MLB isn't worried about a pitcher that wants to bet on himself against a bad team. MLB is afraid that the pitcher will make relationships with bookies, could possibly lose money, and then play differently or provide inside information to pay off debts. With team sports in general it isn't about betting on yourself or why didn't you bet on yourself, it is just the hovering cloud of impropriety too. For instance Pete Rose bet on his team many many times. When he was a manager did he overuse his bullpen to gain a win on bet day?
Second point is that players can bet on themselves in some sports. Depending on the country you are in it can be legal to wager on yourself on tennis heard many players doing this on tour , golf, and boxing - and I am sure there are many more. I partially agree with you. But I think they're not allowed to because people would watch and see when they DON'T bet on themselves to win.
Then of course that would be noticed by everyone making bets and mess with the gambling world, plus it's suspicious when you don't bet on yourself. That could definitely be used as evidence in court of someone shaving points on a game or throwing it. He bet on himself every single game except this one.

There is no one else in the world like you. The unique set of skills, talents, knowledge and personality that you have is what makes YOU uniquely designed to achieve this specific vision. It's a perfect match! You just have to dig into it, dissect it, study everything about it. Identify who currently does it well and then learn how you can make it the best. Knowing breeds confidence and confidence speaks for itself. Now you don't have to know everything to bet on yourself, but you will have to grow and get better every single day.
Success in yours for the taking People crave the product or service that you have to offer, and they are waiting to pay you for it. They just haven't found you yet. Betting on yourself means showing up and getting visible. No one is going to knock on your door with a massive amount of success. You have to put in the work and go find that people that need you; solve their problems, and voila!
Let's be honest. It is much easier to sit on the couch, watch tv and be comfortable. The simple fact that you are reading this article sets you apart from the crowd. Now take it a step further, bet on yourself and claim the success that is waiting for you! You owe it to yourself Bet on yourself because you deserve it. It is risky to get uncomfortable and decide to be the maker of your own fate.
But who else do you trust more than yourself? Nobody else can do it for you. You will even surprise yourself along the journey once you let go and just go all in! Get out of your own way with fear, doubt, and negativity. Instead imagine the possibilities and be confident in your ability to win! It would be a shame to always think about the "what-ifs". Nope you're better than that! So, what are you waiting for? Don't prolong your success any longer. Take the chance and bet on yourself!
All of the super successful people you admire have done it. That's why they've achieved huge accomplishments and accolades. They now live their dream life because they made a decision to bet on themselves. Make the decision and commit, it's that simple. Get on the fast track to success. Your future self will thank you! Remember "You got this! US Edition U. Coronavirus News U. As I mentioned earlier, all of your decisions in the past have answered exactly what you are willing give.
Most people look for complexity in places where simple equations would eliminate confusion. I lost some, and won some. I bet on myself, and was mathematically proven to win over the long term. How could I possibly expect my bets to pay off in a similar way to theirs? The game is the same now as it was then. Those who continually pass up opportunities to bet on or invest in themselves remain blind to the goldmine of opportunities that surround them.
Throughout the process occasionally bet on yourself. Every action or inaction you take WILL lead you somewhere. Each one of us starts the game as an entrepreneur out with a coin. You are going to flip this coin every time you make a bet. The coin will not go your way every time. You will have some variance; the lesson is to get used to it. Each time you play the game you will be handed the same coin, but it is not quite the same anymore.
In the game of business, the coin becomes weighted in your favor the more you play. The reason being that your knowledge acquired from past failures, coaches or mentors, gives you an edge you did not have before. You would never stop, and by doing this would end up very rich. It would be mathematically impossible not to be. Some never bet at at all. Once you flip, you will never play the game the same again. Placing bets reminds me of what Nassim Taleb calls Barbell Strategy when it comes to investing.
This is such a paradigm shift and a great way to make the point. That phrase alone has totally changed my perspective on life. Absolutely amazing Article that everyone should really get a chance to read this article. Billy keep up the good job! Hey Billy, are there blogs you regularly read? Or other websites which are similar to yours?
In terms of stuff I regularly read, nothing right now. Trying to focus more on producing than consumption at the moment. Still reading some books, but no regular blogs at the moment. Hey Billy, great article as always! Ive been interested in real estate recently. Reminds me of trading where you place a stop loss to cap your losses whilst your winnings are completely uncapped.
You may loose more than you win, but with the uncapped potential of your winning trades you can still end up profitable. Again awesome post. Only need to take the associated risks that come with such a bet, which are also huge. Back to research and see if the risk is worth it. Send you an email earlier today about it. A friend is doing it currently with 2 other partners and they are only 6 months in and already making a killing. I can do both the reading and the due diligence at the same time.
From past failures to even start, I was getting very anxious about just reading and not being in the street, talking to people, seeing other enterprises etc. So even failures that come from inaction might be used as a way to learn about oneself and do things differently. Thanks for sharing your brain. Probably because we both have the entrepreneurial mindset, and we both love poker, and I have an insane amount of Randy Johnson baseball cards at home. We talked about it before but got mixed up in the IG world.
I love this!! I always check my emails just to look if you have posted again because I love your articels so much! Awesome article. Love the part where you talked about college and how you would play poker all the time. I regret not stayin and learning from you. Be good my dude. As always, great article. Always looking forward to reading your take on the plethora of info out there that can be overwhelming sometimes.
Thanks Billy reading this really changed my thinking. Just wondering your advice in a slightly less typical situation. I do also have some equity in the company, which gives me more upside EV than in a typical job. So essentially the job is mostly an investment in my education and helping me access better opportunities down the road. The main thing holding me back is giving up this opportunity to learn and invest in myself in my job that will put me in a better place to succeed when I do start my next venture.
Just wondering what your advice is on when to move on and do my own thing. Should I just get started right away or ride this out a bit longer? I think both experiences are valuable, but maybe just going for the entrepreneur route right away is actually an even better education. Also in that scenario, when is the right time to quit? Thanks a ton for taking the time and forgoing other opportunities to try and help people.
I wanted to re-read a post where you talked about how you only need to play on level up than your opponent to beat them when playing poker as I never heard that before, but it was so simple in its brilliance. Since reading this article, I find myself thinking about it again and again. Billy, thanks! I always read your articles and listen to your podcasts during my daily commute to university. I am happy to say that even before I found out your blog, I already had a similar approach to my life and my commitments.
And sure it is necessary to do daily child steps in our whole life, relationship and studies included. Reading your opinions, makes my ideas even stronger. Quite funny, today I accidentally found myself attending at my university a conference about engineering jobs. Keep up the great job!
But each book has a unique story to tell. But business an an art, i always love. You know, like you i am a gamble type, but always takes calculated risks in business arena. We also have to tolerate the pain caused in our lives…isnt it… thanks billy once again. Click here to cancel reply. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.

In many sports betting against yourself is banned, whilst backing yourself to do well is fine. Clearly there is a huge difference between betting on your son or daughter to play for England 20 years hence and a cricketer taking money to bowl a no ball at a given time or a certain number of wides in a game. The sporting and betting world have come together to try and irradiate match fixing within sport, with betting sites notifying authorities of any suspicious betting patterns, for example huge bets being placed on markets where normally people bet just a few pounds.
In general, however, punters can bet on whatever they like, it is only the competitors themselves who are subject to restrictions and these are, first and foremost, imposed not by the bookies or the law, but by the ruling bodies of the various sports. As long as the sportspeople themselves receive no benefit, financial or otherwise, you should be in the clear … and remember to pass the tip on to us!
Is this Match Fixing? I had a notebook I was supposed to use for taking notes in class. I used it to track my poker results. Eventually I got better as a result of spending a ridiculous amount of time playing and studying the game. After a while it started paying off. I started making decent money. I remember I jammed up the printers one time with hundreds of pages worth of poker hands I printed out to review.
What is all that!? Similar to how the feedback for entrepreneurship goes, poker went something like this:. In doing things for myself I get significantly greater rewards when things work out, and more importantly, much greater lessons. How committed do you think those people will be? Significantly better results than others, plus significantly more learning and higher level skills you acquire. I was able to use my poker and sports card profits to fund the risk. It felt like boiler room.
I had to hustle up my own creative ways to get leads once I realized the leads I got from the company were worthless. Not exactly long term thinking, and definitely not what I signed up for. There was one point I was driving 1. A call to corporate confirmed I was getting hustled. Those five figure months I was expecting straight out of college were nowhere in sight. I wanted to see what was possible for myself in poker. I remember when I was about to quit the loan officer job I was chatting with one of the veterans of the office.
He was a real slick talking, smooth selling guy. Talked fast, and talked a lot- he was like the Conor McGregor of mortgage brokers, minus the hustle. He showed up like once or twice a week for a few hours here or there, closed a deal and then went out chasing girls.
How are you going to make money? Literally no money. I think a lot of it has to do with most people never having experience betting on or investing in themselves, so it feels uncomfortable and unnatural. Putting in a ton of hours in college not just playing but learning the game, hiring people who were better than me to train me how to get an edge in the current games, and putting an ungodly amount of hands in. At the time, it was more hands than just about anyone had played. I was just hustling harder than anyone else, and pushing my small edges over and over and over and over… 88, times.
A decent chunk of my profit was in bonuses and kickbacks from the poker rooms for playing so many hands. There were plenty of hands I had no idea what to do and felt lost. I would send any hand I struggled with to my coach, and throughout the month got better and better. I wanted to know how to think. I grilled him in every which way, because I understood that memorizing answers would only get me so far.
I needed to understand the thought process behind it so that I could continue to reap benefits with or without a coach. This is something most aspiring entrepreneurs fail to do. Oh I should start a podcast? Throughout poker I hired many coaches.
Sometimes it was just to get a different perspective, sometimes it was raising the level of coach I was hiring as my own level rose, sometimes it was higher stakes players who were crushing a certain game I was moving to. Poker was a bet that paid off big. Once I got rolling with poker, I can remember thinking of potential real estate goals….
Hmm… should I just keep my money safe and sound in a bank? Well, despite negotiating some very good deals, my real estate bets happened at one of the worst times in real estate history. I wanted to launch something to fill one of those gaps. I had multiple people tell me before I started the venture that it would fail. The same way many did when I started playing poker. It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
I launched the poker ventures and quickly turned it into a 7 figure business. I identified gaps in the market based on understanding the current market extremely well and doing massive amounts of due diligence. The ones that would have spotted it and known how and why to pull the trigger were probably just not in that market, or were just busy making other bets. This makes all the difference. So, if I lose, I lose these amounts.
But if I succeed, my winnings are somewhat uncapped. They made the wagers, so they get the spoils when the bet pays off. As you can tell I barely risked much money at all on some business ventures that have worked out. Even when you win at the safe route… are you really winning? You just get the expected result of relatively low upside.
You may lose less, but you often lose by default as a byproduct of never even giving yourself a chance to win the game. I set up my poker ventures in a way that freed up my time to explore other opportunities, another benefit of betting on myself in the past, that continued to pay off in the future. More time to do what I wanted, plus it allowed me the time to explore other business and investment opportunities.
I started off with a couple very small bets, and when I saw progress I bet even bigger. I ended up with around 20 stores. I learned a lot of lessons. I had no interest in the products being sold. The increased knowledge and skills made it easier and easier the next time I place a bet on myself.
ForeverJobless is my current project. Those bets are easier to make because of experience making outside the box bets on past projects. Someone who thinks what you should have done is based on results from a sample size of one.
Those are uneducated opinions from results oriented thinkers, and should be dismissed accordingly. Do not let illogical opinions incorrectly influence your path. If you are not where you currently want to be, answer this with complete honesty:. Where would you expect to be given the cumulative result of all of your bets? Are you anywhere different right now than where you would expect based on all of the bets you have made on yourself or failed to make in the past?
Over the long term, the bets that you have made, or lack thereof, have given you the expected results of those decisions. Usually nothing more, nothing less. In the short term, yes, you can and will get lucky and unlucky. In the long term, it evens out and the life you create as a byproduct of all of your decisions produce exactly what you could expect. As I mentioned earlier, all of your decisions in the past have answered exactly what you are willing give. Most people look for complexity in places where simple equations would eliminate confusion.
I lost some, and won some. I bet on myself, and was mathematically proven to win over the long term. How could I possibly expect my bets to pay off in a similar way to theirs?
