Hellboy

I have read many posts on BTC about this subject.  The top players focus on this big time.

I’m adding a quote from a very famous book that I have read many times over the years; this particular chapter regarding PERSISTENCE.  The four points are easy to read and comprehend, but of course harder to do.

I see point 4 as probably the greatest help to someone who ‘wants to get there’.  

This is where a BTC membership is a necessity.

YUP.

That IS what it takes.

And before you ask or take from others, make sure you are ready, willing and able to give 2x as much in return...

( keep it up, and that is when you will REALLY start to experience the true windfall of good fortune...)

Great reference Hellboy.  First discovered Napoleon Hill’s masterpiece when I was a very young man.  I can attribute many, many successes to specific passages in this book.  Highly recommend it.

I too had read that book a couple of time over the years and I agree with Hellboy and Way2Fast. While Baccarat is a new venture for me, my life has been "different" form most of the people I know. attribute that due to mental attitude. I highly agree with Hellboy in that a "friendly alliance" is an important point, but, I would have to rank persistence and giving back as per Kevin right up there from my point of view at the present time.

Giving back especially. Kevin is absolutely right. It is an intangible. It is not something you can see or touch. And for new people like myself, it may seem like you have nothing to give and therefore afraid to post by sharing your experiences. (I certainly feel that way at times because I feel small and insignificant next to the "much more experienced people" here on the forum.) However, I have the mental attitude that even though I don't know many things, my posting express the trials and errors I am having along the winning pathway and that is worth something, especially to other new people or to people who come to the forum after me.

And since this thread is about Mental Attitude (I am glad you thought to create this thread Hellboy as I think it will compartmentalize the "attitude" side of the game in one place on the forum), I still work for a living. On my desk is a desk calendar. At the beginning of every month, I write the following thoughts I picked up over the years on the calendar so that I see it everyday (I have others that also guide me, but, these have currently bubbled to the top for me):

Money Is Just An Idea.

Each Moment Is A New Opportunity To Make A Choice.

The Learning Is In The Doing.

Success Is A Function Of Mistakes.

Everything You Want Is On The Other Side Of Fear.

Live Everyday As If It was Your Last.

Yes A, I found Baccarat Mindset on Page 3.  Read it and it is great.  Should be read regularly. 

We all agree that Mindset is a big key to success in this game.

Should somehow be placed where it can be easily seen.  It is lost in Page 3 if you don’t know it is there, especially for new members.  Maybe Keith can help with positioning.

Wolfat, Hellboy.

Damn. That is good Wolfat!!!

For those of us who are new, here is the thread (or at least I hope it is - LOL):

 

Personally, I had not seen it or gotten to it yet. One can only do so much in a day. While I have been here on BTC a couple of months, there is so much content here that it is like a chicken and egg situation where which comes first - reading content/studying or playing? I still have not been able to go through all of the content, but, would have eventually gotten to it. :)

I love these posts but the time is coming where players new or experienced need to focus on a set plan or play and implement that action.  One of the biggest concerns I see in players everyday is the inability to excecute, or do what you are suppose to do. You may have researched a play that works 80% of the time on paper bets at home, but when the money bet time comes in the casino your subconscious mind kicks in and bang, you don’t place the bet, and it wins. This can go on for months or years and you become an expert in your own mind, but have nothing to show for it. Napoleon Hill said it as a ‘Definite purpose backed by a burning desire’ in other words ‘FAITH’ that what you have researched will work, otherwise why would you research in the first place.  The top players on this site, w2f, Wolfat, CT70, McVince and others have given us a glimpse of there play, ‘triggers’ etc to get us started on the right track.  These are proven strategies that work and can save you years of research.  It’s when you start to use one of these strategies and do what you are suppose to do that many more opportunities will start to hit you in the face.  There is an absolute ton of information on this site; you need a proven strategy, ‘trigger’, that is proven to work, and work that plan with ‘continuous action’ and then all the Baccarat opportunities with start to open for you. 

Money wise I’ve been down the $10 track, very safe but IMO useless.  $25 table will start to make you focus and believe. IMO.

Good advice Hellboy.  The inability to execute your plan is very common, and it is very easy to fall into this trap. 

I'm starting to see some new players bounce all over the place in their search for the winning formula.  Yes, there is a lot of information on this site and it is not easy to comb through it all and pluck out just those things that will work for you.  This is why Kevin presented 87%.  It is not the one true answer for mastering the game, but if you are looking for a way to play and learn while doing so it is a good choice for you.  Or pick one of the other easier methods:  VinSap, MC/LC, or MDB.   But no matter what you do, commit some time to learn it, practice it and then PLAY IT, all the while OBSERVING as you play.  Trying out some method you read about for a shoe or two in an on line casino, and then moving onto to another method and another.......this is not learning.  This is wasting time.  Commit yourself to something and observe and analyze where it works and doesn't.  You will learn a lot about events and shoe presentment while doing so.

I would like to correct a point on my previous post.  When I said $10 bets were useless, this came across as very arrogant and was not meant to be.  The context here was aimed at myself,  for when I played $10 bets and could afford a lot more, I was sitting on the fence and safe, but sometimes to grow you need to get out of your comfort zone and ‘practice what you preach’, especially to yourself. 

I apologize for any unintended criticism, and assure everyone that no malice was intended. 

Wolfat’s comments above were very appropriate, in that start small, get your confidence up, and then the Baccarat world could be your oyster.

These are some recommend books to improve your Baccarat game. 

This is such a mental game.  

When your mental attitude is right you win almost every hand - such an easy game. 

When your mental attitude is wrong such as ‘scared money’ or I’ll wait to see if this one wins before betting, then you seem to lose bet after bet and more. 

Reading some of this material and implementing will help.

All the above are available on Amazon.com at very small cost.  Depends on your ‘burning’ desire and how much you want it.

In my younger days, I spent a lot of time reading, listening to and attending most things related to self improvement. By doing this, I have developed my beliefs that shape and guide my life.

Today, I still read a bit, but, not as much as I used to. Currently, I am reading:

"The One Thing - The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results" by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan

In my enthusiasm, I would volunteer the little pearls of wisdom without having been asked. Then I came across a pearl that by volunteering, you are giving/dissipating your energy. It falls on deaf ears. Not surprisingly, when I stopped volunteering, I found nobody was asking either. So, I kept things to myself.

However........

On page 21 of this book was the following:

"This is the story line for extraordinary success stories. Passion for something lease to disproportionate time practicing or working at it. That time spent eventually translates to skill, and when skill improves, results improve. Better results generally lead to more enjoyment and more passion and more time invested. It can be a virtuous cycle all the way to extraordinary results."

Hmmmm............... Does this sound like anybody we know?

In the movie "The Last Samurai" the character played by Tom Cruise is struggling to learn the art of combat using a Samurai sword.   A young Samurai observing the struggle, made a very wise comment of his observation....."too many minds".   Thinking is good, but thinking about too much isn't good, until you have a well defined basic knowledge to build upon.  Even then, it is always best to take it one step at a time.  Patience and persistence is required.

As way2fast shared....."Commit yourself to something and observe and analyze where it works and doesn't.  You will learn a lot about events and shoe presentment while doing so."

Clear your head, and get out of your own mind, to learn the basic(s).  This is where no one can do it for you......you have to learn to do it for yourself.   

In learning something new, and I do struggle and become frustrated every time doing so in thinking too much......I always come back to......"too many minds".  Please note, I am not referring to anyone else.....I am only referring to what goes on in my own head.  I am not an authority on this subject.  All I can do is honestly, humbly, and gratefully share what I have learned and am learning.  A forever student here.
