How to outsmart your situation like a pool player?

Tackling the situation: Inspiration from pool table games.

Imagine a situation in your life. Play it like a pool player.

When a win is nothing to do with you start. When a loss is a Mandela loss, the one kind of a loss Mandela denied to accept it as a loss but a lesson that will make it into the ingredients of the next win. This is the inspiration we can read from some pool table games and those who play them. These are games where a win is how things are at the finish. A two-year-old cue (stick), outdated resources can win get someone a win over an enemy with the mos capable stick.

All happens through the cue/stick (metaphorical). There is no physical strength, political strength, etc., required to make the statements, to have something that can sink to claim a win. This game reminds us of a Disney movie, Zootopia. There we witnessed a  bunny cop, the city’s most unsuitable candidate for cracking criminal rings, becoming a hero instead of elephants.

But sometimes you create some space in your play just to witness one you’re playing win through it. This mean, in a relationship situation, when you sign up to be in love, to be a parent or someone special to someone, it takes your losing to have a relationship for both, to have the family winning. Sometimes you have to lose for the sake of your winning relationship and winning family.

You can watch O’Sullivan playing against Wilson on YouTube in the F10 finals. But your need to be inspired by the commentator’s words: Generally Speaking he’s not just playing well he’s playing properly.

As if the manual book of pool table games, someone’s game may be all about blocking your path. Obstacles, in real life, can be humans. Don’t fight them because you can never win. Find your jump shot-way-out. Victory is always about how you managed to drive your vehicle to success in a jungle of setbacks and obstacles.

A tough player invites another (another tough situation) and play to win, or lose but still demands another game. You cannot be a single-player playing alone in a single pitch with six pockets and all balls, faking two sides. Because all you can be is a winless winner.

When you’re playing against a tough situation, it is not every single time you win. When you lose let it be your pleasure to learn the necessities of winning your foe (situation). The winner sometimes is not usually the one who takes the last shots. S/he is the one who doesn’t make a mistake at the last. Ahead is one word. Winning is another. You’re not left behind when you’re not ahead.

Forget about style, Bobby Orr advised, worry about results. Bobby’s words targets you when you are playing against one (a situation) who is good at massé shots (a very difficult situation) which you’re not good at, to not be worried but just to feel adequate because results are what you want at the end, and they alone, not the style you don’t have should not be your worry. Awkwardly, as if Bobby’s advice was a negative Charley Gilkey is with another for us: If it matters to you you’ll find a way. So you better make those massé shots. Jumping over obstacles and hitting straight your target is as if you’re realising that the best opportunity available to you can never be anything else except you.

Hard shots may fail to sink balls while softer ones are good at negotiating pockets and sinking hefty. Sloth it, don’t rush it.

In much of the pool table games. Experience is always the count of games you have played as it is how many you lost but still kept finding new opponents (situations) to fight again.

All happens on the table (also through the stick if you still remember). You just have to do what the table thinks you should to win. Keep your attention in one place. Build discipline relevant to where your attention is.

When someone makes a sting of massé shots and triangle shots, all sinking their targets, but still fails to win. The inspiration here is, A GOOD RECORD IS A WINNING RECORD. The best player knows how to do that a winning player should know what to avoid and avoid what to avoid.

Winning is not a decision you can make. It is an outcome of what you have done.

Don’t rush the break shot. Take your time. You obviously have to scatter all balls on the table and have your cue ball in the middle of all the object balls, and then sink them mercilessly while keeping your position in their midst. If you do that you can be the one sinking all before your opponent does before your situation speaks back. Master the game. If you are to win be in the middle of the situation. When you fail, don’t put someone in a sea of your failures (i.e. don’t blame someone). Be in the middle of your situation. Your situation also includes your falling past and the wins you want.

It is your arms that are that should be at service when it’s your time to cue. The part around your elbow is the big deal in the cueing hand, your hand hold the cue in the cueing hand, the joint that connects the arm to the whole body and collaborating muscles plays also a bigger part. The bridge hand stays idle as the cue glides through or over its fingers. The true fact is, while all this happens your body must be inclined, be all in but not to be the big deal to have you take a better shot. You can’t put your legs together like a saluting soldier while taking a shot because if you do, you’re only complicating what you shouldn’t.

Know how to stand it (the situation) and fight it with what you must fight it with. Only you should be all best willing to achieve what you want to and live like an achiever before you become one. Only you must be all in.
