Overcome Irrational Fears

How to Overcome Irrational Fears

Mark is a superstitious young man and struggles with how to overcome irrational fears.

He always loses whenever he’s dealt a certain hand. Every time he plays with this one particular dealer he’s destined for defeat.

We all struggle with unfounded worries and crazy superstitions, (which to us, don’t seem crazy!).
But it’s important to remember most of them have absolutely no roots in math or science.

Flying. Needles. Getting eaten by a shark.

They don’t possess any real danger (the chances of dying in a car accident is ten times higher than all these combined), yet they literally paralyze us from taking action.

In this weeks video I share one of my biggest weaknesses, and how, by using logic and the math that I’m taught in poker,
I’ve learned how to overcome irrational fears…. sorta :)

I almost lost it here, but thanks to my lovely wife, I made it through.

What are YOUR biggest fears? Are they really logical or have you been classically conditioned?

How to Make 2015 the Best Year of Your Life!

How to Make 2015 the Best Year of Your Life!

We’re 3 weeks into 2015… right about the time when most new years resolutions fade to black, and are put back on the shelf.

Today we break that trend.

I’ve received so many questions about how to make 2015 better.

“How do I improve at poker?”
“How do I make more money?”
“How do I travel more often?”
“How do I free up my time to pursue my dreams?”

It’s all the same. It doesn’t matter what you want because the ways to get there require similar steps.

Instead of focusing on one specific dream, I’ve systematically broken down the following:

* why dreams fail
* how to turn ideas into reality
* think outside the box to live, do and be whatever you want
* four simple steps to guarantee your success
* create a life of freedom, excitement and choices

Are you ready to make 2015 the best year ever?

Success happens now. Tomorrow is never.

Share this with someone you know and make a commitment to helping each other see your goal through until the end.

3 Steps to Turn Tragedy into Triumph

The 3 Steps to Turning Tragedy into Triumph

It was the winter of 2007, and I was on a MASSIVE heater. I had just won the largest tournament in online history for more than $250,000, then went on the biggest upswing of my career, crushing every game from $25/$50 to $200/$400 No Limit.

The result? I ended the year as one of the top 10 winners online with over a million dollars in earnings.

I did what every 20 year old would have done… took a break to enjoy myself! When I came back to poker, something changed. I could feel the energy was different. I lost my rhythm, and started to lose. Instead of doing what I should have done and take a break, I tried to “play my way out”.

It didn’t turn out well… Continue reading
