There is an old saying which goes something like, ‘If you think you can or if you think you can’t, you are usually correct’ and nowhere is that saying more apt than in the world of gambling.

If you go into the casino or racetrack for instance and are of the opinion that there is absolutely no chance that you will win, well, you’ve guessed it; the chances are that you won’t.

I’m obviously not saying that all you have to do is to think that you will win and you will, but, it is so vitally important that you are in the right frame of mind before you place a wager with your hard earned money.

To emphasise the point, let’s take a look at an example. You are getting ready for a visit to the casino when an argument starts between your children. This soon gets out of hand and before you know you have raised your voice at them, doors are slammed and you feel awful.

You decide to carry on with your visit to the casino but you are just not in the right frame of mind. All it takes is a couple of potentially winning blackjack hands to go against you and what was promising to be a wonderful evening is turning into something of a nightmare.

Even the most careful of plans can go wrong and this is just what life is all about but the successful gambler will be able to identify when these kind of things happen and will have the sense to scale things down a little when their mind is on other things.

If you don’t do this there is always the possibility that you could go ‘on tilt’, chase losses and throw caution to the wind. If you fall into this trap, the initial reason which put a downer on your mood will seem like a drop in the ocean and really is the last thing that you want to happen!

Don’t let a bad mood put a dampener on your gambling activities because it could end with disastrous consequences.
