Life is a business in itself where risks and rewards come alternatively. And did you know that life gave us many business lessons even while we were busy playing hide and seek in our childhood? If it is that tough to believe, then fast forward to the present and come to a gaming form of adults. Quite contrary to our understanding of low limit poker, sit and go games have a regular feature, which is the unending patience of the players involved in the game. There is no doubt that every time there is a game of sit n go poker, you are in for long hours of poker. But what is more important is winning a decent amount of money at the end of the day just like sustainability in life and business is a crucial factor in your success.
Play Time Is Patience Time?
So, in spite of the heavy routine, it is more important that you have loads of patience while at the game. This is similar to our most important situations of life. The basic decisions in life are often made swiftly. However, whenever we need a quick decision we forget that we need a complete summary of what can happen in the long run. When it is time to take a decision with long term impacts, we are held up with all major considerations and this readily resembles life at a sit n go poker tournament. Like in life, the chances of winning are unsure, and the rewards are not so high. But patience is a must.
Life, Poker, Business and The Need For Patience
Like in poker, you will have loads of bad beats to overcome in your way to becoming a winner. The main objective is to stay put no matter how hard the conditions get. Just as it happens in life, a lot of participants of the game in the same lines of people whom you hold dear in life, will try to pull you down and call your game down. While you cannot ignore them, you will have to decide for yourself what is good for you and what you want to achieve. Thus, no matter who stays or who leaves your side, you are the one to decide whether you want to listen to anyone.
The Ups And Downs…and The Re-growth
In business, the story is different. People who leave you here are stakeholders and partners, and while you are in your lowest ebbs, you will have to keep up with the changing demands of service providers hired by you. For example, the latest CRM package you are able to afford might be much simpler than what you have traditionally used. But like in life and in poker, the change in services must be patiently decided keeping your best interests in mind, alongside giving a patient hearing to the customer feedback. Yes, changing carefully in to low investment schedules only helps you rise back after the fall.
The days when we are lowest on our spirits are those when you are unable to hit jackpot, win a good pot or even bluff your way to a decent win. Similarly, when life gives you those hard times, keep the spirits high by folding away from its morbidness, and lay back and watch others win with loads of patience and positivity. The next morning will come with a new idea and a new opportunity giving you all reason to change your attitude, adopt a new perspective and simply move away from defeat or failure in an all new style. And do not doubt the number of options coming your way.
Change Fuels Patience!
This Christmas brings with new hope and promise. If 2014 has been a tough year for you, let not the blues ruin your 2015. Greet friends and family in an all new style with bright messages or give them a coveted gift as a surprise. Nothing is impossible after you have that loving kiss of gratitude on your cheeks.
So, go ahead, create a new season this Christmas and glow with patience and perseverance, in life, business and ahem…poker. ‘Cos in life and in business, we all have low limits..don’t we?
