Venture Out – Aug 16, 2018

Today I will calm myself when I feel stressed. I will not allow myself to take any actions that I’ll regret later. 

In poker you learn how to be aware of yourself (your body, mannerism, image) and then control it.  Much like life, there is a benefit to understanding how people perceive you, and then taking action to crafting how you want to be thought of.  Of course we shouldn’t run our lives by how others think of us.  Rather, let’s be aware of what people think and then we can intentionally decide for ourselves what we want.

“When one has reached maturity…one will have a formless form. It is like ice dissolving into water. When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, he can fit in with any style.” – Bruce Lee


In poker, you should never show your hand unless you’re required to. Liv Boeree, professional poker player, gives one exception to this rule. If people think of you a certain way (for example, people think you look conservative), only show your hand if it reinforces that image. This tactic pays off when you play opposite to what people expect, you’ll catch them off-guard. Step one, understand your image, then step two, maximize it. Step three, apply to everyday life.  Listen to Liv here.
