Use Positive Thoughts To Help Defeat The Casino. Really?

The power of positive thinking.  We’ve all heard it before, think positive and good things will happen.  I prefer to call it positive believing because at some point your thoughts must turn to beliefs which can then turn into reality.  If you simply stay at the thinking stage you will never turn them into reality.  You must fully believe what you are thinking.

In order to be a successful gambler you must have the right mental approach.  Many people believe this has absolutely no effect on whether you win or lose in gambling, I do.  Many believe that some people are just “lucky”, I don’t.  I believe that people who are lucky make their own luck.  Granted most of that luck comes from hard work and preparation, but some derives from a positive mind-set as well.

Every time you enter that casino you need to be in the right frame of mind.  Before you step into the casino you need to spend at least 5-10 minutes meditating.  You need to visualize exactly what you are going to do in that casino, including whatever game you will be playing and the proper moves.  Also, you need to visualize SUCCESS.  Visualize getting four wild deuces or a royal flush.  Visualize going on a five hand win streak with the count at plus 10 in blackjack.  This will not guarantee success, but I do believe it makes a difference.

The rational, practical part of my mind knows I will not win every time I go into a casino, but I try not to let those thoughts enter my mind when getting ready to gamble.  I make sure that I have the mindset that I am absolutely going to win every time I sit down at a VP machine or blackjack table.  I keep a clear positive mind-set through the entire session.

This meditation needs to be done at least 2-3 times a week as you fall asleep as well.  Forget about your other problems of the day and visualize sitting at your favorite video poker machine and being dealt a royal flush.  Be specific and use all five senses.  What suite is the royal?  What does the jackpot song sound like when you hit it?  Engaging all five senses, as if it is really happening, is very important.

I believe this has had a huge impact on the success of my gambling.  Again, I can’t prove it but in my heart I know it has helped.  Even if you believe that this had no impact on how many royals I hit, you can’t deny that it can only improve your play and life to implement these methods.

On this same note, do not go to gamble if you are extremely angry or preoccupied.  You are setting yourself up for disaster.  Among many other things you are more likely to make mistakes and become careless with your bankroll.  I understand that you can’t always be at your peak mentally, but stay away from the casino or betting when you’re in a negative state of mind

This method can be applied to other aspects of your life as well.  Whether it be your relationships with others or your finances, positive visualization will help improve your life.

Successful gambling takes complete dedication. Before you can become the greatest blackjack player to ever live, you must have already envisioned it in your mind. Not only envisioned it but lived it. Success is not an accident. It’s not something you stumble upon. Sure there are exceptions, but most stories of success start with a belief.

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
