VLOG: Who are you when "the chips are down"?
I think you can tell a lot about a person when they face adversity. It's easy to be our best selves when everything is going well, right? But that's not how life goes. It's a constant ride of peaks and valleys. The people I admire most handle obstacles with grace, strength, love and persistence. What's interesting about poker is that we can see the best and worst of someone in a single session. So let me ask you, how do you react when you get stuck? Get a bad beat? Get stacked? Are you someone you are proud of?
I have experienced this myself and the other night, I was caught at my worst.
In this video, Andrew and I share our own personal struggle with this, and how we use it to become better people.
The first step is awareness and recognizing your pattern of behavior. The second step is to recognize this as an opportunity to redefine who you are. And you can start small :) One decision at a time.
Let us know what you think.
