11th short tip! One more to go of this article, stay tuned......
11. Cheer for your friends.
I want to warn you about envy. Many people don't want their friends to succeed. In gambling, I never feel envious of friends who are winning more than me.
I want my friends to succeed so they can share their secrets, so they can tip me off to better games in the future, so they introduce me to rich novices looking for a game--well the benefits are almost endless.
If your non-friends, well really your enemies, win, you don't get any of these advantages or even have any potential benefits.
It's the same in life.
The more friends you have succeeding, the more opportunities you'll have. It's just plain crazy, but common, to be jealous of your friends' successes.
They are paving the way for you, so enjoy it and be happy for you both!
