Motivation of gamblers – where the secret lies?
What is one of the most important factors, which make a gambler grow professionally is his or her motivation? This question is asked by many gamblers – beginners or experienced professionals. Motivation can be present in multiple forms. Some gamblers bet with other gamblers, others track their own scores, the third group organizes gambling marathons. If to check the process of motivation as a whole, it takes its roots in laziness and inability to set the goals.
Who’s to blame and what to do?
Laziness is a part of everyone’s character, and it is set genetically. One can explain any of his or her activities with primitive laziness or the absence of action. In order to get rid of it, one must take gambling not as entertaining, but as work or business. The more a gambler plays, the more professional he or she becomes, which thus increases his or her chances to win. Realize how much time are you willing to dedicate to gambling. Except for the game itself, you must take into account the time you are going to need for education and self-analyses. If you program yourself to perform a certain sequence of actions daily, you will have no time for being lazy.
Procrastination is one of the sorts of laziness. The more you postpone, the more activities you have to do later and the more difficult it is to solve all the problems in one step. In case of gambling, this habit is able to make you lots of problems. If you study slowly and start applying the obtained knowledge too rapidly, you will automatically set yourself in a wrong position compared with a more organized opponent. Intensive work on yourself, which may still take short time, will leave you a possibility to practice the learnt lessons, that’s why it is important to realize: you need as much time for practice as you take for theory.
Excess of motivation is also a problem
If you keep on gambling day and night, you may become morally exhausted. As a result, you will start distracting for other not-related things like browsing the e-mail or reading the messages in social networks, and it will inevitably influence professional skills you are performing at the moment.
The lack of motivation is often linked with the absence of knowledge. It is obvious that having a basic knowledge, you cannot succeed in the game. Continuous education may stimulate you to keep on gambling, giving no opportunity to get tired. In order to make education process more diverse, a gambler may choose to study several variants of the same game or different strategies.
Setting the goals is another important moment. Not every gambler is able to realize what he or she expects from the game. At first stages each gambler realizes the success of the game by revenues he or she is getting. If this is the case, your interest towards the game will disappear sooner or later. The aims must be directly linked with the game. For example, they may be related with studying the types of bluffing or methods to read the opponent. Besides, you must always analyze your own actions – it will help you to save the level of motivation for future professional growth in gambling.
