This week, we check in with The Professor for tips on being confident with your choices. Don’t second guess yourself. Let a loss go and stay positive!
One of the things I discovered when I started playing the races was that you must have a couple of traits to be a consistent winner. One of those traits is to have confidence, and also, be positive. You must believe that you are good at what you are doing.
Don’t be afraid to play the greyhounds you like, regardless of the odds. I believe in the saying, “if you are afraid of losing, you WILL lose.”
Another trait that is necessary is the ability to let a loss go and move on. This is where the term “resulter” comes from. A “resulter” is someone who is always complaining about the last race; they should have won, but didn’t. This promotes negativity and is a sure way to bankruptcy. Watch the replay of the race to see why your selection won or lost, learn from it, and move on.
This same principle holds true in sports. The players who are successful are the ones who can learn from a mistake, then forget about it and not dwell on the negative. Always try to be positive and you will reap the rewards.
