Why Working On Your Poker Mindset Is The Best Thing You Can Do Right Now


Having a good strategy in poker is important to crush the games, but there is more to it than just learning how to play in the most profitable way possible.

Most of our decisions are driven by emotions, which means having a calm and relaxed mind even in stressful situations is the key. Becoming reactive or tilted in poker can cost you a lot of money over the long run and also has a huge impact on your results.

Here are 3 reasons why you should start working on your mindset today:ย 

๐‚๐จ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ž๐ญ๐ข๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง:

A player has to keep in mind that your rivals are coming up with better strategies to win.ย With all the free videos, articles and software out there pretty much everyone can get to a decent level without spending much time on it.

Studying a few hours of poker theory doesnโ€™t improve your win rate as much as it used to 5 years ago. At the same time, many poker players, even the professionals, havenโ€™t really worked on their mental game yet. So I think improving your mindset & performance can give you a huge edge against your competition. (Thatโ€™s why I decided to work with my clients for 10 weeks, so I can help to grow tremendously within this time.)

Itโ€™s surprising for me that a lot of athletes donโ€™t work with a mental coach, even though there is so much scientific evidence that your mindset can improve your performance and the results that you are getting.

The poker economy is in constant change. There are new rules and regulations coming up multiple times a year. Being able to deal with constant change and uncertainty is a very valuable skill to have. Not just in poker, but in life in general.

It doesnโ€™t matter how much you work on yourself, there will always be situations in your life that you canโ€™t control. Being able to deal with those means you are able to focus on your behavior and that is something you can control. It also means that even in negative or uncomfortable situations you can be calm and relaxed, which helps you to achieve great outcomes.

Usually your business or your behavior on the poker tables is a mirror of your life. If you are undisciplined with your poker studying / routines, you probably are also not the most disciplined person in life in general.

So, the better the quality of your life, the better your poker game will become. Everything in life goes hand in hand. There are no separate areas that you can improve. Improving one area of your life means you are also influencing other areas as well.
