Hello and Welcome to my ‘Quotation Of The Week’ Page

No matter how passionate we are about the challenge and potential rewards of speculating in the sports betting markets, by its very nature there will always be times where things do not go our way, also there is no getting away from the fact that ours is, on the whole a lonely pursuit. Little wonder therefore that we can be susceptible to being negatively influenced by the psychological pressures involved.

There are lots of different strategies that we can employ to negate these influences such as joining forums, reading books/blogs and attending courses.

I believe that one of the most powerful strategies to use, is to pick the brains of some of the most brilliant and intuitive individuals that have ever lived. You may be wondering how we can do that, well it is very simple; we use the power of quotations.

Quotations distil the essence of wisdom from experts in every field of endeavour, they can be used to magnify our focus, motivate us, educate and entertain us.

Just reading a short quotation can re-energise a weary speculator, motivating them to achieve more, become more disciplined or simply calm them down after they have experienced a particularly nasty shock in the markets.

There will be people reading this article who will be saying; “Here we go, Mark is spouting his motivational clap trap again”.  If that is their attitude that is fine, they need read no further, but for the rest of us though, I will carry on ;-)

I believe that anything that helps sports speculators stay emotionally focused can only be a good thing and should eventually filter down to the results they achieve.

Anyway, I’ve had a think and I have decided that the best way for me to capitalize on the power of quotations is to dedicate a weekly post to them, whereby I intend to start posting a ‘Quotation of the week’ post.

I will only post up one quotation each week, so as to magnify the power of the quotations message through the lens of extreme focus.

I will post the “Quotation of the Week” every Friday, which by the way is not a day I have picked at random, I believe that the maximum impact of the quotation can be achieved by posting it on a Friday, because hopefully its message will still be fresh in our memories at the weekend, which is traditionally the busiest time for most of our speculating (punting/trading) Activities.
