How To Win With A Positive Attitude!

Do YOU TREAT your gambling as a hobby, and record occasional but unspectacular wins? If so, here are some tips that will transform the way you bet - and enable you to show a regular profit!

Never be ashamed to bet. Remember: those who bet to make money are doing something positive. They are trying to improve both their own and, if they have one, their family's lifestyle.

But gambling is often frowned upon, and subconsciously this can have an adverse affect on punters. It shouldn't, as we shall see.

In the vast majority of cases, gambling is a harmless leisure activity. Unfortunately, the very few punters who lose everything and ruin their lives tend to give it a bad name. This is an interesting point.

There are plenty of other leisure activities that don't receive the same amount of criticism, despite a minority of their participants also indulging to excessive levels.

Drinking alcohol is a good example. Millions and millions of people enjoy a drink but only a very small number end up as alcoholics. Yet alcohol consumption is not seen in anything like the bad light gambling is!

The point here is that gamblers, whether they are successful or not, should be no more ashamed of their activities than anyone who enjoys a drink. Or, for that matter, anyone who indulges in any other leisure activity.

That point established, let's now look at ways in which a positive mental thinking attitude - the right frame of mind, in other words - can help punters way to win.

Forget About Luck

First and foremost, all punters should banish the word "luck" from their vocabulary. Yes, sometimes you'll suffer bad luck. But sometimes they enjoy good luck as well. In the long run, good and bad luck balances itself out.

Trouble is, punters tend to dwell on any ill fortune they suffer, while completely forgetting the times things have gone well. An example of this came during the late 1990s.

At one of the summer's top class meetings a leading jockey dropped his hands a fraction early in a prestigious race.

As a result, his horse finished second when it should have won. The horse that did win the contest was a 7/1 shot - as was the unfortunate runner-up.

As you can probably imagine, after the race the jockey who made the error was punished. Despite this, the next day the racing media went to town.

Quotes abounded from punters who had missed out on big wins because of what had happened.

Later on in the week, however, accompanied with much less publicity, it emerged that a couple of punters had landed big wins through being on the winner of the race.

That this demonstrated was how bad luck for one set of punters meant good luck for another.

Of course, had the horse that should have won been a hot favourite, as opposed to being the same price as the one that defeated it, things might have been different. The principle would have remained the same though.

So, as a punter you need to become philosophical. Each bet, whether it wins or loses, needs to be treated in the same way.

Through taking a detached and calm view you will find your judgment over your next selection unaffected. This is crucial.

Remember: You're A Professional Punters

The next piece of advice is this: in order to profit from gambling you must treat it as a professional activity, or as a business.

This doesn't mean you can't enjoy it - plenty of people enjoy running their own businesses - but it does mean you should stop approaching your betting as merely a "hobby".

As a punter you are a professional investor. Okay, you might have another job, but those who make financial profit from any activity can be regarded as professionals.

Punters are no different from those who invest on the stock market, except they choose to try and predict the outcome of sporting events rather than find companies that are doing well.

Think of yourself as a professional investor and you'll soon be surprised at how much better you start to feel about your punting. You'll find yourself taking pride in winning and becoming desperately anxious not to give back your profits to the bookies.

Develop Your Willpower Personal Training

Develop willpower over your betting and the battle will be half won. Willpower is one of the keys to adopting a positive mental attitude about your gambling.

Unfortunately, many punters find willpower a difficult thing to come to terms with.

Make no mistake, willpower is crucial to success in any field, and those who say they do not possess this quality are talking nonsense.

Willpower is simply the ability to make yourself do something you don't want to do. When gambling, this may be calling it a day at the betting shop when you've won (or lost) a pre-set amount of cash.

Or, it could mean deliberately ignoring an obvious looking favourite and searching for some each-way value instead.

Perhaps a good way of exercising willpower with your betting is to start using it in small doses. Only bet in, say, three races per day or only at weekends or starts today betting with free bets.

Then, when you've got into this habit, start setting aside a maximum amount of money that, win or lose, you will stop betting at.

The great thing about willpower is that once you become accustomed to using it you won't want to stop.

It won't be a conscious thing either. It's generally accepted that after about three weeks of doing something on a regular basis you become subconsciously adjusted to it.

So, if you manage to stick to a certain way of betting for three weeks you might well find you've cracked it.

For those who doubt the merits of the case, there is a non-betting way of proving the point. Plan to get out of bed 30 minutes earlier every day for the next three weeks.

If you show enough willpower to accomplish this, chances are you will be able to carry on in the same way for the rest of your life. Similarly, if you get into good betting habits they will stay with you.

Pulling It All Together

To conclude this article, let's look at a way that all the advice can be pulled together.

First thing to do is find yourself a betting system you are happy with (we'll be featuring the best ones in future issues of A Sports Betting Tips.com).

It doesn't matter what it is, just as long as it is credible and based on sound principles.

Then, put in place a financial target. This needn't be a large amount, just enough to make you feel you are working toward a reachable goal.

The amount will depend on your base stakes but, generally speaking, £1,000 is a good figure to start with. With a credible betting system and a realistic target you've got a firm base. Next, do not be ashamed of what you are setting out to do. You are trying to win £1,000. That £1,000 will be of benefit to you and there's nothing wrong with trying to obtain it.

Once you start betting, be philosophical about losers. Simply think that each loser you suffer puts you a bit nearer the £1,000. How so? Well, think like a professional salesman.

Top salesman work out how many calls they need to make to sell one unit of whatever they deal in - be it garden chairs, financial plans or whatever.

If they sell their product on every fiftieth call, they regard each unsuccessful call along the way as a step nearer their goal.

You must do the same when betting. Each loser puts you nearer the next winner.

Providing you are using a credible betting / staking system your £1,000 profit figure will move nearer every time a selection wins, regardless of the losers that occur getting there.

It takes bit of lateral thinking to put you in this frame of mind, but it's worth it

Thinking Positive Really Works

At this point you should now be in a positive frame of mind. It's that frame of mind you must condition yourself to staying in throughout your quest for the £1,000.

Some of your selections will win and some will lose, but it is reaching the £1,000 target that counts. Do not be depressed by unlucky losers and do not be carried away by good winners.

Whatever the fate of each selection, simply be professionally minded enough to keep in your mind the £1,000 winnings.

When you do finally hit the target, treat yourself.

Whether the 1,000 is going to help you payoff debts, whether it's going to be used for betting capital or whether it is going to just sit in the bank, keep a little back to reward yourself for what you've achieved. Then, start all over again.

Set a new target and forget luck. Be philosophical, show willpower and think of yourself as a professional investor. Above all though, don't be ashamed of what you are doing.

In fact, be proud. Nobody should ever be ashamed of honest endeavour to make money. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
