It’s not surprising.
We’re all human; I’ve committed the biggest whirlwind of retarded and impulse-fueled bets –either when I was up, or when I was desperate for recovery.
When our ego or panic inflates, we are all bound to invest more recklessly. Carelessness takes pilot.
Blind bets occur. We double up on the wrong matches. All the old bad habits reemerge – and this is when our ‘flow of streak’ goes wrong.
The rage to the impending recovery spirals out of control – and we create an even bigger mess.
If you want to change your long term habits, start with changing your identity.
Believe that you can perform at an all star pro level. You may not be there yet, but you can aspire to, and work towards this new identity.
