Life principles as gambling principles? Why not? Life, after all is a gamble. So we can have some common life principles also applied to gambling, and even vice versa.
Education is the best investment. As in life so it is in gambling. Education or learning thoroughly the elementary and advanced techniques of a gambling game is the best investment. Many veteran gamblers advice to keep reading books on one’s choice of gambling game, and keep on playing with the gambling masters to learn from them.
Always keep a tight budget. Do not spend money that is not in the budget. The same thing goes for gambling. Settle a particular amount in the bankroll and make sure gambling expenses are within that budget. Once the budget runs out, that’s the signal that it’s time to call it a day.
Enjoy life. There’s more to life than just doing a job daily to earn a living. The same goes for gambling. There’s more to gambling than winning. If enjoying life means taking time to be with family and friends, and taking time to watch the details of life around us, then in gambling, it pays to take the family along and enjoy the other features of casinos. There are spas and shows, and shopping outfits in most casinos, among others. Also, taking the family along is one way of making sure that gambling expenses are kept to a tight budget.
Don’t cry over spilled milk. In life, this is a very positive way of looking at miscalculations and mistakes. Get one’s acts together and try again. In gambling, it’s wise to learn from past mistakes, pick up the pieces, and try again. Mostly, past mistakes in gambling are the times when there was too much over confidence and the unmitigated betting scraped the bankroll and house budget altogether clean.
Grow up. Life problems and trials are supposed to make us wiser and better persons. When we remain immature, it means we have unhealthy concepts of life. The same thing with gambling. We have to grow up and be more responsible gamblers. The main thing in gambling is to win. Win enough and be contented. Don’t fancy winning a fortune overnight. That’s kids’ stuff. A mature outlook is to be content with a win at a time.
Good life principles can be gambling principles that would help make gambling a discipline. And why not? After all, they say life is one big gamble.
