When I was playing before I retired, I never really understood the appreciation and the respect that people gave me. People had treated me like a god or something, and that was very embarrassing.
Some suggestions for you :
You have to expect things of yourselves before you can do them.
Sometimes, things may not go your way, but the effort should be there every single night.
I do not have a problem, I enjoy gambling, but I think people are trying to make it seem like I have a problem, because people really don't know.
My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
It's absolutely wrong that I don't want guys to challenge me. And the people who say that aren't in the room.
One day, you might look up and see me playing the game at 50. Don't laugh. Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
I believe greatness is an evolutionary process that changes and evolves era to era.
