A Letter to Myself
Dear Me (when I was 20),
A little advice to you that I think may help in
the coming years.
1. Never take any gambling activity seriously.
It's the same as thinking you will grow up
to be better than Babe Ruth in baseball.
You can work and work and work at it,
you can get pretty good but making it to
the top of the mountain is unrealistic.
Instead, enjoy and celebrate your 'home runs'
as a hobby.
Remember that gambling is like playing a
carnival game. You can win every now and then.
But who are the biggest winners at the carnival
games, the tracks and the casinos? Open your
eyes, it's not the ones shelling out the bucks
2. Taking risks or gambling.
People who take risks based on knowledge, trends
or truth usually come out ahead most of the time.
People who take risks based on hunches, opinions
and selfish motives lose most of the time.
Risk takers (good gamblers) win, bad gamblers lose.
That's the difference. Always consider what is in
it for you.
3. Never take big chances or big risks with your money.
Whether you are gambling or investing, it is
always best to use as little of your own money
as possible. It is the only way to go from nothing
to something. This applies to all walks of life.
4. Live and work smarter, not harder.
Work harder than anyone else when you are in the
process of learning. Work smarter when you begin
working. Don't be the class clown or fool or loser
at work or play.
5. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
If you find a formula, a routine, or a strategy that
works well for you, don't change it.
6. The life cycle that never ends.
Every situation or relationship in life has an
objective or goal. There is also a starting date
and projected end date for each one as well.
You must also include boundaries and deal-breakers.
Once the objective has been met or the projected
end date has passed or failure has occurred
then realize it is over and draw a line in
the sand and hold your ground.
This advice won't get you a perfect life. But it will get
you to where you belong a lot sooner than if you hadn't.
Thank you for visiting. Hopefully
you will continue reading or
share this with someone.
Have a nice day! agtale.com
