There Is No Fool Like A Careless Gambler Who Starts Taking Victory For Granted. – Hunter S. Thompson

It's About Positive Reinforcement

To be a successful gambler is a long, winding road without a map.

At times you may be on your hands and knees in the darkness with a feeling you are searching for the last casino chip left on planet Earth. You don't wake up one day to find you are a professional gambler. I takes years of living and learning. 

Most knowledge is built on trial and error. 

Then one day, you get a handle on something. A glimmer of light reveals something precious in the darkness. 

This happened with my brother and I a long time a go when we found our niche two-year-old horse racing. 

It's been a long, long road to understanding. 

You never stop learning. 

The best thing anyone can do in gambling and in life is build on the positives. If you don't have a reference point you don't have a starting point to work from. I can tell you this, without a niche you are lost. There simply isn't enough time in a day to know everything. I would worry if you said you wanted to do everything. Not only is it impossible it is pointless. When you can know one thing well, why would you need two?

You don't.

Building on the positives helps you move forward in a educated fashion. 

Even with building on the positives you will take one step forward and two back, before, in time, moving to the next level of understanding which, could, lead to you making money. 

The problem with most punters is that they never get to the point of understanding why they need to stick with what they know and enjoy. Without that passion, you will give up at the first time of difficulty or in frustration revert back to the good, old you which, sadly, knows nothing worth knowing. 

From what I have seen, this is the process of the majority of gamblers and reason why they never progress from that first bet often decades ago.

I often use the analogy of a student going to college for 30-years and finishing with the  same qualification as they started. While, your mate put his head on and is now a Dr of Horse Race Gambling with a hope and a prayer. 

It's your decision. 

But why when you are betting with your hard-earned cash wouldn't you want to improve your odds of winning?

It's ridiculous. 

I don't say those words to be critical because I want to help you. 

Gambling is as simple or difficult as you want to make it. 

The easy part is starting that journey on the right footing. From that point, you will need plenty of hard work to give yourself a fighting chance. 

If you can start from a positive or a negative, you know which of the two you need to focus. 

Build on the positives.

It will see you well.
