poker Player – There is great variety in all aspects of life. The only thing you can control is the decisions you make. You cannot be accepted by the perfect company with the perfect job for you.
You can only do your best to land that dream job, by studying, practicing and improving your skills. You cannot make the person of your dreams fall in love with you. You can only become the best version of yourself, and hope it will appeal to them.
And so it is in poker. All you can do is the best decision every time it’s your turn. If you choose smartly when to fold, raise, bet and call, every time, you’ll be the winning player. Even if you don’t win today, or tomorrow, if you consistently make smart decisions, you will.
However, the more you make smart decisions, the more likely you are to get an imbalance for them. If you make smart decisions in your job, you’re less likely to get fired, you’re more likely to be promoted, and more likely you’ll be happy with your job. The more you make smart decisions about how you treat your friends and loved ones, the more likely you will be happy in the relationship.
Just like in business and in life, you have to work hard, train hard, and keep working to improve your skills. Keep trying, keep working, study away from the desk, read, study and keep doing. Through this effort, you will make smart decisions. The winnings will eventually follow. Now, get out there, and play smart!
