When we feel something solid up ahead, stop trying to push through. We cannot win at poker until we correctly perceive these signals. - Larry W. Phillips

Your mental state of mind is absolutely the most important factor in being a successful player. It's amazing how much of an effect your state of mind has on your play.

Do not focus your attention on your negativities (sic) but on your dreams, and never let go the flame of hope. Your hope might be unrealistic and irrational, but keep on hoping. Make your hopes and dreams be your tugboat, pulling you along. - Chin-Ning Chu
