Quotation Of The Week – Don’t Be Afraid To Learn?

First a quick reminder of what the ‘Quotation Of The Week’ award is all about:

The idea is simple: Every time I find a quotation that I think will add real value for my blogs readers, I will bookmark it and put it on my list to be the: Quotation of the Week.

I will then write a post similar to this one explaining why I have decided on that particular weeks Quotation.

I will also link to it from my Quotation of the week icon situated near the top of my side bar

My Quotation of the week award will be posted every Friday.

For a full list of previous winners visit my ‘Quotation Of The WeekPage.

This week’s winner of my ‘Quotation of the week award is:

“Studies have shown that learners who learn for the sake of getting better continue to learn and progress but that when a learner focuses on winning, they become fragile, eventually reaching a place where they stop improving because they are afraid of losing...

It took me a while to realise the significance of this great quote with relation to sports speculation, but the more I have read it the more it has dawned on me how powerful the quote really is.  My interpretation of the quote is :

“To progress, let go of results.
You have no control over the results.
You do however have control of your actions.”

I would recommend anyone to read Josh Waitzkins book called The Art of Learning: An Inner Journey to Optimal Performance as I believe the information within the book can be invaluable to sports speculators who are serious about becoming successful at their chosen pursuit.

I hope you have enjoyed this post
Stay patient
