Today, let’s look at some fundamentals that may seem basic, but often are overlooked.

I. Getting Caught Up with Personal Winning and Losing Streaks:
Big losers sometimes get lucky, and those who’ve been successful, will have days that they would rather forget.

a) When things are going well:
I’ve met many gamblers who’ve gotten lucky on occasion, convincing themselves that they’ve now become the next Steve Jobs of the pari-mutuel industry. Then they get on public transportation to go home.

b) When things aren’t going well:
When we’re not winning, we can lose confidence and perspective.

Tips to start a new winning streak:
a) Don’t let a few losses change your wagering philosophy.
b) Shut it down for a day or two. Your life won’t change if you don’t wager for a few hours.
c) Envision your bankroll. It didn’t get this large because you were incompetent.II. Don’t be a fan.

Admit it or not, we usually overvalue our geographical allegiances.

When I first starting writing, one of my mentors was a sports journalism professor and editor for a major newspaper.

He told me that;
“To be objective you need to be less of an enthusiast for your hometown team.” I didn’t think this was possible. I had been a fan for 40 years. But…. in the long run it turns out to be prophetic advice.
