There are many fears (discussed in the book), fear of success, fear of failure, fear of losing, fear of winning, fear of the unknown (a biggie), fear of rejection, fear of criticism and others which limit you in playing to the best of your ability.
These fears are insidious, because they lurk in the background just out of your awareness limiting you from attaining your true potential on and off the poker tables.
If you think you don’t have any fears, then let me ask you this – after the flop you make a sizable bet on a semi-bluff with outs lots of outs but just as your rasie hits the table the player to your left goes “all in.” Feel that – that’s what we are talking about here.
As with most players many are aware of some of them, but most of them reside deep in their subconscious just out of their awareness so they are unable to deal with them and eliminate them completely from their sub consciousness.
Fear generates all sort of physiological changes – muscle tension, heart palpitations, butterflies, irregular heart beat, sweat palms, fluttering eyes, dilated pupils, rapid pulse and breathing, panic attacks, nausea, and even scattered, slowed or rapid thinking responses, shakes in the hands, just to name a few.
Fear is actively “on call 24/7” for every hand in the game. It is therefore a major player in and of itself. Avoiding these issues indefinitely would mean resigning yourself to living in fear, missing out the chance to play some of the best poker ever!
