A common imperfection with human beings in general, is their relatively short-sighted view on many different things. This is both due to our genetic imposition of having a ‘must have now’ mentality, and is further exacerbated by the culture of easy and free credit in which we live in.
Nothing in life comes free, and nothing in life comes without hard work and effort. If your way of thinking is aligned with a short-term belief structure, you will most likely encounter numerous hurdles in your journey. These hurdles at some stage will become too difficult to overcome, and you will either find yourself in what we like to describe as a ‘vicious circle’, or in a ‘death spiral’ bringing you back to reality.
But recognising such repetitive behaviour is key to your long-term chance of success in sports betting. When you start a new business you cannot expect riches overnight. When you begin a new relationship you cannot expect your companionship to not be without its ups and downs. We you play your weekly game of touch football, you cannot expect to outclass your opposition at every meeting.
This is what is meant by taking a long-term view on your sports betting activities. Recognising that the field will require an immense amount of time and dedication. Recognising that you will continually be tested both mentally and emotionally. Recognising that the path to consistent profitability is a journey in itself and not a destination. Due to its dynamic nature, sports betting is a continually evolving market. We as bettors need to adapt and continually hone our skills and work on our ‘edge’. We need to be able to separate our success by learning from the mistakes of others.
Taking a long-term view and allowing yourself time to develop as a sports bettor will contribute immensely to your level of success. Imagine for yourself just how much more pleasurable your betting will be once you are able to not only master your betting strategy but also your betting psychology. As with any field in life, patience and motivation is needed. A medical student must sometimes study for up to 8 years before they are able to be fully qualified and recognised in their relevant field. You as a sports bettor have to do all the hard work yourself. There is no bachelor’s degree or doctorate awaiting you. What instead you will find is a rewarding occupation, something where you ultimately have the ability to be your own boss, to choose your own working hours, and sometimes even location.
The opportunities are endless for the smart sports bettor. This field like any other requires a long-term timeframe to progress to a professional and ultimately profitable level. This is available to anyone who decides that this may be the correct path for them to follow. Do yourself a favour, put in the hard work, show discipline, recognise that miracles and riches do not come overnight, and prepare for an enlightening journey.
