TIP # 10, ALMOST THERE, STAY TUNED!!
10- Save your A-Game for times when you ARE running good.
In skillful gambling, when your luck is running bad, opponents often become inspired and play better. You're no longer a force to be reckoned with in their minds.
Most of your fancy plays won't work because you've lost the intimidation factor, which is fundamental to many aggressive strategies. At these times, you should become a more timid player.
In life, do the same thing.
Sometimes in conversations or in business, things aren't really clicking and you're losing ground. You can feel it happening.Your image is wrong for asserting yourself, so--if possible--just lurk and don't take a stand yet.
Many people desperately try to prove themselves when they are at a disadvantage, but they ought to just sit silently. As a bonus, this silence often seems like strength to others.
Repeating: When you're at a disadvantage, or you're just not in sync, wait it out. Wait it out. Wait it out.
Sooner or later an opportunity will come, and then your decisions can be successful profound ones.
