I just ran into one of my friends that lost a lot of money playing blackjack at the casino and we spent just spent an hour talking about it. During our conversation we talked about counting cards, strategy, and attachment to money.   My friend runs a successful business and he really knows how to keep money flowing and I have always thought of him having little attachment to money.  About an hour after our conversation I was thinking why am I was having this conversation with him today was it my time again to deal with my attachment to money.  As I kept thinking I asked myself could blackjack be a microcosm of life? After thinking about it for some time this is what I came up with…

Deal with what you are dealt- Lots of us believe that things happen for a reason and that doesn’t mean that we have to like it but it is important good or bad that we deal with it. Just because you are dealt a bad hand it doesn’t mean that you are gonna lose. Embrace what cards you are dealt shift your strategy for a greater good.

Know when to walk away- In blackjack the odd that you win are 51% the house and 49% you so why are all the casinos so big. Because people don’t know when to walk away from the blackjack table or we are so overwhelmed that that we totally let go of reason.  If you look at most good and bad business decisions hindsight is 20/20 if you look deeper than that there is always a knowing that most of use choose not to listen to. Good and bad can’t last forever listen to the still small voice inside of you and let others around you so the same.

Turn off the blame game- When he and I were talking about blackjack he said that people around him were making bad decisions that was a big part of why he lost money.   I can remember times even recently when I have blamed people around me for making bad decisions that have impacted me in a bad way.  Although this is a hard pill to swallow we need to make that part of the strategy leave room for are system that can be adjusted to fit the situations set before us.  The more we stay rigged and are unwilling to dance with outside elements the smaller probability of winning.  If you really think about it there is a high probability that people are gonna do what we expect so that is a good place to put your money, I bet you like those odds.
